Ever sit and stare at yourself naked and wonder… Where did I go wrong? I do. I think back to my childhood and remember the day it all went sour, when I tasted the forbidden fruit known as…. Soda. The neighbors kid had everything she wanted, high fat, high sugar, and the gut to prove it. I was a gangly child that loved the outdoors, trumping through my imagination and inventing new animals.
Yet, I am now in my twenties, gone through hell and high water and forced to reckon with the disaster I created. The one thing the rules me and my life. The reason I am the elephant in the room at family functions and the reason I am not in a relationship like the lot of my friends and acquaintances. Weight. Bad choices + bad emotions + food = a long f*cking hard as road. Yes. I AM FAT. But, what no one can deny, is I am doing something about it.
