A Teen Weight Loss Success Story
Teens can get into a variety of fun activities in order to lose weight.
With overweight teens getting increasingly more common nowadays,
finding more enjoyable ways of getting rid of excess weight.

at losing weight as something that they have to do instead of being
something that they really want to do. Once they enjoy doing it, they
have an increased likelihood of keeping it up and become more
successful in trying to lose weight.
But how can you make losing weight more fun? Well, exciting activities
that appeal to the teenager will likely do it. There is a story of a
certain teenage girl who lost weight simply by playing a video game.
Now, what can be more exciting and fun than that? Losing weight while
playing a video game? This is some story that is worth listening to.
This typical teenage girl makes use of her time at the arcade to lose
weight. She started playing a popular video game called "Dance Dance
Revolution (DDR)" at the age of 17. At that time, she was a senior in
high school and weighed about 235 lbs, pretty overweight for a teenage
girl. But after four and a half years of playing the said video game,
she now weigh about 140 lbs.
She couldn't even imagine just how much a video game would come to
affect her health and weight concerns with positive results. The said
video game even helped her grow to be a better and more self-confident
teen. Before discovering the video game, she was a rather inactive
person not used to go about doing such activities.
Although she was active as a member in different bands, orchestras,
drama, and had already played video games, she didn't regularly get out
for exercise. She became really unhappy when she realized that she was
at an unhealthy weight. Just as what happens with most obese people,
she started losing hope that she will ever be a normal person again
when faced with the fact that she had so much weight to lose. The
Internet became a form of escapism so that she didn't have to face
people in person because of her overweight condition.
In college, she became increasingly unhappy being in a new environment
and her weight continued to yo-yo, usually staying at around 235 lbs.
Sometime around October of 2002, a fun new game version of a game
called DDR USA was released that contained a ton of new songs to dance
to. She tried the game out and soon became addicted to the video game
with a high activity rate. Not long after, she began frequenting the
video arcade almost everyday playing the video game for hours and
At one point, she came to discover a website which had a Bulletin Board
where people would meet online and talk about DDR and music games and
she quickly became friends with the regulars. She was able to get to
know friends who were able to motivate her to play more frequently and
for hours at a time. It was during around this time she began losing
most of her weight.
In her first six months of playing, she was able to lose 45 lbs with no
change in her diet whatsoever. Once she discovered that she can find
herself at a more comfortable weight again, she decided to make healthy
changes in her life such as following a more healthy diet. She became
more conscious of what she ate and as a result, lost an additional 20
Playing the game regularly and coupled with a healthy diet has allowed
her to maintain a healthier weight than she ever thought possible. All
because she was able to enjoy losing weight by playing a video game
that changed her life.
