I have been through a similar situation.
September of 2005, I weighed 420lbs. Shocking, i know. I was 20 years old.
I started a new job the very same month. My problem was that I always just sat around, never doing anything. As soon as that tiny change in my daily habit happened, where I walked a lot more, got up more often, my weight started to nosedive.
The following September, I was to 330. I lost 90 lbs in a year, w/o trying to. Just from changing my habits.
Right now, I am at 295lbs, New Years Day i was 315. I want to get to the weight I was on my drivers license when i was 18, which was 270, before April. And I believe I will achieve this goal, but I am going about it a not so healthy way.
Today, I ate 3 slices of bread so far, and I wont be eating anything until my packet of Ramen at dinner. I do not recommend this to you, being so young. But I do have several ideas for you to take into consideration.
1. NO SODA! Drink as much water as you can every day. Anytime you think about it, go get some water. Stay away from Kool-Aid too. I am only drinking water and milk. This is especially hard for a Mountain Dew addict, which I was.
2. Never eat to get full. You will realize, when you are hungry, and you eat something as small as a PB&J Sandwich, you will not still be hungry after you eat it, but you are not full either. Doing this several times a day will kick start your metabolism to working faster. Every time you get hungry, eat something small like an apple, or another PB&J sandwich. Worked great for me.
3. Walk. Yes, you walk every day in school and everything, but after school, just go around your block once or twice. This really helps. Soon, you can start to go more laps, or just further. I'm up to 3 miles a day.
4. Make a promise to someone you care about. Seriously, this is only for motivation purposes. You don't want to disappoint anyone by breaking a promise right? This mindset should allow you to resist temptation and stay on the path.
5. Make Mini-Goals. The overall goal of -50lbs is good, but to help with your motivation, set mini goals like 2 lbs a week, or 10lbs a month. This will help in the area of you being able to see progress regularly.
6. Only get on the scale once a week, if not once every two weeks. If you get on the scale every day, and see barely to no movement, this will hinder your progress by making you think what you are doing isn't working.
7. Take your picture. A picture that only you can see every day for motivation. I took my picture when I was 320, I see it every day and I know I don't want to look like that anymore. Plus, makes a good "before" picture that you can show off to people.
That's all I can think of kiddo. I do hope you reach your goal. In fact, I would like to hear from you when your 5 months are over or any time you need to chat to someone about it.
You can get it done.
Whats a reasonable amount of weight to lose in about 2 months?
At your age, I'd say about 10 pounds would be doable. What is your current height and weight? You can help figure out what kind of goal for yourself and how to achieve it if you know what is healthy for you. Try this website if you need somewhere to start:
Please be sure to never ever eat less than about 1800calories. Your body is still building itself, and even eating that much, you can easily lose weight. If you eat too little, your metabolism will slow down and it will stunt your growth big time. Just be careful with your body! As with any diet, you will get out of it what you put into it.
What is the youngest?
Lina Medina (born September 27, 1933) is the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, giving birth at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days.
Born in Peru, Lina was brought to a hospital by her parents at the age of 5 years because of increasing abdominal size. She was originally thought to have had a tumor, but her doctors determined she was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Dr. Gerardo Lozada took her to Lima, Peru, prior to the surgery to have other specialists confirm that Lina was in fact pregnant. A month and a half later, on May 14, 1939, she gave birth to a boy by a caesarean section necessitated by her small pelvis. The surgery was performed by Dr. Lozada and Dr. Busalleu, with Dr. Colretta providing anaesthesia. Her case was reported in detail by Dr. Edmundo Escomel to La Presse Medicale, along with the additional details that her menarche had occurred at 8 months of age (or 2 1/2 according to a different article), and that she had had prominent breast development by the age of 4. By age 5 her figure displayed pelvic widening and advanced bone maturation.
Her son weighed 2.7 kg (6.0 lb/0.43 st) at birth and was named Gerardo after her doctor. Gerardo was raised believing that Lina was his sister, but found out at the age of ten that she was his mother. He grew up healthy but died in 1979 at the age of 40 of a disease of the bone marrow.
There was never evidence that Lina Medina's pregnancy occurred in any but the usual way, but she never revealed the father of the child, nor the circumstances of her impregnation. Dr. Escomel suggested she might not actually know herself by writing that Lina "couldn't give precise responses". Lina's father was arrested on suspicion of rape and incest, but was later released due to lack of evidence. Medina later married Raúl Jurado, who fathered her second son in 1972. They live in a poor district of Lima known as Chicago Chico ("Little Chicago"). She refused an interview with Reuters in 2002.
In young adulthood she worked as a secretary in the Lima clinic of Dr. Gerardo Lozada, the doctor who performed her caesarean section. Lozada gave her an education, and helped put her son through high school.
There are two published photographs documenting the case. The first was taken around the beginning of April 1939, when Medina was seven and a half months into pregnancy. Taken from Medina's left side, it shows her standing naked in front of a neutral backdrop. This is the only published photograph of Lina taken during her pregnancy. This photograph is of significant value because it proves Medina's pregnancy as well as the extent of her physiological development. However, this photograph is not widely known outside medical circles. The other photograph is of far greater clarity and was taken a year later in Lima when Gerardo was eleven months old.
Although the case was called a hoax by some, a number of doctors over the years have verified it based on biopsies, X rays of the fetal skeleton in utero, and photographs taken by the doctors caring for her. Extreme degrees of precocious puberty in children under 5 are very uncommon but not unheard of. Pregnancy and delivery by a child this young remains extremely rare. Extremely precocious puberty is treated to suppress fertility, preserve growth potential, and reduce the social consequences of full sexual development in childhood, because termination of such pregnancy is more widely available now than in the early 20th century, and because of social mores against sex with infants in many cultures.
