Ht. 5'3", Start: 170 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 130 lb - Hi I'm stephanie, I'm 18 years old and i can honestly say that I've had weight issues from a very early age. first off I've had a rough childhood; i was sexually abused when i was about 4 by my babysitters son and i had no idea what was happening to me at the time. i remember i would feel uncomfortable and even hide when i was left alone with the person. then one day i remember him pointing out an obese lady on tv and saying that she was really fat and ugly, so i guess i gained weight to protect myself and well the abuse stopped. when i was in 3rd grade i subconsciously knew what he had done to me but i never came forth with it. it wasn't until 5th grade that i started actually struggling with body issues and weight and i became less confident.. and well i became very depressed by high school over my weight. i was on a fast track freshman year to lose...

I was laying in bed thinking I'll start tomorrow but no I'm starting right now. I'm going to try and update on here everyday just so I can keep myself in check and know how everyone else is getting on. I wish you all the best of luck.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 183 lb, Today: 188 lb (BMI: 32), Goal: 130 lb - I am sooo sad. All summer i can admit to being lazy, barely working out or watching what i was eating but my weight was stable and i didnt gain a pound until like a week ago...and i didnt gain a pound i gained almost 10. Its not a lot but its the beginning of the spiral and the worst part is i cant even muster the will power to pick myself up, all i wanna do is eat and sleep. School starts in 25 days, i wanna at least go back to the weight i was at orientation (183) and i plan to lose 25lbs in the first semester...this will be my freshman year and i am hoping to avoid stress and weight gain... any advice??

Ht. 5'8", Start: 204 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 160 lb - Hello everyone. My name is Mila and I honestly just feel like sharing my story and maybe giving some of you some advice and inspiration. I just finished my first year of college and am majoying in history. I plan to teach. In high school, I was a cheerleader for 4 years and competed on a cheer and dance team. I was extremely active and in shape. I am not a little lady. I am curvy, but you wouldn't look at me and see somebody that was fat; at least not when I'm at my healthy body weight. At my goal weight, I love the way I look. Anyway, after I got out of high school I chose to move in with my boyfriend at the time and that turned into a horribly unhealthy, stressful situation. We had no money to pay the bills, let alone money to buy the healthy food I was raised eating. I came from a very active, healthy family that always taught me to eat right and they were shocked...

Ht. 5'10", Start: 188 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 140 lb - Wow, I haven't been on this site in forever! I decided to check it out again and take it seriously this time. So I started out at 183 in september 2010. I lost 14 pounds and was at 169 in december 2010. I was under a lot of stress with school and getting back home on time, so I stopped working out and eating really unhealthy, gaining EVERYTHING plus more back. I also got tendonitis in both wrists and achilles tendons, so that held me back a lot. But now I'm back at it! I have so much motivation to work out, I love it! Staying in shape is part of my job (i'm in the air force) and I'm failing miserably at it, ha. I'm looking forward to hearing everyones story and possibly giving some positive feedback (:

Keep up the good work, guys!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI: 33), Goal: 135 lb - I hate the strechmarks on my stomach, arms, and legs. Although I weigh alot, alot of it is in my breasts. The other day I went shopping for bras thinking I was a 36 dd but then they measured me and said I'm a 36 e. Then the lady said sorry we don't carry your size the plus store is up stairs. I felt humiliated. I want to lose weight

Ht. 5'6", Start: 285 lb, Today: 285 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I'm so tired of looking at myself unrealistically. I know that I'm overweight. It's obvious. My problem is as follows: On a good day, I see myself as stunning, beautiful, head-turning. And then I get disappointed when reality sets in and I realize I'm not getting the results I dreamed of. On bad days, I don't bother with anything. No hair-styling. No makeup. I regard myself as unworthy and sink into a sea of apathy. Even when people tell me I'm attractive, I scoff and shrug.
I know I can do this. I just need the motivation. I'm a natural stress eater, and I've got so much on my plate right now (metaphorically and literally). This hurts. And I can't keep doing it. I guess I'm interested in the accountability factor, so I'll post as often as possible. If you're interested in following my journey, I'll end each post with the following signature so you'll know it's me.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 239 lb, Today: 219 lb (BMI: 40), Goal: 145 lb - Well it has been another horrible night :( It seems like when I have a bad day at work my diet is blown. Then I sit and cry because I am completely unhappy with my body. I haven't worked out in three days! And I have done this before, I know how to loose weight...why am I having so much trouble this time?? My biggest issues are dinner and before bed. My boyfriend is a late night muncher and I just seem to follow, (knowing I shouldn't) I need some kind of motivation...

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Just woke up this morning, and I'm already a pound down! In know it's probably water weight, but still! It's nice to see a positive change on the scale. I'm going to the doctor this morning too to have my thyroid tested. Has anyone else had experience with weight problems related to thyroid problems?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Hey Everyone,
I am DONE being overweight. I've struggled with weight my ENTIRE life, I seriously cannot remember a time in a life when I was comfortable with my body. I went shopping the other day and there were two mirrors in the dressing room, so I saw EVERYTHING. I saw the folds on my back, I saw all the unsightly buldges and lumps. I start college in August (6 weeks!) I know I will not even be close to my goal by then, but I'm hoping to lost at least 8-10 pounds in 6 weeks, is that do-able? I want to feel pretty, confident, and really take control of my life. I've been to this site before, but I am DETERMINED to stick to it this time! Please help me.
