hey girl!
i think its just a girl thing wanting to be thin. i think as girls, we have to realize that not everyone is meant to be thin, and thats ok...my best friend can eat anything and everything she wants, and has had 2 kids, and is still really thin, but thats just how she naturally is..me, not so much..i struggle with my weight..i'm not what most people would consider to be overweight, but i struggle with a weak back, and weak left knee and both ankles, so i need to be thinner than what i am just b/c when i get to the weight i am and slightly more, my back, both ankles, and left knee hurt...but maybe its just the way you're built..maybe its genetics..if thats the case, i think you should talk to your parents about it and see if there's anything they can do to help you get to a more comfortable weight..i'll be praying for you!

i feel the exact same way about myself!!
God made everyone in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. You must have other features that make you beautiful. If you are really worried about your weight then maybe you shoud see a natropath just to help you understad a little bit more about your body and how to keep healthy. I naturally have a biult frame and i have just got to accept that and focus on my good features, and you should do the same too :) you are definitely not the only one feeling this way, so dont be too hard on yourself. Goodluck, and remeber that you are your own unique person. xx
