When I was 21, I had a son, Hunter. I separated from his dad and being a single parent was tough. There were times when I couldn’t afford to eat anything but rice and vegetables, yet the pounds were piling back on again. One day, I got an Instagram notification on a photo I’d uploaded. A person had written: ‘Someone’s harpooned a whale.
