I hear all these people dieting, my biggest fear for those people is letting it consume them. I do not diet. I never have and never will. I drink soda, I eat chips, candy, fast food. I will not diet. I lose weight at rapid speeds and never notice it. I lose weight and then stay at one weight for a while and lose weight and I don't gain any. I weighed 115 before my daughter; I gained 74 pounds( I was at the bridge of diabetes),I now weigh 130. I was size 00. I look back and realize, that is not healthy. I like being a size 3. I don't have to worry about how I look, because I love myself. NEVER call yourself fat. You need to love yourself. If you don't who will. I love myself, I love my stretch marks, and my love handles, and my little bit of chub. My body has changed but I feel more attractive. I will never let my daughter call anyone or herself fat. She needs to know self love. You need to love you before anyone else. Self love is important to me, I think everyone needs to look in the mirror and say, I love you. Love your flaws and all. Love your imperfections, and you stretch marks, chub, it is you. And right now that is what you are; even on a diet it takes time. So love yourself for the moment, it is who you are. Don't spend your time obsessing over the pounds you need to lose, just love yourself.
I've been big my whole life, so was my mom. I watched her have 2 heart attacks in a day, go through stomach stapling and immediately become a diabetic, watched her puree every bit of food so she could eat.. then I watched her go through absolute hell when the stitches popped.....
God made us all shapes and sizes, and he will return us home the same way, regardless of what size we fit into.
