how do you say 'when i was younger i used to be fat'
thanks, this is for my oral questions! it would be good if you could tell me, thanks!
In this case I would say "cuando era joven, yo era gordo (a)". The verb "soler" I think does not apply here, because if you say "cuando era joven, yo solía ser gordo(a)", you will be saying that some times you were fat, and some times you were not.
That's the reason because I was asking for context in your previous post.
It would be: Cuando era niña, yo era gorda. ¡Espero que sea grand ayuda!
Zoey as you are only about 14 years old you can hardly look back on your life and say when you were young so perhaps you could say: De pequeña era gordo y ahora soy delgado, when I was a little girl I was fat and now I am slim. For your information in spanish you are now un adolescente and your next stage will be un joven.
