is it healthy to exercise more than an hour a day? I really want to lose weight, not only to look good,but to feel better about myself & manage my type 1 diabetes better. Any tips on how to lose weight fast?

Hey girl,

It's generally best to exercise for about 45 mins-1 hour each day so you don't overwork yourself.  To lose weight, you gotta do it the old-fashioned way by eating healthy and exercising at least 4 days a week. Good luck! x0x0

Mod Mod Mod!!! the tips for abs are good but will it get rid of the fat on the lower part of your stomach? Is the lower part of your stomach even part of your abs?



Hey girly! Working out, no matter how you do it, will get rid of fat anywhere on your bod! Smile

MOD ok I have two questions 1) for the fourth one on here (shoulder stand). How long do we do it for, or how many times do we do it? 2) Ok, so when I'm standing normally, and I'm wearing a tight shirt, you can see my like my belly bump. but it doesn't look bad because my back curves a lot. But when I bend over it hangs out so much. I just wanna know like what are some really good workouts to lose a little belly. I don't want that much, and I've tried planks, leg lifts, crunches, and sit ups...can you help?


1)I'm sorry, I'm really not sure since I didn't put this article together.  That one's a toughie, though, so I imagine you only need one rep, and for not too long.  You can always work up as it gets easier.

2)Trying moves like the ones above, and doing them regularly, are your best bet.  It's actually very normal to not have a flat stomach when you move or stand different ways.  Take care of your bod, and don't be too hard on yourself!

I want to run and workout, because I know I should, but I don't have the motivation! What will get me motivated to run? *music doesn't work, ive tried...

hey girlie!

first of all, understand why you believe exercise would be good for you. Remind yourself that not only will it help keep you from developing diseases in the future, but it can actually help you look and feel beautiful right now (and have more confidence!).  Also, I would suggest trying a different form of exercise if you don't like running! Why don't you try workout DVDs (yoga, dance, pilates) or try a sport (soccer, frisbee, biking, swimming).  Make exercise something fun for you, and that will encourage you!

mod how much is an average weight at 12 5feet 6inches????
please be honest

Hey girlie -- I don't know, but your doctor will. Nonetheless, keep in mind that your body will fluctuate in size over the next few years, so you should focus on loving it, as is Smile

Mod im aiming to lose weight by mid june please help

Hey girlie -- keep in mind that young bodies fluctuate in weight over the years, so while you may be one weight now, your body will -- naturally --change as time goes on.

MOD, I feel really over weight! I'm 11 and I weigh 140 lbs! I know that's not normal and I want to burn calories and pounds so that my stomach isn't always hanging out. How can I? PLEASE HELP!



Hey girly! I know that you want advice, but you really need to talk to your doctor about something like this. They can tell you whether or not you even need to lose weight, and what you need to do to get to your goal.
