About this submission

It's the story of my body. I lost weight during college and the comments I received were the most toxic part of my weight loss journey. Years later, I discovered that my body dysmorphia began during this period of time in my life. It's a common experience for women. Being in a female identifying body means you are subject to comments about your body all the time. When I started sharing the script with my friends, the most common response was "Yes." I knew it was a story I needed to tell for myself, but more importantly, for women.
