I almost let myself fall into the lie of thinking I was disgusting and worthless because my wetsuit doesn’t fit this year. For a brief moment, after struggling to fit in (a blooming workout that particular task is) I collapsed on the bed as the first few horrid criticising thoughts came into my head. Then I stopped myself.
I am a big girl. But it does not make me a worthless person. I have fat. But it does not make me disgusting. I am not going too let an extra half stone, and an inability to do up a bloody zip, dictate the mood of this holiday! I will be with my husband of almost ten years, a man who has seen me at every size and continues to fancy me quite literally through thick and thin! I will also be with my wonderful children, to whom I want to set the example that beauty is more than a size or a hair style or a face covered in make up. I am blessed to have been given these wonderful people and we will enjoy our holiday!
I’ll just be body boarding in my swimming costume and a long sleeve top 😉
Never forget you are more than your size, your height, your hair colour, your leg length, your exam grades, your number of friends, your number of admirers………..
