Arnold, you don't mention much about your age and situation.

If you haven't seen a doctor about your weight issue, you should. There are many medical issues that can make it hard to lose weight. Also, a good doctor can help you establish a healthy diet that takes your age and physical condition into account.

Don't try to fight this battle alone.

Sorry Arnold for everything your going through. People can be so mean to overweight people.
I'm currently 50 pounds overweight and people just treat you differently when you are fat. That's how I feel anyway.

I think your parents mean well but the way they are going about it is hurtful. R u being bullied in school about it? I'm not sure how to handle that myself other than I know what it's like to be bullied.

About your weight, do you want to diet? have you dieted? or don't want to diet. Where are you at? After about 3 years of being overweight, I just started dieting last week. It's not easy. I think I am motivated alittle by my co-workers who keep making comments to me about my weight both men and women.

As for the people making comments just ignore them. Hope this helps.

I am at a young age and I'm really heavy and yes I want to diet but I guess I'm not determined enough, nd at the same time I can't accepte who I am as a person because of school and parents

If you're at a very young age then who's feeding you?? Who's responsibility is it to ensure that you do physical activities such as sports?? That's right, your parents.

Unfortunately some parents criticize without realizing the effect they are having on their own children. Arnold, do you feel able to open up about how you feel to your parents when they criticize you like this? Perhaps they don't even know it hurts you, and letting them know they might be able to turn around this behavior and support you in your endeavors to be how you want to be - in diet, exercise, confidence in yourself.

As I see OldLady mentioned there, don't try to fight the battle alone. Before I joined the military many years ago I exercised in my room and went out for a short run in the blocks near to my house after dark - self conscious in everything. I did enough to pass the fitness tests. It's a good place to start!
