It sucks because this should be something that I never have to worry about. I’m always very positive and I never let my weight get to me. About two years ago I started weight watchers and I lost close to 50 lbs. I stopped going to the meetings and no I have gained about 20lbs back. I want to do good again because I feel so energized and positive when I could do things and prove to myself that I could do it.
Weight is a feminist issue. It is a feminist issue because eating disorders is a feminist issue, because bullying is a feminist issue, and because fat shaming is a feminist issue. I want to be a better version of myself not because I hate being myself but because if I was lighter and healthier I would have more energy to write, to be outdoors, I would gain confidence to speak out.
This is my last try in Weight Watchers, in a month (by June) I want to lose at least 10 lbs. By my birthday (September) I want to lose at least 30 lbs. I will use all my strength and will power to do this because I believe that under this woman that still has insecurities about her weight, is a woman who is confident and alive.
