don't try to lose weight to fast 2 weeks is not a lot of time. so take it slow.drink lots of water and during school bring lunch and if you dont , dont skip lunch just try to get something not to fatting
if there is any one who needs tips just email me at

Don't think about the total amount of weight you want to lose. Set your goal for 2 to 5 lbs every week. And don't feel bad if one week you don't lose any but that you stayed the same(rather than gaining) and then jump back into it the next week. Remember "A mile is a trial, an inch is a cinch". You can do it, one little step at a time.
And don't let the kids at school get to you. They don't see the courageous and smart person that is on the inside. Because you are smart and brave, your trying to make yourself better!!! :o)
