Asked: Weight Loss + Medication Help?
Hey everyone, I'm currently trying to lose weight. I want to know if a GP can give me some medication to aid my weight loss.
First of all, I have a BMI of 28, so yes, I realise I'm overweight, but not huuugely overweight.
I've been doing personal training and dieting for a while but I'm not losing a substantial amount of weight. (My goal is to lose 13 kilos) which will put me back to a healthy BMI.
I'm Australian, and I wonder if my GP could give me something to help with the weight loss.
I'm already burning more calories than I'm putting in, but I can't seem to lose anything.
Thank you 🙂
Asked: Weight loss question?
Okay, I am 18 year old male who is 6 ft 3 tall and 156.2kgs (yes kgs..)
I am big boned and a good portion of my weight will be because of a big frame and my height.
I am currently trying to walk 1 hour and a half each day(1 hour in morning, 30 min at night), with maybe the exception of one day off a week to let my feet rest.
I am also eating a fair bit healthier most days my diet consists of:
– Breakfast: 2 slices of toast with a scraping of margarine (sometimes just have plain bread with nothing on it)
– Lunch: 1 sandwich (or sometimes no lunch at all)
– Dinner: Usally mashed potato and vegies with either beef, chicken, lamb or pork.
How much weight would I expect to lose using this method, and any suggestions to optimise my weight loss would be good too 🙂
Also I am worried about having saggy and stretchy skin after I lose weight, is their any ideas on how to get around this and make my skin not so stretchy.
Thank you very much 🙂
Asked: How do i lose weight, I’m 15?
This is taken from a blog I did (please read it) It explains most of everything with just a couple details left out, but I think you'll get my main point:
Hi, I'm Nicole, a 15 year old girl born in North Carolina on November 12, 1997. As a child, like any child, body image and just my overall look in general wasn't a big deal to me, I just did what made me happy. At around 11-12 years old I went from being 95 pounds up to 130 pounds overnight it seemed like. I knew I was overweight and once I realized I was overweight, so did everyone else. I was made fun of at school AND at home, I'd be called "chunky monkey" , "fat whore" etc. one time I was even told "I should pass the chocolate cake". During the time my home life wasn't all that great either; nothing seemed right.
My older sister, Allison, born February 17, 1994, was stick skinny, and weighed less than me.
I began to hate myself and feel worthless in every way possible. Crying alone led to attempts of suicide; why should i be here if i can't be skinny? The only thing that kept me from committing suicide was knowing that my family and friends would be devastated, however,When I turned 13 I finally got the courage to tie a belt around my neck. Standing in front of my closet door, looking into the closet, I said to myself "Its now or never". Crying, I slowly stepped up on a stool; ready to get it over with. Then I heard my mom walking up the stairs and so I untied the belt, ran to my bed, sat down fast and wiped away all my tears. When she walked in I acted like nothing was wrong, but really, I was dying inside. I hated myself so much, pictures of skinny girls, weight loss ads on tv, in magazines, everywhere, just beat at me. In my head I was worthless and didn't deserve to live. Every night I'd cry alone and look in the mirror at my stomach, arms, and legs; why?
In November of 2012, at the age of 15, and 116 pounds, I began to overdose. When I got mad or upset I'd look for pills with the worst side affects possible and I'd overdose on them in hopes that it'd kill me. No one, my parents nore friends, seemed to care, I guess because I kept everything a secret; suicide attempts, overdosing, crying every night, hating myself. In December of 2012 I began to eat only two small meals a day; which turned into one small meal a day by February of 2013. And now in March of 2013 I am still only eating one small meal a day. If I eat more than I'd like to I'll make myself throw up, this just recently started. Last night I was sitting in front of a trash can gagging myself to death to make myself throw up, this also happened the night before. I was crying and once again felt worthless. At 5'3-4, 116 pounds, and a BMI of 19.9-20.5, I'm still not happy with how I look; I'm trying to lose weight. According to Media, skinny is pretty, and im definitely not skinny, so I guess I'm not pretty.
How do i lose weight? I'm desperate v.v
Asked: Have I lost weight too fast?
Ok, I'm 5"6 and started at 56kg with a BMI of 20.1
Just over a month ago I started to try and lose weight. It didn't work at first but then a month ago I started to lose some.
Now I'm 51kg with a BMI of 18.1 and still the same height. I lost most of the weight in about the past two weeks.
Have I lost it too quickly? I did kind of go overboard… I've had anorexia for a long time and go through periods of suddenly eating less but never usually do it for that long but I've been not eating as much for more than a month now.
The amount of calories has decreased each week. I started eating 1600, then 1400, then 1200, then 1100, 900, 800, 700……. then the other day I only ate about 180. I'm trying to eat more but it's hard.
Did I lose the weight too quickly?
Asked: How do I lose my fat?
I'm so fat! I have a 39" waist,I'm 5'3" and 9st. I want to lose all my fat, I'm not too bothered about my weight, I just want to lose my fat to stop people laughing at me and bullying me
Asked: Can someone help me with foods and drinks that help with weight loss?
I'm looking for a drink that will cleanse me out or that is really healthy to drink (other than water which i'm already drinking) and also any foods suggestion and tips about excersizing?
Asked: Why am I struggling to lose weight?
I know this is a really hard question to answer- but I'm just looking for advice from people who have had success with weight loss. I've been trying for months now.
I run 4-5 times a week, for about 25-30 minutes or I'll do interval training on he treadmill. And I'll so strength training too. I don't eat meat or dairy, and I stay away from grains as best as I can. I know how to eat healthy: no processed foods, plenty of veggies, etc etc. I follow all these rules. But I haven't lost any weight or even noticed any changes on my body. It's so frustrating, I don't know what else I can do besides deprive myself and I'm not going to do that. I'm also 18, so it should be so much easier for me to lose weight than older women. Does anyone have tips or advice? I'm not seriously overweight or anything, I'm 5'9 and around 147 lbs, so I do have some weight to lose. But I excercise a lot and really watch what I eat, with no results. Any advice?
