This is quite brave of me to post as I have been bullied relentlessly because of my weight. I have been obese my whole life and have only known a short amount of time what it's like to be a "healthy" weight. I hope this post will encourage others to share their own stories. I am not trying to compare or disregard anyone else just sharing my own journey. I regret getting so big but it happened and I have the stretch marks, loose skin and cellulite as a result of it. I just wish people would be more kind to themselves and the people around them, I admit I have treated others poorly because I felt low and that's not okay. Slowly I am learning to love myself regardless of any flaws.
