How about instead of complaining you’re fat, do something about it.
I am so tired of seeing so many people make posts on here saying “I hate myself. I’m, fat, I’ll never be skinny wah wah”. Maybe if you spent more time WORKING FOR IT instead of complaining, you’d be where you want to be. Yes, you are allowed to complain, yes it is “your blog”, but if you want something you have to work for it. Being skinny or thin or fit or whatever isn’t going to happen overnight. Hell, it probably won’t happen over a month, but if you actually try it will happen.
For the school dances that you looked terrible at. For the boy who didn't think you were good enough. For the summers you spent in sweatshirts, hiding. For the dressing room mirrors that witnessed your meltdowns. For every compliment you couldn't take seriously. For those who expect you to fail. But most importantly, for you; to feel happy, confident, and healthy.
