    I am not fat but I am not skinny.

    I was skinny when I was little but as I grew older I started gaining weight (especially in my arms) and I hated it! I'm now 19 years old and 5'1 and I weight 140 lbs. As I said I'm not fat but I'm not healthy. So I'm trying my damn hardest to lose 20 lbs! I know I can do it!
