My Body Stories
I was a "big girl" most of my life. At age 8, I was six inches taller than my best friend. I'm now six feet tall so I've never been considered little. I tried lots of weight loss gimmicks throughout my lifetime. I was on Weight Watchers half my life. I took phen fen. I drank Slim Fast. In my late 20'a, at 350 pounds, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery. My lowest post-surgery weight was 180 pounds. I determined my stomach wasn't the problem. It was always my brain.
More Than My Body
I'm a sophomore in college currently. I have a fast metabolism and I am very skinny. I am the only girl in my family other than my mom. I am Autistic so I prefer to buy clothes a size bigger than necessary. I eat healthy but also enjoy junk food in moderation.
