    It would be an insult

    for me to say I feel fat to most of my friends, but something is wrong with my stomach :/ I noticed it two days ago. I look in the mirror, and it sticks out a bit more than before. I feel bloated, but I'm not having any irregularities, if you know what I mean. Perhaps it's water...

    Ok , I weigh 85 pounds

    and I'm 14 but when I look at other girls I feel like I'm not skinny enough , I don't feel as if I'm fat just that I will never be as close as what other people look like 😕

    It's funny because I'm on vacation

    and even though I've been trying to diet I haven't seen progress yet. It's probably because no matter how "hard" I try, I won't really lose weight unless my mother specifically puts me on a diet, I just feel like I have to follow it so I always do... The scale says I've lost a...

    I am 145 right now. I know I ate a big vegan

    burger today. And I barely ate yesterday, but I thought I'd be 144 (because that could only account for a pound, tops possibly). I am 5'7" and I have long legs. But my abdomen is small, therefore I feel fat.

    I used to weigh 150 pounds,

    but I lost over 30 pounds and I now weigh 117 pounds. My goal weight is 110. But, the thing is, I still feel the same way I felt before, and I'm not sure that 7 more pounds will make a difference. I never used to obsess over my weight, but I overheard my aunt telling my grandma...

    I feel fat. No one understands

    that when I see someone I analyze them I pick out how big their waists are or their stomach and it's sad and it's hard and I over exercise myself sometimes it hurts so much when I wake up the next morning I can't move and feel pain for days. I just want to cut all the fat away.

    Currently I'm 5'2" and 193 pounds. Hope I can get bigger quickly. My belly is starting to creep more and more onto my lap which is exciting. My stretch marks are finding more room to appear and my double chin is more prominent. My belly right now is 46 inches around at the navel...

    I hate eating at times.

    I love food and u love eating but sometimes I really don't like to. mainly at night eating fast food. but then again sometimes you have to eat cheap just to keep from going hungry and some don't fully understand that.
