    You've got a fit body now but nobody believes you were fat as a kid. Even more delicious is that the opposite is true for the ones who teased you.

    I was fat from about age 6-18. You should see the look on some people's faces when I show them my high school year books. icon_biggrin.gif

    Edit: My family used to tease me as a kid for being fat...now they ask ME for diet and exercise advice. An amusing turn of events...

    I had the opposite problem; at 13, I was already 6ft2, but only 130 lbs.

    I was fat for over 20 years. Still not where I want to be, but soooo much closer.

    Ex fattie here Now I weight 163 and still looking to shed a few pounds. I lost over 200 pounds in 2 years and I can honestly say I still look in the mirror and still see a fat person some days. I think it's actually harder to change the way you view yourself than losing the weight

    Not fat as in obese, but I was always 30-50 lbs overweight. Still got teased, though.
    Now the "hot" kids from high school envy me, because they lost their hotness and I gained mine. icon_twisted.gif

    I was the opposite as well.

    I could eat the contents of my family's refrigerator and still not gain anything.
    ...I'm still kinda that way?

    I'm probably one of the few people I know that eats McDonald's 3-4x a week and is still in the best shape despite of it. But I do use the guilt to keep me going to the gym every day, so, it works itself out.

    I was a fat kid. Lots of people, particularly girls, made it VERY clear I was unattractive, undesirable, and unworthy of their attention. Girls throughout junior high and high school ONLY dated "fine guys." And I actually believed I would be that way for the rest of my life.

    In college, thanks to a free gym membership and an assigned diligent trainer, my physical appearance turned around, weight-loss was dramatic, and I have never looked back since! I'm proud of my living a healthy, muscle-lifting lifestyle for the past 22 years! It's flattering when people notice and I admire guys in my age range who dedicate themselves to looking good into their late 30s and 40s.

    As for many of those girls who only dated fine guys? Well, many of them now look like walruses and are miserably divorced. Hmmm, karma's a bitch!!

    Yep, was a chubby kid who had to buy husky jeans and pants until about 7th grade...I guess the hormones kicked in and I got quite thin...I hate to look at pics of me as a kid though, particularly those with me in a bathing suit or shorts and no shirt!!!

    Not exactly but I did have skinny fat to get rid off. That's what I get for being a big nerd.

    I never necessarily considered myself a fat child...until a kid cracked a fat joke about me in 7th grade. By 10th grade I was underweight and had developed an eating disorder. Huzzah!

    When I was 14, right before I started High School, I was 4 lbs from 200... I realized that was too much so I lost the weight.

    I always blamed being fat on my metabolism... which was a lie... hahaha I used to eat a gallon of ice cream in one day and I'd average 3-4 burgers and 2-3 large fries in McDonald's every time we'd go there for lunch after doing grocery shopping.

    I was never a fat kid. I weighed around 160 lbs at 6'0 until I got married. Then the weight gain started. Attempts to lose the weight were usually met with "you'll never see it through anyway" and similar comments by my wife, who went from being 120 lbs when we first met to going over 300 herself. I topped at 325 lbs and then I decided to show her that I could see it through, and I did. In the process she left me. By the time she moved out 2 monts after I changed my bad habits I had already lost 30 lbs, but she is still the whale she was before. Sweet justice...

    Yes! I was always the fattest (or second fattest) kind in my grade. In 6th grade when we had to run a mile, it took me 15 minutes.

    The beginning of my Freshman year of high school, I was 5'6", 196LBS, all fat. I decided that I needed to do something about it, so here I am now...

    I wasnt the fattest kid in my year at school, BUT because I was from a very middle class background, was intelligent and my mom was friends with some teachers my twin brother and I were bullied mercilessly. Aren't kds fun? We were known as Tweddle Dee and Tweedle even Dummer, Beepop and Rocksteady (from off the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles cartoon) or Hack & Slash (reboot cartoon).

    My family all tend toward being tall, broad and, poltiely "big boned".

    Ive got the broad, tendancy toward being "big boned" but not the tall. grrrrr!! But yeah bullying at school and not wanting to get like my folks p ushed me into sports and fitness.

    I was also a "husky boy" growing up. Growing up in a Midwestern farmhouse where you clean your plate at every meal made times rough. Of course, I've grown into my corn-fed genetics bit by bit ... icon_cool.gif
