Dear Dish-It, I Can't Stop Eating!

Dear Dish-It,

Normally I don't eat that much, but lately I've been craving food and stuffing myself like a horse. I don't want to gain weight because this is a situation I want to get out of. It's so weird because this is sooo not normal for me. Any tips on good exercises that would be helpful?

Dear xox_candygirl_xox,

Don't freak out just yet about your new eating patterns. Right now your body is going through some massive changes and because it's working so hard, it requires a lot more fuel than before. If you're hungry, you should eat because your body needs those calories to keep it functioning properly. Weight gain shouldn't be too much of a concern for you as long as you remember to eat healthy and keep up with regular exercise - you're supposed to get at least 30 minutes of activity in a day. When you're craving a snack, reach for some carrot and celery sticks or throw together some homemade trail mix and avoid munching down on pizza pockets and guzzling pop. This way, your body will get the necessary nutrients it needs and you will stay trim and healthy. Once you've made your way through puberty (which could take a few years!), your appetite will most likely get back to normal.

    A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

    A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
