Do you have to a be a high school senior for I Used to be Fat? Do you have to a be a high school senior or can you just be in high school in general? Because I am a high school sophmore and i really want to lose weight. I am 5'9'' and 219 pounds. I've been overweight ever since 3rd grade and I really want to change that. I'm the most active person in my family, but I'm still bigger than everyone. Once I saw this show I knew that this is the push I've been looking for. Sometimes working out by myself gets boring and I think that my family doesn't really want to help me lose the weight. I hate going to clothing stores and seeing that they don't have my size in something I want or the looks that people give me when I walk around. I also have a lack of confidence in myself because of my weight and I think people don't like me because of my weight. I really don't like how I look right now and I would do anything to change the way I look.
