Do You Remember When...

You first realized you got fat?  I remember knowing I was gaining weight, but still didn't consider myself fat.  I just wore looser clothes, no biggie, right?

But the minute I tried to put on some thigh-highs and they wouldn't go past my knees, THAT'S when I knew.  I was devastated!  I had never had a scale in my home, so I had no idea I had gained that much weight.  And then it was all downhill from there.

I had to start buying larger clothes.  Several sizes larger.  And then a few years later, I had to buy even bigger clothes!  Even my "fat clothes" didn't fit anymore!  Eventually I had to go to the doctor and I was shocked to find out I weighed 200 pounds!  That's when I started REALLY looking at my body, and when I finally opened my eyes I could see the fat knees, my back, my arms, my face.  I knew I was fat in the tummy, but refused to see it anywhere else.  But when your boobs START underneath your arm pits, well...THERE'S YOUR SIGN!
