I am a twenty-something stay at home mom. I have been dealing with weight, body image, and healthy living since I was 12. A family member told me I was getting chunky because I was 106 lbs, but I hit puberty early and was already 5'5". So, that coupled with mean junior high students sent me on years and years of yo-yo dieting. I grew up in a house where a home-cooked meal meant freezer pizza, so I didn't really know anything about proper nutrition and cooking.
I hide my pretty well, so I was able to fool myself that "I'm not so big." I hit my highest weight, 230, when I was pregnant. I decided no more, so I have been working to try to get into better shape.
I want to watch my son grow up, and I want to be able to play at the park with him. I want to not pay the 2 dollar fat person tax they put on plus size clothing. I am also learning to separate self-worth and body image. I am much happier with myself than I have been in over a decade.
