This is so hard. I'm just in this place where I just think " This is so unfair, why can all my friends and my sister be so effortlessly skinny and I have to be fat, and what's the point in this stupid diet I'm not losing weight and I should just give up" and then I think no I can't give up I can't I don't want to be like this but it's so hard, and I gained a pound. I went swimming but I can't right now I'm on my period and swimming wasn't as great as I thought it would be. I don't know. I'm just a bit depressed I guess.

guess what i was told. girls, when they get their period ALWAYS gain a little weight but there is always 1 year when they gain THE MOST weight. just try to eat better foods and exorsize when you can. I have the same problem my sister is beautiful AND skinny like a rail and small and petite while ME, i am taller than her, brouder than her and uglier than her. She puts no effort into it and i feel gross and FAT. but don't worry. you and i are both different ppl from our sisters so our bodies work differently. i am sure that if you just have a little faith in yourdelf you will end up JUST FINE. and once you get into the habbit of being ona good , not really a diet but just having a better eating habbit, then you will ALSO be effortlessly skinney. and you know what i am not even taking my own advise. so thank you for helping me by letting me help you.

u can swim just use a tampon. if u get a thick one they last longer in the water. but thin ones only last about 30 mins. (my worst period was wen i was on a water sports holiday with my skool and we was at the beach all morning and then all afternoon. but i did lose a half a stone that week wit all the exercise :-))

Don't worry everyone has their ups and downs. Just think about the positive stuff that will come out of all your sacrifice. It's truly worth it if u think about it...
