Anonymous said: Whenever I try to start eating clean and exercising, my parents tell me it's a phase and guilt me back to my old habits. I really want to make a change, but can't convince them. Any advice?

Be honest with them. Tell them that you could really use their support in this, and see if you can even get them to get healthy with you (or at least to let you try to do this). As hard as it is, you have to try to not let the opinions of others get to you. YOU want this, so YOU have to work for it. Just remember, this is YOUR journey so it’s up to you to make the changes. And when you’re fit and healthy, they’ll be sorry they doubted you and called it “just a phase.”

Anonymous said: I hate my weight and height ! And no matter how much I try to lose weight I can't !! I'm stuck at overweight and have been since 7th grade . I can't lose weight and I'm 4'11 and 135 pounds ! I'm trying desperately I've even starved myself I can't lose wight !! No matter how much I try . I hate it sooo much . I try I try I try ! The next thing I'm going to try is either pills , cabbage soup , and if neither of them work , I'll start trying unhealthy ways :( I'm crying my eyes out while writting

Don’t say you can’t. Because you CAN. I was overweight my whole life growing up, and I thought I couldn’t lose the weight either. But then I did. And I realized it was because I didn’t have the tools and knowledge I do now. The most important thing you have to remember: losing weight is about being healthy. You have to go about it the healthy way because when you don’t, that’s when you gain the weight back and destroy your health (mental and physical) in the process. Losing weight is not the important thing of this journey. It’s about getting healthy, getting stronger, getting confident, and getting happy. You can achieve all these things if you just stick with it. Think about it this way: You focus so much on the scale and losing weight, that the minute you don’t see the scale moving anymore, you give up. But scales don’t constantly move. There was a good picture I can’t find anymore, but basically it had weight loss expectations as a perfect line graph going down, but the weight loss reality graph was up and down and all over the place. Because that truly is reality. Your weight is constantly going to be fluctuating, but that doesn’t mean what you’re doing is not working. You just have to keep at it. Daily exercise & clean eating is the way to lose weight. It’s worked for me and countless other people. And it’s actually been scientifically proven that the longer it takes you to lose the weight, the more likely you are to keep it off. Slow and steady wins the race.

A little cleanse I like to call the “stop eating junk food and start moving” cleanse.
