The Fat Kid.
by Scarlett Allen
from when i was 10 i was overweight. i used to get called Fat Kid, Fat Ass, Ugly, Fatty Patty and many more. by the time i was 11 i weighed 160 pounds, i comfort ate and was upset. i felt depressed. the only way to be loved was to loose weight, in my eyes anyway. i stopped eating and became anorexic. i drank 6 glasses of water a day and ate one slice of bread and an orange. in 2 months i had lost 40 pounds. then at 15 i became pregnant. i had the baby and gained 100 pounds. being over 220 pounds and being 5 foot 2, at 16 is disgusting. i went to see a doctor, who gave me a life plan. i ate 1400 calories a day, did 1 hour of cardio and went for 5 mile walks every morning. i remember, that first weigh-in. 223 pounds. i felt ashamed. but the following week, when i went back i weighed 209 pounds. i thought the scales must be wrong. i had lost a stone! 14 pounds! in a week! the following week i lost 16 pounds, then 14, then 13. i was always losing at least 10 pounds. i was so determined to be thin. after around 3 months i went to the doctors. 98 pounds. i was UNDER WEIGHT! i was actually skinny! since then i have gained a bit. i gained 16 pounds, but have stayed that weight for over a year now. i am amazed, no one calls me the fat kid anymore. i am beautiful.
