Growing up fat

Confessions of a Former Fat Kid– Isaac Fitzgerald, BuzzFeed

Hell of a read.

Fitzgerald and I have led very different lives. Being former fat kids is nearly all we have in common.

Ironically, when I look at pictures of myself as a child and teen-ager, I don’t look fat. I didn’t get fat until I was an adult. I was terrible at sports, always picked last in gym class, and yet I and my friends rode our bikes everywhere, miles every day. It was the only way to get around.
