Well a little back story before I begin 

First let me just say I’m pretty late to the grey’s anatomy boat but this show is just too good I go through seasons so fast and now I’m up to season 7 Episode 16

Let me know whats your favorite season?

Anyways so when I was younger all my cousins were pretty skinny and I was always one of the curvier girls however in a Spanish household they consider you fat

I hadn’t realized till now that their was nothing wrong with the weight I had back then and that the influence your family has on you was tremendous 

Anyways I would always try these diets and try to lose those extra 20 pounds until I got to college 

And let me tell you when I got to college I gained so much weight probably like 40-50 pounds in a span of 2 years 

And it had a tremendous impact on me because again my family made sure I knew about the weight gain and my cousins were still skinny 

Now being the odd ball out is hard because you don’t feel worthy but a couple of weeks ago I’ve been having stomach pains (really bad ones) and I decided that I need to change my eating habits

And although I love food, I also love my life and I know that I have to do better for me and for no one else

And this took me a really long time to understand because before I would try to lose weight to get more guys to notice me or to get my family to be happy with the weight I was 

But now I realize that any change I make to my life is for me and has to be for me and to all the curvy girls that want to stay curvy DO IT! screw what anyone says!

Curvy girls can be fit and now all I want to do is eat better and become fit! 

Side note: Im LOVINGGGG how society is now loving curvy girls

YAS to the thunder thighs and the little rolls 

Let me know your experience with weight gain or how you dealt with your family 

Some curvy girls that I adore and look up too!

  2. I’m so happy to have come across your blog post 🙂
    I’ve always struggled with my weight so much… I too was the odd one out – my sister has always been like supermodel skinny and obviously, everybody would compare me to her.
    Because I don’t really know anyone like me, it really felt so comforting to read your post! We need more people putting things out there…
    Keep writing inspiring posts!

    Maria 🙂

    1. Thank you that meant so much! I completely relate with you and am happy you enjoyed my blog 🙂
      My purpose for this post is to do just that to post about issues people wouldn’t want to talk about.

  3. I can totally relate to your story! I have been on every diet, worked out at 5 in the morning with a trainer, and always felt like there was something wrong with me. If only I had more willpower, found that one diet that would work and make my life perfect. In high school it was really tough, I was always the bigger girl. I spent summers at my Dad’s and he’d always put me on diet, I’d start school 20 pounds lighter and get a lot of attention, but slowly the weight would creep back on by Christmas. I was in biology class one day and in the corner the popular guys were talking about girls, I heard one guy say “she used to be cute, but she’s gained too much weight”, and then they all turned and looked at me! I almost died! I have had a love/hate relationship with my body my whole life and I am so happy that finally we are seeing ALL body types represented. I loved the first season of Orange is the New Black, because it showed so many different body types. Thank you for sharing your story!

  4. Thank you for sharing yours and thank you for reading! Its def hard to be surrounded by people/society that feel like being bigger is ugly or some other negative connotation. I don’t think people truly understand how much it can break someones self esteem when they comment on our weight! I don’t believe anyone is 100 percent happy with their body and I think thats fine. I’m happy now that I am in a place where I am okay with my body and I hope everyone else with all these representations can also love theirs as well!
