Teen Looking For Some Help

Hi my name is Megan im 17 and i am trying to lose weight. i dont like talking about my weight because i always feel people are judging me by it. like when i meet someone the first thing i think they see is a "fat girl". this has really hurt me when trying to make friends (this year i moved to a new school) i hate eating with other people around because i feel the are watching everything i eat. i weigh 230 lbs. i started gain weight when my parents got divorced. i dont really know how to lose weight because i am afraid to tell anyone im trying...or ask for help. its like i dont want people to know i dont like how i look. i have lost some weight in the past few months but that was because i got really sick one time and didnt eat for 3 days. i just want some help for people who are in the same boat as me. i hope this site will help me with that.

If I eat at least 1000 calories of veggies a day, I find that I have eaten so much food that I am not nearly as temped to eat foods that are high calorie. I eat green giant and birds eye steamables like the apocalypse will be here any time. the fiber in veggies encourages your body to poo too, and the more you poo out, the thinner you'll be.

Water is huge too - it's the lowest calorie thing you can put in your stomach! I'm all about feeling full - even stuffed! but i have to make sure i do it with the right things. I like to flavor mine with mio energy instead of drinking coffee, and mio fit later in the day so i can get to sleep at night. water helps you poo too...

Also, sleep whenever possible. get off the internet, turn off the tv... if you're sleeping, you're not eating, and your body will thank you for all the rest. also, well rested people are less prone to seek something to make them feel more alert ... lots of times, that's food ... so well rested people eat less.

Another thing I did was get a bunch of rubbermaid containers and figure out the calories in a given amount of any food, and label the container. That way, I can have whatever I want, and still keep track of how many calories i'm consuming. I can eat up to 1600 calories without exercising, more if i exercise.

also, go outside. it feels good. when you feel good, you eat less. if you want to kick it up a notch, go for a walk. if you want to learn to run, look for an app that will put you through the C25K plan.

as an aside, i love getting up in the morning and weighing myself - i always weight less than i did the night before. i'm not sure what's going on with that, but it's true for me! so, to stay encouraged, i weigh in the morning, every morning. it keeps my mind where it needs to be to make good decisions that day. i have a rather short term motivational memory. lol

and read this book too

I am in my 20's weight 179 when I was 165 a few months ago. Last year i was at 185 & thats when I opened my eyes & realized I needed to do something about it. I enrolled in Golds Gym with a few friends went down to 162 in about 2 months started eating healthier. I do not like the word DIET matter of fact hate it. I simply change the way I eat & only allow myself to eat fast food or junk food on the weekend like once or twice. I believe clean eating is Key. Extremely simple veggies are a must as well as chicken,turkey & fish. I make life simple such as cereal,yogurt, or oatmeal for breakfast. A soup, salad or sandwich for lunch & either chicken, turkey or fish with a side of veggies on the side. For snacks small portions of fruit or almonds. No more soda or juice only water sometimes tea. Well good luck! I know you can do it. I am slowly but surely getting back to my 5 days a week gym time & clean eating.

there is excellent way to reduce the weight naturally,ie to use the natural diet or food that will provide the same amount of nutrition as required by your body but has less amount of calories that increases the obesity problems.I had seen too many results which this nutritious food product produces the wonderful results in terms of weight loses.For more information you can go through the site or drop message on my mail id.

Hi Megan,

I'm on a my weight loss journey at the moment so completely understand you. I have 2 kids, and have already lost quite a bit of weight, within 2 weeks. Check out this link:

This is the program I am using at the moment and 100% works!! :)

Have you found the diet that works for you yet?

Hi everyone,

my name is Jim, and I would like to take a few mins of your time and present to you a secret that most Pharmaceutical giants or gym corporations want to keep away from you.

You see this is a secret that is actually 110% full proof

- WHY -

Because it doesn't ask you to spend more money yet again on some magical pill that would somehow shake away all that unwanted fat.
Because it is based on logic
Because millions have already succeeded and reached their weight loss goal

Hey just like you, millions including myself; have been tormented with these non-stop quick magical solution scams. Which is why I won't say any more than I already have.
I will let you decide for yourself.

If your tired of having wasted money, time on GYM memberships, home exercise equipment and/or pills/shakes then:

click here:

Listen friend, I said earlier that this program is 110% full proof. And I meant it; this is the only program that will reimburse you no questions asked even after you've tried it after 60 days.

so what d'ya gotta lose huh? Except a couple of unwanted pounds.


Hi Megan,
If you would like to have an e-mail listener and someone who understands, e-mail, I will respond.

Hi I'd like to help u when will u be online

Im 14 and im trying to get fit and lean, i understand what you mean.

Hello Megan

I have a scientifically proven diet for you to try it absolutely worked for me, I have always struggled with my weight but since I started this diet I fill amazing and I only wish to share the diets with others

Walk an hour in the morning and the same at night. Do 2 to 3 sets of sit ups after walking in the morning with both feet flat on the floor. Eat whatever you want. Don't feel shy about it.

I'm not sure if you've ever heard of the Advocare products before or not but they're pretty awesome. All weight loss products work better when you work out too but these are specially designed so that it's not required, just watching what you eat and adding a few extra things into your day. I'm only on day 6 of a 24 day program but I've lost 3 pounds already and it's not a starve yourself diet! I encourage you to check it out for yourself if you're at all curious and do some research. I did my own research before I started and found out that I knew several people that were/had used it and found nothing bad about it online or by word of mouth. Check it out and let me know what you think!<br />
<br />

Hello Megan, i have the answer for you, first i wanna tell you, you should wanna lose weight for your health purposes but as far as people judging you, dont worry about that because most people that make fun of others struggles are people that have an insecurity about themselves.

Hey megan! Im 22 and weigh 125 lbs. When i was 16 i weighed 245. I was so embarrassed abot m weight i decided to go on a diet. Well, not really a diet-i starved myself! I gained 15 lbs within 5 days of starving myself!!! I was devastated. I got help from my school counselor and choose a healthier diet including lots of fruits, vegies, whole-grain breads, and lean or smaller portians of meat. I lost 20 lbs in 2 months after I began my new diet. Then I started walking 30 minutes a day after my healthy dinner, I then lost nearly 25 lbs in the next three weeks! After keeping up with this simple diet for 6 months strait-i decided to weigh myself! 155! WOO! HOO! Ive kep up with this diet and added 15 minutes of jogging daily, and now Im 125, and 21 years old!!:) lets see what my classmates say at our first reunuin!!

I love this!

I had alot of issues losing weight after I had my son and i ate alot not cause i was hungry but because it tastes good and i wound up eating alot and i tried to do alot of stuff so i didn't have to exercise cause i didn't want to but when i started to exercise and cut out soda i noticed a serious difference and i felt better about myself but not only that my body felt better. i had more energy and for once i couldn't wait for summer.

Just curious, how is the weight going?

I lost 20LBs using Herbalife. Since I was young I always had this fatique problem all the way to my adulthood. When I got to college, my problem got worse. Because of stress, I started to get backpain. My doctor gave me pain medication and B12 vitamin shot every month. B13 helped a little, but the pain med gave me ulcer. Thank God Herbalife was there for me. The first three days, I felt there was a significant difference in my energy level. After a week, my ulcer was gone. After two weeks I lost 20 lbs. I've never felt better. It really changed my life. YOU CAN VISIT HERE for MORE INFO!!! IT WILL WORK OUT FOR YOU!!! GOOD LUCK!!!
