A murderous fire in Birmingham


On 28th February, a woman was killed in her own house by a group of four boys. The woman was abused and beaten to death.

Yesterday a group of boys aged fifteen to twenty abused a young girl and beat her to death. But one accident rarely comes alone. After the group of boys had left the house and the corpse, a boy accidently threw a cigarette that wasn’t completely off into the garden and set the house on fire. Although the fire destroyed a great part of the house, there was still clear evidence, so the police was fast and a few hours after the fire the murderers were tracked down and put behind bars.

I love eating at McDonald’s and…


...restaurants where I can eat fast-food. I think that fast-food is delicious. I love lots and lots of calories! When I go to McDonald's I eat a lot but I never get satisfied. I eat three Big Mc's and a Happy Meal. For dessert I eat an ice cream. It's a Mac flurry, YUMMY! I love ice cream. I can't choose which one of these restaurants I like the most: McDonald's or Burger Ranch? On one hand I prefer Burger Ranch's meat, on the other hand on McDonald’s the chips are better and its cheaper than Burger Ranch. I can't decide. My parents say to me that I have fat thoughts, but I don't think so. At school

rapaz_gordo.jpgthe other pupils are teasing me because they think I'm fat. That makes me sad. I can't buy clothes in normal stores because of my size. I use XXL. Everyday I come home from school, crying. When i'm sad i like to eat. I like to comfort eating. Then i go to McDonald's and eat a Happy Meal and at least one ice cream. I'm growing fatter and fatter every day and it's getting harder to keep on listening to what all the other pupils says about my size. I'm a fat fifteen-year old boy, I can't run, I can't swim, I can't play with my friends. I'm not anymore a normal boy. Until I was 5 years old, I had a normal size, now I'm just a fat boy that can't do anything. What can I do? I can't stop eating; I can't stop to be sat at the sofa, watching TV all day. Will I be back to normal? I'm hopeful because I'm a young kid. I'm so tired of being the fat boy that no one likes.





So I decided to subscribe me in one of those TV shows where people lose weight. And they chose me to be in their show. The first day in the show I was very nervous and scared of what the other kids from the school would think about it when they saw me in this show. But then I just thought of how happy I would be after I lost weight. So I was ready to do my best. It was the show; "The biggest loser". The people who were in the show were very friendly, they understood me. Slowly i started to get some better eating habits and doing lots of exercise. I started to lose weight and in the end I've lost over 80 pounds.



After the contest I was good-looking and got a date with the prettiest girl in my high school. My problem was that I've started to gain in weight again. She left me. It made me sad and then I went back to my old habits of eating until I become fat again. Then, as if I had come back to life I decided to start lose weight and do some exercise, again. I used the same methods I used in the competition and I started to feel better about myself.

This was the story about a boy called Jim who was fat and and kept losing and gaining weight over and over again.

But this is also a story about many other people who struggles with their weight.


The End
