There is a debate regarding a comment a singer made about the plussize clothing available in shops. I have no idea why she was bothered by this, I certainly only care if they have on stock my size for the item that I want to try&buy. I think any woman should be able to buy clothes from any shop.
I use to be fat and had no issues with it. In 2009 I was gaining pounds due to a very unhealthy lifestyle. I was drinking endless cups of coffee and I was eating only once per day. While I was fat, a few shopping assistants told me they don’t have my size and I thought they have a terrible stock control system, now I know they were trying to be snarky. I had no idea what size I was, never bothered me, I tried what I liked, a bigger/smaller size if that one didn’t fit and that was all.
Having some health concerns, in 2010, I’ve realized I was overweight and I’ve started to loose weight. Friends and family told me I’ve put on some weight, but as I felt beautiful, it didn’t matter.
I’ve lost that extra weight and now I’m doing my best to keep it off. My motivation is the way I feel and, of course, the health risks that being overweight can cause me. I eat 5-6 meals a day, I exercise and I try to have an active lifestyle.
From 2011 until today I’ve oscillated between size 8 and 10. I finally know my size as it’s so helpful for ordering online.
Amazingly, as a size S, I still got a snarky comment! I know that some women are struggling with their body image which made me reply in a firm way to that lady. Some people are just impolite.
