On the verge of eating nothing at all.

by Chelsea
(Australia)

I'm 13, I'm fairly short for my age and I weigh 45kg.
Everyday when I walk into school I am called awful names like, 'fat', 'ugly',and worse.
I try so hard to be thin, I only eat one meal a day..
I just want to fit in so much..
Why do I have to be so fat?

I am so sorry you feel this way , but understand people see you how you see yourself. Let me tell you how good God is. When you thinking highly of yourself at all stages GOD will make people see you the same way. You need to understand self esteem is called SELF ESTEEM because it is yours . You have to see yourself as beatiful and when you do, you will be greatly rewarded and how do i know this. Well God told me and you too.
Hebrews 10:35-36
35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Keep this scripture close and God closer and you will soon see yourself the way GOD does.

I'm praying for you. much Love !

Be happy to be alive. Be happy that God made you you. Be happy to be able to eat. Be happy to have the choice to eat. Others don't get the choice to eat. They only get one meal because that's all there is. And, sometimes they don't even get that. Instead of focusing on what people call you, focus on what you are thankful for, and what God calls you. Eat. And be thankful for it. It's not healthy to not eat. Be happy to have the choice to be healthy and chose the right choice. Learn to block out what they say and hear the word of god instead. Memorize verses that would help you, and in moments that you are called something, recall a verse where god proclaims his love to you. Don't get caught up in the little things in life, and sit back and waste your life fretting, Get up, and take things light-hearted and live until god takes you to live somewhere else. I prayed for you=-]. Sending love,
Natalie

confidence
by: Sharnetta C

People see the way you present yourself to them and sense how you feel about yourself. People shouldnt be puttign labels on you and you shouldnt be putting labels on yourself. God madde everyone diffrent and you just have to embrace what you have and be confident about it. Every girl comes in diffrent shapes and sizes and thats what makes you unique. Have you ever seen a girl who's more curvy than others but everyone likes her and shes popular and she seems to have everything together?..thats because she has confidence and she doenst care what other people think or say about her shes just being herself and letting her personality shine through. If you jsut be yourself and love yourself the way you are right now and remember that god loves you just the way you are right now things will get better. Plus your only 13, you have major growing to do and your body will surely change, just be patient. And if you wanna lose weight and get health consult with your doctor to see just how healthy you are and if theres anything you can do in a healthy way to lose weight.

Believe In Yourself

Hey there,
I totally understand where you are coming from. That was me once, and I was much younger than you. I was bullied all the time that I went home crying about how I wanted to be skinnier and being a dancer most of the other girls were skinny naturally and I was not. My advice is give yourself some me time and time to cheer yourself. Don't drop your meals to one a day, instead you should go back to three and try to eat healthy and in proportion giving yourself a treat every now and then. You could also start swimming as it would help tone the muscles and keep you fit as well. Exercising is a great way to feel good about yourself as the chemicals released when you exercise make you feel happy. Just think that if you start these healthy habits now, no matter how much bigger you may be compared to the other girls at school who can eat whatever they want because they stay skinny, at one point they are going to fill out and due to their lack of exercise and bad eating habits they will find it harder to get rid of the weight they put on. Feel confident in who you're body and think about the famous women with curves, Beyonce is a good example who looks good in her curves because she is confident. Don't confine your friendship choices to just your grade as I am sure that there is at least one other girl in your school somewhere who is being bullied just because they don't fit in but as the beautiful Coco Chanel once said, "In Order to Be Irreplaceable, One Must Always Be Different."
