Body Positivity and Me

Body Positivity and Me

As I sit here, on the floor with my laptop on my knee, I’m snacking on some WW Mixed Fruit Gums.

Sometimes it wins and I get the chocolate, then the bowl of cereal, then the bread and butter etc. Some days the willpower is strong enough to push those thoughts away and…
