My grandpa would tease me as a seven year old that if I stepped outside on a windy day the breeze would carry me away.

Then I got fat as a 12 year old then at 15 I joined the track team and lost a ton of fat then zoom to age 37 I am big again. Thank you APs…I’m a big sz now.

I was really chubby right up until like 6th grade when it all migrated north or south and I suddenly had a lot of boys asking me out and a lot of girls hating me.

I was gangly until I hit puberty, then pcos and depression hit me and I gained a lot of weight. No matter what I did I couldn’t get rid of it, and my weight kept yoyoing.

My BMI was 10% in high school

I was always spaghetti string thin until my early 30’s when I started on AP’s. Then, I slowly got obese until I got serious about losing the weight, which I did.

I was so thin as a child, that my abusive father’s nickname for me was Skinnyweenie.

i remember i was about 5 years old and i looked in the mirror and said im fat, then after that day i started doing situps, and had a 6 pack from about age 7 to age 32 haha, when i went on meds. now my weight is fine, i would like to add 10 to 13 pounds, i currently weigh 142 pounds down from 165 pound a couple years ago. i am 5’9".

Yea I was also quite young when I noticed that I was ‘fat’ although I was just normal. It was still in Germany so must have been about 5 years old too or max 7 years old
I think it was my legs I noticed in particular

yeah it was just normal baby weight for me, mostly i had a little buddha belly haha. i just remember looking in the mirror and thinking i was fat. it was easy to keep the weight off once i started playing sports a year later, and was always running.
