Hey, I'm 15 and I'm 5'8 tall and 202 lbs....I want to be a healthy 160 lbs before I start worry about looks, cause I'm sick of being constantly tired and unhealthy.
I've started cutting pop out, cold turkey, and am trying to cut down on proportions in meals. I'm currently doing toning for my arms and legs so the muscles will be build and I can burn fat faster....
I'll be getting a a part time job soon,and I was wondering if there were any suggestions of a type of job that would help me burn calories and exercise?
By the way, I'd like a partner in losing weight....any takers? E-mail me at Minkychan@hotmail.com

I can't say that i'm overweight, because I'm not, but I have this belly that annoys me now and then. I heard that excercising helps, but I have NO idea what to do! I am downright lousy in gym class, and I get tired so easily when active, that I CAN'T tone myself that way! Could you please tell me what can be done?

I know all you guys that are new here are probably feeling bad about yourself right now and thinking "how am i ever going to do this" but you just have to have some hope. If it gives you any hope that you can do it, this will probably help: When i can to this site in December 2000, i had already made up my mind that i was too heavy and i really wanted to lose weight. I was 170lbs-175lbs, 5foot 1inch, and i was about to wear a size 20 womens. I knew i was desperate, but i didn't need to do anything desperate, i found out. I found people on this sight that were willing to help and i really needed that. I couldn't do it on my own. So i started following some of the tips that everybody was giving and all the motivation and support, and i started in good faith that i could do it. I started with cutting calories. I found out that i was eating about 2500 calories a day and sitting around doing ... (view more)

Here a few of m favourite tips:-* only drink ice water ( ever water straight from the fridge or water with ice init) cos it takes bout 40 calories for the body to remain the same temperature after drinking it. n water has no calories in it at all!* don't keep sweets in ur house. if its there, chances r u'll eat it* believe in urself. any diet in the world will not work if u dont cos in the end, its all down to u* imagine ur self skinny everytime ur goin through a bad patch where u really want a chocolate or cant be bothered to exercise.* exercise every week. 3x is a minimum and everyday is brilliant. at least for 1/2 that is* only do exercise u enjoy. i love netball,swimming,gymratting,aeorbics and dancing but my mate hates them all! if u dont like it,dont do it its simple* u R allowed chocolate. don't forbid urself to eat ur favourite food or ur resolves crumble faster than a elephant...

I'm about 5'8'' and weigh around 160lbs I have finally decided to admit that I really need to loose weight and do something about it. I'm gonna try to eat a healthy diet and get to the gym about 4 times a week. I need some motivation to get started though, and mabey some tips that have worked for other people. unfortunatly i get really anxious and have a hard time waiting for results with out getting mad and frustrated. I'm not huge or anything, I am very muscular already, but I haev a lot of fat on me. So anything that can get me going and keep me going is gonna be very helpful. I wanna get down to about 125-130 pounds hopefully by June or July thanks

Hi everbody. Well, I have a lot of tips, but I have one that I will tell everyone is the most important. WATER!!!!!!!!!!! You are made up of water and you need it survive. If you don't drink enough water it could lead to headaches, stomachaches, dehydration, and feeling all around icky. That's not the only reason I brought it up. Water is a great dieting tool. If you drink a big glass of water 10 minutes before you eat, it will fill you up and help you eat less. It will also balance out the food so you won't be so bloated after a large dinner because the water will digest fast. In other words, it will take up space you would cram with extra food. Water is also the best replacement for pop and juice containing 0 calories! It also cleans out toxins in your body such as caffine which can drag you down. I highly recomend drinking at least 5 glasses of water a day. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel. Good luck to all of you!
