Hi everyone. I'm new here. To give everyone a bit of background information I am a 14 year old girl trying to lose weight safely and effectively, most of all. I am a freshman in high school and it is hard to be the heaviest one in my group of friends. I have tried to lose weight before unsuccessfully. I have tried Weight Watchers...that didnt end up working too well...and i tried the south beach diet...i didnt have enough self control for that. Basically I'm just looking for a plan that is not sooooo strict. If anyone has any suggestions that would be fantastic and I would really appreciate it. I am 5' 9.5" and I have always been tall. I weigh aprox. 177lbs currently...i lost a few over the summer. My heaviest weight was 185lbs. I hope to someday be about 158lbs. I have no will power whatsoever but am working on it. I also never want to exercise...If anyone has some fun-ish program that works for them I would love to know about it. I have a YMCA in my community and wish i used it more. If anyone has any tips I would love to hear from you! thanks so much! This community should really be the support boost i need!
