In all honesty, this post is coming in a little late and last minute so apologies for this! It is quite a spontaneous post, I normally plan what I am going to write in advance. But yesterday I weighed myself for the first time in a few weeks and was shocked to find that I have gained weight! 

This is a very big step for me. Those who know me well or have read my pervious posts about this (if you have not, you can click here to read some more about what I am going to say), will be aware that I have really struggled with gaining weight over the last few years. When my anxiety was at its worst, eating was challenging, it often forced me to skip meals and this completely messed up my weight. My weight massively decreased and also led me to have body confident issues.

Seeing as my last few posts have been quite serious and heavy, I thought it would be a good idea if I posted something a little more light-hearted and fun! Having a Monday to Friday job has meant that I have plenty of opportunities to use my weekends and do some travelling around Chengdu! Although it is not the biggest city in China, it certainly is beautiful and has so many interesting sights that I would recommend anyone visiting to see. This post will be filled mostly with photos so, enjoy!

Three weeks after starting my teaching at the school, and I have fallen in love with it! A lot has come with moving abroad and I have dedicated so much of my energy to arranging this trip that I almost forgot why I came here! It’s unlike any job I have had before. I feel completely and utterly relaxed when standing in front of 40+ children, I am right in my comfort zone which makes me think that coming to China was 100% the right decision. 

I have wanted to be a teacher for so long! It still feels so surreal to call myself a teacher and to be called a 老师 (this is the Chinese word for teacher) by the students at the school. Being a teacher is a lot of work but is made so rewarding when I teach a lesson that the students enjoy, it is especially fulfilling when the students tell me I am their favourite teacher too!

During my preparations for China I always found myself saying, “I am so scared to move to China, if I don’t have a panic attack in the first few weeks, it will be a miracle.” Well, I have been here for a month now, and my anxiety has been absent for pretty much the whole time! I am so relieved that my paranoia and constant worrying have not disrupted my meals, work, or exploring. In fact, for the first time in a very long time, I haven’t been anticipating waves of anxiety and have not been worrying about worrying!

It’s been a while since I have spoken about this issue, so I thought I would update everyone with how my troubles with eating food have been. (For anyone interested, my previous posts about my eating habits are here and here).
