I’m thirteen too and I just asked about that same question (: It’s all about calorie intake, Eat less. LESS LESS LESS lol. Your thirteen so, Go to livestrong.com and sign up, (this is what I do) Go to Start tracking at the top > My plate. And enter how much you eat in onr day, the side says no more like 697 caleries for me. So I can drink water, and only thing after that is soymilk. And fruits, and healthy food. Also they have a fitness center link and it is great!
My first love broke up with me suddenly. Need advice what to do now?
Hi. My first love of 18months split up with me about 2.5 months ago.
I first noticed something was wrong after her 21 birthday. She brought up in conversation that she didn’t want me to go to a themepark that she’d invited me to for the coming weekend. She said that her sister-in-law is going now so there will be an even number on the rides. We had abit of a disagreement about the situation and there was tension for the night.
The next 2days, I noticed she wasn’t texting me as much and she was just answering my questions but not making any other conversation. I saw her the night before she was going to the themepark and she seemed off with me, I asked what was wrong and she said if she knew she would tell me.
The next day she went to the themepark,texted me a few times until I got a text later saying that she loves me but she wants some space for a few days. I gave her about 4 days, and then I text her asking if she was ok. She said she was fine and she will ring me on Tuesday (which would have been another 5 days). I said I need to know what’s wrong, shes suppose to tell me everything because I’m her boyfriend. Eventually she said that since she turned 21 she realised that she needs to live, not settle down yet. Also that she wants to sort out her life and get her own friends. She also said that she thinks our relationship is moving to something that’s not there anymore. However the previous month when we were on hol she seemed happy and was even mentioned moving in together and marriage. She didn’t speak to me at all, this was all by text.
We met up on the Tue when she was going to ring me, she seemed friendly with me but seem to avoid talking about our relationship. She’d been meeting up with old friends, even her ex who cheated on her 2years ago, and her old best mate who he cheated on her with. I brought it into conversation about our relationship and said we can get through this together, and she should spend more time with her friends and maybe we should see less of each other and I would help her sort her career out. But she said she wasn’t going to change her mind. A few days later she blocked me and my brothers girlfriend on Facebook, she is still friends with some of my friends and my brother though.
About 10days later a picture appeared on my Facebook that her sister-in-law posted, it was a family party at their house and I noticed she was there as well as her ex but in different photo’s. I was upset, and I probably shouldn’t have done the next thing but I went into her emails as I know her passwords. I found an email she had sent to her ex saying ‘I miss you’ and he had replied saying ‘I miss you too, I hate Monday mornings after our weekends together’. This is 2weeks after we split up. From what I can gather from other emails to other people is she met up with him and 2 other lads on the day after she said she needed space (I think this was the 1st time but don’t know if anything happened). I don’t know anything else,but I went into her emails again before Christmas and she has been saying to friends her life is a mess. I’ve stopped doing this now as I hate myself for doing it.
I text her about 1.5 months ago as she owes me £500 (for a holiday). She brought me £100 and was friendly towards me asking about how I am and hugged me when she left. I asked who brought her and she said the name of her ex but said he’s a mate. I made out I didn’t know anything about the emails. I think I played it cool making out I’m getting on fine but I’m really not at all. I miss her so much and seeing her triggered all my emotions off again.
I text her before Christmas asking when I could have the rest of the money and she just said I know. I haven’t heard anything since and its been over a month. I don’t know how she’s is now, do you think she still thinks about me? We saw each other about 4 days a week for 18 months and then it just suddenly came to an end. People have told me to forgot her and move on, but I can’t seem to do this. They also say make sure I get the money but i’m not really that bothered about it, it just the principle of it. She does earn less than me but I suppose I shouldn’t have paid for the hol for her? Should I contact her about this again?
I just don’t know what to do next, I’ve been going out drinking with friends, joined a gym but she’s there all the time in my mind. Yesterday I went somewhere with friends that I went for weekend with her and all I could think about was memories with her. Theres so many things that reminds me of her because we did alot in 18months.
I’m also very low on confidence at the moment. I’m 22 and my hair is thinning, people seem to drag me down about this too. I’ve been out with friends to clubs etc, but I seem to be a bag of nerves if I get the opportunity to speak to anyone new. Does anyone have any tips ?
Thanks for reading, advice would be great.
Ramesh Klinkert answers:
Firstly let me say that I do feel for you, it’s a hard thing to deal with when the person you care about stops caring back, *initiates bro-hug*.
