MOD MOD MOD MOD Ok so even though I'm very athletic and stuff I feel really fat. I'm trying to control my monster sweet tooth and diet but its not really working. My family has a history of being overweight and it scares me to think I could become overweight... So my question is should I keep trying to diet or should I just be happy with my body as it is?


Hey girl, you should always be happy with the way you are! But, if you want to stay healthy and ate a healthy weight the best thing to do is talk to your doctor. Exercise and eat healthy by following the tips in our Health & Fitness section and you should be set to go Smile I know what you're going through, and I worry about the same thing with my family but if you set your mind to it you should be okay. I hope this helps!

I'm 11 years old, 4'11 and weigh 107 pounds!!! I know I'm over weight but sometimes I think it's because I go home for luch so if I need an extra snack, well I have a bunch! I am the fattest in the class! everyone is very skinny! I can't run! I'm always last in track! I feel like poo. I just want to be skinny! Is that weird? Is there anyway that I could be skinnier/healthier? Thanks

Hey girl, ok, let me start by saying you aren't overweight according to your BMI, which is on the lower end of the normal range for healthy weight. What you are lacking in, however, is confidence! I think in terms of raising your confidence,  you could try jogging at home (maybe every other day) to practice your times. That way you'll get your endurance up. Don't compare your bod to others and know you're fine the way you are. Believe me when I say everyone's insecure. xoxo

is it weird to be 13 and have never had a boyfriend before?

Not weird at all, girl! Everyone gets their first BF at different ages - some had a kiddie "relationship" in Kindergarten and some people will wait til they're 16 or 18. Just be patient Smile

Hey Girlie, The best thing to do is to eat a well balanced diet and also eat lots of veggies.

mod mod mod sorry to bother you mod. but i'm 15 years old, 5 foot 5 inches, and 225 lbs, making my bmi 37.5 (a dash from being morbidly obese). i work out 3 times a week, and i can definitely keep up with all of the other girls. i know i'm not unhealthy, but for some reason i have always been at least 100 lbs ahead of everyone else. i'm actually really athletic, and play a lot of sports, so is this just how i am, or is there something seriously wrong with me? thanks for your help.



Hey girly girl! I totally feel where you're coming from. I've always struggled with my weight too. No matter how much you work out though, it really all comes down to your diet, and what you're eating. And, if you're eating really well and working out, and still can't lose weight, then I'd talk to a doc. In that case, it's possible that you may have a thryoid condition (which makes your metabalism low).

@livver, you're not fat! I'm 13 and 101 pounds. I hear all the time that I'm a very healthy weight for my age, and a 3 pound difference isn't much AT ALL. You're perfectly fine!

MOD!!!! i have a problem.... im 13, i weigh 104 pounds, and i think im fat. i dont want to tell anybody, but im limiting what i eat on weekdays, and bingeing on weekends. i need help!! can you please help me, or have advice for me to get help?? xoxo ♫ livvr!♫

Hey girlie. First off, you are beautiful! Do not hurt your body by limiting what you eat and/or binging. Talk to a trusted parent/guardian, teacher, or guidance counselor. Also, check out this hotline link:!2.aspx

mod mod
few questions:
1. I don't like to cook in the morning and i can't eat yogurt whats a good breakfast? 2. are almonds a healthy snack? 3. Is skateboarding a workout?

Hey chica. There's all kinds of good breakfast foods. Fruit is always a healthy choice. You can do cereal (some kinds are better for you than others) or you can try oatmeal (it's quick to make in the microwave, and it's tasty). Almonds are pretty good for you because they are classified as a type of nut. And, skateboarding can become a cardio workout if you run and jump on the board for a long period of time!

Hi! I always manage to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch, but when I get home from school and during the evening my healthy habits always fall apart. Is there anything I can do to stop being so hungry in the evening? Thanks!

Hey girlie. It's important to eat dinner! Just try eating veggies and drinking water, too. Don't skip meals but tell your mom that you want to eat healthier for dinner. You can do it!

Another fun fitness tip!
Try getting some sort of dance game! I have Just Dance and Michael Jackson the Experience for the Wii and it's really so much fun that it doesn't seem like a workout! But if you're really getting your whole body into the moves(like I always do), it's great!
