If you follow me on Twitter - you'll know that I talk about Fat or Chubby or Big a LOT.
Well - a wonderful friend who I have a very special place in my heart for has challenged me to stop talking Fat.
The rationale is that all the talk of Fat is being used (by both of us - but in different ways) as blinders to issues that we are not dealing with.
So.......... I am not going to into detail here because I have done so on several occasions previous. But, what I will do - is commit to No More Fat Talk. And it's a simple reason for me - if I talk about it; rant about it; preach about it, then I am simply HIDING from it.
I am currently 120kgs - that's 265lbs. I put on the weight initially due to nesting with my (then) new husband. But then it became seeking solace from how wretched I felt inside due to the Monster that is Clinical Depression. This evolved - as these sort of mental issues are want to do - into a physical manifestation. In 10 years I have nearly doubled in weight.
So now - it is time to stop talking The Fat.
I don't necessarily know what the next step is. But I am actually now genuinely interested to know.
All because, a man with a wonderful heart and a genuine friendship with me, challenged me by basically calling me out.
And I love that he did.
Let's see where this takes me.
Shalom n Blessings all
