Dear Chubby Plump Girls,
Listen to my wise words. Don’t listen to anyone that tells you that your face is so beautiful, don’t let the bullying skinny girls get to you, don’t let your fears get in the way of anything. I wasted twenty four years of my life being sad, and feeling like I was worthless. I am so happy right now and I am in the greatest place. I have never been more in love with myself, and I don’t have anyone to thank but myself, and Dr. McDreamy, well because, you know.
I had dinner last night with a lovely young girl who inspires me so much. She has so much confidence and doesn’t care what other people think. She puts herself above the skinny b!@#$ and she’s the cool and fun one that everyone wants to be friends with. When I was that same age, I couldn’t believe the awkward mess I was. I would walk around with my head down and look like a loser, or start laughing like a hyena just to get some attention (that just made it worse though, because then I would attract attention to my large self). It’s also so nice to see how much love surrounds this amazing girl, I wish I had that kind of support growing up. Jemima, you will accomplish great things, I love the way you love yourself, and I am so jealous of your level of confidence!
Confidence doesn’t come easy, just as you start losing weight. It’s something you need to learn and it’s hard to love something you’ve hated for 24 years. It’s a slow process, but I’m loving it every step of the way.
Just the obese girl
