Tbh, if I was only as fat as you, I would not care at all. When I was your height, I was 155 lbs.

Accidentally clicked the post button, I'll continue here...
So, I was of a pretty healthy weight until I reached the sixth grade. I was depressed for a stretch and utilized emotional eating to distract myself. Afterwards, I would put myself through periods of not eating at all to try and counter the weight gain. I stopped gaining weight at the middle of seventh grade, and I've managed to keep my weight stable, for the most part.
I'm about to finish the eighth grade this year, and I've been accepted to the local early college program. I'm a bit nervous to attend, mainly because a hormonal deficiency (as I like to call it) I've been born with means that I will never grow past 5'3"ish, have a normal puberty, or obtain normal levels of testosterone. Right now, I've mostly come to accept my situation, but there are moments where I still have issues coping.
Around last year, I've started to experience issues with clothing. What I mean by that is that I went up 5 pant sizes and 2 shirt sizes in a single year. When I run, I don't lope. I've gained 5 minutes on the mile run. I've become quite uncomfortable with my physicality.
My goal right now is to lose 1.5 pounds a week, and reach 90 pounds by August 5th. That involves eating only when I start to feel hunger, rather than every four-ish hours, and going running with my mother a couple of times a week. I will also be posting each Monday night, to hold myself accountable.
