Thank you! (What It's Like To Be Fat--For Me)

Wow! I am absolutely speechless at the response that my previous post about my weight issues has gotten! It has over 2,300 views, which is absolutely insane! I don't think I even know that many people.... To every single person who liked, commented, shared, sent me a private message, texted, and called: thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I want to sincerely say thank you. Before that post, I literally NEVER talked about my weight to anyone apart from my mom and sister (and even that was a rare occurrence). But now that I've been open about it, my whole perspective has changed. I wasn't aware how much love and support was waiting for me if I just opened the door.  I knew that I had amazing friends, but I had no idea how much you truly loved me and were seeing me for me all along :)
The fact that someone could resonate with even a little part of my post means the world to me. I thought I was so alone in my thoughts and feelings, I had no idea so many people experienced the exact same emotions that I felt. And to those who have faced similar issues, I encourage you to share your story. This has been such a liberating experience for me and I hope you can experience the same type of love and acceptance that I felt. That being said, if you know me, you know that I have a lot more to say, so be sure to my follow my blog in order to see more posts about anything and everything.
PS: And to anyone who struggles with PCOS, weight issues, or being in the spotlight, always feel free to message me! We're all in this together *cue High School Musical jump*

XOXO,
ERICA
