I'm 16 and I was always quite a chubby kid. I'm quite tall so I was never fat the way the weight sits on me makes me look more big boned rather then fat... because of that no one ever helped me try and lose weight.
I started eating very large amounts when I was very little and it was all processed and just not healthy at all. I spent a lot of time hating my body and doing stupid diets- ya'know the ones that make you end up gaining twice the weight. I looked at a lot of thinspo and even ended up on some pro ana but through that I found fitspo. I learned to love my body for just working and started paying more attention to nutritional value rather than calories. i'm now eating more than ever but losing more than ever and feel better in general.
It all sounds great aside from my mum keeps acting like i'm aiming to be a skeleton. She calls me over obsessed when I try to exercise 4 times a week, keeps telling me i'm already skinny , makes a massive deal out of me paying attention to portion size and makes remarks like "will you be happy when you're five stone" and "If you go under 10 i'm taking you to the doctor". She tells my whole family and I have to go through lectures and lectures of how I am skinny. The weightloss isn't even my main goal anymore, the more I exercise the more I can physically do. Before I couldn't even run for 10 minutes. My whole life she told me I was big boned and will never look slim which i accepted but now i'm getting closer to the medium of my bmi (notice how I said medium) I'm looking slimmer.
On the flip side when I go on binges she mocks me for being fat. My long term goal is to get to 135 pounds, i don't mind if it takes years because for the first time I accept and love my body. My mum says anything below 140 pounds is anorexic. I don't want to lie about my goals, I don't feel like I should need to.
I know she just cares but weight loss and becoming fit are hard and even hard when you have no support. any advice?
Thankyou so much for reading this, sorry it's massively long >.>
