I am the biggest person that I know and I feel like any time the word obese is mentioned, I am the first person everyone thinks of. I constantly try to size myself up compared to everyone else. Ugg.

I feel your pain, I work at a pharmaceutical company, there is only one person bigger than me on campus and I'm the biggest person in my department, everyone is so fit, trim and obviously worked out. I do try to stay positive about it and tell myself that even people who seem totally fit have their own struggles with body image or life in general and that they aren't paying attention to my bigger-than-everyone-else-ness. Even though I'm not happy with my weight it helps me to take a deep breath and tell myself "I am who I am, I have to at least *try* to accept myself"
