If you think your life sucks, I bet you all I have that mine is a lot, lot worse. I have been fat since I can remember, and currently weigh 324 lbs. I have a set of scales in my room but most of the time I'm too ashamed to even stand on them. I don't even have a pretty face. Whenever my mom drags me off to the shops I usually end up in tears surrounded by gorgous slim girls. The other day I was in a store and I saw a blue summer dress I really liked. I got the biggest size and tried it on, but when I tried to get it off the zip got stuck. The asisstant had to come and try and get it off, but she had to come and get her friend to help her because it was stuck fast. I ended up running out of the shop in tears. Its even worse at school. They've managed to think up every mean name accosiated woth being fat that there is. My mom is overweight too and says I'm being stupid when I try to diet, and fills the house with junk food which I can't resist. You guys mean so much to me and any suggestions you come up with will really help. Thankyou!!

Reply from Shamik, Age 16 - 07/11/01 Karmel -Ann don't feel so bad about yourself let me tell you something I don't care how much you think you need to lose weight if you just sit around and but yourself down and cry all the time your not going to get anywhere. Just belive in yourself and take it day by day. I'm overwieght too and I felt the same way you did and sometimes I still do but all I do is just take my time and think about thing what I say to myself. If you want to lose weight, you have to do it for yourself not for anyone else. But this is what you should always remember that every sec. every day the world moves on it goning to move no matter if your overweight or thin and if God say so your life lives goes on. While you siting around puting yourself down you can lift yourself up and set goals for yourself day by day. What I'm trying to say is no one is going to lose the weight for you - you have to lose it for yourself and remember it takes time. OK
Reply from Michelle, Age 13 - 05/04/01 Hey. I'm over weight too, but I think your situation is much worse. I do have some advice that might work though. Think of your goals and dreams. I want to become a singer, but the entertainment world is all about looks and not as much as talent. When I think of eating fatty foods I think of my goals and where I wanna be. It might sound confusing. I'd really like to b friends, we can help eachother. Email me @ MichBot1@aol.com.
Reply from Kristen, Age 14 - 04/30/01 I'm 14, 5'8" and I weight 141 lbs! I feel really fat. My legs are muscle but my stomach is just flab. Everyone thinks I'm so skinny and I'm not!! My stomach is just flab!! I don't like it and I try to loose it and nothing seems to work! Will you please help me!
Reply from Misty, Age 13 - 04/22/01 Hey one way to lose some weight is to drink plenty of water and not drink any soda drinks.Another thing is not to eat the junk food that your mom buys. Have you told her that you don't want any junk food? Tell your mom that you aren't happy w yourself and you want to change. When people say mean things to you just always remember there is at least one thing they dont like about there self too. and the thing you don't like about yourself is your weight. Try everything you can but make sure you don't starve yourself or anything like that. well if you ever wanna talk just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Hope to hear from you.
