Ive never been that "perfect size". I never felt like I was a size that fit me . always had that mindset that I was a big girl. when your like that majority of your life you have to learn to LOVE yourself, and realize that just because the media says that skinny is in doesn't mean that your not beautiful . I love being full figured and If I had the option to be full figured and healthy I would be, but I don't have that option. just like majority of Americans being obese comes with many health risks . I am almost 21 and I have high blood pressure, joint problems and an eye condition that can cause me to go blind . I want to enjoy life as long as possible, that is why I chose to go with bariatric surgery . :)
