[The month is over and I never finished this…]
I remember being 125 lbs in 8th grade. That was really the last time I remembered being weighed until I was an adult. As an adult I knew I was overweight, but I didn’t really realize how overweight I was. I went to the doctor at 18 and was told I should seriously think about losing weight since I was going on birth control. I was offered South Beach & Weight Watchers, but I didn’t have the money to pay for either.
I don’t remember ever being thin. I just gradually gained as I got older. I was never tiny, dainty. It was just simply my eating habits. Fast food. Pizza Hut every Friday. Barely ever ate vegetables. I never thought about being healthy. I just liked food that tasted good.
