Well im 21 & im kinda overweight. And lately its been bothering me. I like this guy & he likes me but im scared about the way my body looks. Im short { 5'2") & i weight over 200 pounds but for some reason i dont look like i weigh that much but i sometimes i wonder why he likes me cause not alot of guys like girls my size. Anything i can do to lose weight cause im very disgusted when i look at myself . [Frown]

I'm sorry that you're feeling bad about your appearance. However, I'm not surprised at all that this guy finds you attractive. Even though the media often spreads the message that only a certain body type/appearance is attractive, real-life people are attracted to all sorts of different bodies/appearances. Some people find smaller people attractive, some find larger people attractive, some like long hair, some like short hair... I could go on and on.

Just FYI, we don't give weight loss advice here. If you want to talk about weight loss with someone, the best choice is to start with your healthcare provider, who can assess what you need for your health in terms of weight, and then also give you helps to either lose weight or become more fit (which doesn't always mean a person loses pounds) in a healthy way.