But I’m going to level with you man, she’s not coming back. And no amount of over-analyzing, or trying to figure out what went wrong, or who was to blame, or what you could have done better, or anything is going to change that fact – she’s gone, and she doesn’t love you anymore.
So what should you do? The only thing you can do – you man up! You say “I’ve had enough of this s**t” and you pick yourself up, dust of the debris, learn from this experience and move on.
This girl, whoever she was, she wasn’t ‘the love of your life’, and don’t ever say that, because if she was, she’d still be with you. Cherish the time you had together but realise there is someone better out there for you. You’re making her into a goddess in your mind and ignoring all the terrible things about her. She does not deserve your thoughts, or your attention, because she abandoned you.
So move on with your life. The fact that you’ve joined a gym is great! Take this opportunity to bulk up, become sexy and transform yourself! Read this for serious fitness advice (http://www.liamrosen.com/fitness.html) and gain some real muscle and strength and your confidence will increase ten-fold. Maybe get some new clothes, a new hairstyle/some facial hair, just a change of image in general. Be an alpha-male and do the right thing here.
As for the money, give her a single, firm command that you need the money by a certain date, and cut her out of your life. Do not message her, do not acknowledge her existence, do not log into her email, nothing. Only contact her if she exceeds the deadline for the cash that you imposed, and then only discuss the finacial issue with her.
Eventually, after you’ve transformed yourself physically and mentally, and after your wombs have been healed by time, and maybe when you’ve met someone new, she’ll perhaps see how amazing you’ve become and come crawling back, and you’ll reject her like she did to you.
Sorry for the length of this response but you went to the effort of typing an essay so I felt you deserved a lengthy response! I hope you can atleast take something from what I’ve written.

•Ur normal weight, for example, for the height of 5’-5”–should be around 65 kgs. —–height of 5’ x 12 + 5” = 65 kgs.
1. 1. Now-a-days, even girls & boys are becoming the victims of hypothyroidism vis-a-vis the interlinked obesity.
2. Here is a remedy: Just press hard Ur right hand palm just below the base of Ur right thumb–with the help of left thumb and vice versa. That points are acupressure point [point no.8 thyroid and point no. 16 –lymph ] for Ur thyroid/parathyroid glands. Similarly U must press Ur big toes in the soles just below the base of big toe. If all these points are painful/tender; then U have to go in for T.S.H., T-3, and T-4 tests to know the real picture. If the results reveal anything, don’t worry. Acupressure techniques & natural remedies can cure it in 45 days.
•Acupressure maps are published not only for diagnosis but also for cure from symptoms of hypo-thyroid. U may study them, discuss with Ur family members, friends and acquaintances to understand the concept, which is very easy to perceive and implement for Ur self and for others.
3. HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST? No Anorexia/No Constipation? No hunger?
Contributing factors – McDonald’s Pizzas, Burgers, KFC’s deep- fried chicken, ghee butter, chocolates, excessive consumption of rice, Calorific value of intake is more than output, etc.
Last week I lost 6 Kgs weight just in 6 days. I’m 64 yrs., young, male, 70 Kgs., to 64 kgs.
4. Acupressure techniques- it is a MUST. To activate each and every internal organ to work up to optimum levels, by purging toxins through natural drainage systems.
5. ACUPRESSURE TECHNIQUES:
. Utility—Blocked energy + toxins shall be moved from all Ur internal organs to purge in the normal drainage system, i.e., urine, feces, sweat, cough, menses[ladies], vomiting and all the organs shall function upto optimal levels
With ur thumb, press ur/his/her palms and soles, wrists and ankles on both sides. Suppose pain is felt while pressing a particular point in the palm/sole, u have to press the surrounding area—just like u r pumping out air from that painful point. The blocked energy in any internal organ, be it lungs, heart, stomach, kidneys, pancreas, liver, etc., shall be released along with toxins if any. As a last point u must press middle part of each palm/sole; so that toxins, if any, shall be excreted/purged through urine without affecting the kidneys.
It should be done in an empty stomach or 2 hours after meals. With this, all the endocrine glands and their hormonal secretions shall be regulated. All internal organs shall function up to optimal levels. Ur entire immune system gets invigorated to produce antibodies.
Remote control Acupressure points given by the God. For Treatment, hard-pressure is to be applied on & around these points with Ur thumb and middle finger.
