I agree with Renee. What's the worst that can lose the weight you want? Make it a good experience, not a bad. Who knows, you may love it there and go back next year too. Good luck!

I know this may sound stupid, but I wish I could attend a fat camp. You want to know why? I'll tell you. Diets never seem to work for me, mainly because i'm surrounded by people eating or a kitchen full of mostly unhealthy foods. If I were to go to a fat camp, I could easily lose the weight. There are no temptations at a fat camp. If you seriously want to lose weight, attend this camp and let them show you how to live healthier.

Losing 20 pounds in 2 weeks is totally unhealthy. Just cut the junk, exercise and eat right! July 4th is in 2 weeks and it is only safe to lose about 2-3 pounds every week. So, if we multiply 2*3 = 6 pounds lost or 2*4 = 8 pounds lost during that time period. That is the only really safe amount of weight you can lose. Maybe you should explain this to your parents and ask them to extend it to August 4th or something. Good luck!

Hon, don't worry, even if you do go though they will only help you, but just try to lay off the sweets and soda's. Mostly the soda's. Try drinking juices and water. Eat fruit and healthy stuff. Also when you get a craving for chips or a snack, as i do, just ignore it and instead of eatting go and play a card game or an online game instead, it works. You can also try some cardiovascular stuff.

To lose weight you will have to say goodbye to junk food anyway so you might as well go to the camp and have fun doing it

DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HEALTHY FOODS? Actually if you gave healthy foods a chance you will realize how much better you'll feel after a meal. I suggest you go to the camp so maybe you'll have a better attitude towards healthy food. And by the weigh it's impossible to lose 20 lbs. in a healthy way b4 July 4. JUST GO TO THE CAMP!

Sorry, but July 4th is not a lot of time. Maybe this camp will be for the best. A healthy diet is important to losing weight and living a good life.
