From Ellen, Age 15 - 11/27/15 - IP#: 70.193.71.xxx Click here to reply Ht. 5'6", Start: 191 lb, Today: 206 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - So yesterday was Thanksgiving and my mom wasn't with me. She and my step father went on a vacation, leaving me with my cousins. My cousins are twins, who are my age, and they're also overweight to. Taylor is 375, and Olivia is 341. They're obviously larger than me. My aunt is also overweight. So I'm staying with them for the next three weeks...four obese people in one house, I'm defently going to gain more weight. They eat more than I do, which is saying a lot! Five meals a day and two snacks In between. And the food is either fried or covered in sugar. It's awful I've been here one day and I've already put on one pound. My stomach hurts and I feel like I'm Going to explode! I told my aunt and se took me to her friends house, and her friend rubbed my belly (it's supposed to allow me to eat more). My aunt says that she wants to fatten me up...like I'm Not already fattened up. My cousins think I'm skinny! Skinny! I'm fat! I don't even want to imagine what my mom is going to say when she weighs me in three weeks! Does anyone have any advice? My aunt says she wants me to be as close as possible to 300! Omg help
