Reply from mitzi, Age 49 - 08/17/09 - IP#: 173.24.190.xxx Hi John! I am so hoping someone has offered you some tips for weight loss by now. I am in hopes maybe you need a friend and I am thinking of my own son who is also 15 and weighs a bit over 500 at this date. His life is so miserable, he dont want to go to school and I dont know much else to do. Ive had him to counseling all last year and he lost 58 lbs before school was out.. Now over the summer it has come back. We will be trying again starting the next day or 2 but maybe if you and he buddied up and done it together, it would work better. If you're interested leave another reply and I'll let my son know.

You dont? then borrow one from somebody!!! ; - ) ( ps i let food get me in big trouble dont get that obsessed)
Reply from Michelle, Age 14 - 08/17/02 - IP#: 63.168.31.xxx 1)Get out and make some friends, they will keep you busy and you won't notice that you're not eating. 2)Try to exercise for about 10 minutes everyday, working your way up to 45 minutes. 3)Cut your portions in half. 4)Start drinking a lot of water, and ween yourself off of pop and high calorie drinks. If you can't keep track of how much water you drink, fill up a gallon milk jug with water every morning and make sure you drink all of it by the end of the day.
I hope I could help. I believe in you, you can do it and make your life better, good luck!
