I have this flash back often of me being in the 5th grade, and for some reason we had to be weighed. Of course, it had to be in front of everyone. Of course, I had to be the only over weight kid in the class. The scale and the nurse read out I weighed 150 lbs, while my class mates gasp and snicker.
I have been overweight for 20 years, and I'm finally done being "the fat girl". Growing up I was always told that I have such a "pretty face". As if to say I would be really pretty if I wasn't fat. At least, thats what I always heard implied.
I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 12 which hasn't helped. Along with never being able to succesfully keep weight off I was told I would never have kids. Although, when I was 25 I managed to drop 50 lbs and eventually did get pregnant. I did try for 5 years with no success before that.
Today, I have a healthy happy 1 1/2 year old daughter and a great great loving man by my side. The two of them are my world. I'm doing this not only to give myself a better life, but to be able to be around longer for those who need me. Also, eventually we would like to try for another baby. Wish me luck as I wish the same to everyone else on this journey!
