Goodbye fat girl ... I'm crawling out of you
To get out into the world ... to see the light
Oh my! My eyes open wide to see such a sight!
Excited, I climb through the fat, blubber
Gently parting it back on either side of me
Smile as I look around at the world I see!
It's been a long time fat girl
Since I've been out in the world
Let me out so, I can dance ... twirl!
I've been in comforting darkness
Hiding out so ... no one could see
The sad person who is ... me
I step out slowly ready to turn back
To be a fat girl once again if need be
The world pulls me out ... to the slender me!
Leaving my fat girl behind
Leave my fat girl front, side
Let my slender girl into this world ... glide!
Goodbye fat girl, it's time for you to go
I can let go of you now ... you let go of me
It's okay ... it's me now ... not we!
Thank you for hiding me in my weakness
I'm strong now ... ready to go out in the world
Once again ... give it another twirl!

I have working on myself for the past 2 months ... I see I'm going to make it. I won't say anything more, the poem speaks for itself ... soon, photos will. All I can say is: Thank you Fat Girl for protecting me until I was strong enough to come back to this world once again. Everything is going to be all right.
