My Tummy Has Never Been Rounder!I am officially the largest I have ever been. I am 5'3" and weigh 155ish with an hour glass body, except now I've got a belly! My gain took a long time to happen with only a few spurts of weight gain. My weight first shot up in 7th grade, my mom would buy me lots of fast food lunches that year and we would eat breadsticks after school together. I was still growing, I started 7th grade at 4'11 and 90lbs, and shot up to 5'1" and 132 lbs. I started watching my food and slimmed down to 120 by staying active, I played a lot of sports growing up. I even started high school at 5'2" and 115, this was probably me at my thinnest.
I had another big weight gain at the end of my freshman year. It started at a lunch after my cousin's graduation. I ate so much Italian food, I was so stuffed and for some reason I started eating more to get that same feeling. My weight crept up to 120 just from that one weekend and by the end of the summer I was 125! I tried to work it off but I think I would end up eating more from stress! I was stressed about school, social stuff, and I was self-conscious about those extra 10lbs! I was pretty good at hiding the weight with most of my clothes but I continued to fatten up throughout the year. And the more weight I gained, the more I hated squeezing into my cheerleading uniform designed for my 115 body.
I started junior year at 5'3" and 135! I went on a diet after the first time I ever ran and felt my stomach jiggle! Lucky for me, I also got a gym membership. My weight ranged from 125 to 135 for the rest of high school and first half of colllege but I looked thin because I was athletic with toned muscles, whenever I was on the higher end I looked curvy. When I gained weight, it would eventually move from my stomach to the boobs and butt.
When I was 19, I started to soften. I remember feeling like a sausage in my dress at sorority formals, I was 150 around that time! College was making me lazy to cook my own food and work out and it has caught up to me! I have been around 155 for over a year now. I'm probably close to 160 when I'm in school with no access to a scale. However, for the most part, I always felt just curvy until recently. Most guys still wouldn't call me fat by the way. It was the last few months that I've felt rounder looking. I even bought shapewear to hide it. I went to a wedding recently with a friend that I've hooked up with before and commented last summer that I'd put on weight. There was a strange moment where I found him sitting by himself in the hallway. He told me to sit on his lap and I did. We talked for a little bit. I felt like a sausage again because of my shapewear and it felt like it squeezed all of my fat into one area. When it got quiet between us, he put his giant hand on my gut and shook it shouting "I love your sexy little tummy!" I was so embarassed that he was playing with my "little tummy" but at the same time, it felt nice to be held there. I feel like I'm enjoying this tummy now, and the way it goes nicely with the rest of my curves!
