Some People Are Quick To Assume..

Out of everyone in my family, I am the only one who is obese. So some people are quick to assume that obesity is a result of neglectful parents.


My parents were both athletic and fit. I don't know how it all started, but in my early childhood, I began gaining weight.

I remember my mother trying hard to keep me slim, but I kept gaining weight. Later on as a teenager, a doctor sent me to an endocrinologist. The endocrinologist diagnosed me with hypothyroidism.

I was then prescribed medication for my thyroid, and I have lost so much weight ever since.
