Ht. 5'5", Start: 181 lb, Today: 191.6 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - Gained another pound, I kinda could tell I had gained weight. I felt heavier (even though 1 pound may not seem like a lot it is for me). It just seems like every time I try to loose weight my belly enlarges more and more! I all goes to my belly and inner thighs, and my arms to! My arms have gotten bigger, it's embarrassing to lift them up bc they're so fatty and saggy. And my belly had gotten MORE stretch marks, Ughhhh I hate it so much! My jeans are getting smaller and smaller (size 18). I hate being this big so so much! It's awful to have you're best friend ask you about your health. The other day she asked me if I'd gained weight, out of concern. And I told her I had. She had a serious conversation about my health and my obesity. And I'm still in gym class and having to change in front of the skinny, healthy girls. They make fun of me and jiggle my belly and poke my belly button bc it goes in really deep. I can't help it, I'm in love with food! I eat when I'm bored, stressed, calm, and hungry of couse. I eat the equivalent of 8 meals a day and I can not stop myself! I know it's bad for my health and I know I'm only going to get bigger, but I love food to much to diet. Well that's it for now, bye!

isn't having a big belly so annoying! I have all of the same problems as you, deep belly button, being in love with food, having all my weight go to belly, inner, thighs and arms and I also have double chin
being fat is so hard isn't it.

I am same as you. I hate my stomach it so huge and just is wobbles and exercising is really really hard because it is heavy. I'd like to tell you, just hang in there, just ignore those bullies if they make fun of you. I used to hate gym class we have to tuck in our shirts over my big belly, but then one day they stopped making fun of me in class.

I haven't given up yet but I just feel like the more I try the fatter I get! It's just so frustrating! I'm constantly bullied for my size by my friends, people at school, and my family! I have no support, my mom measures me daily and weighs me as well to see my progress. The only progress in making is getting larger! She cries and tells me I'm fat and I'm going to kill myself from all the food I eat! I agree with her, I'm having a harder time breathing and exercising at this point because of the size of my belly. It's so annoying to try and do a crunch just knowing your fat belly will be in the way! I had a check up today, at my weight loss Doctor. It was horrible yet again! She made me take off all my clothes, she poked me, jiggled me, and rubbed me. And then she weighed me and measured me. She told me I'm on the fast track to heart problems and that I need to get my health back to normal fast! She told me that all my weight is going to my lower stomach, and that's why it's just getting lower and lower past my pants. She made me exercise in front of her. Ya know touch your toes, jumping jacks etc. she said my body should not jiggle as much as it does. Then she checked my breathing and no suprise there are problems! I just hate myself and my body for being as big as I am! I just need someone to talk to besides my jugmental parents, Doctor, and friends. All they see me as is a obese teen! HELP
