Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It is not an option. The first thing you have to do is accept yourself. If you don't, nobody else will. Love who you are now, and that will help you change yourself into what you want to be. You can accomplish your goals. As for your family, they need help. They should love you for you no matter what. If they can't change their ways, find others who will support you. I hope you will find your way. Remember that all of us here are always going to be supportive of you. We will never give up on you.

Whatever you do, DON'T KILL YOURSELF and cheer up! Summer will be here before you know it, this will give you a great oppertunity to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors by going for walks, jogs, bike rides and even playing a favourite sport. That's what I do in the summer and I always enjoy it. Remember that you should eat lots of healthy foods (Preferably fruits, vegetables, milk products and lean meats) and stay away from fried foods and foods with lots of calories and high fat. And, if your parents make rude comments to you, then you should say "You know, being my parents and all, you guys should be a little more supportive and actually want to help me lose weight instead of putting me down and making me feel bad because it is going to make things worse, not better for me" And, maybe you should tell them that you do not appriciate when they make remarks about you or just ignore them. Remember, losing weight does take time, but if you put your mind to it, then you can achieve anything and you will be satisfied with your results in the end! Good Luck!

Honestly, killing yourslef isnt the best bet! Try talkin with ur family and a friend or even a teacher! Im sure they would talk with you! Have u tried to exercise or nething? Go with that for awhile and c if you have ne results within a couple months! bye!
