Ht. 5'4", Start: 150 lb, Today: 143 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 90 lb - MY TIPS
-Stock your schoolbag with healthy snacks, like baby carrots, healthy crackers, etc. in ZipLocs. Then when you have the urge to buy something at the vending machiens, pull out your healthy snacks. (Same with lunch.)
-Drink a lot of water. Add: lemon/lime, stevia (a low-cal natural sweetener), mint, etc.
-Eat veggies before every meal, cuz they'll fill you up a lot.
-Try to stay away from places where people are eating high-cal, unhealthy food.
-Don't eat too much dairy! There's a lot of fat.
-Don't eat, like, nothing for b-fast and lunch, because then you'll binge in the afternoon.
I'm really happy! My brother had some friends over, and there were like a MILLION donuts in our kitchen, but I didn't eat ANY. Yay! I'm going to make myself an egg sandwhich (one scrambled egg on whole wheat toast), and try to get some exercise.

Yeah, Sara- that's true. However, the reason you are overweight is almost 100 percent because you eat TOO many calories, and TOO much fat (try low-fat products, like skim milk.)
