I'm fat


 Weight loss is a terribly difficult thing to reconcile in my mind.

On one side, I want to say fuck it and not give into the societal expectations that tell me I need to be skinny in order to be happy or find love and that I should enjoy my life and the sensations that come with it like food and not have to be ashamed of it.

But on the other side it’s extremely difficult to maintain a body positive image when I do in fact desire love which seems less likely to occur while I’m overweight and I do want to be healthy and know what it’s like to be a “skinny girl” and that sort of socially constructed image makes me ill but it’s there and I can’t ever make it go away.
