Before you post a reply saying that you are overweight or that you want to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator
. If the calculator says that you are healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that you are overweight or that you want to lose weight. This offends the kids who really are overweight. Thanks a lot.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 138 lb, Today: 139 lb, Goal: 125 lb - I know that my case isn't horrid, the bmi says that i'm overweight. I have tried to talk to my mother for help but she dismisses it as low self-esteem. And it angers me because she will help my younger brother and older sister get into work out routines and fix their diets, but when i plead for help she is either too drunk or just doesn't care. I had actually lost weight this past year, I used to be 145 lbs. and a little bit shorter. I got down to 132 and I had so much hope, but then it creeped up to 135, and then ballooned to 139. I have been beating myself up all day and have been trying to get it down, but my weight won't budge. I am back in the overweight zone and I want to cry. I have three siblings and a father who love sweets, so I cant ask my mom to stop buying them (she wouldn't do it even if i asked) and asking to put a lock on all junk foods would make my parents question me, then not allow me to fully explain myself because they jump to conclusions. What do I do?
