From Ellen, Age 14

Ht. 5'6", Start: 175 lb, Today: 175 lb, Goal: 125 lb - Today I went to the doctor for a check up, and he told me that I've become obese. He made me take off my shirt and he looked at my belly, he told me that I'm close to developing diabetes and other issues. I've been fat for as long as I can remember. I love food, all I think about is food, I'm usually always eating. In the last 5 months or so, I've gained around 40 pounds. I've noticed that doing nothing simple tasks is becoming hard. Like walking up the stairs, running, or even walking for long periods of time makes me out of breath and tired. My belly had grown in size the most, but so has my arms and legs. My arms are extremely flabby and have lots of stretch marks, my belly hangs over my pants and has many rolls and stretch marks, and my legs rub together. I don't know what to do, my mom said that if I hit 200 pounds, she sending me to fat camp. I really don't want to go to fat camp because I think I'll be made fun of. Does anyone have advice?
