Does everyone have one main thing that's stuck with them through the years when they were overweight? I have several.

The main one for me happened when I was 7, I wasn't a big kid by any means, bordering on skinny, but I did have a belly.

I started ballet classes and I was all for it! Still to this day anything Tulle has my heart. My mum bought me the tutu, slippers and leotard and I was in love. I went to my first class and danced like I was in the nutcracker :) really I thought this was going to be my life. Anyway after class a couple of the girls teased me about my belly sticking out of my leotard. I cried and never went back to another class. Stayed with me forever. kids can be cruel!

So last weekend I signed up for ballet classes and had my first one in 30 years yesterday. I absolutely adored it. Onto bigger and better things and letting things go! :)

Hi, Sassafras--and greetings from ACT!

I have a memory from around the same age as well, when I was shopping for school clothes with my mother. We could never seem to find pants that fit me right. A sales clerk said the problem was pants that fit me in the waist were way too tight around my huge butt. I was self-conscious of my butt for decades after that, which was always disproportionately large for the rest of my body.

Stay safe!

Actually, I'm a permanent resident from the U.S. living in Canberra--but you will find quite a few Aussies here.

It’s good to know a few Aussie’s (US Aussie transfers) to know what products people are buying. We can’t always get the US ones here.
