I am fat. Yup. Fat.
In my case, it is actually due to my thyroid packing it in, then going undiagnosed for several years.
I have always been senstive about being fat, especially as there is really nothing I can do about it – diet and excersize will not shift it, I just have to wait for it to slowly slowly come off now my thyroid levels are ok (daily drugs as complete thyroid removed).
At the park the other day, a little fellow asked if I had a baby in my tummy.
Without even thinking about it, I told him No – I am just fat.
At which point his mother damn near fell over.
I realised that I far far prefer the honest and non judgemental question of a genuinely curious child, to the nasty little whispers, laughs and pointing behind my back that their mothers indulge in!
