When it comes to losing weight, this isn’t my first party. I’ve had weight and body image issues for as long as I can remember. At my heaviest, I weighed 180 pounds.
Those pictures were taken in the spring of 2008.
(And yes, I am fully aware that I should never…ever…wear my hair short again.)
During the summer before my junior year of high school, I was finally fed up. More than anything, I wanted to be able to look back at pictures and not cringe. After more than a year, I was able to do exactly that.
At my lightest, I weighed 130 pounds. Unfortunately, I didn’t stay that way.
