I have a little story to go with my reasons to ry and lose weight, so bear with me XD
When I was younger, I was quite skinny, and I used to do ballet. I was much like my sister, who is now so skinny most people thin kshe is anorexic. However, I stopped doing ballet, and then I became friends with this girl.
Now, I'm not knocking her mother's way of bringing her up, but she used to sit us outside on the curb with a packet of sweets. And ~I would eat those sweets, because she had bought them for us, and I would feel ungrateful
if I didn't eat them. Of course, at that time I had no idea about calories and stuff liek that (I was was probably 5/6 at the time) So I did this for a while.
I think the first tiem I noticed I was bigger then the other girls was when I bought my first bra aged 9. I mean, I wasn't HUGE, and I was an early starter, but I could tell I was bigger then the other girls. I did start to diet and exrecise (Unfortunatly, I was to oscared ot askm y mum for help with losing weight, so I looked up stuff on the internet) I decided at one point to be anorexic, but I terrified my self that I was going to die and stopped that about a day after I began. I was probably 10/11 at that time.
When I got to year 6, my skin started to break out REALLY bad. I know it's absolutly gross, but I stopped washing my face for about 3 months, for no reason. I have really sensative skin, plus exema, plus acne. It sucks.
I then got really upset about my skin and weight, and tried dieting again throughout year 6.
Skip forward about 5 months. I was haivng a super hard time being bullied for my skin, so I binged a bit. Even my best friends were calling ym pizza face. Which is hard, y'know? In the end, my mum found out, and after alot of tears, she sent me to councilling.
After that, I took up dancing. I lost LOADS of weight, but then people at school found out about my danincg, and again, I stopped and went back into my shell.
All my hard work dancing (About 30mins a day) was ruined.
I'm now in year 10 (14 years old) And I'm ready to try this weight loss thing again. At the moment, I am walking as much as I can (this evening I walked upto the woods near my house and back, about an hours walk, 30 min uphill (KILLS YOUR THIGHS!) and 30 min back down again. I['m also trying to eat more of a ballanced diet, and eating breakfast. I try to have goals to get to, but I don't want a thinspiration.
I think my weight has soemthing to do with my skin, so if I slim down, maybe my skin will get better. I don't know.
I wish I knew my weight so I could post it, lol XD
Does anyone have any easy exercises I can do at home without buying anything? Ihave hardly any money as it is.
(Wow, that went on for ages, lol)
About the spots, Just start drinking water more.
If you ever think that you feel like having a can of Coke, stop yourself and think of your skin (Okay a can of coke every once in awhile is okay but Water is best for your skin and it will help with losing weight)
When you wash, use just a normal bar of soap, it will dry out the skin and help clear them up.
Also, try exposing your skin to the sun, I dont mean go and get sun burned (Because thats what I did and it got so burned that it was slightly worrying)But the sun will help dry them out as well. I recently did this because I have had back acne for quite some time and it had made me so ashamed that I never wore tank tops or anything like that for a little over 5 years, so I exposed it to the sun little by little during this summer and my spots are basically gone! (Just dont go burning yourself, or you will get scars an everything and it could be dangerous.)
I also did that same as you when I was a kid, I just stopped washing for a few months, but when your a kid your attitude is like "Why should I wash?, whats the worst that could happen?" Haha.
But youve got to remmeber aswell, your in the middle of puberty so spots are to be expected, some kids are more affected by it than others, but as you get older your skin will improve.
As for excercises that you can do at home, Im no expert with this, there are guys on here who will know exactly what to say but like I said Im not sure ^^;
Good luck though!
(Sorry for any spelling mistakes and whatnot, im kind of tired XD)
