Okay... so I’m not what you’d categorise as a ‘beach babe’... I’m fast approaching 40 and I’m overweight.
I have spent years letting my weight define me. I’ve not enjoyed so many things because I have felt self conscious about how I would look to other people.
Yes I’m constantly trying new diets and yes sometimes my weight gets me down but do you know what? I’m a bit fed up with it!
This year I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone... 2 wolf runs (the 3rd one in a few weeks)
I climbed Snowdon and didn’t die!! My first 5k park run
And this week I’ve been body boarding in Cornwall. I wore this suit, down the beach all week. I was afraid that people would stare as it’s not very flattering but I didn’t care. In fact, with the exception of one very rude family who had something to say and laugh about to each other (reprobates!) I don’t think anyone else cared!
I’m still trying to lose weight and increase my fitness. I’ll get there when I’m ready. In the mean time I am loving life! 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻 #weightwatcher#theflexeffect#weighwatchers#weightwatchersflex#biggirlscandoittoo#bodyboarding#bude#cornwall#weightwatchersjourney#fitfor40#rockchickgetsfit#chunkythighsprettyeyes
It’s been many years since I shot photos with @shanechalkerphotography in Tuncurry. My home beach, the place where much of who I am as a person as well as a wave rider has been forged - it’s the only beach where I feel like I’m home.
I might be looking into things too much, but since Shane was the first person I ever shot photos with seriously in my career as a bodyboarder, this image of his daughter @millieechalkerr launching spray into my face on a little right-hander at Peak Bank might symbolize a kind of changing of the guard around here.
Unfortunately, bodyboarding participation is disturbingly low in the teenage years at the moment (also in surfing), but Millie is flying the flag, remaining passionate and wanting to develop her riding. She is the next generation in my eyes and I wish her every success.
PS: I encouraged her to drop-in 🤙.
Thanks for the shots Shane!
