From Natasha, Age 12
Ht. 5'0", Start: 9 st 6, Today: 9 st 6, Goal: 8 st 5 - I've been overweight/obese all my life really. Like when I was 4 I was 98th percentile!! Which I know is obese. But it all started happening so quickly.
When I look back at pictures of me as a small child I can start to find out when it all started to go wrong. I was always quite chubby but I asumed it was just baby fat. But as I got to the age of ten I weighed 7 stone 7, I started to realise that it wasn't baby fat but it was real fat! I was obese then but now is when it was a blur.
At age 11 I still weighed 7 stone 7. That was still an overweight weight. But I didn't think anything of it and carried on at a normal pace.
I am 12 now and it is august. In march I weighed 8stone 9 which is the normal weight for a 12 year old girl. But it didn't last long... As I weigh my self now the scales say 10 stone 6! I have put on 2 stone in the past 4 months!! I am at the top of the overweight section and nearly obese:'(
I wear size 14-16 women's clothing as no children's fit any more. I have to shop in plus size shops which is pretty depressing. This is my story...
