Dear Dish-It: My BFFs Forgot My Bday!

Dear Dish-it,


All of my best friends forgot my birthday, should I be worried?


Help95


Dear Help95,


Hmm...that's a tough one. Did your friends know that it was your birthday? Sometimes we think everyone should remember our special days, but the fact is we all need a reminder once in a while. If your friends are busy and you didn't say anything, like "Hey, guys, my birthday is coming up next week. I'd love to have you all over for a party at my house on Saturday to celebrate!" then you can't really blame them for not remembering. I know it seems like it should be easy for BFFs to remember each other's birthdays, but just cause your besties forgot doesn't mean they don't like you anymore...


Be a Birthday Ambassador

If it's REALLY important to you that your friends remember your birthday each and every year, then it's going to be up to you to make that message LOUD and CLEAR! How do you do that? By handing out calendars to your besties that have your birthday circled in red pen? NO! Just the opposite...you have to take the lead in making sure that each and every one of your BFFs' birthdays are as special as can be, so that when your big day rolls around your friends will think, "Oh, she was so nice to us on OUR birthdays, let's do everything we can to make HER day extra special!" Of course, you shouldn't do nice things for people just because you want something in return. You'll see that if you treat other people, like your best friends, the way you want to be treated, they'll likely turn around and do exactly that!


Princess Party Planner

Why do you need your friends to remember you on your birthday anyway? YOU should be YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND and throw yourself the biggest party ever on your special day! Don't be afraid to go all out and (with your mom and dad's help, of course) plan a bash fit for a queen! After all, your birthday only rolls around once a year - might as well spoil yourself (and invite all your friends along for the ride)!

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
