Hello
You should get your thyroid levels and blood sugar levels checked.If normal,then you can definitely join a weight loss program.If you do become pregnant,you should avoid excessive work outs.I would suggest that you lose the weight before trying to concieve.

I m 14 years old and have encountered a big interest with fitness. I started going to the gym about 2 months after I turned 13, and have been going to the gym for over a year now. My worry is that I ve heard that going to the gym before being fully developed can stun your growth, is this true? One of the things I ve heard is that lifting weights that goes against your body weight, such as squatting, can push your growth plates together, without it developing naturally. I was wondering if these myths are true, and if I should stop going to the gym. Right now, I m about 5 and a half months into 14 years of age, and I am currently 5 6 . Thank you.
