Yes, you heard me correctly, 'I have fat.' Its started creeping up slowly, coating the tops of my thighs, cushioning my bottom and giving me a tummy which represents more of a cottage loaf than a muffin top!
I've noticed my chin is starting to get a little comfy and is inviting its friend to join it. My back appears to be growing boobs of its own and all in time for wearing a slinky little number at Christmas.
Am I OK with this? Yes and no.....
I'm not going to start getting depressed, living on lettuce and power walking to work. I will rationalise my thoughts and put this into perspective.
We all have fat, some more than others. We need a certain amount of fat to keep us warm, protect our internal organs and store energy. Unfortunately my fat appears to have settled rather unevenly, so what can I do about it?
I will certainly not diet, I like cake and cider too much :)
Exercise is difficult at the moment due to hip pain.
The only way forward is acceptance, this is part of me and will stay here until it is ready to shift sensibly.
My belly does not make me have a bad day at work, it doesn't stop my family and friends from loving me, it doesn't affect my ability to enjoy myself on an evening out.
I have fat, I am not fat.
