Question about food

Hi guys!

I'm fifteen years old and weigh almost 150 pounds. It's not as bad as it could be, at my age, I do know that; but I have been overweight and unhappy about what I am for a long, long time. But I want to change.

I went to Curves today and plan on registering by next week. It seems like a positive place and I can't wait to start.

My goal is to lose roughly forty pounds. I wanted to lose this by May. I don't know if that is possible but the instructor at the Curves I went to today said that if I follow everything, I can lose that in around five - six months. I'm in no rush, and I realize that I either will weigh more or less than I do now by May; since I am serious about this now, there is no way I'm going to keep digging myself this grave.

I have help now with the working out. But not with the food. I have no idea what to eat. I was told to eat whole grain food, nothing white; eat fives times a day, small portions, etc etc. But does anyone have any food plans they have? I definitely don't want to stick to the same thing and I can't live on bread and fruits for the rest of my life.

So any sites, or food ideas would really help me a lot.

Thanks and good luck to all of you. :] ♥

Welcome!

Here are a couple of sites that I have found helpful/ inspirational:

http://www.stumptuous.com/cms/displaysection.php?sid=4#12
I really love this site because it offers straight forward gimmick free info. This is healthy. This is why. This is stupid. This is why. etc. etc. I've given you the "eating" section, but surf around on the site for other worthwhile info.

I have part 4 (at the bottom of this link ) on my refrigerator. its a good what to eat summary.


http://www.fitday.com/
also, I find a food journal is vital to keeping track of what you've eaten(especially for beginners) so I'd either do this by hand in a journal, or I recommend this site for tracking. You can also enter weightloss goals and nutritional goals as you see fit.

Just remember that HEALTHY weightloss takes time! But it sounds like you're off to a good start. Good luck!
