Yes, I'm trying to eat less and eat better. I don't drink sodas hardly at all anymore...once in awhile I'll have a diet coke or something. My weakness is chocolate
But I am one of those people who has battled weight their whole life. I was born at over 10 pounds! I've never been thin except for when I used to intentionally not eat. In my 20's I used to starve myself. I would eat nothing but water crackers on most days. But that was years ago, and clearly, that wasn't healthy anyway. As you get older, it gets harder to keep the weight off. But I am trying with small changes.
You know, i'm not sure everybody was meant to be thin.
I think we all naturally come in different shapes and sizes, and a naturally cuddly lady can be just as pretty as a naturally thinner one. Its sad that this thin-obsessed culture we live in that girls in their teens and twenties like yourself feel the need to half starve themselves. My personal feelings on the subject are that if a person is naturally bigger then as long as its not impacting adversely on their health then they're fine just the way they are.
Acceptance of ourselves is such a healthy thing. Being bigger doesn't automatically mean the person is unhealthy or unattractive, nor that they need to battle with themselves endlessly in the pursuit of thinness.
I'm just not a fan of this one-size-fits-all attitude nowadays, particularly when it comes to the ladies because they tend to suffer the most from it, sadly.
I mean come on... a life without chocolate? Is that really a life worth living i ask!?
