Hi, I was reading your profile and had a few thoughts. First of all, I think you are a beautiful person inside already, I'm sure. We all are. Secondly, isn't it great to have that feeling of losing a significant amount of weight? What a great start! That's how I was last summer when I lost weight without trying and it was a great motivation! Also, I know how that goes with the parent pressuring you to lose weight. My dad kind of did that. Not too bad but it was enough to affect my feelings. Actually, my older brother first brought it up to me and told me I should go on a diet in the 5th grade and that was an eye opener. Until then I had no idea people came in different sizes. But, unfortunately I didn't take their advice. And here we both are. But, I personally, love to prove people wrong so I look at it as that. I will prove them wrong by losing lots of weight and looking amazing! Keep up the great work, I know you (and I) can do it!!
