Hello,Don't let others get you down. Your okay. Try to be healthy, but not worry about your weight too much. I'm 5'4' & 147lbs. When I was younger I tried to be healthy & eveything & I was, but people insulted me. So, I gained. I weighed 176lbs. That was over a year ago. I've steadily watched what I ate & exercised to get back down to my original weight. I look good too, just as I used to when I was 13. Don't believe waifs who insult you or anyone else on here. They're either mean spirited or anorexic & want everyone to be so. I could starve myself, or take diet pills, but they will back fire later, so I don't. I instead eat right & exercise, both in healthy moderation. If you do starve or take diet pill you will ruin your metabolism & eventually become well over 200lbs. I know this not only from research, but also from family members. Don't try to be what your not.
