Hi Confused, I think Karen is right about eating fruits and veggies to help with your diet. They are good for you and fill you up a lot. Melon is very good, it is filling and has very few calories. As someone who has lost weight in the past 6 months I know it is not easy to do. There are many books you could read on healthy eating and there are online diet programs. Also, not mentioning any one specific group, there are many dieting groups where you can go to a weekly meeting and have a once a week weigh in to help you stay on track. Loads of info on the iternet. Your parents are not helping you by commenting. Try to ignore them. They should be helping to raise your self esteem. I imagine you are a very pretty girl but you need to think of yourself in a more positive way. Don't compare yourself to a friend who is taller and weighs more. Her weight is most likely in proportion to her height. If you are serious about losing some weight cutting yourself to half a meal a day won't work. You will end up being so hungry you will binge. Arm yourself with good info on eating healthy and getting some exercise every day. It doesn't have to be too strenuous and joining a gym is not necessary. A good 30 min walk is excellent exercise and it will help improve your mood. Exercise raises the endorphins in your brain so you feel better. And once you establish the habit you will really enjoy it. It took me 6 mos. to lose 35 lbs and I did it the slow way a lb or 2 a week and I have kept the weight off. You are a good person and I don't want you to let negative people stand in your way and make you feel bad. Keep posting - I have confidence in you that you can do whatever you want. Take care.

You are still leasing other people words that hurt you. I know you most likely feel like they are ganging up on you. What types of foods do you eat? Why don't you have some fresh and juicy fruits?
Just wanted to update you about what's going on. I'm leaving for FL with my mom tomorrow morning for grad school. My mom is going to be staying with me for a week til I get settled in. I'm excited for a new beginning but also nervous I'll fail a class again.
My ex and I are talking again. We've been talking for about a month now. He wants me to visit him sometime soon but I can't afford it. I'm on loans. I paid for his plane ticket to come see me in grad school last yr. He paid for my dinners, clothes and drinks. I think it's his turn to pay for a plane ticket if he wants to see me. So I told him I can't afford it. He said he couldn't either. I said well I guess I can't see you til you can afford it. Then he didn't say anything. A few days later I texted him asking him if he can accept my friend request on facebook. We're friends but he still hasn't accepted my friend request on facebook. I know he doesn't have internet at home but he goes online at work and he does check facebook. He didn't respond after I texted him.. I waited awhile about 1 hr..he didn't respond. I texted him again asking him if he can accept my friend request..no answer. Then I called him 30 min later..no answer. He finally responded saying that "I'm back to my old self again and he might accept my friend request sometime." He also said he wants me to backoff for awhile and not talk to him for a few days. This happened on Wednesday night. I started crying. I left him alone til Fri night I texted him once asking him if we could talk tomorrow night (meaning tonight) ..no response. This morning (Saturday) I texted him asking if we could talk tonight..no answer. An hr later I asked again..no answer.. 2 hrs later I asked if we could talk tonight or if he wanted more space. He finally answered and said he'll be ready to talk some time mid next week. And that if I text him between today and then he'll block me. So I didn't text him. He's done this so many times before. This whole month he didn't mind talking to me everyday. Now all of a sudden he's like bothered by talking every day. My counselor thinks it's a control tactic he's using because I didn't give in to his request for me to pay the plane ticket. He thinks I should put the ball in his court and not contact him mid next week (eventhough he'll be ready to talk then). What should I do? None of my other friends put limits on me. But then again, I don't text them again if they don't respond to me. Advice please!

Please remember you are a wonderful person and you deserve happiness. Don't selttle for 2nd best when there is some out there you will meet and you will know how great you are togehter. You won't have to worry about emails and the instablity of the relationship.
Be happy in Florida.........and catch a wave for me. I am land locked here in the midwest.
