Ht. 5'7", Start: 332 lb, Today: 332 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - Hi my name is Michael, I'm 18 and just like Heather I've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and I'm now at risk for a heart attack! I've been fat throughout my life and it's all my fault! I put all that fattening junk food down my mouth, yes it tasted great but little did I know it was also killing me! My doctor warned me about all this when I was younger but I did not listen, I dismissed it as something that would happen years, even decades down my life. But sadly I was so wrong, I now have to take 2 diabetes pills each day - 1 in the morning and 1 at night, 1 high blood pressure pill in the morning, and a daily aspirin for my heart. According to my doctor if I continue my current lifestyle choices I will most likely die before I'm 30 from either a stroke or a heart attack. That is what finally made me decide to save my life ans lose... (view more)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 315 lb, Today: 263 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 165 lb - Hello, I've been overweight pretty much since I was about 10 years old. I was always the kid who wanted sweets, candy, and unhealthy foods. Only being 19 years old, I have recently been diagnosed as having early onset of type 2 diabetes. It certainly has changed my entire life. It's even tougher being in South Korea because my family is military. It's not what I pictured in my life, especially at this young of an age. I knew I may have been doomed one day way later in my future, just not a kid. My parents felt it was a lot of their fault, but also, it was mostly mine. I controlled what went in my mouth, and whatever I thought was amazingly good, I ate it. My mindset then was as "eh, nothing bad can happen this early in life to me." Boy, was I wrong. I have high blood pressure, menstrual problems, high blood sugar, high cholesterol (which you need to keep a very... (view more)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 168 lb, Today: 161.3 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 145 lb - I don't know, I can't talk to people about trying to loose weight and so I'm afraid to make healthy eating decisions in front of them. Any advice? I am extremely athletic though. It's like a Catch 22

Ht. 5'5", Start: 245 lb, Today: 222 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 155 lb - Hey everyone! I just turned 18, so I think this is my first time on the 18+ bulletin board :) I'll fill you in on my story. Since I was about twelve, I started noticing that I was heavier than my sisters. As I grew older, I got more and more overweight and I started wondering why. No one in my family is obese, and I didn't eat any more than they did! Still, I kept gaining. Needless to say, it was very frustrating. Finally, when I was 17 my mom took me to an iridologist, a natural doctor. She told me that I had a thyroid problem. It had knocked my hormones all out of balance and had caused an overgrowth of yeast in my body. This caused me to gain weight that I wasn't able to lose. I felt relief that I finally knew what the problem was! The doctor gave me some natural supplements that would help regulate things in my body as well as a diet that would... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 188 lb, Today: 188 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 135 lb - Within the past week i've broken through the obesity ceiling. It hurts to say the least that I've lost such control. It seems within the past 5 years I have been sliding slowly away from my ideal fitness level. Sliding so slowly in fact that it never seemed to be of any urgent concern until lately, with news of moving to a new city. I'm somewhat recently graduated from high school and after next week i'll be leaving to live with a family member, in hopes to get a job and save up enough money to go to school in the fall. I want so badly to do better for myself, i.e. eat right, exercise, read more, you know, all that good stuff, so i'm pledging here, officially, to keep up with a new lifestyle, and lose the weight. 135lb is my goal! woohoo! Goals!! So now i'm off to the gym, right after the final round of wheel of fortune, and hope keep track of my progress.... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 255 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI: 37), Goal: 160 lb - Sometimes I feel so down about what I see in the mirror. I watch movies and see how appealing it is to be in shape and it inspires me to work out and eat right. Then, again, I see what I have to work with and it's heartbreaking. I've been on a mission to get healthy for what seems like forever now and my success rate is low. I live in a stressful household which I believe has a lot to do with my weight gain. My siblings eat junk on the daily and our food options are junk. Does anyone have any advice on weight loss? Something I haven't seen on google? Thank you for your help in advance.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 210 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 155 lb - Wow, I remember I looked at this site when I was 14. During that time I came here hoping to change my weight, but it never happened. I am now 19, and FINALLY realizing how much I need to change. I began my weight journey in August of 2012. I have seen a huge difference, and I'm proud of my self. But now I am stuck. I have been stuck at the same weight for two months now, and I don't know what to do. The food and craving just call my name. This is so difficult.
