This is not a regular WIWT post. I’m posting this to join The Nearsighted Owl‘s “I’m Proud of My Size Link Up #21“.
It’s not like I set out to be fat but I just am. Also, I am not exactly “proud” about my size as it’s not an achievement but I’m not ashamed of it. I’m not hiding it under tents and I’m not pretending to be a size I’m not.
To be honest, I am constantly trying to lead a healthier lifestyle – quit smoking and drinking 2 years ago, and I’m also making myself exercise whenever I can. Health has nothing to do with size. I am ok with the fact that I might never lose weight but as long as I don’t need to be airlifted and I am healthy enough to take care of myself, I don’t mind whatever size I am! My happiness is not directly related to my size or shape!
I like that nearsightedowl says “My weight doesn’t come with a apology or preface on how I am working on it.”
So here I am!
I am a UK16 and I’m 1.5m (5 feet) tall.
Thanks Pearlyn for taking these photos!
