Answer on I feel ugly and fat can someone please help me?
Im the same age and i used to feel like that! People used to say, No you dont! You look fine! But i just thought i didnt. Dont worry too much. Just do some sports, run, find something that you enjoy thats fun. Also, my mum got me this hula hoop and it was really REALLY fun and it tones the stomache which is good.
Dont think your ugly. Everyone is beautiful.
Good luck! Just have fun with it, it takes time!
