Age-23 (almost 24)
I’ve always been more on the chunky/thick side but I didn’t really start getting big until high school. I was always scared of the scale. It was my enemy and I didn’t want to know what number it was going to tell me. There have been many times that I’ve tried to lose weight but always end up getting lazy and stopping but now I’ve finally had enough. I WILL lose the weight this time and will NOT give up. Growing up my friends were always skinny and pretty. I would compare myself to them. I wasn’t fat then just thick but it’s hard to feel good about being thick when you’re friends are size zero. I now have a different mind set. I no longer feel jealous of my skinny friends because I know I am beautiful whether I’m large or small. Also I will get healthy. I don’t want to be skinny I want to be fit!!
