Enjoyed your comments on Indy Girl's blog.
Sorry for your experiences as a child. I was the only one of six children who had a weight problem but my mother taught me "You can do anything a skinny girl can except get into a size 8 dress". This has been very helpful all through my life as I have never been thin. At this stage I just want to be healthy.
Best of Luck on your journey!!!
