I've always loved food, there's no secret about that but I guess that over the years I've learned the importance of eating healthy, not only for those who bullied me when I was little for being overweight but also for myself.
I've always been a chubby kid and, as I grew up my perchant for sweets and junk food didn't help matters. But it wasn't until high school (when the bullying behind my back started) that I realized that I needed to start eating better. Now don't go thinking that I had an eating disorder or that I only wanted to loose weight because of what people said, I also wanted to eat better for myself and to prove that you can look good without being a size four.
What I didn't realize was that cutting sweets and junk food from one day to another wasn't going to be easy, and to this day I still struggle but I've also learned that it's okay to cheat every once in a while and that being healthy doesn't mean that you can't have a burger or pizza without enjoying it. As I said above I never had an eating disorder but I do know how awfull it is for people to talk behind your back because you don't fit certain "beauty standars"
But if we're being honest, who determines those standards, who says you can't be curvy and still look good? Nobody does, everyone has the right to be the way the want to be and to look the way they want to look without anybody telling them it's no t healthy. I've learned that and while I'm thinner now that I was in high school I'm still curvy and I'm happy with the way I look.
Moral of this story, don't let anyone tell you how you should look and also don't be afraid to enjoy a milkshake every once in a while, sweets are also good for us.
