True Story: I Struggle With a Weight Obsession

True Story: I Struggle With a Weight Obsession

Honestly, that last time I would consider myself skinny would be at the age of 12. Puberty hit me hard, leaving me with big hips, big boobs, and flabby thighs. Within a few months I changed from a bony, kind of lanky girl to a stocky, curvaceous woman. It freaked me out. It still freaks me out.

How to Make Your Favorite Unhealthy Foods Healthy

Although it may not feel like it (what up gloves in March), but summer is coming. And with summer comes tank tops, short shorts and bikinis.

I Remember: My Journey through Fatness, Skinniness, and Healthiness

I Remember: My Journey through Fatness, Skinniness, and Healthiness

People can be monsters, and I don’t mean in the Lady Gaga sense. They can be downright vicious to others without even realizing the irreversible damage they cause in the process. Though I keep it hidden away in a corner of my mind, I have a lot of memories of this kind of often subtle ruthlessness. I spent most of my young life as “the fat girl.” This is what I remember.
