Ht. 5'6", Start: 214 lb, Today: 216 lb, Goal: 180 lb - I'm a plus size person and for as long as I remember I have always been obese. My weight makes me so self conscious and so insecure that I hate myself. I'm constantly adjust my clothes to try to attempt to hide my body but I know people still know that I'm fat. I don't like shopping with my friends because I usually can't buy clothes at the same places as them because they don't have my sizes and I usually just end up buying jewelery. I feel embarrassed and ashamed of my body. I'm a natural blonde with blue eyes and there's the stereotype that blondes are supposed to be super pretty and thin; but I always feel like there's something wrong with me and I'm not good enough for anything because I'm not like that society's idea of how blondes should be. I always try losing weight but it never seems to work out. I wish I had more self confidence and felt good about my self; I feel like losing weight would help with that.
