I’m 13 and I weigh like 153 lbs. I really want to lose some weight. My mom used to be over weight, too but she’s being kayaking a lot and lost like tons of weight. So she’s like 2 sizes smaller than me. I have a huge appetite and that’s mostly my problem. HELP?!

Answer #1

How tall are you?

Answer #2

Answer #3

hmm your 5,5? and 153.. well take from personal experience. Ill use myself I use to weigh 230 and Im 5,7 but no body could tell!! people though I weighed 180! far from the truth, now I weigh 195 and still going.

There’s a website you can go on to plan your daily meal plan I signed up for that, your suppose to eat 2,000 calories a day, because 3,000 = 1 pound. (well mostly for the people who have a hard time gaining) I eat a piece of chocolate and I mainline 5 pnds so Im not that lucky.

search on google or yahoo and type in something like “online pyramid food planner” or something, I would give you the straight link but Im typing this whole thing from my phone :P you’ll know you found he right website when it blue I think and has a pyramid somewhere on the page. on the website you make your own meal plan, control calories you intake

Example: You start with planning your morning meal. Breakfast Cereal - Frosted flakes - 130 calories per serving (without milk) ( you decided to add milk to it) 180 calories per serving If you feel like that is enough for you that’s your morning food (You can also pick the days you schedule your meals you can make a weeks calendar on the website of food you can eat during the course of the week instead of stressing out what your going to consume that day just refer to your online meal plan and you’ll know!) you can press save! or yu can add more. They have a bar to tell you If you put enough food, too much, or not enough.

the whole plan consist of breakfast (wait an hour)
snack (1 hr) lunch (1 hr) snack (1hr) Dinner (1hr)
and a healthy snack afterwards

I would suggest you start eating breakfast by 11 of not 10 AM (weekends)

(weekdays) just go with the school day keep snacks in your purse so when your hr is up you can consume in class. to b more precise with your eating habit on that day print out a copy of the eating schedule yu made that day or write it down If you lack ink

example: cereal (8 am)

snack (10 am)

lunch - when you go to lunch (depends when you have lunch) snack - (12:30)

dinner - (when you get home)

excercise was a big part of my weight lost next to eating the right time and not stuffing my self (like I ue to and that was sort of hart give up… trust me) I rode my bike on nice days, did excercise tapes, treadmill. ect.

but take it slow If you excercise fr 20 mins 1st then stick with that For a couple weeks and keep going up 5 or 10 :)

I excercise for 83 mins now. but its not rigorous hard excercising army training stuff. just stuff that will me smell like sock when Im done. lawl

(excercise at night like before you go to bed, because you won’t b tempted to eat excercising to early may give you urges to eat things you shouldnt during the course of the day and you’ll feel bad afterwards I mean really bad … I should know and plus its fact after you excercise and go to sleep your body still loosing pounds ;D)

sincerely SexyPancake :)

just don’t eat after 6 you gain more weight after 6 pm. (I should know)

How to LOSE weight?

First, determine from the information below, what your weight should be. Then set yourself goals of a week, 2 weeks, a month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. As you see yourself meeting your goals it becomes easier. Remember, you didn’t gain your weight overnight so don’t expect to lose if overnight. Plus, weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off than weight lost in a hurry.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

BMI Classification

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 to 24.99 Normal Weight
25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity

Check out your BMI at the bmi calculator site below to see where you stand.

bmi calculator:


If you need conversion info, 1 kg = 2.2 pounds and 2.54 cm = 1 inch (12 inches = 1 foot)

Info if you are trying to LOSE weight:


“How can I Lose 1 pound of body weight per week?”

One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of weight per week, you need to eat 500 calories/day LESS than you burn.

But it’s not a good idea to lose weight simply by cutting calories. As well as decreasing calories you should increase your daily physical exercise. This helps to burn calories and build more lean tissue which in turn burns more calories.

“What should a minimum calorie intake be?”

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

Another thing that helps to lose weight is to always eat a good breakfast. That helps to jump start your metabolism which helps start burning calories. Also, try to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day. One before every meal (except breakfast) and before all snacks. That helps curb your appetite which helps reduce caloric intake.
