I was a very skinny pre-teen but I began suffering from BED at 13 so I was quite chubby at 14. After that, my weight went up and down between 15-17. I became skinny once again just before my 18th birthday and have been ever since.

I was effortlessly slim and underweight until I went to uni and drank my bodyweight in alcohol. That plus the usual student diet completely wrecked my metabolism. I lost all that weight a year or so ago, but now I'm just hooked on seeing lower numbers on the scale for a myriad of different reasons.

I was soooooo Skinny. 

Also, my slender feminine-like bone structure made me look like a girl! I hated it.

So I took up bodybuilding in my 20's.

Gained a whole bunch of muscle

Which in my mid 30's turned to fat when i started drinking beer

And now in my 40's, all I wanna do is be skinny again!

I'm just plain weird! LOL

I was only skinny until puberty, which was like 12 years old for me. I was really fat all throughout high school.

I was until I hit 16. Physically I was, but I was fat in every other way. You're never the same once you get hit with the "I'm fat and need to lose weight" bat.

I yo-yoed all through my teens.

My mom aided in it as well. She would starve me. And my friends would feed me.

I was a chubby teenager until 16/17, when I really focused on losing weight. At 18 I really got stuck into fast food and liquor and the weight came back on ... Now I think I'm back to my early teenage weight ...

I was 5ft9 from the age of 14 and about 120lbs and really good skin. Often mistaken for a model (they were the good days)!


I grew up eating whatever I wanted. Whenever I wanted...


As soon as I hit my 20's I started to gain rapidly, had my first love, stopped being active. Kind of spiralled out of control.


I wish I was that skinny again.

I was an overweight, pudgy child. It was when I had my growth spurt when I started high school and 'stretched out' that I looked more appropriately-sized, and from that perceived weightloss I restricted heavily and actually became quite a slim teenager, up until I finished high school.


I didn't really put all the weight back on fully until my second year of university when I did a semester abroad. Since then I've been slowly trying to inch my way back down to my happy level :)

Absolute rail, but I didn't see it at the time.  All I saw was a blob with big thighs.  I wish I'd see my bony self for what it was.  Maybe now I'd be having less struggles.
