Move Charlie!

I’m not the tiniest of people …
Ok fine I’m huge … ly in love with myself! Mmm 🤔 perhaps not quite as direct as I intended but it gets the job done.

I can sit here and blame lockdown for my increased … uhm … capacity these days, and blame the dryer for shrinking clothes, and pixies for shoes that don’t seem to fit anymore. But ultimately it’s all on me.

114 days ago I stopped smoking. Yass! Whoop whoop! Awesome! But this was not my own doing though 😶

114 days ago South Africa implemented radical lockdown measures, banning tobacco, alcohol, visiting family, being outside even. As I didn’t make the decision to stop smoking, I managed this sudden OUT OF STOCK situation by substituting cigarettes for food. Big mistake! Welcome to my new footprint 👣

I’ve reached the stage now where body dysphoria has become much worse for me. It’s not just seeing the wrong person in the mirror now, but also seeing a body I’m literally sickened by.

No I’m not falling into depression. Ok yes, but it’s being managed. Tonight I’m starting … lawd I hope I will start and not be lazy … tonight I’m getting on that flippen walker I bought 5 years ago and start walking. I will. I must. 😢

… cmon Charlie MOVE!!!
