Hi Everyone! I found this site after deciding I needed someone to talk to. I am particularly looking for people around about my own age because I have never really come across someone my age who knows what I'm going through. I am an 18 year old girl. I've just immigrated from Scotland to Australia where everyone seems to be Thin, sporty pretty and tanned! I have been fat and battling with my weight for as long as I can remember. I have no idea what it feels like to be thin and I REALLY want that feeling. I weigh 115kg(252 pounds) and I think I'm about 1.6m tall which gives me a BMI of 44.9! I need to lose about 60kgs(132 pounds) to reach the healty weight that I should be for my age. I've never felt asif I can talk to friends about my problem as I don't like to draw unnecessary attention to my weight if I can help it. I also don't want it to seem as if i'm moaning too much because I know that I have gotten myself into this situation. My family, I feel, are not very supportive, especially my mum. She seems to think I should give up trying to lose weight after failing so many times. I have a severe motivation problem, especially when it comes to exercise. I would love a personal trainer or even to go to some kind of boot camp but neither I nor my parents could afford that kind of thing. There is so much I want to do but my weight is holding me back. I want people to see me as ME and take me seriously rather than just seeing me as the "fat girl". It's time for things to change but I don't know if I can do it without any help or support. Thats why I'm here.
