The Unhealthy Fight Against Fat

There are over 11 million overweight children in America.
Dealing With Weight Issues

CliffNotes

The latest cure-all miracle pill on the market is Edita Kaye's Skinny Pill for Kids. It's promoted as a weight-loss pill concocted from all-natural ingredients - and they claim it's a totally safe way to shed those excess pounds. The only problem is, the Skinny Pill for Kids has never actually been tested on kids. So how do we know they're safe?

It often takes years, if not decades, to realize the full effect of new drugs. Even natural substances have been found harmful - sometimes years after they had been on the market. Edita Kaye has been working on the Skinny Pill for Kids for just six months.

Edita Kaye slams professional health experts on her Web site, saying that their advice of eating healthier and getting active just isn't realistic. Is it just me, or are people looking more and more for the quick fix? Are we so opposed to changing our lifestyle of fried food and video game marathons, that we are willing to take mystery drugs from any one who will sell them to us?

What do you think about the Skinny Pill for Kids? Is it a good solution to obesity in America or just another marketing ploy to get people's money?

Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
