If you don&#39;t like the weight, get rid of it, for yourself. If it doesn&#39;t matter, don&#39;t let anyone else bring you down because of your body&#39;s status. You should be able to be who you want to be. Living for others is fruitless in my book, and in the end, just makes you miserable.Kylehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13369076904327452139noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-58356024972097377092010-01-09T06:33:38.735-07:002010-01-09T06:33:38.735-07:00It is all Oprah&#39;s fault.
