Sometimes we don't see ourselves the way we really are, instead, we see ourselves the way we think others do, or we listen to someone's mean words about us and we start to believe them. Jamie did that. She started to believe what a mean girl said about her, started to believe she was fat, and she couldn't stop it. She lost weight, too much weight, and it made her sick. She had an eating disorder, and part of her knew it, but she couldn't fix herself. She needed help, but wouldn't go get it.
Finally, when her body gave up, she saw the truth - that she was beautiful in the body she was given, and that what we see in the mirror can never be the thing that others may call us.

I'll never have friends that support me cuz I'm fat and a loner, I spend every lunch by my seof watching my "friends" having fun without me and then I started comfort eating and then they came over but only to say I'm fat and this has been going on for years and I don't want to say anything otherwise my Mum will tell the school. I also have a stress problem and have a stash of food in the loft in my room 😢😭
People have to grow up and stop making fun of people and respect them, you don’t know what they are going through! I used to get bullied and yes people still talk behind my back but I just tell a teacher or get a friends to. But people needs to leave them, if your going to say something mean KEEP IT TO YOUR BLOODY SELF! If anybody sees this who is bullying people just stop it, there is no point your not going to get far in the future. And for people who is getting bullied don’t give up your goals and dreams your an incredibly an AMAZING person and don’t let people let you down for who you are! ❤️
something tells me that this is kinda fake. you can’t lose 10 pounds in a week, eventually weighing only 50 pounds when you weighed 110 before. she also sounds like she’s not a high schooler (she says it in the video) bc of all the terms she misused. idk, just seems sketchy
This is sad. I don't have an eating disorder but my high school and grade school bullied me so much it crushed my self esteem. Hence, until now, there are times I struggle myself looking at the mirror thinking I'm still fat instead of loving my body.
i am 23..... and i get bullied for being the only "stick" student. well, my school has all students with strong bodies. but here i come. the only stick beetween them all. i really wished i was you. really really do.
I swear to God I wouldn’t reason with anyone who bullies someone
Who is sexist
Who is racist
It wouldn’t take me a sec to punch their teeth out in a sec 😡 because the emotional pain they put through people is nothing compared to the punches they deserved!
My favorite part of this channel is the community and how they help people with disorders and perks or things that make them not want to go to school,being afraid of home, having any physical disorders, etc. The thought of a community helping people with open arms and helping with problems a person may have just makes me smile and thinking in our world, if you feel lonely, their is always someone who can help and cares about you, you just have to keep searching.NEVER foget their is someone in the world that cares, cares about YOU.
That's Anorexia if you dont know it here is the side effects
- Thinking your "FAT" but your just skinny
- Finding food with no calories
- Keep chewing on the same bite
- Cutting food into small pieces
- Passing out when in the time
Whatever when your a little bit fat Just think " YOU ARE PERFECT NO NEED TO THINK THE NEGATIVE" Just stay strong :)
I'm 4th grade and my pounds is 45 my friend said i'm skinny and that other girl. I was me skinny? HAAHAHA... Ok what... Wait in 4th grade 45pounds is that ok? Or i need to eat idc if i'm fat i'm proud of myself but not toooo fat tho..
Storytime: So when I was in seventh grade I was 150 pounds because I didn’t care about what I ate and was 5.3 at the time which was really bad.I decided that I needed to eat healthier so I stopped eating bad foods and skipped meals.By 8th grade,I had lost weight, but I still was overweight and wanted to lose more.So I stopped eating breakfast and then during the year I became depressed so I lost more weight and stopped eating lunch too.After that,I would eat around 1,000 calories a day but now I eat 300 or less calories and am 115 pounds.I know it’s unhealthy but I’m afraid to eat because I know I’m just going to gain the weight back again.A few weeks ago,I was playing with my friends on wiifit and I weighed 119 at the time and one of my friends kinda jokes around about my weight even though he’s more than me and it just hurts.A part of me wants to stop because I’m afraid that my parents will find out if I pass out from not eating enough but the other part of me wants to keep going until I’m underweight so he can’t joke around anymore.I know he’s just joking around and he is a caring person but I still feel like I have to be 100 pounds or less because of it.It’s been 3 days of barely any eating and I’m scared to eat but scared to pass out at the same time. I honestly don’t know what to do.I feel like I might have anorexia but I just don’t want to believe it but I feel like I do.I feel so cold and constantly look at the scale and the mirror and it just caused me to have a mental breakdown last night.I think I need help but I’m scared of my parents knowing and I feel like they have enough problems anyway.I feel like I’m just fucked no matter what I do.
Please if you’re trying to lose weight,don’t do it the way I did it because it’s unhealthy and once when you start it feels like you can’t stop starving yourself.And if you think you have a eating disorder,try to get help if you can.
