You can try getting those ensure drinks and everytime you get hungry then drink one of them it will fill you up!!! Remember it is on the inside is what counts too!!! You are at that age that this happens to!! You will grow out of it!! My son was kinda big and now he has gotten taller and thinner as he hit the age 11 so be patients and remember stick and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt you!!! I know some kids can be really mean and you can't let that bring you down because someday they are going to have the same problem and  then they will be sorry for what they are doing!!!! Cheer up sweety!!! Give me a shout if you would like ok???!!

I'm in year 7 too and a bit bigger than the other girls and I'm not exactly popular either, but I'm trying not to let it get to me. I'm eating as healthy as I can but I don't mind slipping up sometimes, I'm only young so who cares if I don't have a "perfect" body. if you don't feel happy with yourself (and I'm not saying I do) just be as healthy as you think YOU can be and that's all you can do. I know it sounds cheesy but we all come in different shapes and sizes so as long as you think your doing the best you can for your body , just get on with life, because those girls aren't worth it if they are going to treat you that way. don't worry , we are all in the same boat, and it will only make stronger xxx

The way to become skinny is to sustain a caloric deficit over time until you reach your desired weight.


Your body requires a certain amount of calories to maintain it's current
weight (body weight in lbs x 15) if you were 150 pounds, that would be
150x15 = 2,250 calories/day.

To lose 1 pound you need to be in a deficit of 3,500 calories.  So if
you ate 500 calories less than this 2,250 each day (1,750 cals/day) you would
lose 1 pound each week.

Couple that with 1 hour of cardio each day (500 calories burned/h on
average)'ll burn another 1 pound a week.

So that outlines a plan right there to lose at least 2 pounds/week, and by the way 1-2 pounds/week is a good rate of loss.

If you are really overweight or even obese, it will be easier to create a larger deficit safely and lose even more weight each week.

But bottom line here, do the above, and don't let your calories dip below 1,200/day and be will get there.

If you encounter any hurdles/plateaus..increase your cardio intensity/duration, decrease your caloric intake, or try cutting out carbs for 1-2 days (eating only lean meat/veggies).
