TW: weight loss
I’ve always been a bigger girl. Ever since I was… oh… at least in elementary school.
I remember when I was in 2nd grade, a boy called me an ogre.
I’ve been fighting with my body ever since, forcing myself into clothes too small, listening to my own family criticize my weight.
It wasn’t until I moved out on my own, and started really examining my body for what it is (a temple) that I really understood.
Maybe I should loose some weight. But not because my body isn’t beautiful, but just to make myself healthier.
I will and have always supported those who are considered an “outcast” in today’s society. Because today’s society can be so cruel. Even to the most beautiful people in the world.
Just as a disclaimer, I’d like to add it’s important to know that pursuing weight loss is not a healthy route for everyone. Thank you for submitting! - Haley
