“Starting in 3rd grade I can remember being bigger than all the other kids. But then as the years passed I continued to get larger and larger. By the time I was in Junior High, the bullying began. I started learning to not be noticed, to sit in the back of class and keep quiet. Whenever I was picked on or made fun of, my self-defense mechanism was to just “laugh” with them, so that it would appear to be all in good fun. My fight with diets started in high school.” Read my full journey from the time I was bullied to now being able to bike to yoga.