•6. Aloe Vera Juice, Noni Juice, Wheat grass powder, sprouted seeds, like horse gram, green gram; and ground nuts [all submerged under water overnight]; 1 cup of black tea and 1 cup of green tea. + an apple or a banana or a mango daily & RAITHA/SALADS..
7. Cooked food, salt and baking soda banned from my diet.

i would like to be a model but?
i would like to model but i am 5;1 if that. im skinny. but i also look young for my age, i am 17. is there any way i could still be a good model? i know model are noramlly 5’11 but i have same potential. please help with advice. maybe from models thanks
Ramesh Klinkert answers:
You can apply to be signed to an agency. Applications are made by attending open calls, direct by email to agency offices, or by use of the online application forms found on the agencies` websites. Agencies that ask for an upfront payment are scams. When applying the agencies require head & shoulder shots & full length body images, both front facing & side shots. Wear a fitted plain T shirt & fitted jeans. For the girls, no make-up & hair off the face. However be aware that agencies reject up to 98% of applicants and those that do get signed are not guaranteed work.
Under 18s need written parental permission to model & adult chaperones to all shoots, interviews & casting calls. Parents must ensure work is within government guidelines with regard to hours, pay etc. If applicable a youth work permit will be needed. The law states that only parents can make model agency applications on behalf of anyone under the age of 18.
The only measurement criteria in modelling are for Runway Modelling (adult females 34″-24″-34″ & 5’8-5’11. Adult males 5’11-6’2 waist 30″–35″ chest 36″–40″) and Plus Size Modelling (females 5’8-5’11″, size 10-18 UK). Weight is not important but models must be toned with a healthy BMI.
Other modelling genres do not have measurement criteria.
Modelling genres are :
(All ages) Fitness, Runway, Catalogue, Fashion, Print, Magazine, Advertising, Promotional, Plus Size, Character, Commercial, Editorial, Parts Modelling, Hair.
(All ages but with limitations ie under 18s can only do catalogue style modelling. Over 18s only for provocative images) Swimwear, Lingerie, Underwear.
(Over 18s only) Alternative, Gothic, Topless, Nude – which is broken down into: Glamour nude, Playboy Nude, Concealed Nude, Implied Nude, Art Nude, UK Magazine, US magazine, Continental, Hardcore, Fetish
Portfolios should include images in the model`s chosen genres. Both professional un-edited & clear amateur shots are acceptable. Use images from several photographers. You will need permission from the photographer to include his/her images in your portfolio as they own the copyright. Some photographers will work TFP/TFCD i.e model & photographer give their time to a shoot, no-one is paid but both get to use the images in their portfolios. Some photographers will charge for their work-ensure that the price they quote is all inclusive. Be wary of portfolio studios as often the price does not include the images, only the studio time & the photographer. Some portfolio studios often ignore the 7 day cooling off period & will give the hard sell to entice their customers to pay extortionate prices for poor quality images. For further portfolio information use this link http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AvGEPf9M8SeSVvmFQHObge0gBgx.;_ylv=3?qid=20111027090709AAyPtZw
Beware, 3 out of 4 agencies are scams. The quickest, but not exclusive, way to check is to google the name of the agency followed by the word ‘scam’ ‘review’ and/or ‘fraud’ & to read the results. Be aware that where there are negative reviews, it is not uncommon for the scam agencies to write bogus positive reviews. The link here will take you to further information on how to avoid the scams : http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AsDTRoTHNRL4IUHHebTJHV0hBgx.;_ylv=3?qid=20111214151331AAgCPKC
Genuine agencies receive thousands of applications direct to their offices. They have no need to scout or advertise anywhere on the internet INCLUDING Facebook, FaceParty, Gumtree, Google Ads, YahooAds. To make this clear, when making an internet search on any thing relating to modelling ALL the modelling adverts on the right of the screen, and in the pink or blue boxes at the top of the results list are ALL scams.
Avoid modelling schools, their remit is to make themselves money not to make models. They accept anybody willing to pay the high fees they charge but can give no guarantee of your being accepted by an agency. Many will not bother to pass details to the agencies. You are making them money – why should they pass you on to make money for someone else? You are better off applying to the agencies & if you are accepted they will give you training for free and you know you are not wasting your time or money.
