1Hey Coach,
All of the people in my school call me ugly and fat, except my boyfriend. He says I'm perfect - but would be even more perfect if I dropped 20 pounds. The problem is I'm 5'6" and only weigh 135 pounds. I always thought my weight was pretty normal, but I guess not. I tried losing weight a few months ago, and it worked (I took off 15 lbs!) but then I started feeling weak and I even fainted in gym! I've since put the weight back on and the teasing came back! I know if I keep the weight off I'll be fairly attractive but how do I do it without feeling weak and fainting?

Hey serpia

You're best move is to ignore those dorks at school and dump your boyfriend, and talk to a doctor. The other kids at school aren't medical experts, while your doctor will be able to tell you if you really need to lose weight, based on your age, body type, height and mass. A doctor, or maybe even your coach, will also be able to give you some eating and exercise advice to help you reach a healthy weight safely. (But, to be honest, I'm pretty sure you aren't overweight right now). Either way, there's no point pushing yourself at the gym or overexercising until you feel weak or pass out. It's unsafe and will lead to bigger health problems in the long run.

As for your boyfriend, give him a warning - either he changes his attitude or gets dumped.He should be beating up or threatening the other kids who are teasing you at school. Good boyfriends stand by their girl and stick up for them when they are being picked on, even if it means taking some heat themselves. That's certainly more supportive than telling you that "you're perfect, but would be more perfect if you'd drop 20 pounds." You should also talk to a teacher or a school counselor about the other kids who are teasing you. Telling someone that they're fat or ugly is a form of bullying which shouldn't be tolerated at school.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
