You should drink lots of water. You don't want to get dehidrated.

Hey Megan I know how you feel. I'm over-weight also and find it hard to shop for clothing too. When I found this website it really helped,and after awhile I relised that all it takes to loosing weight is motivation and will-power. It's not easy at first, but if you really want to lose weightt you need to stick towards a healthy diet and good excercise. Try doing a sport that interest you. Mabey you could try some yoga or pilates, that will increase your flexibilaty. I find if you do somthing you enjoy it helps distract you from all the heavy breathing and stuff. Now I suggjest a nice healthy diet. Vegetables and fruits,and good meat lots of protein. Don't eat alot of junkfood, or high calorie foods. You should try to avoid things with high sodium and sugar. Now i'm not saying you should completly cut out sugar from your diet, just cut back on the heavy eating. I recomend a book cal "Toning for Teens". it's a great book and it really helps. You could also get a weightloss buddy on this site. I fingd that that helps, and don't be afraid to ask friends and family for advise. I'm sure they'll be there with you the whole way. Remember don't give up. Good luck!! PEACE!!!!!
