    No Self Control.

    I've always had a 'pretty face' I dress nice, I do my make up and hair. None of that matters though because Im fat. I feel disgusting, I tell my friends what I would wear if I wasn't fat, and they end up wearing it and looking great. I start to hate myself for not having enough...

    Will It Ever End?

    I know I'm fat. I know other people know that I'm fat. I see the way they stare at me like I'm a disgusting piece of ****. That's how I see myself whenever I catch my reflection. And I ask myself, will it ever end? All my life I've been fat. People try to tell me otherwise, but...

    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...

    Wanna fix my body!

    I'm 167cm and 80kg. At the height of my bulimia, I was 48kg. I want to get back to about 55kg. I'm on Duromine because I have ruined my metabolism from my eating disorder. Does anyone have any ideas on how to overcome an addiction to food?

    I'm Such a Greedy ************!

    Well, not so much anymore. I don't eat a lot anymore, but I used to. I'm very sedentary because of my depression. The antidepressants made me overeat & gain weight. Otherwise, I'd be exercising. I'm @ least trying to improve my diet. I drink more water.

    Fat Is Uncomfortable

    I hate how the fat just lies in big rolls and it gets in the way.  It is so uncomfortable!!  I have always been fat except for a few brief times when I lost weight for a little while.  I wish I could just accept it but I can't seem to do so.
