meghan_mascara: The Big Move

Hello, my dears,
You see I've always been "big", bigger than I've been. Growing up my Dad always let me know when I gained weight. It was usually inbetween the winter (after my dance classes ended) to the end of spring (when school ended) when I gained my weight.

I was doing really fine, sure I wasn't moving as much as I should have but I wasn't massive and on the 28th of Auguat, 2008 I moved from Canada to Scotland.

When I first moved over I was getting everything I wanted to make me feel "comfortable".
Also because my Mum and I came over and then my Dad came a month later I didn't have him telling me what I can and can't eat. I also didn't know many people or where I was going so I wasn't getting out much and I gained alot of weight.

Everyday when I'd come home from school I would have a can of Irn Bru or Coca Cola and one maybe 2 packets of Walkers Baked crisps. Now is that FAT or what.

Over the summer I stayed in a flat with my Mum and Dad. I wouldn't get up until about 11am everyday so I missed breakfast and my dad went to work at 3 -8pm Monday to Friday so we all ate at 2 which ment I skipped lunch as well. When I went back to school everyone who hadn't seen me said I'd lost tons of weight.

But now I'm back with my Gran every school day I'm worried I'll start binge eating again and get fatter than I am.

My parents are moving in with my Gran and I now my Dad will be on my back again.

Do you have any tips for simple excercise and if you could share your routines or tips for how to eat to get full quicker, then please share <3

Ta-ta for now;

p.s. Just recently I was getting pretty fed up with the way I looked so I looked up "how to lose weight" and "how to be thin" onto Google and found all these Pro-Ana websites and fell in love.

Please don't go calling me wannarexic. I don't want to be Anorexic. I don't know what it is I like about them. I just do.

Anorexia is a serious disease and it's awful that people online are trying to spread it to others.

But that aside, it's pretty hard to eat healthy in Scotland (I studied there for some time). I ate a lot of Indian food while I was over there, and the Diet Coke was way more amazing than it is here in America.

haha, yeah, it is pretty hard. Everyone loves buiscuts so much.

And I totallt agree the Diet Coke is a MILLION times better. :)

Eat lots of protein..it will help keep you full longer. Eat 5-6 smaller meals a day every 2-3 hours apart...keeps your metabolism running which in turn burns way more fat.
