Thank You For Your Criticism

I would just like to take a post to be clear with everyone about my blog. My entire life, I was fat. I never got to experience the joys of feeling good about myself, and I never once got to feel like I loved myself. Excuse me for once in my life thinking of myself as “the skinnier girl” or feeling like “the skinny girl”. I appreciate everyones support in reading my blog, but to be honest, if you don’t like what I have to say, no one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to read this. One thing I have learned from the blogging world, is that the more attraction your blog gets, the more people will have things to say. So be it. Say what you want. Thanks for reading though.

For the first time in my life, I am happy. Even if I stay the weight I am at now, I will be happy. This is the healthiest I can ever remember myself, and I love myself. Did you hear that? Should I repeat myself? I LOVE MYSELF. I love the support from everyone around me. My relationships with friends and family, especially my mom, is better than it’s ever been. I finally gained the confidence to tell the bullies and the bi#$s exactly how I felt. I finally have the confidence to walk around in hot pink pants and not feel like everyone is staring at me. I finally have the confidence to hold my head high and feel proud of the person I have become.

This blog is my journey through weight loss. My stories, my experiences. I have been through so much being the fat girl, that I am entitled to call myself a former fat girl, or a soon to be skinny girl. I am entitled to make fun of myself, and if that offends anyone, I don’t apologize, because this is my forum. I don’t need to change the way I write for anyone. I shouldn’t feel ashamed to say how I feel, and I certainly shouldn’t hide how people tortured me. Yes, here and there I may make fun of fat girls, and skinny girls, but to be honest, we need to stop taking things so seriously. This blog is not to make anyone hate themselves, and certainly not to make anyone hate me.

Find yourself, and love yourself. Period.

    I’m happy for you. Continue to embrace who you are and who you’ve become. Because no matter who you are or what size you are you will always have haters. So good luck on you journey.

    Totally get it. TOTALLY. You get noticed, you get criticised. Love how people will vilify you for giving YOUR personal take on YOUR personal experiences about YOUR personal life. I had one woman write an entire blog posting about me last week skewering me for my take on my personal journey. Fascinating how tightly people can get their knickers in a twist. And pitiable.
    I LOVE that you’ve gotten to a place where you love yourself. Few people can say that. Very few. Stay strong. You’ve got someone on this side of the Atlantic who admires you deeply- pound for pound ūüėČ
