How to gain weight? - April 23rd 2011, 10:04 AM

I am 5'4 and I am currently XXpounds. I used to average around XX and XX pounds, never going over or under, but after this week of school, I found out that I have lost weight. I have experimented myself, that I lost weight faster than any of my friends and classmates.

I love to eat. I eat all the time, and my family knows that. It doesn't matter how much I eat, I don't get past XX pounds. Sometimes my mouth doesn't stop eating from morning to night.

I have been told multiple times that other's envy me cause I can't gain weight. But I don't know what's there to envy. Being skinny has it's downside too.

For example, when I sit too long on a chair, my butt starts to hurt. I can feel my bones touching the hard wooden chair. This causes me to change my positions constantly. It's embarrasing since sometimes when the principle or someone important is speaking, I am the only one moving around.

Also, due to this, I have small breasts. Due to this I am constantly made fun of. There was this one time at school where my friend and I volenteered to become the speakers of an event. We had to wear dresses and dress-up. When one of the guys in the student union heard that I was gonna be a speaker, he said that since my breasts are so small, I wouldn't look good in a dress. From that comment everybody in the room didn't speak. All eyes where on me, I could feel sympothy and pity. It hurted me so much that I told them that I didn't want to be a speaker anymore. I passed up something that I was really excited for.

I have tried to gain weight. Junk food between meals, two bowls of rice everytime. But nothing really worked, I can only get near xxpounds, but I can never get over it. Sometimes after eating till I feel like I can't eat anymore, after a few minutes, I have the urge to munch on something.

Last week, due to trying to save money, I only ate during meals, no snacks in between. I cleaned my plate at night, but whenever I lie down to sleep at night, I can hear my stomache growl so loud that I feel embarassed.

The first question I have is do you exercise much? Feel free to PM me if you'd be more comfortable talking there.

I think I do, I mean I'm the most sporty girl in my class. When we have to run 3 circles in P.E. for girls, I always run 5 circles, the amount for boys. Also I am one of the founders in our school's skateboarding club. :]
I love to shoot hoops when there is an available court and a basketball x]

This is one of the things that separate me from my classmates. All of them are all girly girls and I have been a tomb boy since I was small x]

Heck, I just love to play~
