that comment from hi fatty was really men. But if you are interested in losing weightt you could talk to your doctor about gastric bypass surgery.

Reply to "hi fatty" That was really unnecessary... im shocked that someone would put that on a board that is supposed to be for support not criticism

The best way to start losing weight is to set a reasonable goal.
Then, start by cutting down your portion size at meals. If you serve yourself, just take one scoop of pasta less than you normally take. If your mom serves you, or you have tv dinners, cafeteria lunches, etc... then just leave a little bit of each thing on the plate.
In regards to junk food, put a small amount in baggies; then put the baggies in a special cupboard.
Allow yourself one a day.
Also, if you find yourself sneaking food because you don't want your mom to know you are eating (I did that alot), ask yourself why you are sneaking it. If you need to sneak it, do you really need to be eating it?
Good luck!
