she's so fat, it's disgusting", "She'd be pretty if she was skinnier!" We have all been there, being body-shamed. The day you stop competing with others for looks and body, you will find the real 'YOU'.
2 years ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism ( when the body doesn't produce enough thyroid hormones) and PCOD (Polycystic Ovary Disease) which led to massive weight gain. I was close to 80 kilos and was just 13! On multiple occasions, I was subjected to body shaming. It resulted in a lack of self-assurance. The only thing I knew was that if things had to change, it was up to me to change and take command. I made the decision to alter my lifestyle, particularly my attitude toward eating and exercise. However, I discovered along the process that there was a dearth of knowledge about how to achieve the required weight and body goals. In addition, there was an abundance of inaccurate and ambiguous health and diet information. I was determined to figure out the best way to lose weight, so I sought out the perfect trainers who guided me through workout regimens, diets, and exercise routines. It was a long and tough journey from being unable to walk for more than 2 kilometers to deadlifting 70 kilos and squatting with 60 kg. It eventually not only transformed me into a healthy person with no hormonal issues but also enabled me to stop taking all of my prescriptions. We are all just human. If we looked at everyone and saw the same beauty that we see in our idols, our families, and our friends would we act the way we do? If you see someone being treated unfairly, speak up! If you can't speak up then tell someone. Somewhere in the world, someone is contemplating on taking their life because of bullying because of body shaming be a friend approach the people who are so-called "outcasts" befriend them stick up for them in the end we are all just human so why judge?
