Melissa do you being luch to school or have salds? my friend is having trouble not eating to much.. She is adicted to hot pockets, and her face is double, she told me she gained 5-10 pounds this summer, 135 or 140
is 140 pounds obese? for 4'10.. I am getting worried about her, I dont want her hurting herself... I want her to be a healthy high school teen girl.. I am worried she could delpoe 2 type deitbes and not know it. that is scareing me, I am 150 pounds, because I ate less, moved around more, and more water, and watched my calores.. any tips I can help her, she is 14 years old. 4'10 I think she is 135 or 140 pounds.
She most likey weighs 140 pounds.. She is strss out a lot... I found ways to limt strss.. Like wrting my books,, and songs! that helps me to get rid of my strss.. Melissa, any tips to help her?
Jessica 16, or at least somebody could me, to get my friend..
I eat lunch at school every other day. One day I go home, the next I bring my own lunch. It works out pretty well for me. I looked at a BMI chart and the shortest height on it was 5 feet tall. If at 5" and 140 lbs you're only considered overweight, so minus a few inches and I think it'll be the same for your friend. Not obese just overweight.
It's honorable and kind of you to want to help your friend. But in the end the only person who can change her is herself. You can't force her to lose weight or change her lifestyle only she can do that. You could talk to her and tell her of your concerns and let her know you are there for her and are willing to help her - but you can't change her. The desire to lose weight must come from within yourself, outside forces do not help. Let her know your worried but let her make her own decisions - it's her body, her health. Not yours. Be a positive example by eating well and exercising and maybe you'll influence her for good!

Today is a horrible day.This week was going so well. I had barely eaten anything all week and things were great. But this morning my boyfriend surprised me with breakfast in bed which consisted basically completely of fatty foods. With cheesecake for dessert. I devoured everything, and I HATE myself for it.
Of course I tried to burn it all and go for jog but now that i've eaten so much again I am hungry constantly and eating. I almost feel like my boyfriend wanted me to eat that much again. I love him, but I don;t want to be fat anymore.
What do I do? (Note: 177 cm, 102 kg is 5'9.7", 224.872 lb.)
If you talk to him honestly about how important it is for you to lose weight. With him on board, it will make a big difference in your success. If he really loves you, he will want to help & not sabotage you. Before I got engaged to my fiance, I had the same talk with him & the next day he joined a gym with me and started eating healthier with me & thanks to his support I now weight 100lbs less than when we had the conversation! Just tell him that you appreciate when he does sweet things like make breakfast in bed but right now you need him to support you with your healthy lifestyle & that it means a lot to you. Next time he surprises you with unhealthy food just say "thanks, but no thanks"....that'll make your point! Maybe in the future if he suprises you with breakfast in bed it'll be a fruit smoothie and rye toast with skim milk! :D (or whatever) good luck!

Doesn't it suck to be overweight? I feel so self contious when i am trying on clothes. This year it was so hard for me to find clothes that i felt bad about myself especially because i have been trying to lose weight.
I do situps everyday and go for a walk and i've only lost 5 pounds in 3 weeks. I have been chubby since like the third grade and i hate it. Especially because i'm trying to lose weight but its not working.My friends and I are always joking about my weight. It doesn't really bug me all of the time but sometimes when i'm feeling really bad about myself i find it really annoying. Also, I just gotta say, don't you just hate it when skinny people say that they're fat? I do! it drives me crazy.
My best friend thinks she's chubby when she can shop pretty much anywhere just as long as she likes what is there. She's like 90 pounds.It frusterates me when she says she's fat.<"span class="bbBold">Living life at 192 pounds is really hard. Especially when it comes to exercising and p.e. I hate running in P.e because i know i need the exercise but that doesn't mean i want everyone to stare at me while i run the mile. I just feel so guilty sometimes after i eat something really sugary because i love food, i just hate being overweight.You know what i mean?P.s i am the same person that posted something before i just needed to fix how much i weigh cuz i weighed myself.
Hey Jessica! You where saying that you hate it when your best friend says she fat. Hae you ever told her you what to lost weight? If she is your best friend she would understand and ease up on comments like that. I had the same problem to all my girl friends are super skinny and was always sayiing they were fat when they are barely over 100lbs. After I told them how I felt about my weight and what I was trying to do. They really don't speak like that anymore infront of me. Hope that helps. If you just want to vent out at all let me know and I'll give you my email adress. =)
P.s. I am a girl if you can't tell by my name. =)

Hi. As u know im 123 lbs. And i am stocky and prettty muscular. I really want. To lose 20 lbs all of my friends are unbelieveably skinny one weighs 56 lbs i feel like a loser none of the boys like me all my friends say i look good but i know they are saying that to be good friends any tips to be skinny in 2 months???we might have to be weighed in middle school and i dont wanna be a fat loser.
If your friend is really short, then that may be a healthy weight for HER, if she's about your height or taller, it's not. And it shouldn't be about being SKINNY it should be about being healthy. You seem to want this for all the wrong reasons. It shouldn't be because you wanna be stick-thin like your friend, or you want boys to like you (at eleven it shouldn't matter that much anyway, you have PLENTY of time to date, don't grow up too fast, because you can't go back). Make this about you, and being healthy. Also, being heavy doesn't make a person a loser. If people are going to pick on you, they most likely will whether you're heavy or not, they will find a flaw and they will pick at that. You just have to learn to toughen up, it's hard, but it's survivable.

