Most of you know that I’ve been fat before, but seeing is sometimes believing.
I thought I would do this post saying I was a size 44 and now a size 34, but I am on this journey and my body doesn’t want a size 34, my legs are just to big.
I left for India in 2007 weighing a heavy 114kg, I have thus ventured to 85kg then 92kg, as I started doing weights to build muscle.
This doesn’t tell you how despite disliking my fat wobbles, I did and ate everything possible.
I loved, hugged, enjoyed every fat part of me. I didn’t let it stop me from living and having fun.
I am smaller now, I am able to do massages for longer without tiring out. I wake up early to stretch and go walking, I do weights
when my body doesn’t ache. This is my routine for 7 days a week.
The fact is like any addict, its a slippery slope – the line is a thin one – I can easily slip into an undisciplined and unloving life.
I love my body as it is now! I feel good! I feel strong and I feel I can conquer anything.
I feel more me.
I too went through a “body” building phase in my life. I could do leg presses of over 100kg, and bench press of 50kg but I wasn’t a nice human being. I was arrogant, aggressive, mean, a wise ass and I disliked me even more.
I love myself now more than ever in my life! I feel content and good for having made it this far on my body image journey.
No! I don’t want a six pack.
I don’t want to be slinky thin either.
My reality is : I want to be FIT and Healthy in my Life!
Looks are pretty but they do fade, if you put to much toxins in you.
A sparkle in my eye.
A wobbly body that’s real.
I don’t think of fat when I give or receive a massage.
All I can think of is giving and receiving Love.
Be kind to your body! Its the only one you have.
Have a good nutritional diet.
Just decide to love and be you!
