No Sweat Workout Clothes

Sweating is good when you exercise, but with the right fabrics and fit, you can keep your cool and get a great burn at the same time.

The Best Fabrics

Check the labels when you buy and look for the word "WICKING" and "BREATHE". Synthetic fabrics that breathe and "wick" the sweat away from your skin can help it to evaporate and keep you cool. Look for Powermax(r) and Coolmax(r) fabrics on the label for extra sweat wicking protection. Stay away from Tencel, plastic-based polyesters and cotton. Tencel and polyester don't breathe so they trap moisture and make you hotter. Cotton absorbs sweat, making you feel and look wet.

For Running or Biking

Wear shorts or tight-fitting leggings and avoid flapping wide legs and sleeves that could get in the way as you exercise.

 

For Yoga or Dance Class

Wear stretchy, fitted fabrics, like this tank from Lucy and yoga pants made with Powermax@, a breathable fabric.  ivivva athletica , a member of the lululemon athletica family that focuses on apparel for active girls, features a 4-way stretchy luon®, anti-stink silverescent™ and the made-for-gymnastics, foam-resistant power luxtreme™.

For Team Sports and Racquet Sports

Loose, comfortable clothing that lets you move freely in your clothes for game-winning performance. Nike is the king of sport clothing, and they feature clothes for all ages, shapes and sizes with Dri-FIT fabric and a comfortable fit. SweatyBetty is another company to check out. Their prices are higher, but they focus specifically on sweat protection and style. Many of the clothes are made with SweatTech Light, which is a sturdy, lightweight, moisture wicking fabric. 

 

 

Foot Protection

Sweaty feet don't just stink, they are unhealthy! Wet feet can lead to foot fungus, chafing, scaly feet and blisters. Protect your feet with a good pair of workout socks. Thorlo makes three heights of socks -- crew, mini-crew and micro mini-crew (shown here) -- with Coolmax(r) construction to wick moisture away and cool off feet. Cushoining in the toe and heal offer blister protection. Workout socks cost more than regular socks, but for a good sweaty workout, you'll need 'em!

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.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
