ive not always been overweight but after i had my child
i gained four stone and its kept going on after a series of failed diets and knocked confidence. im 5′11 and i used to be a healthy size 12 hourglass figuire now im up to 20 stone and last year someone called me fat when i was out for a birthday. i had never been called that before and it hurt. im 21 and when i go out i always feel like everyone is laughing at me and i get a nasty comment at least once everytime i go out. i lost three stone out of motivation but gained it all back after the end of a relationship. i know how to diet and excercise but whenever i get a funny look or a nasty comment all think is well whats the point in trying and go back to square one. its come to the point where i think some of my friends dont mind the fact im obese because it makes them look better. id love to have the confidence to wear a nice dress or something similar to other girls my age or at least be able to stay motivated after a rejection or put down because of my weight. but as im not used to the name calling it hurts so much. im on antidepressants now because of it. i hate going out and whenever someone chats me up i assume its a bet or a joke. what should i do to build confidence? im not ugly and when i was slim i was so confident and happy with the way i looked and i feel like this is punishment for that
