So today I want to talk about something that is really close to me personally and also something that effects millions of people on a daily basis.
I'm not exactly a thin woman, I'm curvy and I like that but I'm not healthy.
I'm going to be starting a journey to lose weight, not because I feel like I'm not sexy if I'm not thin; but because I want to be healthy. Something I don't feel I am because I can't walk fifteen minutes without feeling out of breath.
The thing that bugs me the most is how women believe they should be thin to fit in with peoples expectations. Because for some reason everywhere you look in social media has something to say about what they think is normal.
Everything is so focused around size that we forget the most important part, health. Thin people can be just as unhealthy as larger people. Not only physically unhealthy but mentally as well. The stress some people put themselves under to look 'perfect' or try to look perfect or even the stress that we don't fit in with social expectations.
Who cares? We shouldn't be focused on the size of our jeans or how many rolls we have, we should be focused on being healthy and looking after our bodies. We need to be comfortable in our own skin and like the way we look, love the way we look even.
So I'll be doing some progress blogs, letting you know how I get on :)
Let me know if you have any thoughts or advise :) (I also don't own the copyrights to the picture above)
Until next time :D
