I have always been very very very skinny. I was 109lbs until college. I gained about 10 in undergrad. But I was still way skinnier then everyone else. I hated being skinny. In the African American community we value curves, see health and beauty as a body that has meat on it, and think women who are vulptious are the most beautiful. Because of this it made it that much harder for me to be black and skinny. I worked for years trying to gain weight, no matter what I tried it just never worked. Of course, the moment I stopped trying I gained 20-30lbs in 2-3 months. I know that sounds unhealthy, and it probably is. But I am so happy with who I am, what I look like, where I have been, and who I am now. The moment I stopped worrying about my weight and just become secure and happy within, is just the moment it showed itself outwardly. I am HAPPY :)
