I'm Overweight :(

So I'm oveweight. I was overweight even as a little girl. I remember when I was about in the second or third grade, I weighed 100 ibs. I also remember around that time that a little boy, who apparently had a crush on me, said of me: "I used to like her but not anymore. She's too fat." So that said it right there. I was looking at old pictures one day and saw how chunky I was back then. I think I looked pretty adorable even with all that fat on me, but still it wasn't good to be overweight at that age. I now feel a little embarassed to know that I was walking around looking like that back then.

I had lost all my baby fat the summer I was going into 6th grade, and I remember people telling me that I looked smaller. I went on a dangerous diet in summer of 2004 (when i was 14) and became sick. Eventually, I got off that diet and gained all my weight back from elementary school and more, now weighing in at 149 ibs at age 18.

I want to lose weight again but I always end up giving in . It's not easy staying on a diet (even a healthy one) and being overweight.

Don't get me wrong, I respect and love myself. I'm a great person. It's just this weight issue.

I feel your pain. I'm in the same situation right now. I can't get 30lbs off my body!

me too.......i've been a yo yo dieter all of my life, but 149, doesn't sound too bad, don't sweat it so much, I'm sure you're a beautiful person on the inside

yes! weight loss is hard. you just have to take it day by day. It took me 6 months to lose 40lbs. I had to really exercise to lose the last 10lbs but believe me once you are at your goal weight it's so worth it. Try not to be so hard on yourself. Its a total lifestyle change. Best of Luck..
