I woke up got myself together I felt pretty. Being overweight can sometimes make you feel bad about yourself. It has this ability to make you feel less than.
Maybe it’s the glances you receive while in public, or the snickering you here behind your back in a restaurant.

Words can be hurtful but they can also motivate.
