Ever since grammar school I have had a constant battle with weight issues thanks to a particular teacher saying I was fat.
That was way back in 1967, and I wonder how many other pupils lost their confidence and sense of self-worth because of this Bully in Gym Shorts who thought she had the right to ridicule us in front of our classmates if we were not the ‘perfect weight’, did not run fast enough or were no good at climbing rope.
Thanks to her and years of yo-yo dieting, I screwed up my system good and proper and thus began another battle of convincing it that I wasn’t in starvation mode if I missed breakfast.
It’s one battle after another, but I won’t be defeated.
