    Why Don't I Stop Myself?

    So, all of my life I have lived with the knowledge that I am fat. But, it wasn't always true. When I was thirteen I used to hang around with two girls that were as skinny as could be, one openly admits now that she has an eating disorder and has, since then gained weight. But...

    My Life

    For as long as I've known, I have been overweight. I wasn't necessarily bullied for being fat, but I definitely stood out from the other kids. I had lots of family issues growing up(being molested by my father and my step father, which is probably a huge reason I am overweight...

    Sick

    I hate being overweight. I get so paranoid thinking that everyone is secretly staring and mocking me. I want to be thin but my emotional eating is a vicious cycle- I feel so depressed for being fat so I eat to comfort myself and then I feel worse. I'm sick of the binge eating...

    I'd Give Anything To Be Told I'm Beautiful And Really Feel Like It. I'd Give Anything To Have Self Confidence.

    I've always been the fat kid but it never bugged me like it does now days, I always had lots of friends and was lucky enough to part of the 'cool kids". I lost all of that when my brother went to jail for molesting a best friend of mine in jr high. I still had a few friends but...

    Every time that I felt deeply depressed

    or suicidal, I ate something, and most of the time was chocolate. Chocolate made me feel a bit better, but nothing helped me at all. Here I am after years of depression, weighing 95 kilos... I hate myself, I hate my body. I tried many times to starve in order to lose weight, but...

    So I've decided that tomorrow I will start the

    ABC Diet. I can't keep being fat like this, I hate myself. If there are people out there who have done this (or is doing this currently) please message me or comment. I would like to know what you're eating on a 50 calorie day.
