~ MY STORY 12 YEARS ~
Hi. I'm 12 years old and just found out that I'm 201 pounds last night. I'm almost 5'5. Just in the summer I was 180. I don't understand how this happened. I am so upset I just don't get it. Anyways, my parents are trying to force me into a diet that I don't want to go on. I want more than anything to lose this weight, but when I want to. I want to be confident again for the first time since 5th grade. I'm in seventh now, but I forgot how it felt to be care free and I haven't gone one day with my head up high since then. All I want is to finally be happy again. This website is the only place that I feel like people understand me when my parents obviously don't. And don't even get me started with my friends. I wouldn't ever think for a second about telling them how I feel. For me, doing that would be like listening to someone scrape a chalkboard.
