Hey you, it's okay not to be perfect.

Thursday, 15 May 2014

Today I decided I would bring you a bit of a different post, it's not often I do quite personal posts on my blog so I decided I would share something with you. Growing up I was always the thin girl, I never had to worry about what I ate or didn't eat I always had a skinny waist and up until about two years ago I was between a size 6-8, and my sizes kept going up and up and I just didn't do anything about it just thinking it's only a size 10 and now staring at myself in the mirror I am ashamed of what I let myself become, although a size 12-14 isn't massive it's a shock to me. It sucks because when I was thin all I wanted to do was cover up in dark clothes and now I would love to do wear all of the brightly coloured tight dresses and the short shorts. Although I have recently started weight watchers to get myself back to that size 10 I once knew. I am shocked and annoyed that I let myself get this big, but my love for cake and sweets I guess I brought this on myself. Anyway less about me more about you, during this time when I am upset with my weight I have realized so many other good things about myself, like my smile and my hair and this has made me smile. The reason I am writing this post to you guys is just to let you know it's okay not to be perfect and that everyone has imperfections and that's okay, you can meet anyone in the world, including Zoella and even top supermodels and I bet they look at themselves in the same way you look at yourself and pick faults, but sometimes you need to take a step back and realize that you are perfect in your own way, and although you may not like every single part of your body, you are unique and you are gorgeous. If you are also doing weight watchers or trying to loose weight I'd love to talk to you and hear about your journey.

  1. Great post! It's nice to see bloggers reminded people they are just like them :) Thank you for sharing, I was once tiny and although I'm not huge right now its a shock to have the wobbly muffin top I've never had before but my love for a good take-away and munchies is winning race x

  2. Great post lovely! It's nice to see something so refreshing and honest; you're right that it's fine not to be prefect. I'm sure that even supermodels are certainly not perfect! I think that the media has a huge role to play in what we assume/ think we ought to look like and I assume lots of people, women/ teenagers mainly feel the pressure to be skinny - I believe that as long as you're happy in your own skin then fine, if not then do something about it. But I think that you shouldn't feel that way for the wrong reasons. I have always been happy with my size but lately I feel that I need to hit the gym and tone up. I'm going to be pro-active and do something about it though - I may even blog about it!! Thanks for sharing this great post xx

  4. I really appreciate this message it's lovely to know I'm not alone.One thing I find useful to think is that you aren't likely to look like your 16 year old self anymore,but you look lovely as an 19 year old size 12-14 year old woman.I think setting health related goals is a great way to take the focus of numbers like clothes size etc.. :) Thank you for sharing.xx

  5. Fantastic post. I was like you really thin when I was younger. Ever since having Daniel and the new medication I am on because of my illnesses, the weight is piling on and there isnt a damn thing I can do about it as I cant exercise because of my illnesses. Some days it really gets me down, and other days I just dont have the energy to care any more. You are such an encouragement and a breath of fresh air to people who just cant help the way they are.
