Having a written goal is a key point in any weight release program.

When we have determined that now is the time to take action with food itself, there are some interesting considerations. One is that during the process of eating it takes about 20 minutes for the signal that you are “full” to go from the mouth to the stomach to the brain. So think about this … if you eat until you are “full” then you have over eaten for 20 minutes. These are some of the new habits to form which really help:

* Concentrate on your food … reading and eating automatically does not help
* Sit down whilst you eat
* Put your eating utensils down between each mouthful
* Chew your food until it is liquid before you swallow.

Meditation process is the most efficient way of forming new habits … without creating stress.

You are 14 years old. You do not want to get caught up in a diet mentality now, or you'll spend the rest of your life trying to get out of that mentality. glance

Plus, you're still growing, most likely. Your body needs plenty of healthy foods and lots of exercise. rainbow

Focus on:
1) Staying active. If your friends want to play video games or meet up for ice cream somewhere or something like that, that's cool sometimes, but try to get them to do fun stuff too like go on a hike or ride your bikes. If you don't have places you can do that around your house, you might have to enlist your family's help...but then, maybe they'll join in, and you'll be helping THEM get healthy too!

2) Exercise. At this age, it's safe to start weight training, but you should work with a trainer for at least a little while to make sure you are using proper form so you don't get hurt.

Google "bodyweight exercise" for stuff you can do at home. 20 minutes of strengthening exercises like that, 3 times a week, is a great start. Don't overdo it.

3) Trying new foods. Ask your family to buy fruits and vegetables you haven't tried before, and to experiment with healthy new recipes.

Please, please don't focus on "needing to lose weight". Focus on being healthy, having lots of energy, being strong. Those are healthy things to focus on, that don't require you to feel like you aren't good enough the way you are. You ARE good enough. And when you make healthy choices, you're you--but cranked up to 11. sunny

There's no quick fix or miracle cure here Halen, the simple answer is eat a healthy and varied diet combined with regular exercise. Stay away from fad diets, or so called miracle weight loss plans. These do not work. You have to change your whole lifestyle permanently. Start by cutting down on junk food. Swap fatty snacks for fresh fruit and vegetables. But don't starve or deny yourself that will only lead to binging. Allow yourself the occasional treat, just be sensible. Always have a proper breakfast and dinner. As for exercise, that can be really easy. If you usually drive or take the bus to school, walk instead. Find something you enjoy doing, maybe swimming or badminton and set yourself small, achievable targets, like maybe taking a half our walk or swim two or three times a week. Don't push yourself or set unattainable goals. You will inevitably fail and end up back where you started and feeling like a failure. Do everything in moderation. And the key is to think "I want to be healthy" not "I want to be thin". I've seen your picture of you in your prom dress, and you look beautiful. Good luck with everything, keep your chin up and you'll be fine.
