Simon's Blog - April 6, 2004

April 6, 2004 Well, since I last blogged, the crap has really hit the fan around here. So, I only got a stupid D on that dumb science test, even though when my mom quizzed me I had all the answers. It's just stupid. My dad lost it on me, and then my mom lost it on him. And then, after a night of yelling, my teacher sent a note home for my parents the next day. Yeah. Great.

Of course I looked at the note before my parents did, duh! My teach wanted my 'rents to call her which made me a basket case all afternoon until my mom came home. When mom finally came home, she went up to her room and called my teach - and didn't come down for almost an hour! When she did come back down, she just smiled and told me to relax.

Dad came home and they holed up in their room again for, like, half an hour. At that point we were all starving and Joey got angry at me for holding dinner up. (That kid lives for food). Dad told Miguel to go order pizza and he and mom sat me down in the kitchen. It was, like, the most dramatic, weird thing ever. I felt like my parents had suddenly become secret agents or something, like those Spy Kid 'rents. Mom, told me that on Wednesday (tomorrow) I'm not going to class, but I should go right to the guidance counselor's office. I am gonna get tests done, or something. She and Dad were wicked nice all night and even took us all out for Ben and Jerry's after dinner - which never happens on a school night. Mom is taking the day off work tomorrow to go with me to the guidance counselor's office.

I am completely weirded out. Do they think I am a moron or something? What is going on here? What tests am I taking? Plus, do you know how uncool it is to spend the day with the guidance counselor? Only weird kids do that! What if Kara finds out? She'll totally stop liking me - and who could blame her? And things were going really well with her, too. I know I should chill and just see what happens but it's totally spazzing me out - especially the fact that dad is Mr. Nice Guy all of a sudden.

Wish me luck,
Simon

    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.
