Question :( - August 28th 2010, 12:25 AM

Formspring ruins my life, let me just say that.
Soo, I'm overweight, and I know it.
And if you took a trip to my formspring, all you can see is people calling me fat.
I think about stopping eating EVERYDAY, and I can't do it.
The reason I'm overweight is because if I eat one thing, I can't stop eating.
I'm getting more and more overweight.
What do I do?
I'm considering throwing up after I eat, too.
I reallly want to avoid bad things screwing up my life.

Love you-- Kayla c:

Feel free to PM me if you need anything or have any questions :-)

the fact that you want to avoid ruining your life is huge, so good for you.
don't throw up after you eat, that shouldnt be an option.
its all cliche but exercise, healthy dieting, eating right etc.
one thing you could try is finding a food that tastes good, and you like that you could eat a lot of, but is also healthy. that way you're not filling up on foods that make it worse.
and people will always criticize other people no matter what. just for not being like them. just because other ppl say the same things, doesnt mean they are right. everyone has insecurities, even those who make fun of other people. they just dont want to admit it. if you are happy, then let them say what they want. if you're not happy, make a change and do something about it.
its your body and no one has the right to tell you its not perfect.
i really hope this helps in some way

Delete your formspring. Now. All people ever do is judge others because they feel like crap about themselves. Its not worth it. The people that are called fat are rarely anything close to it, so dont listen to them.

If you really do want to lose weight you need to work on your binges. You could have binge eaing disorder, which you should get help for. Try eating slower, or chewing gum. Do not throw up. Youre on the right track saying you dont want to screw up your life, because skipping meals or purging WILL screw up your life. There are so many better ways to lose weight in a healthy manner.

Definately delete your formspring. If an internet site is getting you that down...and it is ruining your life, you need to not be on that site!
Also, you need to figure out the reasons as to why you 'overeat.' Is it a certain time of the day, is it if you are upset or angry? If you cant work out why you start to overeat, then you should try to avoid being bored at that time of day or try to avoid triggers that make you angry or upset. If you tend to eat at night...just go to bed earlier. If it is during the day, try keep yourself busy, go to friends houses or just find something to do. But whatever you do, do not consider purging!
