“I’ve lived here [Charlottesville] for most of my life. My life struggle is weight loss. Seeing that most of my family is big makes it harder to lose weight. Everyone on my dad’s side of the family is big, and everyone on my mom’s side of the family is small. When we take family photos, she’s the smallest in the picture. It gets me down in the dumps because I can’t lose any weight. It’s a real struggle.”
