Am I fat??

by Beth

I am a young teen girl thirteen this summer and for about a year now I have been struggling with my body image I am 5 foot even and I weigh 170 lbs I look at the other girls around me and they are all so skinny. It makes me feel ashamed of my body I know I shouldnt care but I do. All I can think about sometimes is how I look. I really just do not know what to do.

You shouldn't be put so much attention on physical appearance. But to find out if ur weight is ok base on height check your IBO , Go to a doctor. Healthy interior is better. You are what u think. Don't c urself in ur eyes or as others see you. But see yourself as God createc you..wonderfully made.

No you are not fat no wear near it your weight is healthy for your'e height. It is really hard for most teen girls today to be comfortable with there body's because of all the super skinny girls we see in magazines and on t.v. You have to realize that these girls have been photo shopped to look like this and have really fast matabilism's . But everyone has different body's and some people are naturally thinner than others this does not mean you are fat. As long as you eat a healthy diet and do exersize then you have nothing to worry about.

Whishing you the very best , Emmie :D

Girl, don't listen to other people or anything. You are not fat trust me. And so, what don't care about it. I will tell you i am pretty big myself. But, don't worry about it. Don't let your weight get to high but, you are not at it just shows that you a health. An plus you could just be stressed. I know i am 15 and high school will keep you stressed.

Checking your BMI you are about 30 pounds overweight.
Checking my BMI I am about 20 pounds overweight.

For a 13 year old girl it's natural to gain about 10 to 15 pounds during the first year of puberty. Really, it it.
But not 30. I know it's very hard to hear this, I have told myself the same thing.

Here's a great site: Bulk Herb Store - look for the article entitled "Are You With Me?" - I'm trying it!

Love in Christ Beth!
