Not sure what to title this

I have been waiting for the perfect moment to finally get back into the blogging world, and today I came across an amazing video that has inspired me to do so. A video that hit close to home and so I want to share it.

please note this is not my video nor do I take credit for it nor do I or want to infringe on any copyright I got this video from youtube. 

Livingston said, "Yes, the truth is, I am overweight. You could call me fat and, yes, even obese on a doctor's chart. But to the person who wrote me that letter, do you think I don't know that?" 

All I have to say in response to that is I have said pretty close to those exact words. Sometiems I feel like people don't think I know that I'm fat. Truth is: I do and I am really self conscious about it and unfortunately there have been times when it has affected my self esteem. 

Now after that I do want to say a few more things: 
1. Thank you to my amazing friends who haven't judged me because I'm fat. Thank you for taking the time to get to know who I really am, because I really am more than the overweight girl you see looking back at you.
2. There are so many good people in this world who want to do good.  (more on this in an upcoming blog post)
3. If you have ever struggled with self esteem and self image, let me tell you how amazing you are. And if you're reading this YES I am talking to you.  You are such an incredible person and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. 
4. If you have ever made fun of someone for the way they look... STOP.
