I haven't written in a long time. I want to know how to lose 35 pounds. I weigh 130 and i'm 4ft 11in. I feel so embarrassed when i go shopping because i have to buy big pants. And when we run a mile at school i'm pretty fast for my weight but not my height. I feel so stupid. Could someone give me any tips? By the way when are the meetings in the chat rooms? Oh, and I never go swimming in public pools anymore because i'm so embarrassed. Thanx. I would really apprieciate any responses. E-mail me or respond above. My E-mail address is Thanx! :)

Don't ever feel stupid. Smile and know your not always going to be this way. What has worked for me is drinkings lots and lots of ice water, (I keep a bottle with a pop top with me all the time so when I feel like I'm going to grab some food... I drink the water) chewing sugarless gum when I get the munchies and for a 1/2 an hour everyday, I walk, dance or play with my dogs. Something that would get you moving. And smile, you feel like moving when your happy.
Hope this helps :o)
