it seems my Vaejovis Carolinianus is scared of everything i try to feed her. moths crickets. tiny frog. eveything... like i make sure the food isnt too big. i think she might be in premolt but still this has been ever since i got her. im fine if she is just a wimp i will still love her. i just worry she wont eat and will be malnourished.

How big, exactly, are the things you are trying to feed her compared to her body size? Also, if she's pre-molt or gravid, that is normal. How long have you had her again?

Usually the only things that cause fatness and loss of appetite are pregnancy and being in pre-molt. Old age can cause loss of appetite, but not weight gain.

They really only get like 1-1.5 inches from what I've been reading. She may very well be gravid. They act weird when they're gravid. Same with pre-molt. I'd still like to hear what more experienced people say, but I'd say it's normal behavior for her condition, whichever it may be.

You say she's scared... Is she running away all crazy from everything or is she just not eating?

Not eating is a sign of an upcoming molt I have two premolt scorps that have been fasting for 3 months now.

Would the scorpion run like it's terrified of the food, though?
