Hi Kaitlin,

You say you're not overweight for your height - which I assume means you're in a healthy range? If so, then there's probably no real need for you to lose any more weight. The only tips I feel comfortable offering, as I would assume would be the same for most people here is a healthy diet and exercise. It sounds as thought your perception of your body may have been altered, and if that's the case, maybe it would be good to talk to a professional about it in case it becomes something more.

Hi there.

If you are in a weight range where losing weight isn't going to bad bad for you then there is nothing wrong in losing some weight. But do it in a healthy way. Its not all about the calories you are consuming but also about the fat content you are consuming from the foods you are eating. And remember that exersise is part of a healthy life style too. It's all about getting the right balance, you know?

If you're healthy, then you have nothing to worry about. I see slim girls, and slightly "chubby" girls... none of it means anything as long as they eat well and exercise enough. If you're obese then you have a problem.

If you're after body image, then really I thought I knew what I was talking about... but I've been reading so many different things that I'm lost in it. The general idea is eat a balanced diet, with a bit more salad and low calorific foods instead of things such as meat and carbohydrates (potatoes, pasta, bread etc), and get about 30 minutes of exercise a day. Something like faced-paced walking. Going extreme and doing 2 hours a day of running in the gym apparently doesn't work as well as people think, not for weight loss. I don't know why, it's just what I hear.

You can do fast-paced walking even on your way to school.

And some discipline. I see people who think they've done a good job by doing some solid exercise routine, reward themselves afterwards with a McDonalds. lol. Don't do things like that. It totally defeats the purpose.

"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
