I remember being in kindergarten and pretending I was having a baby. I have always had a pot belly. Never been fat, or at least what my idea of a fat person is, but I hold everything in front of me. I'm 5'2 and weigh 145 at 23 years old. I spent years being told by my peers that I was fat and I carry that still. Many people asked when my baby was due, or would just flat out say I was fat. I was in show choir in high school and was one of the smallest girls in the choir so I was often in lifts. I had the same two guys as bases for all 4 years and one spent all 4 years telling me how hard it was to lift me because of how fat I was. I look forward to the say that I no longer hear their voices echoing in my head. I take what happened to me though and try to stop it from happening to anyone else.
