When I gained weight two years ago, and was starting puberty, I had no interest or worries with my weight. then suddenly I realised I was large; my friends were thinner than me and as time went by I isolated myself from my frineds so they wouldnt see me eat. i lost confidence, and power to communicate with others. I became more moody and bad tempered. there were days when i would hate the world an myself. I felt alone and miserable. sometimes i would bing uncontrolably and other days i would starve myself. All this chaos has lead me to not only an instability towards but also emotional instability and insecurity with myself and family. I'm afraid. if you have any comforting words or advice please email to me at thank you.

o my god girl, ive felt -exactly- the same way, some days i binge, others nothig at all. Those highs and lows, the emotional and physical aspect of things, its hard. I took me awhile to get outa the funk i was in, but i new i had to get back in there, an get my self confidence back, new friends, and loving myself enough to wanna be healthier and lose the weight for myself. Keep it alive girl, im here for you.

if u really feel this way, get help, like a sacaratist or whatever. u don't have to, but it might help. u could ask your parents about it or look it up on the internet. that may help u better. u could just be depressed alot and he might give u a pill for it. u would feel better. or if u don't want to then go on a diet. eat more healthy instead of sweets. not so many snacks, and no starving your self. get out more and ignore if u r bigger then other girls. go one a fruit and veggie diet and u can look like the other girls, but till then, when u r out in public, ignore how big u r. only people with no hearts or brains will tease u. and people will get used to it. but during that time go on a diet too. good luck
