OMG what a relief. This is something I wish we talked about more openly. I feel like the shame from this whole topic is when we hide it. I gained 60 pounds from my health issues and people just stair and think I’m pregnant and I just want to say “it’s ok I gained weight and I’m kinda fat right now, no worries.” People get so uncomfortable with the transparency. It’s like let’s just laugh about it and move on. But stop trying to convince me you can’t tell that I gained 60 pounds bc it’s a load of crap. And when they lie I feel more ashamed bc I’m hiding it and we aren’t just coming out with it. THANK YOU?! PS gaining weight also taught me to stop hyper sexualizing myself it was a real Blessing.
