Patient discussion about making weight

Q. how should i treat people who make fun at me because i am over weight?

A. I fully agree with Emma37, though I guess you wouldn't have brought it up if it would not have bothered you... There is no way to make someone "not care about what people say" I guess but you can find way to feel better about yourself to improve that issue- either try to loose weight- by consulting a professional of course (changing diet and doing lots of sports), or go see someone who will help you improve your self-esteem, psycologists are great, I wish everyone could afford them casue we all sure need them...

Q. Is there any exercise that I can do which will improve my fitness and will not make me lose more weight? I am a 17 year old girl, and I want to start exercising. I am concerned as I am underweight and I do not want to lose any more weight. Is there any exercise that I can do which will improve my fitness and will not make me lose more weight? . Also I have done some research on various exercises but was confused with the diet pattern. I do understand that exercising and diet have to be balanced and I would like to hear from someone who can suggest me the best.

A. Maya, you can relax :) if you are under weighted and you'll start exercising regularly it won't make you disappear... physical activity will increase your weight. that is because you don't have much fat cells to burn and you muscles will grow bigger and stronger. so don't worry about it - every sport will be good for you.
