Smiling through insecurities

26 May 2019


Hope you have all been well. Recently, I have made small changes to my life such as diet changes, going to the gym and socialising more and now feel so much better - physically and mentally. It can be so easy to allow insecurities to cripple you and I am very guilty of that. It is also one of the reasons why I started blogging as I needed a space to be me. I wanted to discuss what my insecurities are - which is my weight. I know that I really hate the size that I am currently and I am allowed to do so, even if I hide it well. I know that I am an emotional eater and that when things are tough that I will eat. It is why although I have gone from a size 10 to 14 - I don't see that as the end of the world. It really took me a while to come to terms with that, being from a Nigerian background: I am constantly reminded of my size and compared to my slimmer sisters. I take those "you should lose weight, where did this weight come from or cut down on the yam" jabs weekly, but eventually it does eat away at you emotionally. I know that I will lose this weight but that that will take time. 

“Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time,' is like saying, 'I don't want to.”
