How can I get into shape and lose some weight?

I’m 5’9″ and weigh 145 lbs, but all my sisters and my mom are really skinny and I feel gross when I’m around them. My older sisters are good bike riders and my other sister just lost a bunch of weight by pretty much starving herself. I feel really selfconsious about my body but I dont want to hurt my body by starving myself. I kind of want to get onto my school’s track team, but I suck at running and am really out of shape. How do i get into shape and lose a few pounds? How would I be able to run long distances without getting cramps or out of breath?

    Excuse me but “God” you’re already a skin-flint, what else do you want to lose, your mind. Your weight is also below your ideal weight for your height. You’re fine at that weight don’t go overboard.

    5’9″ and 145 is really not overweight at all. Quit comparing yourself to your unhealthy family. If you want to get in better shape, start slowly. You should get winded, but not so much that you can’t keep going. Exercise is hard work. There’s no way around it. Biking is easier than running, but you won’t burn as many calories unless you really push yourself.

    One thing that will help you lose weight: diet pills. I was one of those who did not believe in them until I tried it. And I tried a few. The best product I found on the market is made with pure hoodia and it works great! You can go to and order you free trial, also you only pay 5.49$ shipping and handling. Good luck!

    Try low carb, low fat, high fibre, high protein, and exercise. The foods are low caloried, and yet filling and healthy. Brisk walking is great for burning body fats.

    It is my lifestyle now. I am on low carb, low fat, high fibre, high protein and a hour brisk walk 5 times a week, and I have lost 31lbs/14kg and gained better health. I am now maintaining my 108lbs/49kg for more than a year, with more fruits and complex carbs.

    Details such as my experience, meals, snacks, recipes, foods to buy, reading labels, walking as an exercise and to shape the body etc etc, are in my blog

    How to Lose Weight Naturally?

    How to lose weight naturally has been in debate for years.

    Some say low carb. Some say high carb. Some say it’s how much food. Some say it’s how much exercise. But none of these covers the whole picture.

    How to lose weight naturally is not rocket science. It just takes accepting the facts of these seven natural laws of weight loss, plus good old-fashioned stick-to-itiveness.

    Seven Laws of How to Lose Weight Naturally

    1. Make a commitment to whatever it takes. You not only need to know what to do, you also have to manage yourself in such a way that you do it. If you already knew exactly how to get yourself to lose weight and keep it off, you’d be at your perfect weight right now. Without 100% commitment to do what it takes, your goal has no staying power.

    2. Start from a foundation of happiness. Most people think losing weight will make them happy. But happiness is a mental state that can only be created right now. And nobody wins at any challenge if they’re unhappy. So be happy. Accept yourself and your current circumstances and be enthusiastic about the future you’re creating.

    3. Design your own healthy diet plan. Natural doesn’t mean spontaneous. As a matter of fact, spontaneous gratification is what gets most of us into trouble. Just like managing your time and money, weight management takes planning and organization. To burn more calories than you consume, based on your lifestyle, how are you going to handle the details?

    4. Manage your emotions. Emotional eating is a major reason for failure. We’ve learned to use sweets, fatty foods and overeating for entertainment, celebration and to sooth and stuff down unpleasant emotions. Come up with a list of other things you enjoy (besides eating). And begin exchanging old bad habits for healthy new ways of enjoyment and soothing.

    5. Find a way to exercise daily. Exercise is healthy and burns calories. It doesn’t have to be complicated or extreme. It just has to happen. Decide what kind would be best for you and work it out with your schedule. There are great exercise videos, walking paths and a variety of gyms everywhere. Choose a time and method and make it a regular habit.

    6. Keep a Journal. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Studies show the great majority of people who lose weight and keep it off are very aware of what they eat and the calories they consume. Many keep a journal. Research shows those who guess at the amounts, without writing them down (at least in the beginning), grossly underestimate their calories.

    7. Be persistent. Nothing gets accomplished without persistence. Persistence is the only common denominator of all successful people. The story goes that Thomas Edison had 999 failures before he finally invented the light bulb. If you’ve tried and failed 999 times, learn from your mistakes and do it better next time. The only way to succeed is to persist.
