I belive I am short legged, I am 5ft 7 or 170cm. I am also medium build. William is 6ft 1. Now I have never really had a huge issue with being short. It’s maybe made me rather over confident in certain situations.
The only negative I feel is that been of a shorter statue, if you gain some weight you cannot hide it very well. When I met William I was about 68kg, 149pounds. Over the years, this waist of mine was about 29cm soon expanded to 33-34cm (13 inches give or take). I became to feel very uncomfortable in my skin let alone clothes. I lacked energy and to be frank, I lost my desire for sex. Maybe that’s due to self esteem or just hormonal.
Five years back I made a very conscious effort to cut out certain foods. Mainly comfort foods. This was very challenging as I also do suffer from odd onsets of depression. Plus medication for depression can play havoc with your metabolism. I am also not that “gym bunny”. I prefer to do exercise at home and do Prefer walking, it calms me and gives me a great time to process thoughts.
Now the turning point for me was last December, I cut back on certain foods and starting doing more physical work around the house. My energy levels are now at peak. I need less sleep and let’s just say my testosterone levels are hitting a ten out of ten.. This was all the result of being more in control of myslef. William has been very fortunate that he has good genes but has also put in some weight over the years, however today his weight is less than what it was when he was 20.
Now this is not a posting about weight issues, but more about choices we make and for me starting to take care of myself first.
