Hello, I just found this board and thought I might be able to get a little bit of help/reassurance. I was reading the posts and several times heard about email weight loss buddies and this might be a great idea for me to lose weight. I am 5' 9" and I weigh about 185. I want to get down to around 165-170 before September and would like a buddy to help with support/motivation. My aim sn is RicheyRacing
Chris

I have a problem. I've played football ever since I was 7. I've never had a problem staying in shape. Earlier this year I blew out my knee. Then I was 5'10 and weighed 170 lb. (body fat percentage being 10%) but since I couldn't participate in sports anymore, I started to gain weight. I could tell a difference within just a couple of months. I could see my six pack turning into a big pile of flab. Now, I'm 5'11 and I weigh about 200 lbs. I've gained several inches in my waist. I can even wear my dad's clothes. I can probably play football in the fall, but I don't know if I can get back to where I was before. If anyone has any ideas to help me get back in shape, I'd really appreciate it.

Are you addicted to carbohydrates (ex. breads,cereals,cookies)? If so, I just read an internet article the other day that could help you out. It said that by eating food such as meat, cheese, eggs, and low-carb.veges (ex. broccoli, celery, lettuce)and by drinking A LOT of water, you could lose significant amounts of weight. I personally, always would prefer toast and cereal in the morning over eggs, but this low-fat and high sugar diet, presents a large problem. Most likely, it's the reason for so many people being overweight. Though I'm a definite carb-addict,I've cut down significantly on my carb-intake, and have lost around 5 pounds in the last 4 weeks, bringing me down to 140 lbs. Please don't starve yourself--- that just eliminates muscle first before fat. Do you want to be weaker? Please don't buy diet drinks--- they're gimmicks that only care about your money. In fact, I just... (view more)

I have a small problem that I need some advice on. I'm 5'9" and 142 pounds, which I know is not overweight. I can never wear a two-piece bathing suit though, because my stomach has always been a problem. Every part of my body is thin except my stomach, and it's really aggravating; below my navel there's just like this sudden bulge of fat. Everyday I run @ least a mile, play tennis for an average of 90 minutes, weight lift, and do a series of various stomach crunches. I did just start with the running though, which has been very exhausting. From my excercise, the only thing I can conclude is that I have a large stomach because of my diet. My typical daily eating involves a bowl of cereal (ex. Special K) for breakfast, a turkey sandwhich and an apple for lunch, yogurt or jello for snack, and than a small, healthy dinner. I never eat @ night. WHAT ELSE COULD I DO, OR HOW COULD I EAT DIFFERENTLY, TO MINIMIZE THE FAT ON MY LOWER-STOMACH? I know I'm not just overreacting or imagining this, so please reply; this is so important to me.

IVE BEEN READING THE MESSAGES THAT PEOPLE HAVE LEFT ON HERE. I COULDNT SEEM 2 HELP NOTICE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING 4 QUICK WAYS 2 LOSE WEIGHT. I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE WANT 2 LOSE WEIGHT FAST BUT WHEN U THINK ABOUT IT ITS A BIT RIDICULOUS. U CAN ONLY SAFELY LOSE 1-2LBS A WEEK. THE REST IS WATER OR EVEN MUSCLE. UNLESS U WANT 2 DO YOURSELF DAMAGE THEN I SUGGEST U ALL TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT YOURSELVES AND REALIZE THAT YOU CANNOT LOSE ALL OF YOUR WEIGHT OVERNIGHT.

I have been overweight for a few years now, and i've been trying so hard to lose for the past 6months. I've come to a hard point in this process though. And it would be really helpful to have someone my age to talk to through these rough times. Someone who is going through what i am going through. If you would like to be an email partner with me... i would really appreciate it! Thanks!

My mom says I'm overweight. My friends, even though they don't say it, know I'm overweight. To be nice, they call me 'slender'. I know I am overweight! And all of this is really starting to bother me. I try to eat healthy. I've been cutting down on meat and sugars, and drinking up more on fruit juices and water. But somehow, it's not working. I'm having the most trouble around my thighs. I feel like I'm walking on tree stumps. It also doesn't help that I'm also short. It makes me look even fatter. If anyone knows any good exercises for the thighs and elsewhere, please let me know. I really need help!
