I seriously need to lose some weight?

I am a 20 year old girl, 6ft tall and I weigh 260. I feel really bad about the way I look and have very low self-esteem…I’d like to know of some good easy ways to lose weight so I can feel better about myself. I want to at least get down to 200 by the time my 21st birthday comes around in early October. I don’t have any exercise equipment or anything like that so try and improvise whenever you post something. Any help would be very helpful to me. Thanks!
I just went to a website and checked my BMI….and it’s 35.3. I put in 200 on there and it would be considered overweight but not obese.

    If you’re 6ft and 260, you’d probably make a good basketball player. 60 pounds is quite a lot to lose in a year, so you will probably have to exercise everyday: walk, jog, run.

    eat less, more veggies & fruits, count your calories. Also exercise A LOT: Especially cardio (running, swimming, jogging) because that’s what burns the most calories, causing you to lose weight. dont lose more than 2 pounds a week, because thats unhealthy. dont starve yourself either.

    Drink a large class of water before eating anything. It will help fill you up and cause you to eat less.
    Also, stretching is really good for slimming you down. Find some good stretching to do for your inner legs, outer legs, your waist etc.

    First of all, congratulations. Congratulations because the first step to losing weight is determination and a goal, which you have. I would say, try to invest in a gym membership and do ellipticals and weigh training. If this really is not an option, WALK. This is a fail safe way to lose weight. You burn just as many calories per mile as running the same distance (though for the record, running is better, but you’ll get there). You just need to eat right, and exercise. Throw in muscular training too, because muscle burns more calories, pound for pound. It’s the key to any successful weight loss. Be sure to count calories, and most of all MOVE. When I lost weight, the thing most helpful was writing down everything I ate, all of my activites, and setting a goal. This kept me honest with myself, and was the key to achieving my dream weight. I use , it’s the best. Use it for FREE. I love it. I know you’ll do awesome, GOOD LUCK!

    Everyone can go jogging. I know people who have lost a ton of weight from running because you start out wanting to lose weight then after a while you end up loving it. many books you get on running say it is the best way and it is a stress reliever. Don’t expect to lose it fast, but if you just have fun you will be there in no time.

    Hi there. Here are a few suggestions that might help you. Cut your meal portions almost in half of what you are eating now. Before eating a meal take on a glass of water, this will help you to feel fuller before eating. Try to have at least 6-8 glasses of water per day. While eating, take smaller bites and chew and eat your food slowly. This will allow your stomach to feel full faster. We all love to gobble down good food, but when we do, we eat it so fast that by the time we feel full, we have overate. Try to eat foods that are healthy for you. If you love bread and potatoes and pasta, then eat it in moderation. Try putting your meals on a smaller plate as the brain will say “Hey theres alot of food here.” Try something like 1 small potato, vegetables and a small piece of meat for supper. Have a sandwich at lunch or soup and a salad, and ALWAYS make sure that you eat breakfast, as that is the most important meal of the day. A bowl of cereal with a yogurt or a piece of fruit help to start the day off right.
    Since you don’t have any exercise equipment, go for a brisk walk every day. Walking is 1 of the best forms of exercise. Walking works all your muscles and is good for the heart and the fresh air will make you feel better too. Try not to set your goals for losing weight very high. In the beginning set a goal to lose 10 pounds and when you’ve reached that goal, reward yourself with a new top or a pair of shoes or a manicure. Just something to make you feel good about what you have accomplished. After the first 10 pounds are off set another goal for another 10 pounds. Again reward yourself with something you want. Its not easy to lose weight, but with some self control and the determination to want to lose weight will definitely help you. Also, don’t weigh yourself everyday as this can be discouraging. Weigh yourself once a week maybe on a Monday morning and stick to that. I know when I tried to lose some weight, I weighed myself everyday and noticed that 1 day I might lose 1 pound and then the next day could have gained 2 poinds. We all carry alot of water in our body, and we will carry some extra weight especially around that time of month. So please don’t get discouraged, just keep on your routine and things will go fine for you. If you are a person that has a sweet tooth then allow yourself to splurge at least once a week with maybe a piece of chocolate just to take the craving away. If you take away everything that you love then you are going to feel withdrawn and discouraged.
    I hope this has helped and if you would like, you can let me know on your progress so I can cheer you on. Remember to love yourself for who you are and that you are just trying to boost your self esteem. We are all beautiful inside and out not matter what weight, race, or age we are. Very best of luck to you and I know you can do it!!!

    if losing some pounds of any description and inches is what you want then I would suggest you use a diet that is all natural and is rich in protein and vitamins. I used a protein based diet with Herbalife after a friend who had lost weight recommended it to me. All the way through you feel great and energized, you also get great coaching and support along the way. The people are very friendly and gave me lots of great advice. I needed to lose 40 pounds and I did so fairly easily. There is no pressure and they will even send you a load of free samples so you can try before you buy. The samples were the thing that initially convinced me that this was the right path to choose. The products really work and you feel great whilst losing weight. You also a get e free complete health consultation with the samples, I think I just paid the postage, but for what I got it was well worth it.
    I lost all my weight in less than four months and they have helped me to keep it off. I would definitely recommend using them. The owners will advise you on what to purchase depending on what you want to lose, my sister did this also and lost 76 pounds in less than five months. The website is You just leave your details and they call you up, I would suggest that if you aren’t sure or don’t want someone to ring you then go to their main site and you can see all the products and packages. This is what I did before I went to the first site and left my details so they could contact me. You can see with all the products and detail they have, so you know that they mean business. Its nice to have contact with real people who care about you losing weight and improving your health. I know that I will continue to keep the weight off with the help I have received. I hope this helps.
