Hi, I'm 14 years old and about 5 foot 3, I started a diet and eat healthy foods. I started out a 153.4 pounds. 12 days later I was 146.6. I weighed myself today and it says I'm 147. It doesn't seem like a lot but I'm extremely depressed now and I don't want t eat. I watch all my calories, run 2.50 miles a day and always burn about 500 calories. It cant be muscle because all I do is go on the treadmill. My parents say they've noticed a difference but I don't see it. I'm really sad now and want to give up on everything. I've been working so hard everyday and now this happened. I don't want to be fat anymore but I feel like this isn't working at all. I don't no what to do.
I was overweight when I was your age too. It's so frustrating - I remember feeling like nothing worked for me either.
But first realize that you have lost 6-7 pounds in two weeks! That's a lot of weight! Some people will lose one or two pounds per week. Second, even though you aren't lifting weights, you are gaining muscle mass on the treadmill. Finally, give yourself at least 2 months to see a real difference. It turns out that really fast changes tend not to stick. Go about it gradually - you will get there!!!
