When I was obese I always felt like I WAS the elephant in every room that I went into. I spent my whole life kind of wishing myself smaller so that I took up less space. My dream was to go through life and not be noticed at all. When you are a large person, you know that people are looking and you absolutely know that you are being judged. I am not yet used to being smaller, even though it has now been a couple of years since my weight loss journey began.
My life is so very different from how it once was! but that has really come at a price. When I was 100 kilos heavier my life was limited. I was usually the largest person in any room, I felt self conscious and uncomfortable in my own body. Now, oh now how different my life is!
