As a young obese child, I weighed roughly 230 pounds.
Growing up heavy in a group of smaller children really made my school experience difficult. I always felt like I didn't fit in, and I was very depressed at times. Two years ago I decided to make a life changing decision: to lose weight. I decided to eat healthy and exercise. The first 50 pounds was easy to lose, and I felt amazing. Losing the other 50 pounds was extremely difficult, and I often became frustrated and gave up. But with time and dedication, it happened. I lost a total of 100 pounds, and I haven't felt any better about myself. This is my story.
