My name Allie.
I am sixteen years old and have battled with my weight for forever. Both my parents are morbidly obese, my father more so than my mother because my mother never eats badly.
For about a year I was in a good weight zone after losing all the extra kilos (around the age 13) and then I got sick with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 2 and a half years. They then found the source of the problem, my gallbladder, and removed it. I lost about 10 kilos before going into hospital (mainly because I did not eat or drink and threw up my entire body contents.)
I gained it all back, and more... And though people compare me to how I used to look and say I look fabulous compared to then I still would like to lose another 5 - 10 kilos, because after a surgery this year my leg is quite sore already and doesn't need my extra weight. I am not saying these things to sound self conscious.
I am approximately 150 cm, and around 75 kilos (I mainly stay at a steady 72 - 73).
It's a lot, and though a lot of it is muscle from the sport I choose to specialise in, I still really need to lose some kilos.
I am here because I need support. I got my school picture today and almost cried because I had a double chin from smiling.
I hate seeing photos of myself, after walking out of home thinking I look great.
I am just a girl, trying to do her VCE and I guess I need a kick in the bum and to know someone is by my side
So if you do read this, thank you for taking the time.
See you all around
