Ok I am a skinny girl trapped in a big girls body and this is what I mean.
Growing up I was picked on for my weight which really hurt. This is why. I never thought it was that bad. And I would tell myself this. However I always hated looking at pictures of myself because then I could see the difference between me and the person standing next to me. Shoot growing up we had a picture window I loved this thing because it was my full lenght mirror, since we didn't have one in the house. When I looked in it I was thick but I wasn't fat. But Again I would go to school and the kids taunted me. To the point that I was depressed. I pushed myself to get over this I began to become comfortable in my own skin. By the time I got to college I wanted to show people that I was beautiful even at 200+ pounds i did art work displaying that (See Picture in Album). I never understood why my mother or sister would give me a hard time.
It was only recently that i reliezed how out of control I was and that they pestured me because they loved me. But like most things I had to figure this out on my own. This time with 2 big mirrors in my Bed Room I noticed that I didn't like the way I looked or felt. I decided that I it was time to change. i did it once for the wedding, that I could do it again this time making a complete change. This time i want to actually find the skinny girl, not because of looks, but because of my health. I don't want to be that couch potatoe any more.
Instead of being resentful at my sister and mother. I love them and they inspire me to do better. So with this journy i truly wish to find a new me and bring those i love along the way.
