yes, I was very athletic. I was a gymnast for 10 yrs. My weight became a problem for me when I started having children.

Yes. I tried to give blood while in college and was told that I needed it more than they did because of my size. Work took care of the low weight thing. Every promotion added at least 10 lbs until I'm working to lose the gains now that I'm retired.

Yes. At age 18 when I took my induction physical I weighed 112 pounds. Underweight. I saw the scale but they lied and wrote down 120 so they could take me. I was 130 when I got out of Basic Training six weeks later.

Might have been normal, but hearing that I should "keep eating, girlie!" made me conscientious of my weight from an early age. I look back at even my younger days of adulthood and see that I looked fine, but thought I was overweight.

In the 50's all kids were thin except me. I was heavy and unhappy being the only fat kid in grade school. Or one of maybe two others. In High School I was thin because I starved myself. Thus the start of yo yo dieting began. My journey this time was the most I ever had to lose to get back to a normal BMI.

No! And I started dieting in grade school! Drank lots of Tab & Fresca and started on the road to many crazy diet fads. Thankfully, I have finally wrapped my head around the fact that it is a lifestyle change. No more crazy diets for me!

One day at a time....sometimes one moment at a time.

I was stick thin until I hit puberty and then I got some meat on me. I was never heavy until I got in my 40's. Now, it feels like if I even look at food I gain weight. It has really gotten disgusting lately.
