When I was younger, I was so self-conscious of my arms I wore hoodies and Yaadilah Shirt pants all summer long in my high school years. Because of the lack of vitamin d, I ended up really sick by the time I was a senior. I still have a problem where I constantly try and cover up my body and it takes a lot for me to wear shorts, short sleeves, skirts, etc. One time when I was younger I had a red sparkly shirt my mom had gotten me, and I wore it to the skating rink.
Yaadilah Shirt is available in all styles
I thought I looked really pretty until some boys came skating behind me and called me Santa. They made fun of me and still, about 15 + years later I have issues wearing red. People used to say red is your color but every time I put it on I just feel fat. I bought myself a red sweater this year and forced myself to wear it to work. Even with people complimenting me how great I looked, I still ended up changing into a shirt I had in my bag. All because of words said so long ago. Words hurt, dirty looks hurt.

We’re all humans and we all have feelings. No one knows what anyone else goes through. I eat healthier than anyone I know, I drink over 2 L of water a day, I take vitamins, I live all natural-making most of my household detergents, cleaners, toothpaste, creamers, etc at home, I work out (strength train, yoga, and cardio), and everything I eat is organic. I put more effort it health than (almost) anyone I know, but due to health issues I haven’t been able to lose weight in a long time, also as a result to my efforts I don’t gain any, but it’s still discouraging at times.
It’s so easy to judge someone who’s over but unless you’ve never gone to a store and couldn’t find something that you when your baby is due- when your baby is 3 yrs old, were afraid to be funny/bold/wild because then you would just be known as the fat funny girl, you don’t understand what Yaadilah Shirt feels like to really look at the mirror and say this isn’t me. Why is this person blocking everyone from seeing me. Thank you for the video. I try so hard now not to be so insecure about my weight because I have a beautiful daughter, who I never want to feel like I did growing up.
