I have been sick since Monday with a fever (104 was the highest) and an extremely bad sore throat. My mom is taking me in to the doctors today to see if I have strep.
My problem is that since Monday I have lost 3.5 pounds in around two days... because it is around 9:45 in the morning right now. There is a noticable difference in my body (love handles... stomach). Is it a problem to be losing that much weight?

Today: 225 lb - YAY!!! I'm not the only one home sick. I can't really hold anything down. I mean, I walked to school, and about half a block from there i started to feel really sick so i went to the nurse at the beginning of first period and at first(since i didnt have a fever) she wasnt gonna let me go home but i kinda-i really didnt feel good-got an attitude with her and she sent me home. I havent eaten anything but my mom is going to buy me some soup from St. Louis Bread Company(panera bread-st. louis is one of the only cities that still calls it 'st.louis bread')Well-I did better last night and i think the green tea and water i have been drinking the past few days is really helping out because i am at 225, even with my mcdonalds mess up. I hope everyone sick feels better and does good and i hope everyone else does good too!!!

I went to The Firm's website a while ago after seeing how many of you use it and have had results with it. Well, it looks alot like a woman/girl kind of video, and I'm, well, not one of those 2. So, anyone know any other things like The Firm that guys could use, or is The Firm alright?

Ht. 5'8", Today: 147 lb (BMI %tile: 77) - Hey everyone! I was here around 2 years ago...(I think) and I am doing pretty good. I check BB occasionally, and now have decided to post. I'm around 5'8", and 146.5 pounds; somewhat happy.
Oh, and another really cool thing. On that new "Kids helping Kids" section... I have 6 of my previous posts in it. I looked through them all, and the whole section is really helpful. =)

Start: 212 lb, Today: 187 lb - Hey everyone. I found this site and it looks helpful for overweight people.When I decided to lose weight I was 212lbs. and with eating less and excersizing, especially in gym class I am now down to 187lbs.I was wondering what I could do during the winter time, its freezing outside right now, and I don't know what I can do for excersize. I did have gym in school, but no longer do I have it. I kind of feel embarrased to excersize or do things like that with my parents around, it just seems weird.What do you guys think?

Okay, if you follow this plan then you can lose 3 inches in one week. Eat 3 healthy meals a day and 2 snacks. The first snack must be a fruit or vegetable and that goes the same for the second snack. In the morning, do 60 situps and 30 sidebends to each side. Make sure you are doing these exercises to the full extent and that you are doing them properly because if you won't see results. Before you go to bed, do 60 situps and then 30 sidebends on each side as you did in the morning. It will hurt the next day, believe me, but you must keep doing it for it to work. One week of exercising will be much worth the weight loss so keep to it!! It will be very uncomfortable at first, but you what you will accomplish should keep you going. Whoever ends up doing this, please end up posting how many inches youve lost!

wow- i really messed up on my diet tonight and i felt so disgusting. i promised to myself that i'll never ever eat myself sick again like i did tonight. it was more pain then joy. tomorrow i'm going to do great though- and i did drink a little over a gallon of water today so hopefully it wasn't a complete waste! i'm going to exersize a lot but i know that my week isn't destroyed by this- i might even lose more weight because of this because it's gotten me to do more about it. i've had 4 really good days and then 3 really bad days and still lost 2 pounds- heck- i did that last week! i was just a little stressed and bummed and depressed about school but after marty got out of work he made me feel so much better. he's my bestest friend in the entire world and i know that i can change my life however i want to with him by my side because i'm not so afraid of failing because he'll stick...

Hey everyone, i'm home sick today too... It seems like a lot of people are. I've eaten pretty well today, (considering the fact I can't swallow without severe pain haha) and I just read some of your posts, and alot of you seem to be doing really well, I'm really proud of you. And one of the posts said that in the end you have to lose weight for yourself, and I totally agree with that statement. It makes me think that I need to write down what my motivations are maybe that will help me in the long run. Let's see I almost wish I was at school cuz I'm really bored... So I guess I will end up studying or something.. and of course excersize =P. For some reason since thanksgiving, even though I ate pretty well, I don't have enough motivation. I really would like someone to talk to preferably someone my age, and for some reason e-mail isn't working, It has to be parental controls or something... (view more)
