curves

I don't really know where to start. When I was in 6th grade, the boys in my class made fun of me a lot. That summer I started swimteam. I slimmed and got a lot of curve. I was fine with it up until this last summer. I had a hormone imbalance which made me have an irregular cycle. I was on my period for 6 months streight. When it finally got bad enough I decided to tell my mom. When I went to the doctor she told me it was really common. So to fix it they put you on birth control. When I started the pill I gained 15 pounds in 2 months. I was gaining so fast that now I have stretch marks. My self esteem really took a down fall. I felt so fat and I still do. I have been trying so hard to lose weight. In the last 3 months I have lost 10 pounds. But when i look in the mirror all I see are my flaws. Especially my body shape. I am 15 and wear a D36 bra size my pant size is between a 8 and 9. I may look skinny with over average size boobs and big hips, but I'm not. My friends tell me they wish they had my body type but they don't know how much I wish I could trade mine for theirs. My friends call me J-Lo cuz my but is big. They had me balance a pop can on my butt and I could. I acted like it was funny when I was around my friends, but I was crushed inside. Last year a girl I didn't even know asked me why I walked with my boobs and butt sticking out, which hurt a lot. I cry myself to sleep most nights. All day at school I want to cry. I feel like I do everything wrong. I try so hard to hide all of my self esteem issues. I am really talkitive and outgoing and everyone thinks I'm so happy and a lot of the time i am, but sometimes the happiest people are not that happy.

Hey there. Everyone is built differently. And just like how you want to be like someone else your friends want to be like you. You don't have to feel like you are a stranger because everyone is the same in that way. If you just learn to be happy with yourself you can change your outlook on life! Give yourself positive self-talk even if you don't believe it at first. Every time you feel like you are going to say something bad to yourself say something good to yourself instead. Call 1-800-759-0700 for some professional prayer counselors who are on line 24/7 to talk and help. I always call that line when I feel down and they always help me wonderfully!
Best wishes,
