So I'm having problems with food now. Ever since I've noticed that the birth control I'm on makes me gain weight, (it's to regulate my periods and acne), I've been cutting back to 700 cals a day and working out 2-3 times a day. I'm 20 years old, 5'5" and weight 118. I have too much stomach, thigh, and arm fat I need to get rid of to feel better about myself. I at least want to get down to 95 pounds and look thinner. I'm afraid that if I tell my mom about this that she will get mad and she won't want to pay for my treatment. So I'm just going to wait it out, and see what happens.
