So the truth is, I’m actually pretty conscious of my body.
This year has been a weird one for my weight – I’d gained 5 – 6kg’s a few months, and I couldn’t loose it, until I went to the doctor and realised that I had an underactive thyroid. Since I’ve been on the hormonal replacement, I’ve lost 3 kg’s, and I have another 2 until I reach my goal weight.
What I realised when I gained the weight was how fragile my self esteem actually was. 6kg’s up and a very thin pony tail later (hair loss is another side effect of an under active thyroid) and I felt horrendous. I was so sensitive. I hated having to decide what to wear because nothing looked right, and anytime that anyone mentioned that I gained some weight, I could feel my eye twitching lol!
