I didn't notice. But they did. My mom said honey are your clothes getting to small for u? And then said later your daddy says your belly is getting bigger and your getting back fat. I was humiliated. Then my bro said, tay, your getting chunky. you shood figure that out.
Ive never been concerned with weigjt before. I wasn't taught to watch what I eat, or how much to work out. I didn't even know my weight until today- I'm 150. Is that bad? I'm 16 and 5'6. And what should I change in my diet and excersise? Obviouslly I'm mortified. I hope people at school Haven't noticed.
Be glad they said something instead of pretending nothing was happening. Your family will always love you, other people don't have too.
If you want to lose weight I wrote this little formula that pretty much details exactly what you have to do to lose weight in however many days you want. Of course, the longer you give yourself (in days), the easier it gets. The shorter, the harder.
You might not be terribly fat, but at this rate it won't take long before you reach the obese range.
Don't look at your current weight as some huge concern, rather look at the trend and see that it could get much worse if you don't stop and doing something about it. Don't be offended, sometimes it's good to have family who can point this out before it's too late.
This is coming from a guy who weighed 168lbs (5'11'') at 16, 198lbs by graduation, and 262lbs by age 20. The weight gain can come hard and fast, you don't want that.
5'6 150 pounds, dear god no offense to you but I don't know you so I'm kick some knowledge your way. your over weight for your height, do what you need to do your still young and can slim up rather fast but chips with stomachs are no bueno especially in high school where everyone is looking at you
Technically according to BMI you are not overweight. BUT you are at the very top of the normal weight range. A couple of years ago I was 155lbs and 5'7 so I know how you feel. I didn't think that I was really that heavy until my parents started commenting.
I went on Nutrisystem...expensive? Yes. But I lost 35lbs in 3months without exercising. And I've kept it all off.
If you just can't afford it then I would say that you need to watch your portions (5 small meals a day), only eat lean protein, eat lots of fruits and veggies, if you drink soda then stop I stopped drinking it and lost two pounds just from that, and add 30mins of cardio 5 times a week.
All of that will definitely help. A goal would be 135-140lbs
