hey, listen if u weighed 110lbs I wouldn't go out with u in the first place, I am 5'2 and I weigh 130 and I am not fat, u can see my stomach muscles so just because some chart might say ur over weight doesn't mean u are, honestly I think that its a bunch of bs when u have to fill out ur height and weight to detemind where u are suppose to be, the girl who wrote in to u suggested that u lift weights and cut ur portions in half, I think that is the best thing to do, because guys build muscle tissue fast so u should be able to tell a difference pretty quickly, but hey don't try to change for some chick, do it for urself because it will make u happy, but I wish u the best of luck with getting "toned" and with the girl. if ya want some weight lifting suggestions u can e-mail me at

First of all, it's pretty much impossible to lose about 60 pounds in a month. I would suggest raising your goal a bit. You have no idea how skinny you would be if you lost that much weight. And, no matter what you think, in the end, girls like guys that have some muscle and fat (it helps when you hug a guy that he's not skinnier than the girl and he a bit bigger). So, my advice for you is to start weight lifting. You might not lose too much weight, but you will definately lose inches and rolls, and plus look a lot more manly. You can also cut in half what you eat, like don't take seconds, skip the junk food and grab an apple, and when you feel bored, go out and play basketball or something. I hope this has helped you, and good luck! P.S. It doesn't matter to most girls if a guy is a little over weight, and if it matters that much to them, they probably won't like you so you have no reason to try to go out with them :)
