Hey everybody! You have a British visitor here! Anyway, I'm about 11 stones (I'm not sure what that is in pounds, if u know, please tell me!!) I'm not really overweight but I hate the fact that I'm larger than all of my friends. I just pick at food all day. If I'm bored, I'll just go see what's in the kitchen and if there's something there, I'll eat it, then go back for more. I carry on this way til I'm not hungry and then have to eat dinner so my mum doesn't realise what I've been doing!! I'm losing the fight as I have no willpower-all I want to loose are a few ponds!Please help of write back either here or e-mailme at: Cheeeeers!!!

Hey! next time your bored and you want to eat 1)have a glass of ice cubes or water or 2) Go for a walk! I heard that excercising makes you less hungry and if you don't like excercising, tell youself it's NOT excercising, it's just a little walk! 3)If there's any dogs in you're neighborhood offer to walk them for money.The dog gets a walk, you get money and excercise, I mean a harmless walk that can make you lose weight AND have fun!
