|Young Calorie Counters||sleep deprivation and weight?||Nov 22 2009
I really get what you mean. You sorta just laid out my own bedtime here too.
I also go to one of those rigorous competitive high schools. You have to like, take a test to get into the school, and then you're surrounded by all these ridiculous, highly competitive genius maniacal teenagers with no social lives. And then you find yourself losing it too. But thats besides the point..
Anyhow, I completely agree. When I was losing weight during the summer a few years ago, I felt more healthy, energetic, well-rested.
Nowadays, yes, I feel like I do burn more calories by walking around so much and being so tired. Sometimes i just feel way too sleep to eat. And when I do eat, I feel like thats just sitting in my stomach, staying there as weight. Its just really unhealthy over all.
I dont think I have a solution. But I sleep way more than reccomended during the weekends. I went to sleep yesterday (saturday) at 9. I usually go to sleep on weeknights at around 2:30 or 3. I woke up at 10 AM today (a sunday), and then went back to sleep at 1 and woke up again at 4.
I feel like I caught up on alot of sleep this weekend. I feel like it just sort of KIND of balances stuff out for me. Cause within the ratio, I get enough sleep on mondays. Sometimes, in the middle of the week, I just sleep on my two-hour commute. Or I get home from school and take a two hour nap, so that I can afford staying up till 3 doing hw.
Good luck. =.= I hear college is much easier after graduating from one of these schools..

I believe many people would agree with me when I say that thats inherently unhealthy for a goal.
I've heard it said by someone on these CC forums that the rule of thumb is 100 for 5 feet, and then 5 pounds for every extra inch.
An ideal weight for you would probably be 120-140.
I don't know how old you are, but either way, that would be ideal for you.
103-104 would be good for someone from 4'10-5 feet.
Seriously. And this site is about staying healthy..
What I'd suggest is to up your calorie intake so that you don't accidentally fall into starvation mode (which may screw up your metabolism), and instead of just dieting.. excersize.
Afterall, muscle weighs more than fat does, but its also leaner. You want to get and stay healthy, afterall, not just rule your life by a number.
As for how long it would take.. CC has its own counter estimate, so you can punch in those numbers and figure it out.. but seriously, 106 for 5'4 is on the lowside in itself.

dnrothx, what exactly is that supposed to mean? O___o;
I fabricated an identity for myself? Well, I certainly could have, but what use would it be for me to be admired on an online forum anyway? It isnt as if I am striving for admiration from people I will never encounter in my life. im simply defending myself against presumptuous people.
(the parenthesis are just notes)
Filial love, platonic love, and
romantic love allow people to believe that they are needed by someone--
that they would be missed. Perhaps love is truly the thing we are most
dependant on in order to survive; it keeps us from feeling lonely and
it gives us a reason to keep living. In a world where you are small,
lost, detached, and alone, what reason would you have to keep living?
This dependancy on love and companionship is an evolutionary result of
man's psychological development; a need to attain happiness and
consequently fill a void. It is said that love equates happiness; any
poet may say that a life without love is not truly living. This is
under the assumption that living constitutes happiness, and that
consequently, an unhappy life devoid of love will end unfullfilled.
However, this definition, created by humans, is simply to prove the
significance of a four letter word having been created to identify a

I'm sort of offended by your whole comment, but you've the right to do what you please anyhow.
Just to let you know, I finished my essay by the third response I got on CC. This post was no technical use to me. And it wasnt really an essay either-- not a really big fraction of my grade. It was more like a homework-response essay. Not a Formal Literary Essay, nor a Term Paper.
I just thought itd be an interesting discussion.. so I decided to pose the question. From the recent responses, i certainly think its amusing so far.
haha, in any case, i took a completely different route with my "essay" anyhow, if anyone would like to read it, i'll post it up.
i wonder how my teacher will grade such a cynical response O___o;
oh, and to nycgirl, i was certainly not asking for answers from CCers. It was just a thought for a discussion (I didnt take any of the few suggestions i had gotten anyhow, despite how awfully amusing they've been to read). English is my strongest subject, and I'm currently the only one I know with an A+ in this class.. I take writing pretty seriously, and I wouldnt ask someone to do my homework for me, mainly because I wouldnt trust them. Oh, and considering your sn is nycgirl, just so you know.. i go to a selective high school in NYC, so an A+ isnt exactly simple thing to get when you're surrounded by elitists. I dont mean to sound like a braggart, but I'm pretty offended. Of course, your assumptions were justified, I suppose.
anyone want me to post my response up? ;]

We have to explain what love is, in OUR opinion and then comment on Romeo & Juliet's love in comparison.
|Young Calorie Counters||For love or money?||Nov 09 2008
because love comes and goes; consistantly inconsistant and unreliable.
its possible to live a life alone, but its not possible to live one without any source of nourishment. love may nourish your soul, but it wont fill your stomache.
im being realistic... =.=;
|The Lounge||"when i grow up" fancy dress ideas||Nov 09 2008
i wanted to be a lawyer up until i was about 11.. thats cause i wanted to go to Yale.
i was 11 when i realized that Yale isnt simple to either get into nor afford. and that theres a whole technique to debating and how many years it takes, and how much money it takes to get a good job or make a successful firm cause it takes money to get a good degree, regardless of your grades.
...sounds pretty &$*$)@# hard.
so yeah. now im 14, and all i want to do is be successful when i grow up..
to a party like that, i would just carry huge sacks of fake cash.. o__o;