so i've just started on this long hard road of losing weight and all ready i'm ready 2 quit. I mean cuz i cant tell any of my friends afraid that they'll laugh at me cuz there all wear a size 9 and under and everyone in my family seems like there doing everything in there power 2 stop me from losing weight i mean i think my problem is that i need sumbody to talk 2. what do ya think?
Is it really worth quitting because of what everyone else thinks. If your friends are laughing about it, than they're not good friends. And this isn't about THEM it's about you. So keep your chin up, and keep working hard. This isn't for them. It's for you. And you deserve to do this for yourself.

no matter what you weigh just be yourself.I weighed 140 and lost 7 bounds from just doing everyday stuff playing basket ball walking and doing crunches.Even if you are unhappy with your weight just remember its your personality that people look for not your weight.so dont thin you have to lose weight to make people like you. do it for yourself and good luck.I know i need it lol.

hey guys, i have a question, just don't think that i'm crazy or anything. until now i was kind of a tomboy, (boyish clothes, no makeup, short hair, etc). but now i decided to seriously change myself, because i really want to get a boyfriend. so, i now wear loads of revealing girly clothes, and look like an average girl. but how would the ppl take it - tomboy that turned into a slut over one summer?do you think my makeover would attract guys or not? i'm very confused and desperate.
you don't have to dress revealing and "slutty" to attract guys, believe me. most guys that are actually genuine are not attracted to something like that. be yourself, if you want to act more girly, thats great. but don't do it just for guys. try nice blouses or shirts from stores like old navy or gap. show off assets that you like about yourself, like eyes or something. good luck, and remember to be yourself. hope i helped, Katherine

my friend ,Sara , got really fat over the summer while she was away at camp , she came home and i was shocked at how much weight she gained , like maybe 35-40 pounds, but shes acting like she didnt notice and she keeps eating like a pig and its like junk food 24/7 and im really worried that she'll become really unhealthy, and her parents asked me because im her best friend to tell her that she needs to stop eating somuch and lose weight , how can i tell her she needs to stop and become healthy again ?
instead why don't you set an example? she pulls out the chips- you pull out carrots and exersize with her! but do it surriptitously- like play an active game opr sport and really get her into it. don't go to her and tell her straight out that she's fat because that could reaqlly hurt her feelings

I lost 8 pounds since easter. I am now 5'4 and 152 pounds. I learned something last night at a dance. I learned that alot of boys don't care if I am overweight. I asked 7 boys to slowdance with me and 5 of them did. Also when I was club dancing a boy came up to me and started dancing with me and doing weird moves. My friend, Vincent and I started laughing and went along with it. Then the boys said "well thanks for letting me dance with you! You guys are great dancers!"

My friend is really, REALLY over weight. I don't know how to help her. It's scaring me. It seems she gained more secnes just yesterday! I don't want to lose her friendship over this. Plese if anyoneknows what to do help me!
I bet that your friend would really apprechiate your help. I know that when I was younger I used to ask my friends for help, unfortunatly they never really could becuase I guess they just didn't know what to do but I think the first thing you need to do it tell her that your concerned about her weight. Don't tell her that shes too fat or that she needs to lose a ton of weight becuase that will hurt her feelings and if shes an emtional eater then that could result in more eating which won't improve the situation. Just say something like "____ (her name) I'm really worried about you. It seems like your gaining alot of weight recently and I don't care about what you look like but I want you to be healthy. If you want me to help you lose some weight then I will" or something similar. Some things you could do to help her is make sure you don't buy any extra junk food when she sleeps over and ...

Some things you could do to help her is make sure you don't buy any extra junk food when she sleeps over and do things that are active, like go on a walk or bike ride. Also don't go places that are focused on eating, like me and my friends meet at a Coffee Shop in town and I always end up dumping sugar and cream into my coffee, so don't meet at an ice cream place or coffee place. And if you get snacks at certain places you go like the movies then try to get something a little on the healthier side like diet pop or unbuttered pop corn. The main reason I'm having problems right now with losing weight is becaue I'm constantly surrounded by people eating, my friends, my family, people at school...if you can help get rid of some of those temptations then she'll have an easier time losing weight. I hope this helps. *ray*ray* (view less)

Hey people!!I am 5 foot and 180 lbs. I am recently attending a place like Curves, it let me lose some weigh. Well here is the problem... All my friends are like 120 and lower and I am like... And we all tell each other everything and I am embarressed to tell them my weight.Instead I lie and tell them 130 and they tell me I am skinny when you should see me. In your opinion should I tell them I am 180?? Thanks Rachael Please reply
I would only tell them if they are your best friends and you can trust them. If they are not, they will most likely tell people.

hi im so fat i try everything and i just gained it all back plus more! I am 5ft1in. and i weigh (too much)...UH i am scareed too say it......a 195lbs. I want to have flat stomach (or at least a little flatter) by June. I NEED HELP! Badly! I need to lose At LEAST 50Lbs. if anybody has lost alot (at least 30lbs) PLS tell we what u did! What kind of exercise that is easy can i do? I want to it for a boy to like me but he doesn't like me because im soooooo Fat
Hey, I don't know if it necessarly that you are fat it may be because you think you are fat and you do not have good self esteem and so the turns guys off if you are really shy and don't put yourself out there. I know this girl and she is quite overweight and she is so pretty and she has hed boyfriends. On the other hand I don't think I am that big. I am 5'7" and 150 pounds and I am average/big for my age. And I have never had a boyfriend before and you shouldn't feel bad about it. Especially because many of the guys that are very young care about that now because lots of them are small themselves. But once you get to be 15 and 16 and 17 guys have matured and they are like 6'0" tall themselve so they would be more comfortable going out with a bigger girl. I hope this helps. There is help in the future. Trust me. Guys are starting to become interested now. I have a good friend who is 6'4" and he is about 200 pounds and I like him so much. And he is comfortable around me. Hope all this helps. Good luck. Dont do it for the boys, do it for you.
