I am a pear — big hips and thighs, small waist and bust. When I was younger, I used to really hate my body, and in a world where the skinny is favoured, how can one not detest curviness? I’ve eventually come past body issues — I eat what I want, when I want it, and not let anyone shame me for the shape that I’m in. But it’s not to say that I don’t maintain a certain weight, not for vanity (okay, maybe a little), but mainly for health.
My weight used to usually play around 52 kg to 55 kg before I gave birth, and at 5’6″, I was within normal body proportions. But as Sanji grows up, and as work becomes more stressful than ever, I found myself constantly reaching for that cookie and that soda and that bag of chips, and sometimes after a really challenging day, I eat a heavy meal right before bedtime. These habits not only make me sick (like throwing up because I’m too full sick), but it also lessens my mobility. I am now 62kg — the heaviest that I have ever been.
It’s time to eat healthy. And with that goal, I want to start disciplining myself, kind of a preparatory diet, with the help of the Sacred Heart Diet. And I’m happy to report that my mom and younger sister will be joining me in this mini #BalikKalusuganAtAlindog project.
