Hi my name is Christina. I once weighed 245lbs, I was a size 18/20. I am now a size 8/10, at my smallest I was a size 6.
This body is mostly stretched skin, I am now the proud owner of a pizza dough belly. My frame is carved with opalescent stretch marks due to it’s sensitive & pale complexion. I am not nearly as small as you may think nor as fit as I wish to be but I am getting there.
Due to the fact that I have this jiggly belly & arms & thighs, I have to work out TWICE as hard & intensely as others because my skin is unforgiving & I need to double up the muscle I have in order to keep it as firm/smooth as possible.
I live with a reminder everyday that my body is not like most of the population. I will never have an aesthetically pleasing birthday suit.
I’ve tried to kill myself over my body, I’ve also strutted my shit naked & had people kiss my toes. All because & in spite of my body. I’ve dated drop dead gorgeous men, I’ve had passionate sex with some of the most intelligent & gifted human beings I’ve ever encountered in my life & it was not due to the fact that I was a size 5, small framed & had nice tits. I can guarantee that.
I don’t have time or energy anymore to deal with people who make my body more important than me - including myself. Neither should you. Work your muscles, specifically your heart & brain.
Start loving yourself, the world will be a kinder place to exist in once you do. That’s a damn promise.
