I am 29 and weigh 110 kilo. I have tried lose weight for many years and
have tested many methods but I have not been successful. I would like to tell you about some of the things which have happened to me.
On one occasion I was at a dance and invited a man to dance, but he turned me down scornfully by saying: "I don't like moving furniture!"
On another occasion a colleague left a book about slimming on my office desk.
Once I went for a walk, some young boys ran after me and grunted like a pig.
I am always extremely upset and the result is that I eat even more to
console myself. Must those with my weight problem live with all these
insults which only make it worse for us? When people have other illnesses they are met with friendliness and understanding. Nowadays, I am afraid to go out; it can be so awful.
