For majority of my life I’ve been fat. I mean the weight gain took off when I was about 6 years old.
Looking back it could have been a multiple of things, watching my mother be abused, us being homeless, poor eating habits that my Family and community had. Lack of exercise (it was not until recent years have I seen majority of black folks exercise unless they were athletes).
The one thing that I never saw on TV was anyone that spoke to me where I was at! It was always think about you future self, get back to your old self, “What about my present self?”
I was asked when starting Chubby Diaries, “Why don’t you tell fat people to lose weight and you won’t have to have this platform?” My answer was simple and one that I live by today is “There are enough lose weight, be a better you” out there… NEW FLASH! I lost the weight and still was not satisfied with myself and I find that people who are “FIT” “SEXY” still have body issues of their own.
There’s nowhere like it on the planet for wildlife, wild lands and rich traditions that endure. Prepare to fall in love.
