For the last 10 years my parents have been telling me that I'm as ugly as trash and I used to agree with them. Today I looked at myself in the mirror and I realized that I am actually very pretty. The scale says I'm obese but my body does not look obese in my clothes - I look like your average girl because my body is all muscle which weights more than fat.
Maybe some of both? Sometimes as we grow older the realization starts to sink in that our worth as a msnnor woman revolves around so much more than that number on the scale; no matter what the number is. Cut your parents out of your life! No one deserves that kind of negativity.
I think you just changed your perspective and realized that your parents were just cruel and you didn't deserve to be treated like that. The scale is usually inaccurate, I don't trust them because I know when I look good and I can see change.
