Minette trembled with anticipation as she bent over and dragged the scales into position. Last week's bullying had been awful; the taunts and name calling were unbearable. Even in the privacy of her own bathroom she felt vulnerable and, when she caught her own reflection in the shower cubicle door, it only added to her misery.

Slowly, she stepped onto the scales and waited with nervous anticipation for the digital readout to do its stuff.

A pool of tears came to her eyes as she realised she'd gained half a pound. Skinny Minnie would soon be just a bad memory.
