Reply from Jenna, Age 16 - 12/09/00 John, Hey! That was really mean of what your "supposed" friends did. I know ALL about the whole swimsuit thing. I used to be so big I had to wear the old lady swimsuits that were like BUTT ugly. It got to the pint where I just completely avoided anything that had to do with swimsuits at all. I would see all my friends in these cute tight clothes and i would dream about what it would be like to be able to wear those and get all the guys attention. I finally decided I had to do something. I gradually quit eating so much, and i quit eating snacks all together. I took up yoga (which builds muscle tone and u get FAST results) I've gone from 180lbs and wearing size 20 pants and XL-XXL shirts and no boyfriends to 125lbs wearing a size 9 pants and M-L shirts and have had 3 GREAT boyfriends so far this year. I know if I can do it so can u. U should also try to get your parents and friends to support u. Just know u have my support, keep me updated and if u ever need anyone to talk to just e-mail me at Friscos4@compu.net and type Jenna in the subject line. Good luck! :-) Love, Jenna :-)

I remember once when one of my friends had a pool party, and i had to borrow a bathing suit, I busted all of the elastic seams in it. It was very embarassing. I know that it is different for girls vs. boys and overweightness to when it comes to the dumb kids at school who try and make fun of you. I remember one time in my math class, the teacher was moving all the desks back in the front row, 'cause they were too close to the chalkboard, and when he came to my desk (i was still sitting in it) he couldnt move it. He said out loud "i wonder why this one wont budge". Then one of the kids said "Because Ann is in it". The whole class just started laughing. I was soo embarrased i just put my head down and started crying. Actually, i dont think that i told anyone that story besides my sister and you now. Since you said that you have tried everything, I think it is time to have your mom take you to the doctors because maybe you have a thyroid problem. One of my girlfriends had that and with some medication, she started losing weight, and has not put anymore on since. I wish you all the luck in the world, and have faith in you. P>S> update me on what happens!! :)
