I’m Katie! I’m seventeen. I’ve been a little bit bigger my whole life, and after all this pushing to be stick thin with pressure mainly from myself, the media and even my parents, I’ve realized that maybe I’m just supposed to be this size. I was severely depressed from ages 12 to 15, and after a hard break up I became more mature and started taking the proper medications. I’m a very happy person now. I’m also very healthy; I exercise and eat well. At age fourteen, I had little to no appetite and refused to eat. I lost a lot of weight and felt awful. Starting medications made me put on weight, and I’m starting to be fine with that. This blog makes me feel more confident. Ladies, your stories are incredible and you are all so beautiful.
