EXCERPTS: "Being Small Doesn't Mean Self Love I've never been big, not my traditional standards, but I have been skinny. During my teen years, I had eating issues. I had an abusive mom, who also had a serious mental illness, and so eating didn't happen often." “I will be turning 50 this year. I weigh around 250 and really wanted to lose over 100 pounds before my birthday but that isn’t happening.” “I honestly struggle with loving myself each and every day. Most days I don’t love anything about myself, but other days it’s easier to find something about myself that I like. While growing up, I was told I wasn’t good enough, and that has been deeply ingrained into my very soul.”
