• The absolute best exercise is Walking. Start by measuring your steps. Add a walking or fitness app to your phone or get a counter. Start with 6000 steps per day. Also, cut down on carbs if you can 😊
  • I started on my bike around 10, I would go in one direction and get lost. Believe me nothing gives you more urgency then getting lost. I would find a place that has gatorade and replenish. then go back home in the direction I came from. I did this for years and my legs were like tree trunks. When pushing yourself don't think, will yourself through. A cluttered mind will always stop you. Learn how to meditate for that. My mindset was to be like a stream, filtered and pure and always running. Enjoy

      If you get lost you might be without a gatorade. I'd fill a container of your choice half full with water and freeze it. Fill it with a beverage of your choice before you leave and you will have a cold drink the entire trip.
  • go outside and exercise
    • Linda Joy
      Walking, biking, skating...
  • Take long walks and jog too.

      I heard once walking barefoot on a sandy beach is good for rubbing the callouses off the heels. A little frisbee, maybe?
  • At 16 one still has the notion that refusing to take the steps necessary to solve a problem means the problem should go away on it's own. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. To lose weight you must exercise more and/or eat less or avoid high calorie foods (like junk food). Whining about what you refuse to do is childish and will prevent you from ever resolving the issue.

      And at 16 I, personally, would not listen to people like you if you have no positive feedback to give. Why don't you yell at so kids to get off your lawn gramps
    • OC Joe
      Regardless, you need a wake up call or you should stop complaining.
    • Linda Joy
      At 16 you should be open to advice from everyone. You know very little and you will soon realize this guy is spot on. But you can continue to complain and remain where you are or you can get off your butt go walking and make a difference for you in your life regardless of where the idea comes from. And I've never seen OC Joe as an old man yelling at neighborhood kids to get off his lawn. Thanks for the laugh guys!
  • Sounds like you know what you have to do. You know your output has to exceed your input. So, saying that, if you want resistance/weight training at home and have $30, you can get excellent resistance bands, though you can go cheaper. Also, plenty of exercises that you don't need to buy anything... google them. Cardio? Walking, running, finding some stairs you can climb, biking.
    • Linda Joy
      All good answers!
  • First I challenge the idea you can't exercise at either of your parents. Unless they forbid you doing it which sounds like child abuse, unless they're just saying don't do it over my bed while I'm sleeping! lol. I'd like to suggest a British show that shows people why they are not losing weight. You may want to check your sauces and dressings first. One woman on the show was adding 300 calories to her 'healthy salads' with mayo alone! Another guy was drinking 2-2 1\2 diet sodas before hitting the 'larder' for a snack binge. Another woman was taking in several thousand calories (three sandwiches) on a lunch binge, but didn't realize how much she was adding with sauce packets and condiments. And Joe is right you need to stop making excuses and start making strides. I decided one day to set a timer on my computer for every 30 minutes to get up and move. I had specific goals but you make your own. Then when the 30 second commercial comes on when I'm playing solitaire I do arm circles because my arms are weak after being injured. I do ankle circles sometimes and should incorporate them as well. So every time a commercial comes on get up and clean something or do some kind of stretching. Drink more water, add low calorie filling stuff to your salad like bean sprouts, celery, carrots, cabbage, and maybe some fiber so your gut can get cleansed, like ground flax seed or chia seed (which can also be sprouted) try rubs or marinades instead of sauces on your fish and chicken. Try more vinegar and less salt. More lemon and less oil. Take away your 'cheat days' until you see progress. Add heat to your dishes (salads and sandwiches as well) you will be less likely to overeat. And as an added bonus it will keep your nasal passages open!
  • I lost 45 pounds in one month by cutting out ALL sodas...It's not easy but it is effective!!! Sorry, I missed your last sentence. Try cutting out the junk on Thursdays & Sundays. Every little bit helps.
  • As long as you burn more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. There are hundreds of ways to approach that. You could eat less, you could move around more, you could boost your metabolic rate. Probably best to try to manage all three of those if you can. Exercise doesn't have to be going to the gym. You could take up martial arts and learn something useful whilst training your body and your mind to be stronger. You could go hiking. You could walk more. You could just move around more. Do you have any hobbies or interests? Maybe incorporate those into something that simply gets you moving around more. Don't think of it as exercising and instead just think about being more active. Like, if you like playing video games, enable motion controls or try some games with more active elements. If you like music, learn drums or something that moves your body more. Maybe take up biking or skating or surfing or whatever sounds fun. Going to the gym won't help you long term unless you enjoy doing it anyway.
  • There are many chair exercises on YouTube.
  • Can always do step ups, if you have any steps in garden, or dance in the house. Walking is one of best things, bike riding is also good, stick your headphones in and tune people out.
  • Walk, alot. It is free and easily accomplished nearly anywhere. Once you have walked your way into better shape, run, often to build up endurance. Pushups alongside your bed on the floor of your room morning and night will bulk up your chest and arms. Situps will strengthen your abs and your back. There is alot you can do alone and without any equipment at all, if you just start in with it. 6/3/23
