MOD MOD MOD My parents think I'm tiny and skinny but I'm not. to be honest I think it's my posture that makes me look thinner, but I tried that "look-in-the-mirror-and-pick-out-your-best-bit" thing but it's made me really annoyed at my thighs and my belly. there's fat there and no where else on my body, how can I get rid of that? I'm prepared to diet and exercise-I'll do anything. But I can't make it massively obvious or my parents will think I'm trying to go annorexic (I'm not-I'm really not) thanks MOD!


Hey girl do you exercise? Start exercising and it should help alot! Also try to stay away from drinking and eating junk food snacks like doritos! But also remember sometimes we get annoyed and obsessed with parts we think are 'fat' but are totally not!!

I really want to go running more, but my neighborhood is absolutly terrible for it. In the two mile radius from my house is just a bunch of busy streets, driveways, hobos, gas stations, and cars. I have tried running around my neighborhood, but I spend half the time waiting for cars and I just feel super uncomfertable with all the hobos and other people watching. It seems like the only way for me to run is to get on my bike and ride three miles to some bikepath or something. What can I do?


One of the most important things you have to think about when you go running is where you'll be running and whether or not it will be safe. Where you live doesn't sound like the best place to run. Maybe you could go to a bikepath or park (if you think riding your bike there would be safe) - you could bring a friend. Or, if one of your friends lives in an area that's a better running environment, you could run with her at her house. You could also try doing exercises and things at home when you can or running up and down your stairs, if you have stairs that aren't too steep that would work for that kind of thing. Maybe you could talk to your parents about getting a family gym membership. Good luck!

I need good workout tips to strengthen my core any tips?Smile


I would do a routine that works out different parts of your body: running, weight lifting, and maybe sports if you have friends to play sports with. Keep a workout schedule and write down when you work out to be sure you stick to your plan!

I want an exercise that will make my arms stronger! I would really appreciate it if you answered back! thanks MODS!Smile


Hey girl, I recommend bicep curls and push-ups...they don't work all of the muscles in your arms but they do work the 2 most noticeable ones.  For more, get to a gym or find some dumbbells (or even heavy books!) to lift.  Experiment with ways to work certain muscles by noticing what part of your arm hurts when you lift them.  Try to work as many muscles as possible.

I really want to get thinner but I live in the UAE and it;s extremely hot I can't go to the Grocery Store. I need something to do at home, and preferably in my room. i don't care how much time it takes. By the way, about the food, your articles rock! Thanks for your help!!


Hey girl, maybe you could try out some exercises at home! Here's some you could try: Also check out others on the Health/Fitness section. Also eat healthy foods from what you have at home!
