It's no secret that I'm not thin. I've never really been fat either, although "thick" is a word that has been used to describe me. For most of my adult life, I have been on the bigger end of the "normal" BMI scale, something that has always haunted me. And for most of my adult life, I have wanted to lose 30lbs.
I grew up in a house and wider culture that valued and values thinness. I always knew, and was often told, that I wasn't heavy, but that I could be thinner. You know, if I wanted to.
