Ht. 5'8", Start: 172 lb, Today: 172 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 145 lb - I hate being fat! When we do the warm-ups during pe, I can't even do ten sit-ups or ten push-ups! I can't even do ONE pull-up, that's how heavy I am. The problem is, I eat and I don't stop eating. If my parents aren't home, I'll eat like half of our food, just out of boredom. I'm almost 200 pounds and I'm barely in sixth grade. Help!

I have the same excact problem and it sucks but try to cut out some of the foods. For me it was chips every day I would eat them and I gained so much weight from it then my mom stopped me and it was really hard on me then eventually I got used to it and lost a lil bit of weight. And trust me I'm not that type of person so I believe if I can do it you can do it too. So remember cut out lil snacks you eat every day and try doing the 7-minute workouts from Meredith Shirk on you tube they are really simple and easy exercises. I really hope this helps!

Start by counting your calories and tracking what foods u are eating everyday for a week. Be honest, this is important. Average the number (add all the calories from the week together then divide by 7). This is how many calories u are consuming on an average day. Now subtract 500 from this number, this new number is how many calories u r going to be eating for the next month, NO CHEAT DAYS. Also for the next month add in some light exercise like walking 2-4km/day 5 days a week (1-2 miles).
Once u do that, reply to this reply and I'll help u on what to do next.
Remeber, progress will be slow but that's ok
