Here are some pictures of me at different weights throughout the years. I met my husband in 2002, at age 18 weighing about 135 lbs. I thought this would be a good reference for yall as far as what I look like at different weights.
I didn't gain my weight overnight, it crept up on me slowly over the years...
*These are weight guesstimates since I didn't own a scale back then*
