When I read the URL of this webpage, I laughed so much. Blubberbuster?? How mean is that!! Hehe . . . anyway, this bulletin board is nice. It's good how you're all helping each other. I'm 5 ft 2 and 145 lb, which is pretty depressing, but I don't want to kill myself or anything . . . I still love myself and think I'm cool a lot, it's just, going to the mall, and seeing all the small sizes, you know . . . well, if you want to get your head away from thinking about being "fat" try other things - like writing, or collecting, or theater, or a really good thing - ART. I love art and am pretty good =) and it really makes you feel better about yourself. So, I'm OK with myself, but I'm noticing now that yes, I am "at risk for being overweight" as blubberbuster's calculator says =) so, I'd like to change that. I don't eat much meat . . . no red meat, and that helps. Just chicken + tuna. Today I've only eaten like 600 calories at the most so far, which is cool. I think my problem is mainly not excersing enough. But I am always doing things after school until about 7 and am so busy!! If someone has any help for quicker excersises, that'd be great. Don't be sad everyone . . . smile =)

hey i think that since u dont have time in the evening to work out,i suggest getting up in the morning for ur workout. ur body burns more calories in the morning anyways and if u eat breakfast right when ur done,it speeds up your metabolism!good luck!

Well Liz there are really no really quick exercises. I recommend that you try walking for 10-15 mins everyday and every month or so increase the time you walk by a few mins. Also you dont want to lose more that 2 lbs a week because thats unhealthy. That may help you. Oh and another thing. The BMI calculator on this site is somewhat off so you might want to check your BMI on another site. Good luck on your weight loss!!!! Keep us informed.
