2017 update. Spark Friends I miss you terribly. I never quite understood how people couldn't find the time to update their Sparkpages, food logs, etc when I was so active on SP, but now that it's been YEARS that I've been off, I find myself relating so much to this. Please join me on MyFitnessPal if you're on there (username = kristonibologna)... Right now that's about all I can muster, but I'm hoping to find more BALANCE this year.
Written January 2009 -- Ever since I can remember, I've never felt like the skinny girl. Even when I was nearly 100 lbs skinnier in high school, I felt like a cow compared to my thin friends. After gaining some weight towards the end of high school, I felt even worse. I lost about 15 lbs on weight watchers before I went to college, but when I met my beautiful and thin college roommate (who is still one of my best friends) over six years ago, it was what you might call another ego-crushing moment!

Why is it that people always need to compare themselves to others? I suppose it is only human nature. In six years I have gained ~60 lbs and a lot more neuroses, but in some ways I couldn't be happier. I have a wonderful boyfriend, I live in one of the coolest cities in the world and I am alive! I joined this site to try to help myself change myself... not so I can look like a Hollywood celebrity, or even look like my best friend. From now on I am only going to compare myself to myself. Setting tangible, realistic goals, and only hoping to become a better me. Not a better somebody else.
