    I do eat a lot and I have been overweight

    for a long time. I believe that I do have an overeating addiction.. but in this day and age, nobody cares about it. So it's just me and me alone who has to fix this.

    primary school. I grew up going to a small Christian school where everyone was nice and accepting of each other so I never thought my weight was a big deal and that people didn't noticed. When I started grade 8 I went to a large high school with over 1500 people so that was a...

    I'm overweight because

    not only do I love food, but for some reason I love the fat that I gain on my body. I love feeling how soft my fat is, as well feeling how much i can pinch, squeeze, squish, and make it jiggle. Fat is the best thing ever!

    At 15, I'm overweight.

    I've been overweight from a very young age. Generally, it's something that people figure you "chose", and I didd I suppose. But when you're a little kid with parents that couldn't care less, you don't realize what health effects unhealthy eating is going to lead to in the future...

    Honestly, being skinny is so overrated. You can’t enjoy the good things in life as much cause you’re too worried about what you put in your mouth and constantly reminding yourself “I have to go to the gym, I have to go to the gym..” How is that any fun? Plus, don’t men...

    I have always been overweight.

    My Mom would make cake and cookies and just urge me to eat continually. I guess she figured we didn't have an abundance of much else besides food so she would spoil me with that. idk what she figured, but she has apologized. I got it all from her, but its been a long time...
