Growing up, I was always aware that I was the biggest of all the girls at school. I have never been obese, but I have never been thin either, not even as baby or a toddler, so when puberty hit and I became bigger, I quickly assumed that I was biologically meant to be round.
It was not a problem. I had many good friends, I was doing well in school, my family was loving and caring. Even if I was aware of being different from my girlfriends, being overweight did not make me sad or prevent me to enjoy my teenage years.
