I went to go drop my kids off at school and i always have people staring at me, i bet they think look at how huge she is. My children even get picked on at times because of my weight. but im trying my best to lose the weight. Wish people would understand it does take time and we dont enjoy being fat.

Hold your head up.
If you come across as confident and proud of yourself that's how ppl will see you.

DONT knock yourself in any way. When you find yourself saying things like "I'm so stupid" because you've done something wrong stop yourself immediately and correct it to something along the lines of "that was silly...I'll do it better next time"

If you're feeling intimidated say the letter 'D'

Might sound silly but try saying the letter 'S' then the letter 'D' and see the difference in how you feel. The D is more forceful and has to be said with shoulders up and chest out, S can be said slouched LOL

Hi Gemma. The following is my personal opinion (formed from my own experiences and observations), so don't take it as gospel - rather, something to take onboard and consider:

First, don't fall into the mistake of assuming most people are obsessed with how other people look.

It's natural for each of us to think we're at the centre of everyone's attention. And that may be true for a few fleeting seconds when we catch their eye. But most people are self-centred and are predominantly thinking about themselves: "how do I look", "what is he/she thinking of me", "I'm thirsty/bored/tired", "I do/don't feel in control of my present situation", "do my clothes look good on me?", etc.

Even when people DO pay attention to someone else it's often just to compare so they can boost their own self-esteem. It's nothing personal, and the aim of the comparison is to boost their own ego (yet more self-centeredness!).

However, there is one solution:
The solution is not some magical fairy dust that, when sprinkled over other people, makes them non-judgmental and accepting of everyone who seems different. That's never going to happen since human nature cannot be changed even with fairy dust - or anti-discrimination laws, for that matter. The only solution is to lose weight and become fit and healthy. It will take time. It will be difficult. It will be one of the best things you'll ever do in your life.

As you lose weight the first ten or twenty kilo loss will be noticeable to people who see you regularly. And you'll feel better and more confident as you address the internal issues which caused your weight-gain in the first place. Eventually people won't take any more notice of you than they do anyone else. It will take time, but as long as you have a good plan, determination and are honest with yourself then it will happen.

Just let them think what they want. Just prove yourself that sooner or later, you'll reach your goal. :))

You can make it. They can't do about this, they don't feed you or don;t even know you, so they should not speak about or look at you. Everyone has imperfections. Atleast, you have cute angels with you right? :)

Hey, be proud of yourself!

being fat is not easy. Use your story as a motivation to lose weight.

Start from that point.

Hope it help,

Sofia
