    I've had a hard time with my weight recently.

    I've never looked in the mirror and thought I looked thin. But recently my dad has been telling me to get fit and calling me 'a big fatty.' My BMI is 'underweight' but I don't see it. My family are all kinda big but put pressure on me to be skinny, I don't get it? Haha, oh well...

    Every reflection reflects them,

    my curves and the imperfections of my reflection. I'm 14 and I yet I've already been through so much. But I'm not beautiful. I'm fat and I need to change. Because that's how I see it. Penetrations.

    Every American's Problem

    Where do I start? the media. the fashion. the schools and programs. the trends. the books. the slang. the supermarkets. the economy. the cars. the elevators. the escalators. the instant meals. Everything plays a part in why I feel fat. Will this ever end?

    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...
