What took me so long?

Being curvy is more than appearance…isn’t it? You should be comfortable with who you are no matter what shape you are? Growing up I was pretty average. In middle school, my crush told his friend that he didn’t like me because I was fat. And in high school, I was told by my doctor that I was the perfect weight for my height. Yet, I thought I was still fat. I look back now and think…What was I thinking?? I guess we set ourselves up for disaster when we sit there and compare ourselves to others. Something I didn’t realize until recently. (Yes, it takes this long sometimes.)

Today I am the ‘curviest’ I have ever been and not in the best of health. So, I’ve decided to work out and eat healthier to lower my cholesterol and get my curves in order. Does that sound fair? Lol…but I now realize that it doesn’t matter what size is on the tag. It doesn’t matter what the supermodels can fit it. The only thing that matters to me is that I am healthy and I feel good about myself-inside and out. There you have it, my epiphany for the day.

    Well 1st of all congrats on starting your journey on getting healthy. I am in the same boat, it took my 30 some yrs to love my self the way I am. I have realized its about being and feeling healthy and not about being skinny and a size that is not attainable for me. We have curves so we need to embrace them and love them. I enjoy your blog, keep up the good work!
