My secret past as a fat personWhen I was about 15 or 16, I was fat. (5'11", 85kg. I'm now 65kg). I'm now fairly skinny, I think. I attribute a lot of my current insecurities to that, though; I'm unable to think of myself as attractive, and constantly worry about my weight, setting a much higher standard for myself than for anyone else. My passport photo dates from then. I used to be extremely awkward about people seeing it, but was convinced to show it to people recently, and can now see the funny side, mostly.

Not, mind you, that it really makes a difference, except I don't find it as hard to look in the mirror. No-one my age is attracted to me, though. Not entirely sure why. Suppose I must be ugly, and/or socially broken.
