Default accepting your size

I found your story interesting, and I too feel that dieting is an exercise destined to fail. I have yo-yo dieted over the last two decades plus, sometimes serious at losing, sometimes accepting gaining. I'm 5' 7". I started off in 1995 around 190, have gotten as low as 178, am currently 241, near my recent high of 250. i seriously try to eliminate many foods during lent, (3/1 to 4/15) including no alcohol. I expect to be down to 220 by Easter. I realize that the yo-yo dieting has health risks, but if I did not do it I expect I would settle in at a higher weight than I feel comfortable with.
I accept my size, and enjoy how it feels and looks. I tire of family members that feel it is their duty to shame me into becoming a diminutive size I would have no interest in. I am glad that you too are have accepted and even appreciate your size. We are who we are. We are not someone else.
Good luck on your journey and welcome here.
