Hi, my name is Shannon and I am an obese 14 year old. I have tried everything to try and lose weight, but I can't. I weigh 13st and my BMI is >40. I can't help myself from eating, I just crave food all the time. My friends all have size 8 bodies, and I have a size 18 body. I have tried stuff like adios and slimming tablets, I have tried to starve myself, I am seriously considering surgery, but I know my mum won't allow it. My parents and family constantly call me fat and I have been bullied on numerous occasions. I cry myself to sleep most nights, but I know it's my fault. People tell me to just stop eating, but it isn't as easy as that. I need help, but dont know where to look, please help me, I need to lose weight!
