The lazy days of summer are fun at first, but you might find yourself bored out of your mind by mid summer. Gaming with your buddies is great, but not only will your parents not let you do this all day long, you probably should find other activities.
Why not consider a weight loss camp? You might be able to get away for a bit and have a lot of fun! You might even find that by summer's end, you're seeing someone brand new in the mirror!
You love your mom and dad, but do you want to spend every minute with them? Probably not. A residential weight loss camp let's you take a little break from your parents and offers you the freedom that comes with independence.
I spent part of a summer when I was 12 in a college dorm for band camp. My roommate and I had a lot of fun setting up our space. It was almost like having an apartment. Well, it was small, but hey! I enjoyed having the responsibilities of taking care of my room and things because it was my choice. Nobody was telling what to do.
You do have to show up on time for classes and exercise programs at weight loss camps, but it seems so much easier then listening to your mom and dad tell you to get up or hurry up! Weight loss instructors are more knowledgeable about your weight issues than your parents. This makes the experience a little easier on you.
Starting Out Fresh
Would you like to wow your buddies on the first day of school? Kids need to lose weight (or grow into it) more slowly than adults, but you'll still see a difference by the end of the summer. Your friends will probably notice even more because they haven't watched a gradual change like you have. They saw you the last day of school and then you worked hard for two or three months to become healthier. You might even hit a growth spurt and really slim down in appearance!
You'll also feel more confident because you'll be making healthier choices on your own accord. When you're confident, you feel more comfortable meeting new people and trying new things.
Your weight issues will become less of a problem and because of that, you won't be worrying or focusing on your weight. Instead, you'll be on a healthier path and realize that someday you'll be of normal weight.
Did I mention that weight loss camps are fun? They are! Food is not entertainment, but that might be what you rely on now because you haven't been taught how much fun it is to exercise and be active. A weight loss camp can give you some great ideas and teach you some fun things about exercise. This is important because if you don't find exercise fun, you probably won't do it. The instructors want you to choose activity over sitting around!
All you have to lose is weight and you have all of the above to gain from a weight loss camp. Ask your parents to check out a weight loss camp in your area today!
