    I can not hide behind baggy clothes anymore

    5
    I can not stand being called fat by students around campus. When I look in the mirror I am disgusted by how I look. I have lost confidence in myself and it has gotten to a point where I lock myself up in my room the whole day because I feel judged by just walking out of my room. I have tried joining the gym but that makes me feel stupid and I am not motivated to achieve my goals. Please help.
