My mom is on Plegine and she has lost alot of weight on it. I've asked her if I can take it to or if she will ask my doctor but she is afraid of it. I am a cheerleader at my high school but I am the "fat" cheerleader and am made fun of by some kids at school. I take tumbling once a week and because of my weight I can't do everything that other can do in my tumbling class. I am embarrassed and tired of crying over being made fun of. Is this ok to take to jump start my metabolism?
