I am trying to lose as much weight as i can before i move during the summer, cause no one there will know what i looked like now, you know a fresh start. I guess im not overweight acording to this site, but i am close. i weigh 140 lbs. (around i cant remember) and i am 5'3" tall. I wanna lose atleast 20 lbs (20-40 would make me happy) but i dunno how to lose weight! I walk about 3 miles home from school, mow my yard and the neighbor's yard every weekend (at noon when it is the hottest, makes you sweat),and i have cut my meals in half and nothing has changed! I really wanna change cause i am really unhappy. i dont look like i am 140 cause i got a lot of muscle in my arms and legs but i got a little gut its not flubbery but it is alot bigger than i would like it to be. Please respond! Thanx -Jamie

Hi; I'm about 5'8'' and 166-167lbs. I have finally gotten into a good exersize routine. I work out aerobically for 45-60mins 4 times a week at a gym, and lift weights for 30mins about 4 times a week. I also walk my dog almost everyday. For breakfast and lunch I am able to eat healthy because I pack my food and go to school. But when I come home I always eat more than I should for dinner. I do normally stick to a majority of veggies. My big problem is after dinner. I usually allow myself a non-fat yougurt or fat free frozen yougurt. But always find myself snacking. Whether it me good foods (fruits) or not so good (my big weakness is graham crackers and peanut butter.) I just really need some tips from you all on how to get over these cravings. Because I know I"m not actually hungry. THanks

I know how hard it is to lose weight as a young person. Many weight loss plans tell you you're too young to excerise intently or use weight training, but it's simply not true. Here is what I recommend doing. Decide, in specific, how much of your life you're willing to devote to this... (Click here to see rest of message)

This is so funny.. the website people deleted my post I put here yesterday because it was a website to help you. I guess they don't want you to leave their website. And now I can't find it again.. I'm extremely sorry because it was the greatest website I've found and I've been searching for one for years now.

Hey...I just want to tell all of you that you shouldn't care what people think of you. If kids at school call you fat,just ignore them. Its whats on the inside that counts. They aren't worth your tears. The only reason that they call you fat or names is because they have their own insecurities.Lose weight for yourself and no one else. If you need some tips on losing weight or need a penpal email me at XRockGurl88X@aol.com ..I'm 14..I don't care what age you are. Just email me.

K I'm REALLY confused. I was on here almost 2 years ago (Jan. 2001) and I did the weight calculator thing, and it said that I was at rick of being overweight. K well now I'm almost 4 inches taller, and weigh like, 5 pounds more, and my BMI is the 74th percentile, but I put in my old height (and I changed the birthday and stuff, so that it was accurate to 2 years ago), and my old weight, but it doesn't say that I was at risk for being overweight or anything. Did they change the criteria for calculating it? I really don't know what's going on! If anyone could help me, that'd be great!
