    Stupid Pants

    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 struggle with my weight,

    I've always been a bigger girl and it's starting to consume my soul! Everything hurts these days... Even a little sunlight can put me in a negative mood.

    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.
