Dont give up on yourself. If you get a doctors note stating you can go to weight watchers they will teach you how to eat. I am 15 years old and lost 100lbs from weight watchers. Just dont let the peer pressure take over you. You dont have to tell anyone what you are doing to lose weight. It works. The results will make you so happy!

Hi Dan, I just read your email a bit late, but actually, I don't come on that website. I was doing a research about overweight kids for my English class when I found that site. I was really touch by your message and I didn't understand why no one replied to you. I think that it needs a lot of will from you to see the reality you face and you`re in the good way by starting to care about the food you eat. Well, eating well won't help you lose weight by itselft. You need to burn all these calories you're eating. I don't know which sport you like but you should play it at least 3 times a week and exercise 30 minutes everyday, even if it's only to take a walk outside. I can't really tell you that I know what you`re leaving because I am weighting the health weight. I am a bit conserned about overweight and obese problems because I learnt that it is dangerous.. and all stuffs. I think everyone who"s not happy with themselves should have help when it's possible. It's the reason why next year I will be studying in dietetics.Well, good luck ! And don't be afraid to ask help to specialist... :) Be happy ! Enjoy your life !!!
