It seems as though most days, I'm obsessed with losing weight. I look through magazines and immediately I'm bombarded with images of beautiful women with the perfect figure, articles about the latest diet-craze and fashion which is definitely not suited to the bigger woman.
So I tell myself that once I'm slim, I can wear the clothes I like, when I'm slim I will look fantastic, when I'm slim I will feel fabulous!!
But what about now?? I take no pride in my outfits as nothing I like fits me or what does fit me, I don't like. I've had the same haircut for as long as I can remember and I don't experiment with my make-up. Funnily enough, this is all reserved for when I lose weight!
I need to accept who I am at this precise moment and love the person I am, I need to stop telling myself I will do this and I'll do that once I'm slim. I need to start living and enjoying my life, as I am.
So here I am, completely make-up free and unfiltered.
I'm still on my quest to eat healthily and exercise, I still want to lose weight, but I have to stop letting it define me and taking over every decision I make.
This is my life whether I'm plus size or a perfect size 10 and I'm making a promise to myself to accept who I am at the present moment.
