How can I lose weight without my parents involvement?

I tried to talk to my mom about it but she just tells me I am fine, I checked my BMI and it says I am overweight. I am a 15 year old girl, 5 foot 11 inches, and 175 pounds. How can I lose weight fast without my parents involvement (so i cannot do programs, or have special meals cooked) We are going on vacation soon, and i want to lose weight for it. Any suggestions?

    It’s great that you are taking initiative and losing weight! It will boost your confidence and improve your health so I applaud you for taking this much needed step.

    Here are some things you MUST do if you are serious about weight loss. You have to get into the mind set of a person who’s goal is to shed pounds, and you have to be serious about what you put into your body as well as what activities you partake in…
    1. DRINK DRINK DRINK! Drinking alot of water is key. You don’t really need 8 glasses, but obviously stay hydrated. Drink when you are thirsty and keep a water bottle with you during the day. There are different low calorie flavors you can add to water to make it “easier” to drink more of.
    2. Excercise. You won’t lose weight unless you sweat! Walk every morning or night…or both! Walk your dog.Go jogging. Whatever it is, get your heart rate up. Blast some music in your room and dance for 10 minutes straight. Following excercises to “tighten your core” or “firm you butt” won’t be helpful now if you’re just interested in losing weight. THose things are better for when you’ve lost most of the weight.
    3. Write down everything you eat. Stick to a 1,500 or 2,000 calorie diet. If you write down everything you consume, you’ll be less likely to eat bad things. Junk food is a big no. For an easy way to stay on track, buy Lean Cuisine meals or Weight Watchers. Just make smart food choices. Portion control is key. Drink a glass of water before every meal so you don’t eat as much.
    4. Weigh yourself every day – this keeps you on track. Proven fact!
    5. Don’t get down on yourself if you don’t see results automatically. If you make all these changes, you will see results. If you are good to your body, you’ll see results in the mirror and on the scale 🙂

    Hope this helped!

    Firstly, BMI isn’t that accurate as it doesn’t take into consideration muscle:fat as you know muscle weighs more than fat. You are really tall almost 6ft and 15 and a girl! 🙂

    Anyway..you could go jogging they can’t stop you for appreciating the outdoors while getting a little exercise: you could say you want to get fit not lose weight as you get unfit skinny people so they can’t really argue with that. Skipping is a good way to lose weight and its cheap.

    Also I found this routine out a while ago (for burning ‘belly fat’:

    The first two minutes of this fat burning routine is: Jump Rope – Begin by performing two jumps for each turn of the rope.

    Minutes two to three: Squat Thrust into a Push Up. The proper technique for this exercise is to stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms strait down next to your sides. Slowly squat down with your head forward and bring your hands to the floor just outside of your feet. Your hands should be pointing forward as well. Then in one movement, push your legs back and out behind you (into a pushup position). Perform one strict pushup and then jump back into your squat position and then stand back up.
    Minutes three to four: Jump Rope with only one jump per turn. Keep thinking, The fat is melting away.
    Minutes four to five: Back to the Squat Thrust and Push Up only this time you are going to add the Side Plank. After completing your squat thrust and push up, you are going to lift and rotate your left arm off of the ground and over your head. Your left foot will rotate and rest on top of you right foot. And you will rotate your neck so you are looking up at your ceiling. Rotate back to the center and repeat on the other side. When finished, hop back into your squat position, stand up and start again. Keep thinking, no more belly.
    Minutes five and six: Jump Rope. Same as minutes three and four.
    Minutes six and seven: Back to the Squat Thrust and Push Up only this time you are going to add the Leg Lift. This is the same as minutes two and three only this time you will lift the toes of one foot about twelve inches off of the ground only after you have performed your push up. Lower your foot and repeat on the other side. Hop back up to your squat position, stand up, and start again.
    Minutes six and seven: Back to the Squat Thrust and Push Up only this time you are going to add the Leg Lift. This is the same as minutes two and three only this time you will lift the toes of one foot about twelve inches off of the ground only after you have performed your push up. Lower your foot and repeat on the other side. Hop back up to your squat position, stand up, and start again.
    Minutes eight and nine: Back to the Squat Thrust and Push Up only this time you are going to add Mountain Climbers. Repeat everything as in minutes two and three only this time after your push up, you will quickly jog in place from your push up position. Make sure you bring your knees up to your chest on each rotation. Perform 5 jogs and repeat this entire process.
    Minutes nine and ten: Jump Rope. Same as you first two minutes.

    This looks like it could work..good luck and I hope you enjoy the holiday. 🙂

    BMI is evil in my opinion. It’s not the most accurate way to show obesity. It was developed back in the mid 1800s. The history of the uses are convoluted.

    Check your body fat % instead.

    Realize your still growing before panicking about being over weight. Also, realize that long term weight lose doesn’t just happen in a small period of time.

    Too lose weight, you have to burn more than you consume. Monitor your eating, smaller portions are your friend. Make smaller plates at meal times and take your time eating. Its easier to control your calorie intake verses burning calories via workouts. Make sure your diet is balanced, fruits and vegetables and whole grains.

    Exercise 3-4 times a week. Cardio activities like brisk walks, running, basketball, swimming blah blah blah.

    Do not listen to your parents or anyone who thinks your weight is not a problem! You have to feel good about you, so as long as you don’t go below your BMI you’ll be fine. Drink lots of water and cut your eating portions in half. The first week you will feel like you’re starving, but afterwards your stomach will get accustomed to eating less and you will loose a lot of weight. After you loose the weight, make sure you do not relapse and start eating the same portions you are used to. Start a diet where you eat healthy all week and then reward yourself with a treat on the weekend so that your cravings do not take control and ruin your diet. Have will power, hang up posters of women who have your ideal physique and once again, do not let anyone tell you that you are fine. 175 lbs is extremely heavy for 15 year old girl, no matter how tall you are.
