Just Peachy

“It’s January and everywhere I turn (the supermarket, TV, papers, magazines, Instagram) I’m being told how to lose weight.

It’s like the whole world is on a diet, after the holidays…and all I’m worried about looking too skinny. It pisses me off.

Throughout high school I was bullied for having an eating disorder, when I never did. By Freshman year it got to me, and I started bingeing to put on weight. Fucked up right.

Anyways, I just think we should stop obsessing over our weight. Big, fat, short, tall, slim, skinny, curvy…I’m over it all.

So, yeah…whilst y’all trying to squeeze into a smaller size jean to make yourself feel better, I’m also doing it too…but to make my ass look peachier.”
