    Thirty Pounds Seems Like So Much Yet So Little

    Let me start out by saying I'm 5'10 and about 185lbs. A year ago next Wednesday I was 245lbs. I moved to another state to live with my grandparents after my grandfather had surgery. I got a job up there working in a bakery. Guess what, they made fudge. It was my job to pour the...

    Stop and Stare

     One of my biggest fears is people accusing me of being fat. I am very overweight, but the issue is best described as the elephant in the corner (pun not intended :D). I often forget I'm fat. I hate the feeling I get when I realize just how big I am when I see my reflection...

    I Am Overweight

    Do I really hate being overweight?  Cause if I really hated it, I would have done something about it.  If I'm not doing what is supposed to be done, then it means overweight is working for me and this is how I want to be.

    I hate state, teacher's, bosses' paternalism. With parents being paternalist is more than enough. Paternalism makes infantilised adults with no accountability for their actions.
