I kept my baby fat for longer than most kids. When I was in elementary school I was called names that still sting. I was made fun of for multiple things, but the phrase "Fat Cow" is probably the one that sticks in my head the most. At 24 years old, weighing in at a whopping 125 pounds, I still hear those names in my head. It has made me terrified of gaining weight, not because of health issues, but because of what people might scream at me. I never want to hear those words again.
