    for my weight. I'm 104.2 lbs and about 5'2 in height. I'm 14 years old and this isn't an acceptable weight. I have these dreadful cheeks filled with fat and a slowly forming double chin. The fat hangs over my pants and I have obtained rolls. All I do is sit around in bed on my...

    I Lack Motivation

    You would think the motivation of feeling active and alive again would be enough, but stress overcomes all! Yes, I am certainly an emotional eater. Now, I know some people who think I'm an imposter because I'm 5'5 and 155 pounds. They say that I'm not that bad. And I'm not. I...

    I don't understand why I'm overweight.

    I eat normally, I exercise normally. It's hard not to get depressed when all my friends are gorgeous and skinny.

    I've been fat since childhood.

    It wasn't so much that I ate a lot. It was more that I had a lower metabolism than most kids my age. The older I got, the more I was bullied, until I started eating to make myself feel better, but it only made me bigger, which caused more bullying, and I continued to eat to feel...
