I am 18, a female, 5 ft 3 and 186 pounds. Yes I am obese, and it hurts.A lot be people on my moms side were obese, but my mom was an extremely skinny teen. Also, my younger sister is skinny too. I have been overwieght since I was 11, which was like, an overnight thing. I can look at pictures, and just see how I blow up. I have emotion eating problems, but this cannot be the only reason. Why an I obese? Are there other resons? HELP
I've always used these words to help me "So if the solution has never been to look in yourself, how is it that you expect to find it anywhere else?". I found the first step for me to start losing weight was to accept myself for who I am. Once I got over that hump I didn't really care about my weight, but moreso became concerned about my health and I decided my weight is the last thing I want to worry about in life, cause there are better things in life that I should enjoy. Gradually I just lost the weight and I'm still the same old me, though more confident and bold, and I believe in myself. Just remember to always keep your head up. I would recommend as the previous poster said, visit the doctors for a check up to ensure that there are no serious health issues that reside and then make some changes in your life. As hard as it may be, I know from my own experiences, but change is always good. Don't be afraid of it, embrace it. Hope that helped!
