Jazmine Compagni   Okay I don't understand, I am 14 and I am 5'5 and my ideal weight is supposed to be 127 lbs. I feel fat now, because I am 195 lbs. Why did I even look to see my ideal weight? I was hoping that I could get to 150 lbs, but nooooo, it has to be 127 lbs. I'm upset now, because I have been doing this since my birthday and according to my scale I have been gaining weight instead of loosing. I cannot believe this. - 8/5/2015 9:08:55 AM
