My parents went through a bitter separation and I started gaining weight. 16 years later the weight never left. "Thank God you're tall!", people tell me. But, then again most are afraid of me. I look like a over-sized Amazon woman! (Remember futurama, snoo-snoo?) After I turned 8, I've always been between a size 18-24. So far I'm a little over 300 and a size 22. I'm almost 5'10 so that's not that bad. I still excersize and take walks, no doubt. I'm a big woman, that's just what I am!
