hi um i no exactly how you feel.Everything you said is just like me execpt the homecoming and sweetheartsdance.i cry everynight to but not really out loud.i cry in my heart.because i cant do things other skinny girls can do.but look at it this way, skinny girls cant have the freedom of feeling like a women because they will still shop in the misses department for a while. they will still feel like little girls.but that was just something my mom told me to boost your confidence.if you really want to loose weight (like me) dont just wait for people to reply this message, do some of your own research go to the bulletin boards archives (the arrow at the top) and look at everyones ideas for loosong weight.then put them together and form your own diet like i did. you can also search other places too but this worked best for me.but if you ever need some one to talk to email me at twa@mailpuppy.com

Heres some knowledge to whoever wants it, Don't use the word Diet, think your making "life style changes" because you are, once your off your "diet" if you don't keep the exercise up and not eatting all the junk foods, or you'll most likely gain the weight you've lost back , and some times more. So every morning I wake up and say to myself; I'm gonna lose this weight; I'm gonna exercise and eat right; I deserve to be the weight I want,because I can do it , I know it; I'm gonna take control. I also found this really great tool called a pedometer, It calculates how far I walk, how many calories I burn, and how many steps I've taken , It also helps me think I can do It. I wish you guys the best of luck on your weight loss, I hope you can take these tip to help you. Reply if you have any questions.

You can't just wait for someone to tell you you have to lose weight - do it yourself. Next time you see the doctor ask his or her opinion and set up an exercise plan and diet. Or you can talk to your parents or guidance counselor. Just remember that you can do it! :)

You should try to find a buddy or partner. This way if you need support they will be there. I've found that out just a while ago. If you have a buddy it will really help and plus you will have a new friend. Try to find one that's going through the same thing you are this way you can relate to each other.
