I have always been teased for my weight. I have been overweight my entire life, and my classmates in school weren't afraid to let me know. I played sports year-round, and my teammates would call me fat on multiple occasions, saying I wasn't good enough to play. Although I did have plenty of friends through the years, it still hurt me every time someone made a comment about my weight, but I would try and hide the fact that it really upset me. It got to the point that I began to put myself down so others wouldn't get a chance to. I'm now a 21 year old college graduate with a 10 month old baby boy. I'm very happy with my new family. I just fear for my son. I would never want him to go through what I had to go through.
