Ht. 5'4", Start: 195 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 140 lb - I've been overweight all my life. I'm reaching 200lbs and it's driving me crazy! I feel ugly, fat and round. I have such low self-esteem that I haven't gone out with friends in months; I'm embarassed. My goal is to reach 140lbs by December. I want to show people that I am beautiful and beyond my looks, there's so much more to me. I'm slowly working up a diet and an exercise plan.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 275 lb, Today: 250 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - I have recently lost 15 lbs due to some medication, but i am at a standstill and need to know what to do? i walk about 2 miles a day, and it is a quick pace and i try to eat right but most the food i have is canned or processed because it was either cheaper or from a food bank. Is there any tips on how to have a healthy diet from that? or other exercise tips?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 229 lb, Today: 223 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 150 lb - For some reason I can tell myself everyday today is the day to really get serious and loose this weight, it lasts until evening where I start snacking instead of working out. I used to be 145 and felt great, I want that again more then anything but eating overcomes it....any suggestions anyone please!!!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 183 lb, Today: 183 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 175 lb - Okay, so i joined this site back when i was 16 during my sophomore year of high school. I was 233 lbs and wanted a big change for myself just like everyone else on here. I eventually went down to 175 where i felt my healthiest and strongest. Getting lower than 170 caused me to look sickly and i was starving myself to keep the weight off. I knew i needed to stop the low calorie diet and start working on my healthy eating habits at a more normal daily calorie intake. When i went to college i gained weight and got up to 195. Now im 183 and trying to get to my goal weight once again. I workout alot. i love to run and take zumba classes at my college. right now i have to work on my eating. so far despite my intense workouts the weight isnt slipping off as easy as it used to. when i was 16 it literally flew off! its a challenge that its slow going and is very frustrating but i have to keep the motivation and remember that this is not a fast process. i feel healthy, i feel strong, im eating good things. i just want this very badly and i will achieve it.

I came here like 4years ago when I was 14 5'4 and 180 pounds, I lost 40 pounds and now I guess I started gaining it back, I was 150 last year &I've gained 20 pounds since then, maybe its the stress of college &being so far away from my family, I'm kinda addicted to food I try to eat healthy but its like my body craves calories now. I want to lose 20 more pounds before my birthday April 29 and hopefully with you guys help I can do it. :)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 203 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - So, I've finally reached a breaking point. I'm tired of being fat, overweight, chubby, big boned, whatever you wanna call it. I really wanna be 130 by May 1st. Since it's about three months from now I really think I could do it. I WILL BE 130!! I'll be 18 in may as well, just in case anyone was wondering. I'm actually 17 and 9 months, but the teens board seemed to make me feel out of place. :)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 178 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 155 lb - IM SO EXCITED! I just bought a mini trampoline! I read on someone's blog that if you exercise for 22 minutes everyday you can lose 3 pounds a week! I don't even care if that's true though because I need a fun way to work out! I hate treadmills, ellipticals, bicycles.... But I've always loved bouncing on a trampoline! THIS IS PERFECT! And it only cost $89 plus it comes with a stabilizing bar, resistance bands and it's an oval so jumping jacks are easier!!
