I'm about 5' 2" and about 135lb. I cannot lose weight at all. I've been trying to eat healther lately(TRYING) but nothing is working. I go to the gym at least 3 times a week(My sister who is the only on who take me doesn't always have time) and in between I fit in some pullups and situps. I really care about image and how people think of me.
Does anyone ave ideas of other things I can do?(I want to lose fat and gain muscle)

Active User, very eHealthy
Give it time hun.
The weight won't fly off right away, it takes time in the beginning.
Right now, you could be gaining muscle from going to the gym and the exercises you do in between your day.
Muscle burns fat. The more muscle you build, the more fat you lose.

Give it time, and be patient.
Just keep doing what your doing, eating healthy drinking plenty of water and exercising.
The weight will come off.
Just don't stress about it too much.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you swimming and modified atkin diet. Try herbal products like green tea extract and ginger.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
