Some background story here…
I was always overweight as a child. I was a size 14 when I was in 3rd grade. That carried on throughout my teen years as well. I only started to lose weight when I was 20 years old. I finally decided I had enough. On my 20th birthday, I was a size 9/10. On my 21st birthday, I had dropped down to a 3/4. Since then, my weight has been fairly consistent. I’ve been a 3/4 since 2005.
I had a really bad breakup in 2009 and I dropped down to a zero. I’m 5’5″ and for my height, that is not healthy. Later on that year, I started dating my current S.O. and things turned around.
Long story short, I’ve moved in with him since then and I know I’ve gained some weight. I was at the Dr’s the other day and measured 135 lbs. I know it’s crazy to be upset over that, but I haven’t weighed that in years. I have to buy new clothes cause I’m starting to not be able to fit in the old ones. I’m still going to the gym a ton too. My bf still thinks I’m sexy and beautiful, but it really bothers me.
Am I being too hard on myself?
