Hey, I'm Jenna
I've been overweight, pretty much my whole life. When I was 13, I got down to a size 6. Which was amazing for my body type. But then I started getting heavier, and (it'd be nice to know if this happens to other people) I didn't notice. I mean, I knew my clothes weren't fitting, but I still felt the same size. In my head, I was still thin. So I didn't realize how much weight I'd put on until I looked at older pictures of myself and I just started crying.
I've heard of people that lose weight but still think they're fat because they're used to seeing someone thats overweight in the mirror, but for me, it was like, reverse. I had no idea how big I was until I did some comparing. It was heartbreaking.
I really, really, want to get serious about losing weight because I start college next year and I don't want to go to college being overweight! But it's so hard to do it without support, and I have no one to talk to about it because all of my friends are thin, and no one in my family really wants to diet.
