&nb sp; My little sister is 5'6 and 114 pounds. She cries all the time and is depressed and says she is "fat". One of our family members told her she was getting chubby a few months ago and since then, she's been acting like this. I'm not very informed of what's an appropriate weight for a 14 year old girl of that height. But I hate to see her down like this! Advice would be greatly appreciated.
Her BMI is 18.4. She is at a good, healthy weight.
Oh goodness. When I was thirteen (a little into my ED) I was your sister's exact size - height, weight, all of it. Let her know that you care, and that you are willing to listen if she needs to cry or talk. Telling her 24/7 that she is NOT fat or chubby might be overkill, but just try to be supportive and watch over her.
I'm sorry she is so unhappy.
Today she was feeling a lot better. Hopefully its just a phase. I tell her time after time how lovely and slim she looks. She just wont believe it for herself. My parents and I are keeping close watch over her though to ensure that she's eating properly & not harming herself. Happy Easter Everyone! And thank you for the feedback.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
