This is something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while. It shouldn’t be some taboo conversation that everyone avoids; it needs to be addressed in a matter that doesn’t romanticise it, but shows it for what it really is: a nightmare and a reality for a lot of people. So I guess this is a trigger warning, I don’t want you to read ahead of things such as depression, anxiety and self harm trigger you in any way. ❤
Just received the letter from my surgeon which requests the early release of my superannuation. Part of the letter made me feel like I was punched in the stomach…
My biggest trouble has always been food, I struggle to feel full. I could be bursting at the seams and 30 minutes later be ready for more. As an overweight (or according to my BMI, morbidly obese) woman, it is believed I produce more grehlin than an average built person. Grehlin is the hormone that, basically, makes you feel hungry. And I have less of the hormone called leptin, which makes you feel full! Sounds pretty simple, right?
While 2016 has been off to a rocky start (for those who don’t follow me on Instagram – I had my gallbladder removed a week ago), I have big plans for myself. I’m a little nervous posting about this, as I don’t want anyone to misunderstand. But in the following months I’m going to begin making some serious changes to my life.
The number of plus size bloggers popping up around the place is reason enough for celebration, but hold onto your hats kids, because I’ve decided to throw myself into pot too. And titling my first official blog post with lyrics from High School Musical is just some of the fantastic shit you can expect to find here.
I’m a 22 year-old student, living in Brisbane, Australia with my boyfriend and our two cats. I spend my free time not wearing pants, reading Harry Potter and eating frozen grapes (and by frozen grapes, I mean Nutella, straight from the jar). And before you asked, yes, I had absolutely no idea what to write about myself.
2016 is the year of something new, something exciting and something absolutely terrifying. And the reason for starting this blog will hopefully become apparent in my next blog post.
Until then, peace out.✌🏻️
