"I have been chubby since I was a little girl, it was brought to my notice in 2nd STD . Fat-shaming was persistent since then till my adulthood. The thing is it's not just an appearance issue , as a child I had to develop weird defense mechanisms to keep me going because it's not just school but your friends outside of school AND family . I would shame myself, hate myself, then started gaining more weight to rebel which in-turn worked against me .

Then I joined an industry known for unhealthy beauty standards! The FAT SHAMING AND SEXUALISATION started on a much much MUCH larger level than I could handle .

My body and I have been in a constant state of war with each other for a very very long time and I was getting tired , I couldn't convince the world to accept me as I am , I couldn't accept myself either so I started out with fad diets - Low Carb, exessive excercising , Keto , Juice-ing - you name it .

NOTHING WOULD STICK. Why? Because I hated my body and I was doing all of these things because I hated it soo much , I wanted it to stop existing & become something else , something against my adult understanding of what is healthy, beautiful and fit .

I had to fix my relationship with food, with my body, my mind and my belief systems . I needed something sustainable , something to replace all this unnecessary bullshit standards and dialogues around me . I wanted to be an authentic version of me that I would love.
