Today: 320 lb - HI. I am 15 and weigh 320 pounds. I know i am over weight but I don't know what to do. I feel like people are always talking about me even when I am around them. I am tired of feeling like I am different. Just because I am fat does not mean that I don't have feelings does it? Please I eat when I am sad, lonely, mad, and when ever I feel like it. I am a fat ugly pig pease someone help me.

Oh Matt..... Im soooooo sorry for your hurt feelings right now :( I dont know what it is..... Why do bigger kids have to be made fun of? I mean were all the same.. just biggger thats all. I mean were not meaner or anything. Were just the same as a normal person. And there was a special on the news called "Fat Stupid Men" THAT WAS SOOOOO WRONG!!!! I KNOW TONS OF SMART OVERWEGHT PEOPLE!!! Especially MY DAD! HE OWNS A MEDICAL LAB!!!!!!!! AND HE IS OVERWEIGHT!! See there isnt much of a difference between normal weight people and overweight besides the risk of bad heart conditions.... but they say happier people that dont worry alot and arent stressed dont have as much of a risk so Matt... go out there and show the world what you can do! If they make fun of you so what... Just act like you dont hear them and also if you talk more.... they wont make fun of you! Thats the way it works for me and the kids at my school (the 2nd to largest in the state) Good luck to you Matt!
