I would say I've battled weight all my life. I've never been VERY over-weight until now. I'm at a number that is just no OK! I'm only 5'3 so I've always used that as an excuse that my number on the scale will be higher. I do feel like there is some truth to that though. I honestly don't feel like I weigh what the scale says I do. I don't know if that's because of where I carry the weight, or not. Most of my weight is in the mid-section.
In 2005, right when I met my husband I feel like I looked good! I was a size 11/12, not tiny. But, I was thin!
I think I was about a size 8 my freshman year in high school, but by graduation I was a 13/14. I stayed the same size till right when I met my hubs in 2005, when I had just dropped a few pounds and was an 11/12...like the pic above.
