Hi! I will turn 12 in December. I'm really overweight, as I weight 286 pounds. I have no friends because I'm so fat and hope that someone on this board would like to talk to me. Everyone in my school is making fun of me and is me calling names.

Thank you all for your advices! I'm so happy about them. I will be in the chat area sometimes, just in case someone would like to talk to me there!

Hello Ellie! I also have a son who is 11 and is overweight and suffers just like you. I replied to Taylor's message if you would like to read that. I have posted some good advice. Please don't be hard on yourself. You ARE beautiful. The key to losing weight is a combination of things: positive thinking (for every negative thought find a positive one to replace it); exercise (20 minutes a day every day and work up to 30 minutes every day with some light weights) and healthy eating (6 small meals a day eating, fruits, nuts, low-fat cheese and yoghurt, wholemeal(grain) bread/crackers, low-fat meats like chicken, steak, tuna, eggs but only 3 per week). But remember POSITIVE THINKING. You can do it!
