The photo on the left was my first Instagram selfie. The photo on the right is my most recent, and by that I mean just this morning. I’m posting this not to criticize the way I look then, I’m doing this to remind myself not to treat myself the way I did before. Not everyone will understand but I hope this will shed some light to anybody who’s going through the same phase. Being big, being a plus size woman isn’t bad, in fact, for me it’s amazing. But we must also focus on being healthy. I remember all those times when I just ate whatever I want without hesitation and control and haven’t even bothered trying to sweat it out. I used my size as an excuse for a very long time. “I’m gonna eat as much as I want to. I’m fat anyway.”, that was my mindset. Only now that I realize how wrong it was. Being fat IS NOT an excuse to disregard your health. I don’t mind being big, I love my body just the way it is. I mind being healthy. I eat what I want, in moderation. Everything becomes easier when you do it with love. Don’t force yourself to become skinny, there is NOTHING wrong with being one, it’s just that every body is different. You cannot force it to be something that it can’t.