You can also freelance for paid work. Use model networking sites such as Model Mayhem / Purestorm / OneModelPlace to locate photographers in your area that will pay you to model for them. Modelling is paid pro rata. The hourly rates can be high compared with many other jobs, but there is no guarantee of ongoing work. You`ll need to keep up with your messages, be professional, & keep your own paperwork in order for tax purposes. The photographers will have contact details in their own business websites that they will link to their network site profiles.
How should I react to this?
Well, here’s some background. I’ve been best friends with these girls for five years now, but they’ve started acting different lately. Everything was perfect until one of my friends, “Claire”, asked another girl to move to our table at lunch. They started hanging out without me and my other friend, “Megan”, but I wasn’t too upset because me and Megan were closer anyway. Then the girl Claire was hanging out with brought a bunch of other girls into our group, and me, Claire, and Megan all became best friends again. Then over the summer last year Claire got into a really big fight with the girl she brought to our table (over something really stupid- I think it was something about swimming) . A few months later they were sort of friends again, and I thought the girl was nice so I began becoming friends with her too. We never did anything with out Claire or Megan, but I noticed them acting weird a few weeks later. I knew it was because they didn’t want me to be friends with her, but I ignored them. They had several sleepovers without me, and Claire told her mom all off this crap about me that wasn’t true. So her mom calls my mom, and I get grounded from everything for a month and have to delete my facebook and youtube account because of the lies she told her mom. Later they confronted me and told about how mean the other girl was to them, and that was why they were being so weird. I believed them, but later found out it wasn’t true.
About the girls… Claire is the nicest, but she over reacts to EVERYTHING. Sometimes she really bothers me, but other time we get along really well. One example of her being creepy is me got our fitness gram back in athletics which has our weight and body fat on it. She asked to see mine, but I said I wanted to look at it at home, so she tackles me (yes, completely knocks me to the floor) and pins me down while she tries to get, all while laughing. I got away and laughed it off, but I was really freaked out. After class I caught her looking in my backpack for it.
Megan insults everyone a lot, but she can be really nice too. Again, sometimes she makes me really mad with all her insulting, but I can also tell her anything.
So, sometimes me and Megan would take about Claire and weird things she says, but I felt really bad about it and told her we had to stop it when I realized how much Claire trusts us.
They hardly ever complement me as much as random people at school. The other day we had a sleepover and I woke up and heard them talking about me. I don’t know what they where saying, the only thing I heard was Claire telling Megan something I never said. I got really upset (I’m really emotional in the morning ha) and had my brother come pick me up and take me home, but I just told them I didn’t feel good.
I really want to say something to them, but I don’t know what without starting a fight. Please don’t tell me to get new friends because they are nice, but everything is just really crappy lately. I just want to let them know how I feel, because I never really do. At least, according to them I’m “insensitive”, when really, I’m the nicest one of us.
Thanks so much for reading all of this sorry it was so long.
Ramesh Klinkert answers:
“Please don’t tell me to get new friends because they are nice”
Are you kidding me? There is NOTHING nice about what Claire did to you. She got you grounded and made you delete a couple of your internet accounts. Thats NOT nice at all. And until you grow a backbone and start defending yourself, then you are not going to like how people will CONTINUE to treat you. I would TOTALLY cut Claire out of my life for good if she’s going around saying stuff about me that she has NO clue about. You call that friend? You have got to be out of your mind!
Second, It should not matter who you become friends with, Claire and Megan should have respected the fact that you’re friends with the girl that Claire used to be good friends with. Acting weird around you just for that was childish. If they had a problem with her, they should have never brought her up and they should stay away from her. Thats all they could have done. What is it with girls and drama?
“Later they confronted me and told about how mean the other girl was to them, and that was why they were being so weird. I believed them, but later found out it wasn’t true.”
Let THIS be a learning experience. Start thinking and making decisions for yourself instead of being naive enough to listen to anything your so-called friends are saying. For all we know, Claire and this friend could have had a fallout all because of Claire’s big mouth.
I would not want to hang around people who say things behind my back and don’t know how to communicate directly TO me instead of being a coward about it. I really think you need to stop making excuses for people who hurt you. If you do not respect yourself, others will not either. And i really think that if you Really want to stay friends with these girls, you need to sit them down and explain all the things you will not put up with anymore. Explain to them how hurt you are over certain situations and how they talk about you behind your back. If they REALLY are your true friends, they SHOULD understand and will never do it again.
