I’m 13 years old and I keep gaining weight. My mom doesn’t help me she wouldn’t even take me to the gym. So I’m on my own and I’m going to be going to middle school in like 1 month and a few days. I need to know how to drop at least between 20-30 pounds before I go. Is that possible if so how? And I’m trying to eat healthy but it just doesn’t work for me. Please help I don’t want to get made fun of this year! Alexis. [via Ask Questions]
Is it possible to lose 20 pounds in 1 month? Is it possible to lose 30 pounds in 1 month? No and no. You do not have enough time to lose 30 pounds. Do not get me wrong, I am not saying that you cannot lose 30 pounds. It is certainly possible to lose 30 pounds or even more weight. People lose more than 100 pounds without surgery. It is just that you need more than 1 month to lose 30 pounds.
Since you are only 13, you have to lose weight under your mom’s supervision. If she does not know how to help you, she can go to your doctor and ask for help. She can also make an appointment with a certified nutritionist and ask him or her to help you find a good, balanced diet for you.
