Autumn Madrano, Beauty And Appearance Blogger: Being Fat 'Was The Overriding Factor In My Life'

Beauty and appearance blogger Autumn Madrano appeared on HuffPost Live Wednesday to discuss her years as an obese child and teenager.

"Finding clothes was always hard, playing track and field was always hard," Madrano told host Nancy Redd. "The cause of my being overweight was my over-eating and my not exercising."

Madrano credited a change in diet with her weight loss.

"If I had had healthier eating habits, I would have been at a size that was appropriate for my frame as I am now as an adult," she said.
