The Big Fat Truth
Dec 23, 2010
Welcome to the start of my "Blog" Follow or don't on my journey of weight loss in it's most extreme fashion.
I have started a journey towards Weight Loss Surgery.
I am not soliciting feedback, but need to write, need to express and need to share with the people in my life.
Are you ready? I am.......
Until very recently I never felt ashamed, I was never the victim (that I knew of) of teasing due to my weight.
A little history: When I was 8, we loaded into the bus at Rosy Mound and rode over to the High School for the afternoon to swim like we did every month if I remember correctly.
On this one particular winter day we are all seated on the bench in our swim suits listening to the swim instructor give us directions as to the activity for the afternoon.
My ADD was kicked in pretty good and I was ignoring the teacher and looking at all my friends lined up and down the bench. It was at that moment that I realized, my body was not like the other girls. In trying to figure out why I noticed that I could not see my crotch.. yep.. there it is, I just said that.
I was 8.. when I realized I was overweight.. I did not know what that meant then. I just knew I was different.
