Ht. 5'6", Start: 254.2 lb, Today: 254.2 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I am a 13 year old girl about to enroll in high school and you know all the drama starts there. I have been gaining weight since I came to the US from Hong Kong, China. My problem is that I eat when I am stressed, depressed, and also (this might be unusual) as a way to keep me up at night so I can finish homework... Almost like coffee (although I don't drink it)... Any way I really have been trying to make an effort to stay healthy and get slimmer... in fact I am going to a weight loss camp this summer. Also I LOVE fruits and vegetables so there is no problem there. As well as that ever since my mom left (not for ever just for 4 weeks) I have been loosing weight. my problem is that I'm going to Hawaii after my weight lost camp and I'm scared that I might forget all the good habits there... any suggestions? also if any one knows any good tips on eating less... etc. just tell me! keep in mind I don't do diets, I eat ANYTHING (no really i have traveled and when you travel your not picky), and I WANT TO GET SLIM BY THE TIME I'm 15!... one more thing... this is really important to me.... I am really scared about one thing my doctor told me... if i gain anymore weight I might have to have surgery... thats been giving me nightmares and stress... I really don't want surgery! and as I said before stress makes me eat more... agggh!!!.... HELP ME!

Well at least you love fruit and veggies all you have to do is try one veggies at a time have different ones each day then walk or play basketball or ride bike or what ever activity you like but the most important part about being active is that you have to have it every day if you don't you will lose weight slower but I've seen a scale about being active is that food is just energy and being active is our life how do we go to get food the only way to get food is to walk and how do we get to the restroom or to bed is to walk and running is our thanks because that is what makes us fun and who we are.

You could start working off all that fat by walking or just going outside and doing something. don't get down by the way you look just work hard on getting healthy
