Hey, my name is Hannah and I am obese. There, I said it. The 'big' word. OBESE!!!!
This word is basically banned in my house because everyone else is so 'picture perfect'. My parents are always nagging me to lose weight and are also teasing me non-stop, saying it will help. It doesn't. I actually had it under control until about two years ago when it started to spirial out of control. I currently weight 115.5kg (I am around 5'5"/5'6") and everyone judges me. What my parents fail to notice is that they are feeding my depression, my self-loathing and my obesity as when I feel down, all I can do it eat. It is frustrating to think no one wants to be near me. This is something my father actually said:
Hannah, no boy wants you because of one simple reason. You are fat, ugly, stupid and unsuccessful.
The rest I won't post, it was a little rude after that to be perfectly honest. What he doesn't realise is that I am great at music and school, along with reading and taking care of others, but no one gives me the time of day. It seems to be successful, I have to be 'Western Pretty' (meaning skinny). I don't know what to do or how to react. Please help me before I end up with something like diabetes!!!
