Hi there, I was a fat kid during the early days of my life, till my 16th year I was quite fat and everybody used to make fun of me. Because of this I became a loner, finding clothes for me was a problem for my parents, and till my 16th year I never even wore a T-shirt, because at that time,such big sizes were not available in India. It was only after I became sick, at the age of 16, that I lost weight and my life changed, and I was able to wear mordern dresses. Has anything like this happened to you? Your responses.

Hi Ramesh, I am from India too, and I know how fat kids are treated in India, with utter disrespect. Your sickness somehow proved to be a lifesaver, weird, isn't it. It once happened to me that at the age of 12, I became heavily sick because of Typhoid. I was sick like for 20 days and was just imagining that I would have to do a lot of work to cover up the syllabus. But amazingly, only 5 pages of work had been done in those 20 days which was more than a miracle. It was actually because of the Youth Festival Practices in our school. Regards, AJ-Rox

Thanks for the response AJ-Rox, what a coincidence, it was the same Typhoid which made me sick, the only difference was I was sick for about 30 to 35 days, but I did not miss my school, because it happened during the summer vacations, and the only difference was I left the school as a fat boy and returned after the summer vacations like a normal teenager.

I am also a little fat, especially my legs. There are so much fat in my legs and they are very heavy, when compared with the other girls in my school , I feel so embarassed, because I can not wear beautiful thin trousers and can not wear beautiful skirt.
