Reading your post reminds me of when I was 13 and I thought I was fat. In retrospect, I was normal weight, however I understand the pressure and desire to be thinner. I admire your attempts to get healthier food and exercise. That is generally the key to loosing weight and being healthier overall. Don't buy diet pills or starve yourself. Diet pills will mess with your body's chemistry, possibly making weight gain worse in the future. Starving yourself will have an opposite effect on your body. Your body will think it needs to conserve it's fat because its not getting enough nutrients, thus you won't loose the weight because your body is desperately trying to hang on to it.

One vegetable tray won't do the trick, you are right. Can you go with your mom to the grocery store and pick out vegetables to snack on? The trays are expensive. Pick out fresh vegetables and fruit, wash and cut them up yourself and put them in little baggies to grab on the go, ready in the fridge. Its much cheaper than a tray, that won't last long anyway.

Also, keep walking, if you have a dog that needs walked, please take it and you will both get exercise. Walk a little more each day.
Also, we are all different sizes and skinny jeans should be banned due to the pressures they create to be thin.
Another thing, it sounds like your mother may not be paying attention to your needs and you sound a little angry that she is preoccupied with dumb things. That's okay, you have a right to be angry. Let her know that what she buys at the store is important to you and you need her support. If she doesn't follow through, remember that its not your fault and you are a lovable child no matter what.
