This is Lisa's Story --

Do you have any idea what it is like to be "the fat girl"? To watch as other girls are asked to prom, have guys constantly flirt with them and you are practically invisible...

Honestly there were times I wish they couldn't see me. When you hear the snicker and laughter as you walk by. That sticks with you. Even after I lost the weight, I still had "fat girl brain". Scared to interact, scared to be extroverted.

Just because somebody is heavier than you, is not a reason to make them feel bad about themself. Why do you have more self worth or value than me? Because you workout? Because you eat more carrots than I do?

Fat does not equal less-than.

I would rather have a lot more pounds on me but be a better person inside, than be like you bullies, thin and ugly on the inside.
