You are beautiful!

#371 It’s time to regain a #healthyeating plan as the events of the last few months have seen me increase in size…#dietbreakfast is both delicious and filling, as well as being slightly upsetting that the pancake stacks need to stop! What has preoccupied my thoughts though is the amount of pressure to be stick thin…#healthy yes, and careful with what we put into our bodies, but we are all different shapes and sizes. I’ve been transported back to my teenage years with the realisation that my body was never going to match up to perceived perfection…(my legs are short and my Auntie used to call me oxo cube because I was as wide as I was tall! I’m now slightly taller and much less cube-like!!) How though do we change this “not good enough” narrative to ensure that girls and boys growing up #value themselves #justastheyare, and that that message continues through adulthood?
