I’ve been fat since I was a child. I’ve joined weight loss groups, tried fad diets, and been stuck in a cycle of restriction and binging. The latter led to unhealthy relationships with food and bulimia. None of those things made me thin, and they certainly didn’t make me healthy. Most importantly, they made me unhappy. Only when I began to accept myself, as fat, did I begin to find happiness.
I know that I cannot realise my bisexuality physically, but I feel happier having made these steps on self-acceptance within myself. I am feeling OUT and I am feeling PROUD.
