Hi. I'm not a parent but I am a child who is overweight. I was a little skinny until I was around 8 or 9 and I gained a bit of weight and I don't know what happened. I am now trying to lose about 20-30 pounds because I am 4 feet and 10 inches (147.5 cm) and I last weighed 128 pounds and I was weighed last month. I haven't lost any weight that I can see but I also haven't done much about it. I am looking for some diets to try that aren't very extreme and or some exercises I can do. What are somethings that worked for your children? Weight is something I feel is a scary topic and I want to feel good about myself again. I want my life back and I think my health should be coming first. Thanks for listening and thank you for helping.

I am also a child, but technically you do NOT need to lose weight.
