I've always been kinda big for my age. I have a large frame and I am athletic, so I am not skinny, but not fat. I decided I wanted to lose some weight...and I've lost like 15 pounds over the Summer. I'm happy about that, and now I'm in the "desirable" weight range. (even though I'm not sure I really believe in that, it can't be a bad thing to be there) The thing is, I really don't know what I should be eating to keep losing weight, without hurting myself. Does anyone know some good sites or anything of that sort to go to? I'm sort of scared I'm becoming a bit anorexic, and that's not what I want.
Thanks!!

Gah girls these days keeps worrying about being fat. If you've lost 15 pounds then that should be good enough. I think you should just keep it at that and eat healthy. As long as you're not a sumo then lossing 15 pounds should be good enough.


Gee... I feel so unprotected without Prince Shanan and his Holy Sword...

Hey Lexi. Good for you for thinking of your health! We want you guys around and healthy for a good long time.

In any event, in my experience, the best thing to do to maintain weight healthfully is to figure out how many calories you are burning each day, and then eat enough to take IN that many calories, not more or less.

In addition, if you're eating a well-balanced diet or proteins, carbs, fats and vegetables/fruits, without having too muchy of any one thing, you should stay pretty healthy.

Overall, anorexics tend to eat only the minutest amounts imaginable, obsess about food night and day, and never, ever think they are thin enough. That's a very broad generalization, but those things are usually true of most.

More than anything, if you understand food as a support system for your body and mind, rather than an enemy out to get you, or as a substitute for other emotional things, it's hard to really go wrong.
