I have recntly started working out three timees a week, but I read somewhere that working out with weights before you are about 16 will stunt your growth. Is this true? I've never heard this before.

I just wanted to remind you guys that if your parents can spare the money, you have the option of seeing a dietician or a nutritionist. They can help you make a healthy eating plan and get you started in the right direction. I want to be a dietician because of the positive expirience i have had with working with and helping people, including myself, becoming healthier. I want you guys to know that you have to be hopeful, or else you have nothing to live for. Losing weight is a major investment in your body, and from personally expirience, very worth while. If anyone would like to know how i lost my 25 lbs, please reply to this and i will help you the best i can. Good luck!

When you stop eating your body thinks you are out in the desert or the wilderness, with no food, and that it'll be a long while before you eat again, so it stores food to ration off later. That means lots of the fats and sugars you eat get stored. If you eat frequently, even if its just an apple or an orange you could be doing so much more for your body. Starving yourself ruins your concentration, and with school starting you'd want to get into a healthy eating plan. It takes 21 consequetive days to break a habit or start another, so why dont you make an effort to set aside half a day if possible or just a few times a week, before school or after, to do some exercise. Everyone can lose weight, if it was so easy we'd all look like supermodels, im not going to say it'll be easy, but everyone can do it. If you learn to accept yourself then you'll be twice as successful, trust me.

I just wanted to mention that before i was cutting out alot of calories (i ate 1200 a day which i was told was as low as i should go) but i also heard if you cut out to many (like lower then 1600) your body goes into semi-starvation mode and it can make you emotionally unstable and even cause you to gain more weight because your metabolism slows down soooo much so i just wanted to say that you should watch your calorie intake not to much not to little :)

OK well heres my story, I had lost 17 lbs as of before christmas but of course holidays mean food and that means eating everything within reach hehe so i gain back like 3 lbs but i am working on it. On to the rest of my story...I am switching schools next term...my last day is tomorrow and then after exams i will start at my new school. I already have friends there but i want to make a good impression on their friends (make sense?) so i am going to try to lose as much as i can in 2 weeks! (by the way i am 12 lbs away from my goal weight)

Hey ya'll. I've posted before and this time I'm asking for a few tips and/or advice. I've completley changed my eating styles. I always have breakfast, no matter what. I used to rarely have it, but now I have to. I changed my lunch from a slice of pizza, fries, and chocolate milk to a half a turkey sandwhich and skim milk. For a snack, I try to kill of all cravings and go bananas or other fruit, and dinner's the same except for smaller portions. I haven't put as much commitment into it as I can. But I'm going to start this week. I want to excersize more, but I really can't. :( My parents won't let me join a gym or buy a treadmill. I don't have so much time on my hands with homework and work around the house. And it's cold and icy out so I'm scared to go running with the little time I have. Anyone have any tips for me to squeeze some excersize into my diet?
