I’ll be honest with you; life is a roller-coaster. What an absolute thrill it is to enter the world of motherhood. Boy, don’t you know you’re living? Haven’t you felt love like no other? Isn’t it all just an absolute honour and wonder? A resounding YES, damn right, is my answer to all of the above.
And with that ultimate high, my deepest trough is the endless suffering caused purely by my weight gain. As superficial, uncool and trivial as that sounds, it is there, my friends, and I encourage myself to suffer shame at a very deep level on a daily basis.
