Go Figure

by Colleen

I have an "hourglass" figure and have had it since I was about ten years old. I have friends and a sister who are always saying they admire my curves but I always feel fat because of it, because my hip area is really big. I (still) want to get back to my size four years ago in my first year of high school, when I was 98 pounds. I was totally healthy-- I'm really short, so it evens out fine.

But now I'm about 30 pounds heavier than that and I'm still trying to figure out whether to work on my body or on my body image. :)
