Well, yes, I guess. I grew up being the "fat" sister of the family. Was I actually fat? Well...pudgy, I guess. Somewhat overweight for my age. At some point in my childhood, I shot up and slimmed down. However, those voices were still with me and I still heard negative comments from my family. I never knew how slim I was until I saw myself in photos years later. I was *gorgeous*. The weight was put right back on, having never known it was off in the first place.
Now in my early 30's, I have better habits and better self-esteem. I eat right. I exercise several times a week. I take time to de-stress. I now hover at just the border of healthy weight and overweight. Another pound and I'll be solidly in the healthy range, finally.
Wait, what was the question? Ah, yes. Self conscious. Yes, especially about my belly, but not as much as I used to be. I now even wear a 2-piece bathing suit and attend Zumba often.
