I posted this earlier as a reply, but I wanted everyone to see it because I think it is an important message.
Take it from me, guys...I was an overweight teen but I am 25 now and healthy. Please listen to educated adults and not other kids who are also trying to lose weight (for the record, l-o-o-s-e spells loose, the opposite of tight...l-o-s-e spells lose, as in lose weight). Anyway, read these tips and good luck losing weight. 1) You cannot gain calories...you gain fat. Calories are made up of the energy in food and burning calories refers to the amount of energy you use when losing the fat. 2) Bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice should be kept to a minimum, because they are high in carbs, which is a form of sugar, which eventually turns into fat if it is not burned off as energy. Whole wheat bread is good in moderation. 3) Skipping meals can slow down your metabolism, and losing... (view more)

I have two friends who are both VERY overweight. Neither of them way more than 180, but they are both short. They both get made fun of, espicially one of them. The thing of it is, is that I know that they are not trying to loose because they are both getting bigger!
And myself? Well, I have come to not even realize when I am full and don't need anymore food. :-(

I can tell you the one reason most of you are here. No matter what you may think, this is true. You are here because the fashion or style excepted right now is to be waft like and the "I'll blow in the wind because I'm so skinny" look. It's not good, and all your trying to do is fulfill an unrealistic goal set by the media which every girl (and most guys) think is the only way to happiness. WRONG!!!! Styles change. I don't want to lecture you, but this a brief history of what was considered for women the "perfect" body. In the paintings you see in the Renisance, you can see women who have a full figure, but are not really fat. By today's standards they would be considered obese with about a 36 inch waist. Then, later in history, women who were "large and round with plump bodies" were considered healthy and mostly wanted. These women weighed on the average of 200-250 pounds and considered...

Recently I posted a message. Michelle replied and now I am going to take her advice. I don't wanna loose weight for me. The reason why I wanna loose weightis I want to be excepted at my school and community. I figured if I at least lost 30 pounds I wouldn't look so bad but now I don't know. I mean I really wanna loose weight but why should I change the way God made me just so someone else will like me. I am really confused now. HELP!!!!! PLEASE!!!! NO ONE ELSE LISTENS!!!!!

I know a great way to loose those extra pounds. First set a goal, you may have read this alot but this is VERY important. Second, you stop eating greasy foods and pop. Instead try carrots and light dip. One of the most important steps is exercise. You CANNOT loose wait by just dieting. Try 10 situps 3 times a day to start then start doing more gradually, so you don't strain yourself. Go for a 30 minute walk a day, if you have a dog then you could take him/her along. For those of you who just cannot stop craving food (like me) I have some great tips, try strong toothpaste. None of that kiddy stuff. I use arm and hammer. Strong mouthwash help aslo. Gum works for some but not all people, so stick with mouthwash. Whenever you think 'What's the point of this? Its going to take forever and I don't think it will work' just take a look at yourself and think of being skinnier. NEVER NEVER !!NEVER!! starve yourself! Good Luck and remember, you are doing this for yourself ONLY for yourself!
