THE DIRTY ARMY: Hi Nik, just wanted to say thank you for helping me to turn my life around. I went to college where I quickly took to partying and gained a ton of weight like most girls do. For the longest time I denied it, thought I was still hot, and still wore my non-fitting clothes. Because I had become fat and insecure, I was acting like a sloot to compensate for my appearance. I would get blackout drunk many times a week and act like a total frat rat out at parties with sleazy guys who didn’t give two sh*ts about me. Many of my peers did not respect me, but, more importantly, I was not respecting myself.  I found your site, and was both fascinated and disgusted by how you were criticizing people; your honesty is completely brutal and at first I thought you were nothing but cruel.  Eventually I realized that you were just being truthful rather than saying what people wanted to hear; while it may be unfortunate, the world is a shallow place. I knew I would end up on your site if I didn’t change how I was letting the years pass by. Luckily it wasn’t too late for me. I started to lose all the weight, and am now smaller than I ever was in high school. I look and feel great, and stopped acting out and being a bottle rat. I became a leader on campus, am set to graduate early, and have a boyfriend who cares about me and is proud of me. My family is no longer disappointed and loves to talk about my accomplishments. Thank you for giving me a second chance and allowing me to make the most of my life. It’s a shame that your site gets more bad press than good. People who get posted should take it as a chance to change how they are living their lives, rather than trash you for making them aware of their actions. Thanks again! PS: Congrats on your beautiful baby girl.

Nobody likes reality checks… that is why 2% of the world hates me.- nik
