I saw this this morning when a friend posted it. I almost started to chuckle, but then I stopped myself.
I CAN remember the first time I thought that I was fat.
I was in 1st grade.
1st grade people.
I was late to school because I didn’t want to go to school. I was upset and told my parents that I looked fat in my outfit. I can still remember what I was wearing. Green pants and a green turtleneck. I thought that my stomach looked huge. My parents were so worried that they called the school counselor and told her what happened. I was called into her office. I was so mad at my parents because I felt that they were making a bigger deal out of it than it needed to be. The counselor was a nice lady, and I remember her asking me why I thought that I was fat.
I have no idea what I said to her.
