WL Writing Prompt #5

What is your history with weight loss?

I’ve been trying to lose weight since middle school. I remember telling my football coach I had lost some weight and he went off on me. He wasn’t happy because I was a lineman and he wanted me to be like a wall- I was already so much bigger than the other kids I had to wear one of the high school helmets.

I then lost some weight after I graduated and gained it back and I continued this process for the last 25 years or more. I’ve lost 80 lbs here, 100 lbs there….then 140 lbs but I never figured out a way to keep it off and always turned right back to food.

The moment stress hits, I give up and turn to food.

My history is getting severely bullied for being the fat kid and constantly feeling ashamed while giving into the addiction endlessly.

Love, Peace and Sharkyness
