    I feel fat... I'm being told I'm not .

    . But yeah whenever I eat I feel like I shouldn't like I should eat less.. I've never seen myself as "pretty" like other ppl call me in fact I see myself as ugly and I don't really know how to change that feeling .. How to feel better about myself.

    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?

    I put on so much weight in the last year,

    it's all I see when I look in the mirror. It's just all fat and I hate it and as hard as I try to get back in shape I just feel like I'm getting bigger.. I know it's all in my head, but I can't get away from it.

    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.

    If you're a woman who thinks it's ok to tell a

    skinny woman that she needs to eat a sandwich, I hope you don't mind when that skinny woman tells you that you're a fat ***. Because that's exactly the sort of shaming you're giving her.
