Patient :I need help, no matter where I go I'm getting the same answer I need to lose weight. But thats not the problem, I don't over eat. Im active and I eat good, I could eat better but I don't eat to call myself obese. I'm 18, and weigh 220. I don't know why my body looks like that. I'm in pain everyday. I can't stand for long without my lower back hurting so much. I seriously need help or some advice just something, please. Is there a way I could send a picture?
