Hi my name is Katie Washington. I am 16 years old and have a problem with managing my weight. I currently weight 163 lbs. To me, I feel as though I am huge. I become angry when I realize that I can't wear the same outfits as my normal size friends. I am the biggest out of all of them. I never go swimming because I don't like the way I look in a bathing suit. Every since I was little I have always been teased. This has really effected my self esteem about myself. Whenever I go out, I feel as though everyone is looking and talking bad about me. It is hard to make friends because I dont feel as though I am pretty enough. My mom always tease me and call me fat. It really hurts because no one understands what I have gone through. All my life I just wished that I could be small like the rest of my friends and have a nice body. About 2 years ago, I lost the weight, but found myself to gain it back. I used to starve myself and excercised a lot. In the end, I ended up in the hospital and 2 years later back to where I started. Now my goal is to weigh 140 lbs. I understand that this will not be easy but hope that I will be able to achieve my goal.
