I wanted to be a size 8 at all cost and I went to great lengths in a bid to achieve that dream. I hated myself so much, especially my plumpy body. There were many times I felt my body was just being “stubborn” and preventing me from becoming great???. But I eventually had to accept myself and the fact that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. And that one could be size 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and so on and still look beautiful, especially when it is coupled with a beautiful heart and a positive mindset.”

  1. You are doing very well bro., God bless you and keep it up. But I have a problem, in as much as you want to capture our attentions, the captions used shouldn’t deviate that much from the contents of your story because trust you me that honestly if I should have that misconception for two or three times, probably I may not take delight in even reading stories of such sorts anymore. Thanks very much for your corporation and adherence. Keep the flames on……
