Hey!
Well first of all Im fat too im 12 yrs. old and like [Edited]? My highest had been [Edited] and my lowest from when I was 11 is around [Edit]...
I went into a class just for kids they tought you how to eat and excerise!
***Sorry if I spell stuff wrong!!!***
At school I suck at P.e. and all I eat for lunch is crackers and water or a bananna and water ( pretty much any ONE thing and water.)
I've hear a boy say **oh even Sabreena (thats me) is bigger than you!!**
that hurt me SO much!!
My mom says I look skinny but I know I don't! I am very depressed and I want to die * but I'll never go through with killing myself* and I started cutting last night but I'm stopping! =)

I am going to try to writ more in my diary and in the class I took they said "keep and eating journal" maybe that will help you?

Be strong !
PS. also im p.e. we had to wear a beth for some game and it wouldn't fit me so I had to wear it higher than everyone elese! EMBARASSING!!!
When we have parties at school I'm embarassed to get anything fattening * im afraid people will look at me!*

Hope this helped! Inbox me whenever you want!


Allow yourself to develop in all aspects of life- cut out from toxic people and realize it's for the best. Love yourself endlessly, and even if you don't love yourself right now, fake it until you do.

Hey there,

I think instead of trying not to eat you should focus more on eating healthy meals. I think the reason you are having these binge episodes could be due, in part, to the fact that you are not eating. Your body shuts down and the next time it eats it wants to fill up on food. However, if you focused on eating proper meals you would be less likely to have these binge episodes because you body would be getting the nutrition that it needs.

I would also suggest that you try to focus on the emotions behind your binge episodes. Are you sad, angry, bored? If you can figure out what emotions are behind these episodes you can slowly work on dealing with them.

Do you think you could try reaching out to people about your struggle? You shouldn't have to go through this alone and the more people you have rallied behind you the better. Sometimes it can be hard to reach out but in the end it can be a good step to take. I also think that getting into a counselor would be a good idea. A counselor could help you figure out the reasons behind your eating issues, give you someone to talk to and help you find healthy coping skills to deal with everything.

I really hope this helped and if you need anything please feel free to use teenhelps many resources.
