Ht. 5'8", Start: 395 lb, Today: 395 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - I have been overweight since I was about 10 years old. I really want to lose weight and be healthier, but I do feel as if im addicted to food. I'll be full and still go back for more and being almost 400 pounds at the age of 18 scares me. If anyone has any advice they can give me or any support groups out there or ways to help me, please let me know on here or you can email me at Helen.carter@yahoo.com. thanks :(

Ht. 5'10", Start: 410 lb, Today: 375 lb (BMI: 54), Goal: 250 lb - "Body by Vi" really worked for me. I got down to 365 pounds by the time my wife and I got married on May 3. I know that's huge but it's a lot better then the 430 I weighed at the beginning of February. After the wedding, my wife and I went on a cruise for 2 weeks and I gained back 10 lbs because of the 24/7 food, but now that we're home, back on the program for me. 250 here I come!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 180 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 135 lb - I've struggled with my weight since I was in first grade. Before I started 7th grade I was able to lose some weight but now I cant seem to. From December 2013 to may 2014 I've gained almost 30 pounds even thought I'm dieting and exercising. I don't know what to do anymore and I need help. My family is starting to get on me about needing to lose weight and since I've gained weight the few friends I had on the team no longer want to socialize with me since I'm bigger.. If anyone has something I can try to do it'd be greatly appreciated.

Ht. 5'9", Start: 247 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 147 lb - So I've lost 19lbs now which I'm really happy about but recently I've not been losing any, it's so frustrating! I've been looking up some information on the internet and I've found that weight loss is mainly due a change in your eating habits rather than exercise (which you obviously still need to do) Does any one have any ideas for healthy snacks or dinners, I don't like salad so it's quite hard to find healthy things I like?
Also if anyone has any general advice about weight loss it would be appreciated!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 191 lb, Today: 144 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 130 lb - Hello everyone, Its been years since ive come on this site, and just like everyone else i constantly have struggled with my weight, depression and stress. Slowly throughout the years I have brought my weight down. But as a normal human being I slip and fall off the tracks once in awhile. I see there are alot of you on here struggling and or just want some motivation. I know how you feel! I completely 100% believe we become addicted to sugar & FOOD. We are ALL human and its stressful & emotional challenging. Remember everyone if we would have stuck to our "healthy eating" & gym routines 6 months ago we would have been alot closer then we are today. BUT that also applies to 6 months from now, once we commit and get motivated. Im not saying keep putting it on the back burner but we ALL have second chances to redeem ourselfs, and we have the opportunity 6 months... (view more)

I'm really new to these things and I don't really know where to start. I have reached my absolute limit with my weight and cannot stand being overweight anymore. I have exhausted so many options. A Few months ago, through sheer hard work I was able to lose 3 stone but since then I have reached a point where I need someone else to help me along!  (Note: 13 st 8 is 190 lb.)

So remember your not alone, in any situation, your not the only one in the world. Any excercise is better than none.

Ht. 5'10", Start: 410 lb, Today: 430 lb (BMI: 62), Goal: 250 lb - Hey everybody, I posted here back in November and a couple times after that. I can't stick to any diet and my fiancée and my family tell me I'm OK like I am. But now I REALLY need some advice. My fiancée and I are going to get married on May 3 and I need to loose weight fast. We went to see about clothes on Saturday and my finacee wants me and my best man and ushers (my brothers) to wear gray and when I tried stuff on I look like the Goodyear blimp, it didn't help that nothing fit and the places we went (3) said they'd have to make my suit to special order, real expensive.
So, I GOTTA LOSE WEIGHT FAST. I've been checking out the Body by Vi challenge. Has anybody done it? Does it work? Please let me know. Thanks.

Ht. 169 cm, Start: 85 kg, Today: 83 kg (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 60 kg - So I'm going to start a diet again today. It feels like year after year, month after month this is the only goal I can't succeed at. I need encouragement, so I decided to join this site to keep track of my progress. My birthday is less than a month away and I know I'm going to feel like crap if I'm still at the same weight. Any thoughts on juice fasting?  (Note: 169 cm, 83 kg is 5'7", 183 lb.)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 235 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - So now that I'm 18 my parents have agreed to take me to a weight loss resort next week in Mexico, that I've been wanting to go forever. I will be having full body smart lipo and a full tummy tuck. I can't wait to show off my new body this summer after these two procedures! I just wished my parents would have allowed me to do it sooner.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 232 lb, Today: 217 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Ok, So doing good so far. The idea is to eat something different and not the same old thing. That was my problem before. I'm on the low carb low sugar diet (Jorge Cruise: Belly Fat Cure) I recommend that. That's how i've been losing weight. Anyways, I was eating the same old stuff day after day because I didn't know what else to cook or make. For breakfast now, I'll have 2 scrambled eggs, 4 slices turkey bacon & like cheese stick or 1/4 cup avocado. Or an omelet with turkey bacon, cheddar cheese and spinach in it. It's good. Have to wake up earlier to make it though. Dinner - Crispy Chicken parmesan & Zucchini Cheese fries. Something like that and for a treat an atkins coconut chocolate bar...it has 1g sugar and 1g carb. it's been working for me! :) New year new beginnings right?

Ht. 5'5", Start: 190 lb, Today: 130 lb (BMI: 22), Goal: 127 lb - Hi everyone! So, I'm seeing a lot of people who are struggling to lose weight and are trying to figure out where to start. I struggled all of my life with weight, and just recently made the switch to a healthy life style about 2 years ago. However, I haven't forgotten how utterly difficult and impossible the process seemed at times. Losing weight is hard. No one can deny that. However, there are 2 things that I found helpful when starting my journey:
1) Put yourself on an eating schedule. If you don't do anything else, do that. It will give you some semblance of self control. Try eating every 2 hours at first (breakfast, 2 hours later a snack, 2 hours later lunch, etc). In between that 2 hours, don't allow yourself to snack. It will give you a chance to get used to not snacking constantly, and make you aware of when you are and aren't hungry. Gradually, you... (view more)
