Looks can be deceiving

Yep, everyone looks at me and think I look fine. And you know what, apart from quite a few extra kilos floating around my middle, and thighs and bust (the latter of which I don’t really mind too much because growing up I never really had any cleavage), I really do look fine. Unfortunately that…

Living on the edge
