Hey ben. I used to be pretty thin until last summer when i gaine about 20 lbs cuz i was depressed and my girl friend broke up with me. I have love handels, and man boobs, and i am a little bit chubby under the bellie button. Don't worry about it, if you really think about it, alot of boys these days look like we do. There are 5 boys in my gym class, 4 of them are like us. No one cares as much anymore. It's because we don't exercise enough. I just eat food if it's there. I love eating. I love veggging out in fron of the tv. That's becoming a tipical American boy. Try not to be like that work out, play sports. If ur bad at sports, work out, eat veggies and fruits, do sit-ups.

well- your mom could just be ignoring it so that she doesn't make you even more sad- but get up and work out as much as you can and build up stamina and eat healthy and drink tons of water and when you lose weight she'll probably tell you that she never noticed how big you were untill you lost it all! just do the most that you can do untill you're able to do more- and i used to have that thigh thing too- it really sucked so i feel your pain- it really sucks in the winter- but i just worked hard(with a breackdown every now and again) and now they don't do that! good luck!
