I just found out something great out today. When ever you feel realy bad about having a couple of cookies,try this trick out. Turn on the tv and go to the food network channel. I know that sounds like torture,but trust me! When you see them making these realy fatty high calories foods,say to your self that you are so awesome because YOU ARNT EATING THAT HORRIBLE FOOD!!! Instead you are eating delicious fruits and veges. So what if you had some cookies, im sure its not as bad as that trible chocolate cheesecake theyre eating!! Well tell me if that trick work for you or if you just think im totaly crazy! Good luck with that wieght loss!!!

Hi, my name is Aaron and Ive been overwieght for 3 years. I was always very skinny and mostly underwieght, untill I moved and I dont know what happened, I am now in the eighth grade 5'5,158 pounds. Ive been looking to put off the wieght I just cant take it for the long haul. The most I've ever lost was 13 pounds. I have lots of freinds and the whole making fun of thing has never really happened because I can joke really good. But I strive to lose the weight so I can finally get this huge thoght out of my head of being huge. From the BMI chart I'm 24 pounds over wieght. I would love to lose the 24 pounds but I just cant take from a long haul. I need a way to lose it with out crawling to the cravings again. By the way Christines success story was VERY uplifting.Thanks for letting me talk.

Hey everybody. I feel so good about myself so far today i only consumed 480 calories. that means my dinner has to be 520 or less. i have about two hours until dinner. i'll eat my dinner at about 5:30 and exercise for an hour at 6:00 to 7:00.

i need a little advice over this way. i often find myself getting bored. when i get bored i want to eat but can't since i'm on a 1000 calorie diet and i only eat two meals a day with a snack in between. i would usually exercise when i get bored but i can't exercise all the time because when i do exercise i tend to get dizzy because i only eat 1000 calories a day. usually when i'm bored there's nothing on tv and i have nothing to read. anyone have any suggestions? they would greatly be appriecated.
also sometimes when i eat my stomach hurts. i don't eat a lot but say if i hungry and it's time for my snack and i eat a granola bar or orange. out of the blue my stomach starts to hurt. anyone else experience this besides me?

Whats the deal with wanting to lose weight by spring break?? Thats incredibly LAME. You guys should want to lose weight whenever its most convenient. Like...what about DURING spring break?!?! You have tons of time to exercise during the day and concentrate on what you should and shouldnt eat- i recommend spending a lot of time out w/ your friends. Most ppls gain weight over spring break- but if you buckle down and take control you can manage a major head start.
Stay STRONG!!!! lotta luvs- jay PEACE

Guys, I was in the same shoes you are in when I was a teen. I was overweight and embarassed and ashamed. I decided to take control of my life and lose the weight for me. I did and have kept the weight off for 6 years. If I scared any of you with my messages earlier, please accept my apology. To j_lynn, I didn't mean to offend you either, I was simply trying to relay my concerns. IF anyone has a problem with me being on this board, let me know, otherwise, please be healthy.
P.S. j_lynn, if I stopped one girl from trying the 500 calorie, then I am glad I checked this site out.

I have had a little weight problem for years. before wither break i was 5,2 and i was 140. I was not so upset with my body untill this winter when my stomach became fat and my legs became lager. After break I was 150. and Now I am 160. i gained 20 pounds in just a cupple of Months. I exercize a little but my problem is my eating. Over winter break that was all I did. Now I see that i am fatter then I have ever been and I need to do something. each week I get on the scale and see the numbers get higher. Now with spring break I cant stop thinking about comeing home weighing 170 or even more. so write back and give me some advice. Amy

I am almost 14 and I hate how I look. I weigh like 165 and am 5'5. I really want to lose the fat! Every time i weigh myself, i just keep getting heavier and heavier! Some people even make fun of me at school and i hate it. I know I should go to a doctor and ask for some kind of diet but I'm not very close with my step-mom or my dad and I can't ask them to take me cause they'll go into this big talk and i hate those! You know? Spring Break is coming up and im going to an N'sync concert. i really want to look good. Also, this summer, i'm going on vacation with my friend. She is really skinney and makes me look even bigger! i hate going around in a bathing suit, looking like this. My goal is to reach 120. I know it will be a lot of work but if anyone has any advice, please respond to this. Thank you so much. I need this.. and for the rest of you, good luck! :o)
