Weight depression

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello, 

I've been depressed lately with my weight..  I'm 13 years old and I have chunk at my stomach but more likely intestines..  I really need to loose it in 3 days.  Is there anything I can do fast??  I weigh about 118 - 120.  I'm not sure because last time I checked I was 104.  But that was a year ago..  I know I have been doing like 20 jumping jacks.  Some crunches some leg raises.  But today looks like I've gained eeight?  I don't understand..  I eat less everyday plus exercise so this is confusing..  And I'm trying my hardest..  Help?

    Hi I think you are far too young to be trying to diet!   At your age you need good nutrition and to be healthy and that is the most important thing.  Please don't try and cut back on food without speaking to a parent,  another family member or a trusted teacher.   You don't sound overweight to me but don't forget at your age your body is changing all the time and it is best to wait a few years and you might find you will level out.   

    I am old too - 60 -  and I get very concerned at how body conscious young people (especially girls)  can be and the last thing you need to be doing is giving yourself an eating disorder.  Easy to do but difficult to overcome.   So seek out an adult you can trust and discuss this with them please.  x

      Very good comment Hypercat.

      Delilah.. please take note... wisdom unfortunately only comes

      With hindsight.. I had a severe eating disorder for very many

      Years... please as Hypercat suggested talk to an adult that you

      Trust, hopefully your mum or your GP... you are a young lady.

      ( and I am sure a beautiful one ) your body is changing every single day... if you feel that you really must slim then please at the least have a word with your practice nurse, she will be able and happy to advise you on healthy eating....

      Please take care, very best wishes to you, DEIRDRE Anne xx

      Thank you Deirdre Anne for your kind remarks and also for sharing your wisdom.   

      I know it is easy to dismiss what us oldies say Delilah but we do know a few things you know.   

      Unfortnately we live in an age where appearance is considered the be all and end all of everything and it is easy for people especially women to be judged purely on their looks and body size.  I understand the pressure you are under but good health is the most important gift you can have so please do what you can to preserve yours.  Take care.

      Bev xx

    Eating less doesn't make you lose weight. It's about fuelling your body properly. Three meals and two healthy snacks and lots of water to drink will fuel you properly.
