Being first or last at anything at your age is stressful, but understand that you will stop growing taller soon after starting. Most only grow 2 inches more.

I am a teenager and I have tried doing exercises but it doesn't work instead it make me sick and weak please what can I do everyone says am really fat?
Why?: The question is why does exercise make you sick and weak. Exercise does not necessarily help you lost weight. You must focus on your diet first. I know it is extreme but consider a plant based nutrition program that will give you the essentials you need (not be hungry) and get you feeling better. Why not just go out for nice 20-30 minute walks with a friend in a place you enjoy, make it fun. ...Read more
