I have been going through pictures from my high school career recently. I went to high school from 2003-07. I was always over weight and looking at this pictures makes me wish I did something sooner about my weight. It is what it is now.
The only time I ever did something was in middle school. Mom and I joined Weight Watchers and I lost over ten pounds but something happened and I stopped the program. I never was healthy until 2012. I have only been like this for two years and I am always nervous I will go back to my dreadful younger years.
The picture above was during a chorus trip to Myrtle Beach and I was sixteen. I remembered not wanting my picture taken in my bathing suit but I was told that I was fine. I had to be over 200 lbs in this picture. How could a awkward teen want their picture taken this way?
I did not know any better. I only knew being fat. I did not know that I could live a healthier life. I thought life was junk and processed food while being lazy and not working out.
Now I know life is not like this. If you live like I used to then you will not live long. As for looking back and regretting, I should not do this. Yes, I was over weight but that is my past and I have great memories in that past…even if I was an awkward teen.
