I have been overweight pretty much my whole life and tried every fad diet there is going, and for a long time I had the attitude that I was just naturally bigger and anyone who didn’t like that could do one! It was a all a bit of a front, and I remember wishing I could wear the latest trends without looking like a blimp, and feeling self-conscious around my slimmer mates.
That one piece of advice there has taken me through my whole parenting journey so far.
If you’re pregnant for the first time and reading this, and you’re already crapping your knickers (haha! You’ll see why that’s funny in a minute) about childbirth and what’s coming afterwards then you probably should stop reading now.
