Yes, when I got married before in the world, there was a history of bad behaviour from men. So my response was, to hide.
Since I was 19 yrs old I have hidden, men do not noticed a fat woman. And that was comfortable to me. Yes I did get back for a short time, to my size 11.
But again, males were not kind, so now I buy cloths that cover and are decent, most I do not like, but they do the job.
When I see me, in the mirror, I do not like what I see. But again, when so many bad things have happened it becomes a comfortable familiar, that you hide behind.
So, last night I found myself wanting to look like what I know I feel under the fat layer.
I want to feel the smile, I know is hiding behind what I carry around and I want to do it for my hubby and for me.
I am stronger now, and if I do not like the way I am treated, I can make sure that I make my point LOUD AND CLEAR….
No one is ever fat because they want too, they are hiding, either illness or emotions, so be extra kind. It may make the difference…
