OBESE GIRL’S BF MAKES FUN OF HER SIZE, SO SHE QUIETLY LOST 20KG AS REVENGE

I’ve been slowly and quietly losing weight and becoming more active without telling anyone. 20kg down.
I (27F) have been obese most of my life. I grew up with a single mom who didn’t have time to cook so my grandfather would bring over fast food and snacks and I packed on weight quickly, and developed binge eating disorder.

As I put on weight I resented the way I was treated for my size. I was called an embarrassment. The boys in my class would physically grab the fat on my body and jiggle it and laugh. If I wore “unflattering” clothes everyone laughed at me. I’ve been rejected many many times for my size.

But I resented the idea of trying to lose weight because I didn’t want to give them the satisfaction of harassing me into becoming an idea body type.

I did become confident in my size. And I honestly stopped hating how I looked. But, I didn’t like that when I flew, i often needed a seatbelt extender. I didn’t like squeezing myself as close to the window as possible to make sure I didn’t encroach in my seat-mate’s space (I fly a lot for work- 20-30x a year, so this was a big issue). I didn’t like not hanging out with my friends if they were doing physical activities because I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up and I’d embarrass myself.

So, I started quietly trying to lose weight. I started eating cleaner, making healthier substitutes. And in the beginning of this year, I started eating in a calorie deficit. By that alone, I lost 20kg.

Now that I lost that much weight, I am now physically feeling more capable of working out. Earlier this week I went kayaking. Today, I went for a really long walk, some of that through a hiking trail. And I felt great after both.

I was 157cm tall and 140kg at my highest. And now I’m 120kg. I’m still obese. I have a lot to go. But I’ve done this totally quietly and privately without telling anyone in my life. I didn’t do it for any one’s approval. But I did it for me, and I’m actually making great progress.

And I just wanted to share that because I still don’t want to talk about it with the people in my life (tho, they are noticing), but wanted to tell someone.
