Cool Any Highschoolers on Here?

I'm a 17 year old guy from New York, and was wondering if there are any highschoolers on here? It is really tough sometimes when all your friends get to eat what ever they want, and when ever you eat a cookie you gain five pounds lol. I am sure all you guys on here can relate to how tough it is when you go out with your friends and they all order a burger and you get a salad. Football players are not supposed to eat salad It also doesnt help my school's cafeteria's only LC option is a plain salad with nothing on it.

But I know in the end it will be worth it, to be trim and sexy for prom and graduation. Started at 223 on November 1st and am now at an even 200, with no signs of slowing down

OK, I'm not a highschooler and I'm not a guy ... I'm your great grandmother!! Anyhow, can you pick up your burger and just sort of suck the meat and cheese and mayo out of it and leave most of the bun behind? That's not quite as conspicuous as trashing the bun before you start to eat, and you just might get away with it not being noticed!

Good for you, taking control of your eating habits before they get too out of control. I wish you the very best of luck in your future!

I've also been told that salads and raw veg are for rabbits only.

It's been many moons since I've been to school but welcome onboard.

Here, a 17 year old in Junior year. I'm doing it for different reasons though.

That feeling of being different is something I always go through at lunch. Actually tonight I'm going out and wondering just how strange I'll look. But it's all worth it. =]
