Or just blind?
I’ve lost 6 stone, I’m now 13.5 stone but can wear size 10 jeans, size 12 tops.
I’m still in the Obese class 1 category and my goal weight is 10.6 stone, which would put me at a healthy BMI and allow me to go horse riding at any stables.
So far I’ve had minimal issues although I have had a stricture, which I blogged about earlier so I won’t repeat myself.
My family aren’t small, I don’t consider them big, what I mean is they are all tall, I’m not, so if they have any extra weight as you do overtime, they look good with it. I look like an apple on some legs.
The whole point of me having surgery was to feel good in myself, alleviate arthritis pains, take pressure off my dodgy hip, lower my mid section fat to reduce my chances of heart disease and other diseases and prevention of diabetes of which I was borderline.
So far, it’s worked! Yes I’m still recovering and having my issues fixed, yes it’s a struggle, no I can’t eat big meals anymore but I don’t regret it. I still feel satisfied.
Now people are saying you’ve lost too much, you need to eat more. Are we a society now who doesn’t want to see healthy people? Are we never happy for others? And why not? Incase it reflects on our own misgivings?
When I was at my heaviest I was so envious of naturally slim people, I’d wish they ate muffins, while I tucked into my fast food.
Now, I just know how difficult it was to move around being big and I still envy the naturally slim people but because it’s genetic. They have the right metabolism and I didn’t.
I guess what i asking is why do we all judge without consideration of the bigger picture, be happy of each others success and support them.
Life is not a game to see who wins at what, it’s a personal journey of self reflection, learning and living. Don’t judge others on how they look or what they weigh. Focus on your own life journey.
