This is a new Netflix Original I heard about from one of my trainer friends who said “Do not watch!!” because it’s about a girl whose jaw gets wired shut, loses 70lbs, and now is suddenly pretty and popular.

It made me feel like he wasn’t supporting my effort in being healthy.
But I kept at it. And now he’s adjusted.
