Truth: I am at my heaviest weight right now. I’ve even signed up for a gym membership because I’ve started to worry about my health. I need to start being more active because in all honesty, I am not a healthy person. Eight hours a day in the same seat at work has turned me into a very inactive person.
But it’s never too late to improve your life :)
However, this does not mean I will hate my body in anyway. No matter how many people talk to me about how concerned they are, no matter how many magazine head lines shout “ Get that beach body today!” or “Lose 10 kgs now!”, no matter how many plus size actresses magically shrink to half their size and claim a new found happiness, I will not compare my body to anyone else’s. I will not buy into the bullshit that everyone should look a particular way to be allowed a fun day at the beach or a club or anything in life. After many years of struggles, I am finally at a stage where I am comfortable with my body and nothing is going to steal that away from me. I’ve worked too hard for it.
And I’m super excited at the thought of working out (ok no, I hate treadmills!), swimming, trying out zumba, belly dancing and just feeling better about taking care of myself. That being said, I enjoyed a lovely day at the beach in my new BHS swimsuit. I was not the only fat girl and in a place like Dubai, you find women of various nationalities in different beach wear. It is awesome. It just goes to prove that everyone is entitled to a day at the beach no matter what she looks like or what she’s wearing. There are no rules, it’s just a beach and you’re supposed to be relaxing and focusing on your fun. Trust me, most people are too concerned about enjoying their time to care about what you’re wearing.
Have a great day!
