I see changes happening over the years. Bones grow and then the rest of my body catches up.  I turn from a child to a tween.  I think I know it all but I don’t.  I am 5’7″ in the 6th grade and barely 100 pounds.  I love it.  I love growing up.  I love the sense of freedom and independence I receive.  I transitioned from a child to a teen.  I grew breasts and found that boys noticed more than they should. I reveled in my innocence until the day I turned 18.  I haven’t always loved my body.  My body hasn’t always loved me.  I have been 100 pounds and I have been 300 pounds.  The trick I have found is loving myself, as I am, right now. When I am happy, I look great, I feel great and I am healthy. So the trick is to be happy and make your life what you want it to be. I love being me.
