I was never a skinny person and I've always been overweight. Kids were constantly picking on me and calling me names. All of this was traumatizing, but one school's sports event took the whole teasing thing to another level.
Every year, my school has a compulsory swimming competition. You see, I actually WAS a pretty good swimmer and I even joined the swim team in elementary school. I won gold for every event but when I was 10, I had to quit because I started to get serious health issues. The thing is, I've always had strong anxiety attacks so when I wanted to calm myself down, I started to use food as my comfort. That's why I started gaining weight rapidly. Since then, I've had severe self-esteem issues so I started hating those swimming competitions and especially wearing bathers. So, every year I would come up with an excuse for why I can't participate. Anyways, this year, a new teacher from the school's sports department forced me to participate. He basically just said, 'It will be fun,' and, 'You'll love it'. He didn't even try to listen to me. The teacher told me that if I don't participate, I will be suspended as I have attended none of the swimming competitions.
So, it was the day of the swimming competition. My mum gave me a pair of bathers that barely fit me. All my flab was fully exposed. I felt horrible and just wanted to cry. I was petrified of what everyone will think. Then I decided to put on an oversized shirt over the bathers so I would cover everything up. So, when I got to that swimming competition, the teacher called the people up for the 200-meter freestyle. Right before I stood on the platform before the race, he pulled my arm and told me to take my shirt off. I refused and he told me it was against the dress code. I still kept arguing with him but then he forcibly started taking my shirt off, in front of all the kids. I was obviously weaker than him so his aggressive attempt was successful. I was left standing there just with my tight bathers on, in front of everyone… It was humiliating. I was standing there weighing over 300lbs with my two-piece bathers barely covering my body. I was bawling my eyes out and all those people around me were just watching, pointing at me, laughing and calling me names. I was so embarrassed I wanted to drop into the water and drown. I ran to the nearest bathroom stall and threw up... I was crushed.
The next day at school, my crush came up to me while I was at my locker. I was still crying because of this terrifying event, but I quickly wiped the tears from my eyes when he came. Then he said to me: 'I heard you were a good swimmer and I feel really bad for what happened. You should see the principal and tell him everything.' That's exactly what I did. I told the principal about my self-esteem issues, teasing, how the teacher forced me to participate in the swimming carnival, and how he pulled my shirt off. The principal instantly made a few phone calls. Soon, I found out that the teacher lost his job and received a fine for sexual harassment.
I think that this terrible experience made me stronger. I understood that if I want to become this happy person I used to be, I need to change something about myself. I started going to the gym and rejoined the swimming team. It's been 6 months now and I have lost 100lbs. And I'm not planning to stop because now I am a much healthier, happier person than I ever was.
