I fractured something in my back a year ago so I usually can't do Ab exercise. I have tried to run but there is something wrong with my knees so I am in alot of pain when running. my parent have no support to help me loose weight as they themselves are pretty overweight.

Theyre not your friends...obviously

Best Answer

Research low impact exercises and exercises that will help your back. Talk to your doctor and your gym teacher about this to get more advice.

Best Answer

Those are not your friends.

I too fractured my spine, and dislocated my knee. You have to gradually improve strength, balance, etc.

Walk...if nothing else, just walk. Tighten your tummy as you do it or other things. Watch your posture.

Cut back on portion sizes.

And repeat after me...If they were my friends, they would accept me regardless of my size. They would be supportive of me and love me..thin or fat. rich or poor. It matters not.

You'll be fine sweetie. You are beautiful. You may have think about those people you called your friends though, because they wouldn'tbe giving you a hard time. They'd want to help and support you.

For exercise, try some yoga. Its relaxing and won't put too much stress on your knees & back.

Best Answer

I don't know what to say about your friends mocking you except they don't really seem like friends if they are treating you that way. Maybe it's time for a new bunch. As for what to do, go to the doctor and discuss it with him and see what recommendations he has for what to eat and what exercises you can do. There is always some kind of exercise a person can do, but sometimes you have to get creative if you have physical limitations.

Best Answer

First of all, you're not fat. Secondly, you should always, always ask your doctor if it's ok before starting any diet/exercise plan.

Anyway, if you want to lose weight, I'll tell you from personal experience one of the BIGGEST traps people wanting to lose weight fall into: eating under 1200 cals a day. When you go under 1200 cals a day, your body thinks you're starving to death, so it crashes your metabolism, and your weight loss grinds to a near-stop cause your body is trying to stay alive till the "famine" is over. You'll have to fight your body tooth-and-nail for every lb lost, it's super frustrating and VERY slow, not to mention very unhealthy!

So, if you want long term sustained weight loss, never, ever starve yourself!

As for exercise, I would recommend just walking :/ It's under-rated, but an hour long walk 3x a week will really speed up your metabolism (again, check with your doc). It's not how hard you work out, it's how *long* you workout that makes the difference.

Go to Overeater's Anonymous (OA) which is a 12-Step Program. You learn how to cope with your emotions and eat healthy. It's a lifestyle. OA has meetings all over town and at different times of the day/evening. It's free. If you do go, go to at least 3 meetings to decide if it's right for you. It'll change your life, Hun.

I do care, I thought I didn't but seriously think about it.

Mocked by FRIENDS.

As my friend would say "Get yo logic and dance a sphere in a square circle ******* woah hit that hoe!" She wouldn't say it like that though but seriously get what I'm saying please.

Best Answer

I was a bit stocky as a young guy, I had almost the same thing. I ate right and I used my arms the most. I lost so much, I was eligible for ROTC

Best Answer

Give up the sugar. Sugary sodas are the enemy. Definitely get in touch with a gym teacher or a health instructor at your school, as Agonystick suggested.

Do these people you call friends know about your problems? Have they got anything helpful to contribute?

Best Answer

If you can manage sticking to a simple diet you will notice a difference. When I feel uncomfortable with my weight I eat brown rice and mixed veggies for a week or so.

Make a plan, schedule out you life for 30 days. Start small and you will get there!! The hardest part is starting...

Best Answer

learn to love your self first and they others will also if running is to much walk but stay active it helps with appetite and try to eat when you are hungry and not bored this is my biggest problem

Best Answer

That's okay, only doing ab exercises would have made you appear fatter anyways (it would have only built muscle behind the fat). Any exercise is good for you, but you need to try working as much as you can on all areas of the body. You don't need to run. Brisk walking is fine too. Do as much as you can, and work up to the harder stuff.

Drink only water and tea

Limit food to meat, fruit, nuts, seeds, and vegetables (NO grains!). Preferably eat organic.

But yeah, ditch the crappy friends. Immediately.

Best Answer

There's only one healthy way to lose weight and that's by exercising in my opinion. Before you can even think about starting a workout plan you have to rehab your injuries so you can exercise safely (spine and knee).

Best Answer

1. Get new friends. You need to surround yourself with supportive people.

2. Figure out how many calories you should be eating a day. Start counting calories and eat healthy.

3. Try yoga. It's a good workout and some styles can be adapted to be very very safe for your back

Good luck! And remember, love your body!
