Small Guy With a Big Heart
06/04/2013

I have been fighting with my own weight for years but on the flip side of the coin.

Many small people talk about being bigger while big people want to be smaller.

I've been trying since I was a teenager to get bigger and stronger. It has been VERY hard for me. I remember when I couldn't lift 5 pounds and the ones who were bigger than me would make fun of me, lock me up in school lockers, harass me and beat me up for years.

 

I eventually accepted myself for who I am, which many individuals do not.

I am 28 years old going on for 29 with a height of 5'8 and a small 119lbs body weight.

My father was 129lbs when he was 29 years old. He has also smoked for years (very bad habit which I discourage) and was not athletic.

I am the only one who is athletic in my own family and my four sisters are bigger than me (I am the middle child).

I attend school as a 3rd year nursing student (the first one in my family to be in university) and I have learned a lot about the disease processes associated with weight loss and weight gain.

Body image is HUGE for everyone which is why I joined this site.

This site doesn't have pictures of smaller guys in the 25 and up group (especially of 119lb bodyweight) so I decided to submit because sometimes I feel alone.

I've eaten like crazy, taken all the suppliments you can list and my girlfriend always tells me that I eat enough for 4 people.

I get told that I look like a teenager and always am asked for identification at bars. It's difficult when you want to be treated your own age in certain situations.

I've tried for years to match up physically to my own age level. Being a bigger guy to me helps me fit into my age.

Only issue to me is that I am small and it is often overlooked. I was told I would grow as I got older and my metabolism would change (it didn't).

I learned the important thing in life is to be happy whether you are big or small and accept what you are given as long as you are healthy.

I look strong but you can see from the side view I am still a small guy.

I joined this site so that smaller guys can understand that some of them won't gain mass (like many advertisements say) and they should appreciate what they have and not be dissapointed.

I also want the bigger people to understand that it's equally difficult to become smaller.

That they should live happy lives, take care of themselves and be proud of who they are.

My Body Stories Suggestions
I have always been a slender guy. I was premature by 2 months. I was short as a young teenager. I have been my same size since a junior in high school. I try to gain weight to turn into muscle, without having to take body enhancements. Any suggestions?      
Intersex Story
What can you say my story of how I was born as an Intersex person and living my life is as unique as the next person?
