My Body Has Betrayed Me

My entire life has been a struggle for many reasons, one being my body. I've always been bigger with a more solid build. No matter what I do, getting under 180 lbs in adulthood is not possible. I've accepted it.

So now, at 23, I have spider veins. I just noticed this today. Its on my leg right over my muscle. I just want to cry what's the point in working so hard to lose weight if I can't even wear shorts or look good naked?! Its so ugly.

Try elevating your legs at a 90 degree angle for 20 min every day.... Cured my varicose veins after two days, maybe it can help you too!

I had to get sclerotherapy for that. I know how you feel! Oh and that's not just spider veins on your leg it's also a varicose vein. Sorry:(
