It has come to my attention that some may think that I don’t support weight loss or weight loss surgeries.
I support self love and I would love to see every woman, big or small, to love yourselves no matter their size.
I struggle as a plus size woman to love myself, but I also know that women that are not plus size, struggle with insecurities as well.
If you don’t love yourself as a bigger woman, you won’t love yourself as a skinnier version.
In all honesty, I would most likely have the gastric sleeve (if I could afford it). Not for vanity purposes, but to feel more comfortable in my own body.
Do I think all medical problems disappear after weightloss?? Nope, I know for a fact that some health problems follow you after weight loss.
That being said, I do think that being overweight comes with its own set of problems. Such as back and joint pain from carrying that extra weight. And extra weight does make it harder to get around.
So I absolutely support weight loss and weight loss surgeries for better health.
I personally don’t think people should depend on weight loss surgeries to help them feel better about the way they look. If you don’t love yourself, the way you are, then no amount of surgeries will help you to love yourself more.
I personally want to love myself 100% the way I am and I don’t want to think of weight loss as a way to feel prettier or more attractive.
I still struggle with my insecurities and I am learning to love myself but I know I am not quite there yet. I do know that if I lose 100 pounds, I will still face insecurities, until I truly love myself the way I am.
So in conclusion, I support weight loss and weight loss surgeries, my only hope is that women will see their true beauty before weight loss and do it for the right reasons. Remember, you will not love yourself after weightloss if you do not love yourself before.
Stay Beautiful my friends!
