I'm Fat and Very Self-Conscious

QI have a problem. I eat too much and that's why I'm 20 lbs. overweight. I really want to be thin but I think it may be the family genes kicking in. I am V E R Y self-conscious, I guess. But I'm really tall too.

Well anyway, the other day some guy friends of mine were talking in the bathroom while I waited for them outside. They were talking (kinda loudly) and they must not have noticed I could hear them, but they were saying stuff about my ex- boyfriend and how he only went out with me because he wanted to do something charitable for me because he thinks I'm fat. They were saying that that was sooo mean. Well anyway I got real sad and went home but I was wondering if there is any way (that you know of) that could change my appearance to guys instead of just being the fat girl?

AI'm sorry that you had to over-hear those hurtful things from the boys. You know what? It is soooo highly unlikely that a guy would go out with someone just to be "charitable". I bet that your ex-boyfriend was feeling bad about the break-up, or was feeling mad at you about something and said it out of anger or pain. I'm sure that's not the real reason he went out with you!

Like I tell everyone who asks for advice about losing weight, consult your doctor, because they know how to help you lose weight in a healthy way, how much you need to lose for your size, what diet would be best for you, and what exercises would be best or harmful for you, if there are any.

Don't lose the weight because you think that it will make people like you better. Lose it only if you think it will make you happier with yourself.

You'll always be the same person deep down inside no matter what. You can overcome the issue of your weight by being out-going and not letting it stop you from doing the things you enjoy.

If other people see that it doesn't bother you, then why should they worry about it either, right? It can be hard to make yourself go out and do things when you are feeling bad about yourself, but if you push yourself the first few times it will get easier, and you can start enjoying yourself again.

Remember, you are not your weight. You are this bright person, with a vivid, friendly personality. Who can resist that?
