Ht. 5'3", Start: 152 lb, Today: 353 lb, Goal: 150 lb - I don't know how I let this happen to me. I didn't really realize how big I've gotten until I went to the doctor the other day. they made me put on the kind of papery gown, and I barely fit in it. My Mom was there when I was changing in to it- she has not seen me without full clothing for years- and it almost made me cry to see her face. I tried to hide all the rolls in my stomach and all the stretch marks because I've put on this weight since I started middle school- so basically in the last three years. My Mom was disgusted. The doctor told me I was hugely overweight, and that I need to do something about it. When we got home, my Mom made me jog around this loop in our neighborhood. It is only about 1/6 of a mile, and I could not do it. I was wearing a tightish shirt, and it kept riding way up, and my stomach kept falling out. My stomach is huge, and it was really embarrassing. When I got back, i was breathing so hard and my stomach was hanging out, even though I'd walked part of the way. My mom said it was disgusting, and to look at how huge I am. I almost cried. later when my Mom went to work, I couldn't help myself, and I ate a ton of chicken nuggets and a burger and fries. and 3 pieces of chocolate cake and a coke. I couldn't help myself! I hate being this huge, I cram myself everyday into clothes that are too small cuz my Mom wont buy me bigger ones, its so embarrassing. Sometimes my jeans rip and almost none of my shirts can contain my whole stomach, so people have to look at my huge stomach, and i hate it! Help me!
