I suffer from obesity and itâ€™s ruining my life. Iâ€™m 11 years old and just teetering on the edge of 200 pounds. The emotional pain as well as the physical pain are constantly eating at me. Every time I go to my parents saying that maybe they should consult my doctor about a diet and exercise program, they just roll their eyes and tell me that my weight isnâ€™t an issue. Yes it is! I am 99% sure that Iâ€™ve fallen into depression (I show every sign of it in the books) because of my weight and my parents wonâ€™t do anything to help me lose weight or gain confidence. I live in NYC, so I canâ€™t go play in my back yard, because I donâ€™t have one. I canâ€™t take a walk down the street because my parents wonâ€™t go with me and they wonâ€™t let me go by myself. They also wonâ€™t buy healthier food and are constantly buying junk food. Also, weâ€™re a bit tight on cash, so we canâ€™t afford a treadmill or something. I would have to lose about 100 pounds to have a healthy weight for my age, and how am I going to lose 100 pounds, with no parental support?
