This is a genuine, honest and heartwarming piece of writing Holly! I am so proud of you for expressing yourself. Most people don’t realise that pulling others down does not pull themselves up! You are right in saying that weight loss can totally be an act of self love. What you are trying to inculcate with your actions is discipline and self control and that is also an act of self love. Doing something for yourself us also an act of self love. I am genuinely proud of you bcoz you are working on taking charge of your health. Not everyone has the courage to acknowledge that and execute on it. Keep going and keep inspiring ☺
