Am I fat?
I ask that question to myself everyday and no one has the right to tell me that I am fat. I was born as a very skinny child and doctors were afraid I might die, but my mom took great care of me and I survived and now I am a healthy person or you can call a “FAT” one.
Once I went out of state to meet my aunt after my years and the first time she look at me the only word she said “ you are too fat” and literally touch my checks and hands and tell me to lose my weight. I was shocked that the first thing she notices was about my body and that was I am fat.I don’t fell that I am fat, I am 5’8 and 140pounds,big hips, but my doctor never tell me that I am fat. But people around me always keep telling me that I am fat, my family especially. I was thin trough high school but I start gaining wait when I started college. I think there is so much pressure when you are in college and when I am under pressure I eat a lot of food, especially chocolates and junk food. I cannot help it that’s how I control my depression and because everybody is different people deal with their depression differently, but that’s my way dealing with it. Furthermore I believe as you grow up your body biologically changes, your metabolism become slower then it was when you are young or in your teen. But people don’t care they always want you to look your skinny as you were in High school, but sorry I cannot do that.
After taking this class I learned a lot of things about bodies and one of that was every body shape is different and how people will always judge you by your body. But you need to learn that’s its your body and you have the right to control it and I believe that my body is mine and I should have the right to make choices about it and I don’t feel that I am fat.
