well- i was just comparing it to my school where one of the most obese people is also the most popular and the most looked down upon is an anorexic scumbag. i guess my school(though i doubt it's too much different- but then again i've never been outside of the vermont school district) looks more at personalities. i was just trying to help- it wasn't meant to make you feel bad. the only reason i said it was because when i didn't have a lot of friends a while ago i saw that it wasn't what i looked like but how i reacted to the first people who had picked on me. now i am a lot more comfortable with myself because i've found what i don't like about myself(mentally- not physically) and have worked out a lot and almost all of the people a school that i know like me. but i guess you are in a different situation. sorry.

When I was at school I didnt have many friends and that WAS in a way to do with my weight. If u are quite fat some people dont spend time getting to know you and that sucks - but to be honest u dont want mates like that. Also I lacked confidence because of my weight and that didn't help either. Luckily I had my best friend - who I made friends with on my first day of secondry school, and we are still close now even though I left the school nearly 3 years ago.
This year I am at 6th form college and I gotta say how better things are, because I am with the same 17 people then we really get to know each other and no one cares how fat I am - im just me! I know me telling you this doesn't really help - but just to let u no, i was where u were, I spent so many nights crying myself to sleep... Being thinner wont make u popular - people just need to realize that fat people are people to and just cuz were bigger doesnt mean theres anything wrong with us!! - and honestly it gets better!

just to look at this realistically- is it just your weight that's causing you to have no friends or is it reactions to things or the fact that you don't put yourself out to have friends?

well i have friends but not the one's i talk to everyday all day long, you know what i mean? i spend my lunch in the library doing homework but that's fine with me cause i don't have to do it at home. plus if they don't like your for who you are your better off without them. good luck with you diet!
