Today, I did a thing.
I finally, at long last, took a step towards accepting my new reality.
I filled a charity bag with all the clothes I will never fit into again.
It was a difficult and challenging thing to do – it felt as if I was saying that, even if I do lose weight, I will not ever be buying my clothes in the kids section again.
I truly marvelled at how tiny some of the pieces were… was I ever that slight?! Really?
So, there are some 11 year old girls in Chernobyl that will be getting a stash of jeans and tops soon…
…and I must accept that my days of being a waif are over.
