I am 5'0 and 175lbs. I am extremely over weight by at least 50 lbs and losing weight is EXTREMELY hard for me.
I dont eat healthy, my parents do not buy healthy food. I've tried exercising so many times by just doing jumping jacks and sit ups and crunches and all those kinds of things in my bedroom to my favorite music but I get bored so easily so then I stop exercising. I don't have a treadmill or any exercise equipment. We can't afford it. I don't have a gym membership we can't afford it.
I am so unhealthy, so tired of being fat and overweight and I just really really need help.
Everytime I exercise I never see results. I need to eat healthy but I can't stand healthy foods. My parents never motivate me to lose weight and I have extremely low will power. As were speaking my mom is eating chips. My dad always offers me candy and chips as well when he knows I'm overweight and trying my best to get skinny. Nothing helps.
Is there any advice you could give me? Foods that are good to eat? Ways to burn quick fat? Please :(

Trying to lose weight takes a lot of commitment and motivation so you really need to find some motivation I recommend going on sparkteens. com. Here's my advice. Drink LOTS of water and cut down on sugary drinks. Drinking water helps you flush out all the waste in your body. Eat smaller portions and eat very slow. This is what helped me lose weight the most actually! It takes 20 minutes for your brain to get the message that you're full. If you eat fast and with bigger portions you'll just end up overeating. Exercise is VERY important. I recommend anything to do with aerobics. Running, walking, hiking, swimming and my favorite was dancing. Zumba works well and you don't need to go the gym or a class for it. I watched videos on YouTube. by the way doing situps and crutches won't help you lose stomach fat. You can't target where you want to lose weight. Situps/crutches are more for developing abs. Another important factor is eating breakfast. It sounds cliche but it's true. You know how you get hungry usually every 4 hours well think about the long hours of sleep you get without eating. If you don't eat breakfast you'll be on starvation mode and you won't get the energy you need throughout the day. Do not skip any meals and your metabolism will increase this will help burn fat faster. You know those people that eat all they want and never gain? It's because they have a high metabolism. Eat a healthy snack in between meals when you're hungry like an apple, granola bar or a yogurt. Do not eat any junk food! You can cheat once a week like on the weekend. Try to eat everything with less calories for example if you eat eggs instead of frying them which has more calories, boil them. You're going to have to tell your parents about this. They play a huge role since they're buying the food and probably preparing it. And lastly don't try TOO hard. Don't even think of it as trying to lose weight let it become a lifestyle choice not a diet. I lost 40 pounds this way within a few months. Good luck on :)1
