Help! I'm a 17 year old girl. I'm 5'4 and 138 lbs. I feel terribly fat although I work out 5 times a week and eat healthy. I wear a size 5 or 7 in jeans (depending on style). Am I fat or just being paranoid?
You are just being paranoid. You are in the target weight range for your height.
Thank you. I use to be anorexic/bulimic..and i weighed 110 lbs. I guess i'm just not use to actually being at a normal weight for my height.
Considering you've suffered with body image, you are probably just paranoid. But that happens, I know..I'm a girl and I feel the same way. Just keep your head up and maybe stay off the scale if that helps.
I think you're healthy:) You are just paranoid.
Thank you everyone! I've decided to stay off the scale and up my intake of water & eliminate sugar from my diet. Praying this works!!
you. are. not. fat. heck, you weigh less than me and im 13. ur just being paraniod, which is to be expected if ur getting over an eating disorder.
you are so not fat. in fact, you are in the PERFECT weight range
Don't feel bad. I'm 5'9, but I'm underweight. I'm 116 lbs. and 16 years old. I feel fat, especially in the mirror and pics. :( Idk anymore. But with the advice I c people giving u here, it makes me feel less parniod.
I've come to realize people come in all shapes & sizes. Don't accept the medias version of "thin". (: be happy in your own skin!
Im 15, 4'11 and 90 lbs.
your not fat your just big boned
I've recently been to my doctor to discuss my concerns with my weight. After BMI calculations and BMR, she concluded I have more muscle (muscle weighs more than fat) I am only 6.4% fat! She suggested I do more toning exercises and drink more water though
You can talk to me.
thank you!! i actually have to sign off now :( but i'll post in the morning. thanks, cookiegirl. <3
Paranoid. My sister is 17 and only weighs like 10 pounds less than you and she's super skinny. You're fine :)
Its the disorder talking to you. If you've had anorexia you know that even at 110 pounds you felt fat. How you feel about your body is irrational and does not reflect your appearance. I know how hard it is to trust that you actually aren't fat after and ED but you can get through this.
Ur just being paraniod. I know what u mean tho, I sometimes feel fat, and I'm worse of then u. Other times tho, I look in the mirror, and see how beautiful I am. I work out, still, tho, cuz i feel healthy.
U need to do the same. Look in the mirror, and see what makes u beautiful, instead of what u don't like. Be confident and happy, since u can't be beautiful without those two virtues.
paranoid. thats completly average. maybe even lighter than average. you know what you should do? JOIN CREW! :D
