I was self-conscious about my weight as early as 4. I remember looking at my reflection in the mirror as my mother did my hair and I told her "I'm so fat." And refusing to wear certain clothes.  

 

I didn't start actively trying to lose weight until I was about 11 or 12 though.

10/11?  Maybe earlier, I remember measuring out cereal and milk to mind calories.  But I remember distinctly at one point I was so excited to have eaten under 400 calories throughout that entire day, I can't remember the age but I remember that moment

Like ten or eleven? My idea of dieting at the time was eating exactly as much as I would normally but with the addition of one or two apples a day

Yes I continued to gain weight lmao


I tell myself I will not go,

even as I drive there.

Somewhere between 9-11 years old. I just stopped eating lunch in school and oddly enough no one forced me to. I remember a few teachers coming over and asking me why I didn't have anything for lunch but I just said I wasn't hungry or something, they walked away, and that was that.

Same. I remember (around the age of 5) looking at my older sister who was always heavy and thinking I didn't want to have fatty arms like her or struggle to run like her. Which may seem mean but I was always very protective over her, I think I was just learning from her mistakes.

I remember when my wiifit told me I was like at risk of being overweight I started to get insecure. And when I was in size 14/16 clothes as a kid in my mind I was like in only 10 so I must be fat. I don’t think I actually actively tried to lose weight until 7th grade when my friend would always comment on the size of my thighs and legs. I weighed less than her but all her weight was in her stomach and she had thinner legs than me. To this day I’m still really insecure about my legs but it’s mostly genetics. My mom and sisters all have the same tree trunk legs. At lower weights my legs can look really thin from the front and I can have a thigh gap or whatever but from the side they’re just... thick I guess.

I know I've always been self conscious of my weight since I was a chubby kid, but I never took action to lose weight until I was 13. 


Who will fix me now?

Dive in when I'm down?

Save me from myself

Don't let me drown

Who will make me fight?

Drag me out alive?

Save me from myself

Don't let me drown
