Finding Healthy Happiness

There are a lot of things that have been going on on social media, I mean if you saw it over the last few weeks there has been a lot of chat from a certain brand which has sparked chats within the blogging community! I mean I have been attacked quite a bit about my size to be quite honest, I have a thick skin, or at least I try my best to not let things get to me but I’m kind of sensitive especially when I work so hard on my weight!

I have to make a point that health comes in a variety of different sizes, now people might not think that and that is okay, I’m open to people agreeing to disagree! I work out 5 times a week with a lot of different strength workouts throughout the week and I’ve lost 10 dress sizes, but does that make me an unhealthy person?

I’m not a healthy size, and I’m definitely not a healthy weight, but I’m working on finding my own kind of happiness!

I think in terms of my own mental health focusing on a certain weight or a certain size honestly gets me so upset and in such a rut that I can never get out of it.

Finding healthy happiness is a personal journey, and even though there are so many huge influences around you, you have to do what you need to. It is your body and that means it is your rules!

I’ve lost 10 dress sizes, I’m not saying the answer is losing weight for a lot of people, for me it is, because I want to get pregnant at some point, I WANT BABIES AT SOME POINT! The most important thing for me was the fact that I need to make sure I have a healthy pregnancy both for myself and to make sure that my baby is healthy.

When it comes to your own lifestyle people sometimes feel the need to comment on it, for example before I went vegan someone came up to me in a restaurant and said you should be drinking more water because you obviously need to lose weight. Honestly why would people even feel the need to comment on my weight or my body!

To the people who feel the need to comment on other people’s bodies:

This isn’t your body, why would you feel the need to open your nose into someone else’s business? Just because you see what is on the outside, doesn’t mean it’s the same thing on the inside. I eat very healthily, I also workout and treat myself on the odd occasion treat myself to a cake, why shouldn’t I?

My life is about balance, I’m finding healthy happiness in my life with my body. I’m not going to love my body all the time, but I ‘m going to treat it with love and care.

Don’t comment on anything that you don’t know about, don’t comment on someone’s body, someone’s weight, they way they look it’s not the way you do things!

What do you think? Leave your response in the comments!

    I haven’t/didn’t see the twitter brand comment thing, but I wanted to leave a comment on here and say that no-one, fucking no-one, has the right to make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. You’ve lost ten dress sizes and right there is an achievement. Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you’re not beautiful because you’re fucking stunning babe. Sorry for all the swearing but I adore you and think you’re sensational. ??✨
    With love, Alisha Valerie. x |

      It was all over social media, I’ll message you about it to keep you updated, but basically it has hurt a lot of people, mainly because people are judging from the way someone looks on the outside, I still get judged and I’ve lost 10 dress sizes. Sometimes you have to get to know the person before tarnishing everyone with the same brush! Don’t be silly, I know you’re a passionate person and I adore you for it! xxxx

    All the yes to this! It does my head in when people decide to make assumptions on how healthy someone is based on their appearance – they don’t know them, they don’t know their story, and most importantly – it’s none of their bloody business! Balance really is key, and that goes for everything; including attitudes. Really interested to know what brand you are referring to as I didn’t see anything (although I am brand new to blogging). High five to you for making this point on here, and on another note, you’re beautiful!

      Thank you so much Sophie it means a lot. It really hurt me because I’m clearly not a healthy size, I’ve been working on making sure that I get there because it is important for me to do so. I totally agree with you my lovely, it isn’t anyone’s business but unfortunately everyone will have an opinion, which they are allowed, but it’s important to respect people xxxxx

    All that matters is that you’re working on it! You’ve started a process. And that’s the thing, like most things in life, it is a process.

    Luckily, you have a strong mindset to be handle any unfortunate and unnecessary negative comments that you receive, but many others are a lot more fragile!

    People are really disappointing sometimes, but then, some people surprise you in the best way- like you!

    You’re incredible! Keep doing you, gal!
