Maricela answers:

I know you’re not going to want to hear this but weight loss like that is horrible for your health. You WILL gain it all back if you lose it that fast, and there is no safe way to lose that much weight in 2 weeks. A good goal might be 2-3 pounds a week.

Rapid weight loss causes saggy boobs (it’s true), increased chance of being overweight later in life, and so many health probs its ridiculous. Also, you’ll have extra skin.

The only way to lose that much weight is to starve yourself; you’ll end up dead before you end up skinny. Just take it slow, and learn to love the body you’re in now. You only get one shot at life- don’t mess it up.

George asks…

I need motivation to start working out please help me!?

Hey guys. I’m a teenage girl and overweight. I just went through a really hard break up and I need to remake myself. I don’t have exercise machines or weights or a gym membership and it is 42 degrees Celsius outside right now (102F) and I REALLY don’t want to go running like this.

I look in the mirror and want to cry because of how insecure I am because of my weight PLEASE can I have some inspirational words I know this sounds silly but you won’t understand unless you’ve been in this position.

What are the benefits of working out what can I do please just motivate me this is easy points I don’t even mind if it’s offensive as long as it works :/

How to motivate yourself to exercise.

1. Do it with a friend.
Statistics tell us that people who exercise with a friend are more
successful at exercising consistently. You can keep each other
accountable. Knowing that someone is waiting for you to exercise with
them can be great motivation to show up and get it done!
2. Do exercising which you enjoy. For example, you find running
boring. You can replace it with any other cardio activity: roller
blading, playing badminton, tennis, bicycling burn a lot of
calories, and you feel more like you are having fun, than like you are
punishing yourself for that extra doughnut.
3. Choose music you like, dynamic and vigourous, to make it more
pleasant.
4. Check regularly with your clothes, see how they become bulkier,
whoop from joy, photograph the progress and create a photo gallery on
your computer.
5. Set fitness goals, independent on weight loss. For example, say to
yourself “Next time, I will run quicker, and it will take me only ten
minutes to do so”, or such. You will feel like a real athlete,
preparing for a big day. Keep a journal of your athletic achievements.
6. Compete. Enrol into a local amateur tennis competition, for
example. This way, you will have a goal to achieve, which is different
from your weight loss, and you will have people to impress and you
will have to be adequate, so you’ll try harder.
7. Reward yourself (but not with food, you will end eating more than
you burned, and will become disillusioned quickly). Invent a set of
rules for yourself, for example: every time I am not feeling like
exercising, but do it, I will put 1 dollar in my piggy bank, every
time I achieve this or that goal – three. At the end of the month go
out and buy yourself the most impractical things you were craving but
denying yourself with this money.
8. Do not wait for some big moment or big day to start exercising.
There are spaces in your daily schedule when you procrastinate – fill
them with activities. For example, instead of sitting on the couch,
saying “It does not matter, I am going to the gym the next day”, get
off and do a series of push ups, or skip with the skipping rope (buy
it for one dollar in one dollar store), walk down the stairs at work
or around the block at your lunch break. This way, you are exercising,
fighting boredom, and do not have to sweat in the gym for hours
afterwards. This random 7-10 minutes activities will roll at the end
of the day into a full gym session!
9. Use “I will show them all” technique (sparingly). Think about the
mean people who teased you, the girl who refused to go out with you, a
sneering sales person in the clothes shop, imagine them all, and “show
them” – run fast, kick high, and end being and feeling gorgeous!

Chris asks…

Cut my hair shorter or grow it out?

Should I cut my hair shorter or let it grow? I have a pixie cut with short back and longer sides. I am debating wether to get it shorter into a shorter pixie cut which I think is my preferable option or should I let it grow. I am a teenage girl also have prom in June. 🙂

Maricela answers:

Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I’d
say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

Hope I helped!

Daniel asks…

What’s a good diet for a teenage girl?

I’m 15 and i’m 5’5 i weigh 153 lbs i’ve lost 50 lbs on atkins within the year so i want to weigh 120 lbs in 105 days so that’s 33 lbs off in 105 days and it seems possible to me but i don’t know how i should do it! i want some diet recommendations! should i stay on atkins?

Maricela answers:

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet.

The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure.

It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

You can see further details in a web search for “dash diet” + “lose weight”.

Laura asks…

Sagging skin for teen weight loss?

I’m a teenage girl that is 5’5”, 14 years old, and weighs now 262 lbs. My beginning weight was 278 lbs. and my goal weight is 130 lbs.

I’ve been working on a weight loss plan for the past month, and so far I’ve been sticking to it. I’ve been doing a variety of calisthenic exercises for 30 mins a day, and going for a jog/run for 20 mins each day. Approx. 4 times a week I also do pilates/yoga. This has been a successful plan for me, as I’ve already lost 17 lbs.

However, I’ve been doing a lot of research about sagging skin. I know that there are ways to prevent it from happening, and there are also ways to treat it if it does happen. However, the only experiences I’ve heard are from people that were 30+ that lost over 100lbs, and they have had serious sagging skin that they could only correct with surgery. I’m NOT going to get plastic surgery at my age, and I plan to have all of the weight off by next year in March. Is the sagging going to be very bad even though I’m young, just because of the amount of weight lost? Also, if I were to start some of the sagging skin and stretch mark treatments now (such as tightening creams or lotions) would that help me in the future?

The idea of all of my skin sagging down at age 16 scares me… and I don’t want to be scared to lose weight. Please help!

Maricela answers:

If you are going to be losing a lot of weight, taking care of your skin with lotions, eating right, and making sure you lose weight steadily will be a big help to make sure your skin don’t sag once you’ve lost all the weight. Patience is key because if you lose weight fast and don’t care of your body, your skin will lose some of its elasticity and take much longer to tighten up.

I wouldn’t worry about needing surgery until after you’ve finished losing the weight. Even if your skin is loose afterward, your skin will tighten up on its own in the following year or two.

But big props to you for taking care of your body! Losing weight and sticking to a strict regime is not easy–it takes a lot of maturity and responsibility, but it looks like you’re doing really well for yourself.

I hope you keep to it and reach your goals!
