let me tell you one thing:

you are not the fattist person in the world

have you seen those programmes about people who can't get out of bed, or people that have to have special clothes made for them

it will take time, but I know you can get where you want to be.

I can sort of relate, I'm fat too, (I can't even fit in a roller coaster!), and I have overeating disorder

that said, I'm actually happy with my weight and don't want to lose it- past reasons..

good luck

I can relate on the opposite end of the spectrum. I was a bag of bones for a long time and now just underweight and feel as big as a house, suicidal,the number on the scale rules my day to the point I've had so much other **** to deal with in life I've needed to let the numbers go to maintain sanity.


I think with BDD it never goes away...no matter your weight. We need to find ways of improving your self image, whether that be your fashion, body mods like piercings, tattoos and jewellery....doing things you love and must cherish your body for. BDD is debilitating and takes its toll on your mental health it helps to connect with others that understand, much love to you (and hopefully to yourself, an ongoing process). Everyone deserves celebration for WHO THEY ARE not what they look like, I try to tell myself this each and every day.

Losing weight is ok, but please remember that you're much, much more than your physical appearence.
