When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I’ve always thought I was “chubby”, probably since the age of 6 or 7. My parents always said it was just “puppy fat” and that it would go away eventually. I held onto this.
When I started high school I was free to eat anything I wanted, as there’s was no way my mum would find out what I’d been buying from Asda or whatever. I went mad, eating loads of doughnuts, biscuits, sweets and chocolate every single day simply because I could and I enjoyed them. I was very short at this time (as I was only 11, around 4’10”) so any extra weight I put on would have been whiteboard obvious. This went on for pretty much the entire of year 7.
I had my first body consciousness issues in year 8. I’d put on a considerable amount of weight (about a stone in a year) and I’d barely grown at all. I felt fat and disgusting, and all I wanted was to be pretty. I’d also started to have the odd breakout (probably due to all the sugar I was shoving in my mouth) which made me feel even worse about myself. I started shoving on makeup to try and cover it up, which didn’t go very well.
