Weight has always been an issue in my life. Whether it was me, a family member, a friend or a co-worker, how much you weigh and what size you wear has always been a hot and sensitive topic.
Growing up I was not overweight; in fact, I was pretty athletic. I loved playing sports – in the spring and summer it was softball and in the fall, volleyball. On most non-school days you could find me outside playing with the kids from my block or out with my BFFs . I was always on the go, always doing something. I like the way I looked – thin and toned and I never thought that weight would ever be an issue for me.
