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.
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…
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.
