So, I guess Ill never tell anyone im fat, I dont really like the word, but I have come to accept it, because honestly its just that, a word. Ive always wanted to lose a bit, but just for health reasons and family health history, because people..I love my body! Its fun at times, but a bummer at others, I've got the chest to fit into the pretty tops, but then other times a slinky dress isnt exactly flattering. However, I've come to live with this lovely self that I am.
Recently we were brought into the world of Weight Watchers, and let me begin with, and in no way or terms am I paid to write this post. So, with that said, approximately yesterday, we both began the weight watchers journey. I never realized the things I put into my body, and the multiple tastes and snacks that I ate without realizing it. I don't think I have the full picture yet, but after a long night of cooking last night, and measuring, and being careful, I realized that those things were important for me to live a healthy lifestyle. I can still eat, by golly I CAN eat, but just smarter. Im not talking salads and nothing else all day people, Im talking REAL food!
So I hope you will all bear with us through this journey and help support this great decision we have made. Its really not a "weight" thing, but it is...weight is important and you cant be too overweight because of the health effects it takes on your body(short and long term).
So here is to us! I hope you all understand this journey and understand that I still wholeheartedly believe in "fat acceptance" and loving your body.
