DONT QUIT!!!! TRUST ME!!! i was a gymnnast and i quit for te ame reasons you want to. Trust ! I regret quitting so much! You loose all your strength skill and flexibiility! Then soon you stop being so fit! IT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF YOURlife!!!!!!!!! Take it from me. Been ther dun tht. And when u regret it and want to go back, you wont be able to.

Dont do it. Dont do it.

You should belive what you want to do. And tell your mom the truth and tell her how it feels.

Me & my BFF used to be friends with this girl who did NOTHING but dance. She had no time for friends, family, and school. She gets VERY mad at her mom when she said she had to quit a few hours of dance. It isn't healthy.

I do rhythmic gymnastics in the summer. I used to do it during the year before I moved. I miss it soo bad! If you have been doing this for a while, and you love it, and you got the money to go everyday, forget everything and go for it. Train everyday, forget about downtime, school, hanging out and go for this. Because I never had the ability to go every day, but according to my teacher, I had talent. You probably have talent too, and if you leave right now, you'll regret it for the rest of your life. You are fortunate your mom is willing to push you to do this, because my mom wasn't particularly interested in me doing it. If you really love the sport, forget about everything else. Because I loved the sport and I had to give it up. And do not, under any circumstances mention this to your trainer. I know from experience that they will rip you into pieces and say: "I've put soo much work into you, you ungrateful swine." I heard it said before to former team members and I completely agree.

That is why I quit soccer, because I had no down time.

I was in gymnastics level 9 two years ago. I was training 5 hours everyday except Sunday. Which was 25 hours a week! I then quit because my doctor told me I had to because of an ankle injury from vault. I think that you should only do gymnastics if that's what gives you complete joy and no guilt, or displeasure. Good luck! I went through the same thing aswell, I kept going with my ankle injury but I started to not like gymnastics and my mom wouldn't let me quit because I had gotten so far! I just sat down and had a talk with her to reason with her that it was too much pressure and then we finally agreed that I could quit! Good luck!
