Hey guys! I'm 14 years old and I'm 5'9. I weigh 159 and I've been trying so hard to lose weight for summer. I hang out with a bunch of incredibly skinny people, so I feel like I have no one to talk to about this! I would really like some advice about how to lose weight quickly! Summer is coming and I really want to be able to look good in a bathing suit! So anyone have any advice?

On incident I remamber is when my dad made burgers and fries, I had one and a 1/2 and a spoonful of fries, while James, had 3 burgers, 4 spoons of fries, and 2 slices of cake after (which I didn't want).

Hey everyone I have a tip that helped me lose weight...when your on a diet if one day you cheat or binge on something dont treat it like the end of the diet it was just a slip up remember your goals and dont feel you need to quit the diet from one or two mistakes.

Okay I made up my own diet plan:
I wake up a half hour early in the morning to exercise i walk/run and jump on the tramopline do crunches and squats
Then I have a slim fast drink or bar for breakfast
Then while im in school I take a lunch with me that consists of a sandwich and a bottle of water (do not skip ANY MEALS it makes u more hungry)
When I ge home, if I'm hungry I eat some celery or carrots with low-fat dressing
Then I do whatever school work i need to do and then i either dance or jump on my trampoline
Then I eat whatever my mom makes because she eats very healthy so if ur parents dont eat healthy u can replace whatever they eat with something good for you.
Then itry to hold back from dessert and drink a lot of water.
Exercise: you can either use the trampoline or if u dont have one jumping ropes are awesome...light weights are good... (view more)

Ahh! Did anyone read that article in 'Teen people' I think about that plus sized modle who was *so* pretty and she killed herself? She used to be fat, but then she lost weight and people liked her and she discoverd that they only liked her becuase she looked pretty. Isn't our world a sad one ? :(

Good news everyone! I got a trampoline!! It's so much fun to bounce. My parents made a deal with me though. I have to jump for 15 minutes a day. It gets really tiring, but I turn on the radio or listen to my cd player. Also, now that its a lot warmer outside, I go outside and kick my soccer ball at the stairs everyday. The stairs "pass" the ball back. Speaking of the weather, swimsuit season is coming up. Oh how I hate pulling on a swim suit that shows every detail in your body. Ugh! Well, this year I'm going to this camp and I want to be thinner by then. Hopefully I'll be able to wear a bikini infront of my seriously fit best friend. Crunches, crunches, crunches is all I'll be doing until the last two weeks of July. Proportion wise I'm not doing well, but I've been drinking lots of water. Oh and someone asked about not eating after 7:00. Yeah, well this person in the success board said ... (view more)

I am 5'5 and weighed 169.4 last sept, Now I weigh 131.3, and here is how i Did it...
*I stopped drinking pop and sugar jucies, I only drank orange juice and lots of water.
*I ONLY ate when I was hungry
*I avoided snacks and candy (ate them rarely)
*Ate meals slowly and cut the fatty foods in half in what I would normaly eat (ex. instead of 2 slices of pizza, I ate 1)
Im just saying that if you make a plan and stick with it, you can do it! The best thing to avoid is pop, Remember that a large cola in Mcdolnalds has more fat than a Mig Mac. Also that the average person can gain 15 pounds a year if they drank 1 can a pop everyday.

Hey everyone.. my mother recently lost 45 pounds by joining a weight watching program. I realize that I am overweight too but now that shes smaller than me, she puts me down all the time. Most of my friends are smaller than me and its really embarresing when they can wear the skimpy clothes and everything and I cant. They all say Im very pretty and not fat.. I know Im overweight though.. I'm 5'3 and 155 pounds.
