What do they say about you? And 2 pounds is nothing!! Don't go trying to lose that, it's nothing!

Fatness
by: S'ambrosia

Samade,
You described yourself as being only 2 pounds overweight, yet you labeled yourself as "fatness." It seems like you've begun to take on "fatness" as an identity. You may have signed your name as that for another reason, but I at least want to get you to look at the way you label yourself.

I'd like for you to write down the things that you like about yourself. Try to have as any outward aspects (i.e. pretty eyes) as there are inward (i.e. gentleness). Begin to use those words as labels for yourself instead of negative terms. Affirm the beauty you see in yourself and others will take notice.

2 pounds isn't much to concern yourself with, just try to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Exercising will help you feel better physically and emotionally.
I am sorry that others tease you and make fun of you, I know that is hard and painful but try to not let it get to you - the Bible tells us to resist the enemy and he will flee from us - if these people see they aren't getting to you there is a good chance they will stop. Also, know that what they say isn't true - if your peers called you a table would you be upset? Probablly not because you are confident that you are not a table, that's silly and absured so as tough as it may be try to not listen to the lies they send towards you to tear you down - The Bible tells us that God gave us worth when He purchased us to be His own people (Ephesians 1:14) AND God loves you very, very much - ask Him to let you feel His love and to help you feel secure. Ask Him also to bless you w/some friends at your private school - God designed us to be in relationships and will send someone to you that can provide encouragement - just go to Him and open up to Him. Feel Him wrap His arms wrap around you and hear Him tell you you are beautiful and that you matter!

You know what, don't even worry about losing 2 lbs. God loves you just the way you are, and if people can't accept you for who you are, they are stupid!You're NOT FAT, so don't worry about it.
