Hi my name is Megan im 17 and i am trying to lose weight. i dont like talking about my weight because i always feel people are judging me by it. like when i meet someone the first thing i think they see is a "fat girl". this has really hurt me when trying to make friends (this year i moved to a new school) i hate eating with other people around because i feel the are watching everything i eat. i weigh 230 lbs. i started gain weight when my parents got divorced. i dont really know how to lose weight because i am afraid to tell anyone im trying...or ask for help. its like i dont want people to know i dont like how i look. i have lost some weight in the past few months but that was because i got really sick one time and didnt eat for 3 days. i just want some help for people who are in the same boat as me. i hope this site will help me with that.
