‘Be­ing the plain, plump one doesn’t Bother me’

Woman (UK) - - Real Life -

Pamela ash­ton, 52, lives in Skelmers­dale. She’s mar­ried to Paul, and has two grown-up chil­dren. She is the sis­ter of Caroline.

I’d love to wave a magic wand and be as beau­ti­ful as my sis­ter. I couldn’t be both­ered to put in half the effort she does! with an el­derly mother and a daugh­ter with autism, plus hor­mones all over the place with the menopause, my ap­pear­ance is my last pri­or­ity.

I’d de­scribe my­self as pleas­antly plump. I’m well aware my sis­ter has an ex­tra­or­di­nary fig­ure, but be­ing the plain, plump one doesn’t bother me, or I’d do some­thing about it.

I’ve been mar­ried 23 years, and Paul has loved me thin, fat, young and old. That’s what mar­riage is, it goes deeper than the su­per­fi­cial.

Since Caroline turned 40, her ap­pear­ance has be­come more im­por­tant to her, and that’s a slip­pery slope. Some­times I look at her in a dress, and would love to spend a day in that body. But then the feel­ing passes. I’m happy as me.
