I'm 13, I think I'm 198 pounds..I'm 5'7? Idk, but I have been feeling so insecure latly.. i dont eat at school anymore, and i do gym, plus i do all the workouts from gym at home.. I look up tips to stop eatting, and i cry myself to sleep at night wishing to be beautiful.. I cut myself from the feeling of being a fat.. I have friends that care about me, but they don't understand how hard it is..

I want to find someone who will understand me.. I am so sick of looking in the mirror knowing that when I get to school all these girls wil be so skinny, and look so nice in their clothes.. While i feel like a fat freak.. I honestly don't know what more to do.. But i feel so ashamed because all of these sad storys of anorexic girls..But in the end i don't care all i want is to be thinner ;[

Fix your eyes on Jesus & not on the mirror, Brie, what Jesus sees is a beautiful girl that He loves so very much. And you can be thinner by learning how to eat healthy. You can loose weight & you don’t have to starve! Drink plenty of water, eat 5 smaller meals throughout the day, if you get hungry snack on vegetables. Following the food pyramid is a good idea. Do you have a health class in your area that you can join to help teach you the proper way to eat? Some of these classes also offer great accountability which makes it easier to loose way the right way. Also exercising 20-30 3x a wk is good – you don’t have to over do it. Do you have a video game system? There are a lot of video games designed to help you loose weight – a good one that my family has fun with is Just Dance, this could be something that you even play w/your friends if you want. Or go for a walk w/your friends or dog if you have one – walking is great cardio & stress relief. Don’t loose heart, take smalls steps at a time so you don’t become overwhelmed & if you mess up just brush it off & do the next right thing. Here is a verse that helped me when I tried to loose weight: Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Also it may seem hard, don’t compare yourself to others – this is a common trick the enemy uses to make you discontent w/the blessing God has given you, you will start to focus so much on what others have that you will be unable to be happy w/what you do have.
1Peter 5:8-11: Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen

The Lord Jesus Christ Cares
by: Antelop 7

I know you think and feel like no one loves you right now, but God Loves you and this is what He said in Jeremiah 31:3 “[3] Long ago the Lord said to Israel: "I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” God also said in Romans 12:12 “[12] be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful.”

Do you want to know the plan God has for you? Prosperity.
The plan of God for you is for you to prosper, His plan is not to harm you, but for you to have an expected end.{Jeremaih 29:11}

Do you want to know how God thinks about you?
He loves you.{John 3:16} For God so love you, that His only begotten Son Jesus christ, if you belive in your heart that Jesus is the son of God sent forth by God Himself to be the propitiation for all your sins, through faith in Jesus blood when He died on the cross of calvary, Then you shall not persih but have everlasting life. For God sent Jesus Christ into the world for you not to condemn you, but that through Jesus Christ You might be saved from the wrath of God against the Judgement day of God{ Romans 3:25}

Do you want to know the purpose of God for you? Salvation.

God purpose for you is that you be saved. God wants to save you by offering to recive the Lord Jesus christ who is the Way, Truth, and Life. The Lord Jesus has already lived the perfect life God wants from you, so all you have to do is receive Jesus, who did all the work for you. Jesus is already the only acceptable sacrifice to God.

Do you also want to know what the barrier between you and God is? Sin{ Romans
2:23;6:23} For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

But I know you will like to know the good news, and what the Lord has done for you. The Lord Jesus Has died for all your sins, and has the power to forgive you alll your sins before God you have committed.

Now I know the Lord is leading you to receive Him as your personal Lord and Savior. All you have to do is talk to the Lord. Tell God that you agree with Him, and that you have sinned . Then ask God to forgive you for all your sins, and thank Him for sending His Son to die for your sins on the Cross. Ask the Lord Jesus to come into to life and heart, to become your Lord and Savior, and conform you into the Image and likeness of God in Jesus name.


You're still beautiful

I used to be the same way. I tried everything to lose weight. But then I realized that beauty doesn't revolve around being skinny. You're beautiful no matter what your weight is :)
