Mickey,

You lose weight and maintain a strong body through a healthy lifestyle of exercise and nutrition. But, another component of health equally important is to maintain a strong mind.

My concern is that losing weight in an effort to get a boyfriend back is not healthy. Thinking a physical change is a way to correct differences is a dangerous path to go down. It is not maintaining a strong mind. At 13 I'm sure you have had differences with your parents at some point. What do you do when you have differences with your parents...do you try to lose weight? I'm sure you have had differences with female friends...do you try to lose weight? I'm pretty confident the answer to both of those situations is no. Dealing with relationships with males that are friends should be no different.

@Mickeyy 214,
According to this chart:
http://www.buzzle.com/articles/proper-weight-for-height-and-age.html
You are of a relatively healthy weight.

Keep in mind you are still growing and if you keep a good and modest diet and a relatively healthy exercise regime (even if its basically walking to and/or from school every other day, etc...) then you should be fit as a fiddle.

Have you any interest in participating in any school related sports or say a dance class? That would be a much healthier fitness regiment then dieting at your age.

On the other hand, doing small things like drinking water instead of soda and eating celery and peanut butter, or apples, etc... instead of chips and/or cookies for snack is a great healthy lifestyle habit to get into.

I'm not saying that the occasional bit of ice cream or whatever can't hurt but the key term is moderation. Which is a simple idea and concept that a lot of people don't necessarily adopt until they are much older.

So what kind of junk food do you find yourself eating frequently? You should make a list of these foods of which you have a fondness for: McDonalds, pizza, etc... and then try and figure out healthier alternatives to choose when you have the urge to snack.

At 13yo 5' ~ 100lb, you are perfectly fine, and don't need to worry about losing weight. Do what makes you happy, and don't get caught up in the idea that you need to change your appearance just to meet somebody else's expectations. You're fine the way you are! Be proud of that...

@Mickeyy 214,
Please, please discuss this issue with your parents as they need to help you understand a bit about self confidence. At 5 ft tall and 105 lbs you're at an ideal weight for your height and age. You need to feel better about yourself and not look to a boyfriend for validation.

Why would you want a boyfriend who only likes you for the way you look? He'll just dump you when a better looking girl smiles his way. Find a guy who likes you for who you are and then you will irreplaceable.

Pssst...it's only gay guys who design clothing for women and other girls who think stick bodies are good, really men like their women to be warm and curvy.

When I graduated from high school, I was 5'3" tall and weighed 106. There is nothing wrong with your weight.

However, I think 13 is far too young to be worrying about a boyfriend.

Follow tzarstephen's advice. Eat healthy stuff and do eliminate soda.

Can you walk to school or is the neighborhood too rough or the distance more than two miles? If the distance is more than 2 mi., just walk home. Find a sport that you like. Tennis and golf are life sports. So is track because you can run for years.

How would this work? Drinking ice cold water actually burns calories, because your body has to expend energy to warm it up to body temperature. But I've never heard of hot water doing anything...

@Pangloss,
That's because hot water and weight loss is a myth.

No, it won't. Honey is basically pure sugar.

@Mickeyy 214,
What i am trying to do is eat healthy and try not to snack on unhealthy foods too much. Only have three meals a day. breakfast should be your biggest meal because you have the whole day to work off your food. dinner should be the smallest meal. So to lose weight you have to eat right and exercise daily. maybe go on a jog once or twice a week.
thanks

@DrDick,
I answered another question like this. Although your ex-boyfriend should love for who you are, you can loose weight to acheive your personal goals. And here's a perfect solution that works. Sleep a lot. During the REM stages of sleep your brain burns more than 3 times the calories of running on a treadmill for hours! Expert say that this is probably even better and more important than diet because it is healthy for a person to eat junk food,but in moderation, so that it's not too tempting and it won't become a serious problem when you're older. So try to get in as much sleep as you can and you can still exercise too because the more you do in a day, the more your brain will have to work to re-strengthen you for the next and help you burn 3times the calories so many times faster!