Ohh I really like how you dress! ^__^
This is what I wore to orientation day, 9th grade.
haha, not a "freshman" though, cause I go to a 7-12 school =P
I find it absurd when people overdo it and dress up way too much just to impress everyone on the first day back..
So I dressed down, just for the occasion. =)
Brown tank top, from H&M
Gray 3/4 sleeved Be-Bop ruffled-front sweater.
Earnest Sewn designer jeans #57; dark wash.
Messenger bag with stars on the front (my first name means star)
Black sandals w/.... chains on it? from Pacsun.
I really like looking at different people's clothing styles, Its so interesting!
|The Lounge||Remembering 9/11||Sep 13 2008
I was in second grade at the time, but I remember it vividly.
I could see the smoke coming out from the World Trade Center from the windows from my classroom windows.
I'm pretty surprised to see all these responses with people saying they were dismissed early..
I live IN the city, and we weren't dismissed early, although many kids were picked up early from school.
I remember for days afterwards the streets were all empty and stuff, it took ages to kill the fire and stuff. They had cut off all MTA transportation, and I remember watching footage of people actually WALKING the fah-reaking bridges to queens and brooklyn. And those were only the daring ones. Everyone else was too scared to walk into the building or stay on the street, but much less get on a bridge that week.

|Young Calorie Counters||age 14 anyone??!||Aug 31 2008
I'm 5'0, lol i look like I'm younger than 14 so i guess it suits me, and in the morning I'm 95, but I'm late 97ish by the end of the day. Haha.
My highest weight was 104, so I lost around 7 pounds..? yay. =]
I want to lose some of the fat of I've got (haha, i AM 96 pounds of pure fat), and BULK UPP with some muscle!
I dont have any specific weight goals, but I would love to get taller, and not go past 101 pounds until I have enough muscle to run an 8 minute mile nonstop.

hahaaa, my typical afterschool "snack" was just abouuut anything i wanted.
like going to the deli around the corner from the subway station after school let out with my friends, and gorging on sugary drinks, COOOOOOOOKIES (finished a whoole packet of chips ahoy within 40 minutes!), bagels, cereal cereal ceral, cookies cookies, mutiple sandwiches.
aha. i have NO clue as to how the freak my highest weight is only 104. xD
it just egged me on to not care about how much i ate anyway =P
now, im looking to bulk up though. lose all the 104 pounds of fat that makes it hard for me to run a 9 minute mile, and replace it with muscle. ;]

Upon consideration of all that politically correct befukery, psychological shidtheadedness, and misplaced zealotry masquerading as morals, I find myself simply more inclined to attend the law lecture. Because I need the sleep.

|Young Calorie Counters||School....So Much To Handle On First Day.....A-Honoroll....Pressure....Help!||Aug 27 2008
well, i just finished 8th this year; ill be starting 9th this september.
well.. first off, saying you want to do well in a school year.. wont work. -shrugs- sorry.. usually, people (like myself) start off every single school year saying something like that.
if you dont force yourself to do well, youre just going to slack off (cough. like myself).
its easy for me to suggest you study for all of your tests and go over class notes every night, in order to sound like a smartass in class. but for some people, its still impossible to get on honor roll with that.
what i suggest, is that you make a schedule for yourself. this would even work well with your calorie count.
you can change stuff around, like, if you want to watch tv before hw rather than after. but this is just an example:
6 AM: breakfast
7-8 AM: commute
8 AM-3 PM: school
3-3:30 PM: snack
3:30-6:30: two FULL hours of doing your homework to the best degree possible.
whenever you finish your hw to 7: tv
7 PM: dinner
8-10 PM: two FULL hours of studying ANYTHING you can, even if you dont have to.
if you make a schedule like that, and FORCE yourself to NOT get up from your desk for two full hours and just sit and study.. youll get somewhere. but thats only if you stay commited.

You know, evolution says that people like you need to die,
ideally before spawning.
|Young Calorie Counters||:(||Aug 26 2008
heyy, just turn it around-- be an optimist! =DD
think about this: some people hit a plateau when theyre on the same calorie restriction for a while.
You probably did your body some good today, cause the extra 450 is getting your metabolism running, get it? Which means it might be even easier for you to lose weight later on! isnt that awesome?! cheat days are actually encouraged, cause your metabolism gets too used to your regular deficit, cheat days HELP you!
dont worry! everyone slips up, but i wouldnt consider this is as a slip up!
dont be so ":(" hehe, this was probably good for you. (do ya feel enlightened?)
before, i didnt have any cheat days at all, and now i give myself 2 per week (i dont binge, but i just stop myself from counting incessently and eat whatever in the world i crave!), and ive seen some better results. i feel so much better about myself too! =D
~hope this makes you feel better. ^___^
