I believe I was even overweight in the womb, so I guess I don't recall ever being thin. I was somewhat unhappy and embarrased as a child, being the fattest one in the class. I compensated by being nice to everyone, even the ones who didn't deserve it. I also learned to use humor to hide behind my hurt feelings.

I did lose 90+ pounds two different times using herbal shakes, but you just can't live on those forever. As soon as I was tired of them, the pounds came back like gangbusters!
