Give up yer aul sins

The dog ate my homework, oh no, sorry, that was me!

Picture by

I know I'm 5 foot 4 but I'm very big boned for a very short person.  Those doctors just don't understand me at all, I really am big boned. 

I really believed I was big boned, as in I was not lying I really believed this.

Not that I am disagreeing with anybody on this one, however, are you using it as an excuse?  and if you are I am still not going to argue with you!

Yes, there are a huge amount of changes happening to your body and your natural rhythm is all out of sync.  Don't allow this as your tool to determine how you feel about your body as a more mature lady.  Being fabulous has no boundaries, but you create the boundaries of your own beauty.

I was devastated, if it wasn't that what on earth could it be, I had done the research, I definitely had it, then I got a call back from the doctor himself,  allelujah, here we go, problem identified. 

Nope, just letting me know that my calcium was low and my iron? 

Why did I have all of this weight on me

At that time, I would have rather have a life threatening disease than take responsibility for my own weight problem. I searched for excuses beyond the
