Daily Post Prompt: THIN

Click here to join in with today’s prompt

In my dreams.
Yep. I have never been thin, well, not thin thin, not even as a kid.
I was kid-shaped, if ever there was such a thing, straight down, no curves.
Plain, flat chested, I suppose you could’ve used me as a spirit level.
I loved to run, loved to play outdoor games and sports.
Then I went to grammar school.

Different ball game here. Bullying isn’t just by the pupils you know.
One particular member of the PE staff started me on my quest of self doubt, stripped me of my confidence, and made me a nervous wreck afraid to put food in my mouth when she was on dinner shift duty.

In 1973, things changed in the household and we were two miles from the nearest bus stop. I had to walk. Got a lot of blisters on my feet too, but I had to work.
I lost a lot of weight. It just fell off. Nobody noticed though, until I went shopping for clothes as dresses in my usual size dropped to the floor in a puddle of cloth.
I levelled out for about 4 years, then got married, and the yoyo of weight watching started again.

I’m still struggling, but accept that I’ll never be thin.  I have curves though……… they’re just all aiming outwards.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
