Ht. 5'11", Start: 250 lb, Today: 345 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - So I’ve always been super fat and I never really thought much about it. My whole family is super big and so I just kind of fit in. But recently we had a family reunion and I realized I’m 50 lbs heavier than my next fattest cousin! What’s worse is I was lying down in bed and I suddenly realized I was too full to get up to get to the fridge. I couldn’t even do that awkward fat guy fake sit up where you roll over and slide off because my belly was too full. Has anyone else experienced this, and how do you deal with being this fat in social situations?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 300 lb, Today: 288 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 145 lb - I have always been big. When I was in middle school I was the fattest in the school. I weighed more than all the staff. I was 300lbs when I started middle school. I haven’t lost that much weight in YEARS. How can I get to 145 easily?

Ht. 5'8", Start: 240 lb, Today: 225 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - Hello! For a while I’d been looking at this and thought I should finally post myself since I’d made some personal progress. For most of my life I’ve been overweight and even as early as fifth grade I’d been called fat. It was never much, and it became a natural state of mine and until I stopped growing taller with it I wasn’t all too concerned. Once I reached high school it remained that way until sophomore year... within a single year I put on nearly 50 lbs and that’s when I realized I needed to make a drastic change. Now on a rather successful journey of just simply eating less, I have lost about 15 lbs throughout junior year, which ended recently. I can only hope to keep it going! :)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 200 lb, Today: 462 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - I’m really fat, but I’ve only been concerned about my weight recently because I have a little sister, who is obese as well. She is seven years old, 4ft1, and 160 pounds. I feel bad for her, because she gets bullied a lot, but I feel it’s kinda my fault. I mean, she loves to hang out with me, and most of the time at home and just eat and watch TV. She doesn’t like to exercise because it’s too hard to her, like me. I don’t want to be a bad influence for her, but I just love eating. But I don’t want her to become an obese adult. So, I’m thinking of exercising and dieting with her, so we can lose weight together. It’ll be hard, but I’ll give it my best shot!

It is Monday night and I am back again to bring some updates (though I doubt anyone could care less)
First off, I participate in a program called Battle of the Books, which is a Jeopardy-style where you read 27 books and memorize large and small details to win.
Anyways, my team has advanced to the state competition, where the top eight schools in NC face off in the final battle. As I have been studying for this for almost a year, you can imagine just how nervous and excited I am.
Only problem? I, like so many of us, possess the bad habit of stress eating. After dinner tonight, I waited a half hour to gauge my hunger. My stomach was unfortunately still growling.
Even though I managed to avoid consuming more calories than recommended by my doctor, about half of what I did eat was junk. Pure, unadulterated junk.
Essentially,... (view more)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 152 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 120 lb - Recently I have been eating way too much food (pasta especially) and I just want to lose weight and be happy with myself. There are times where I start to lose the weight and I feel good, but then I lose track and go right back up. I don't know what to do and summer is just around the corner, if anyone knows any ways to help me please tell me.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 190 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 145 lb - so I have friends but im not sure if that'll be the same when i become a freshman next year because i feel like my freinds will want to have a better picture for themselves than hanging out with some fat ass i play base ball and foot ball but i feel like in my head that gives me an excuse to get to eat more i have many calorie counters on my phone and step trackers but most of the time when not playing sports im just eating fast food/junk becasue thats what my parent surround me with an example of them thinking there doing good for me is today. So basically i had a game and my mom went shopping, she came back with cookies,cake,microwavable junk and then when i told her to get me healthy stuff so i can eat healthier she brings back one little bento box thing of grapes,mellon,etc, like as if that is gonna help. my grandma is korean and she cooks alot of korean food like soups and meats with rice and kimchi i feel like i should only eat what she eats idk if you wanna you can add my insta chris_is_chrissed so we can talk.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 172 lb, Today: 322 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Let me tell you something. If you are fat and you know it, do something now! I saw this website, but I shrugged off my weight and decided to deal with it later, it not being a big issue. Wrong! In PE, I was constantly teased since the clothesline were always tight on me and people would bodyshame me in the locker room. One time, we ran the mile, and I could get one quarter through. My friends drifted from me backseat they didn't want to be seen with the "fat girl" and soon food became my only friend. From middle school to now senior year of high school, I gained over 100 pounds from sadness. Want to hear more embarrassment that happened to me because I refuse to do anything about my weight? In seventh grade, I got stuck in a desk and I hate to be pushed and pulled by several teachers. Another time, my two classes were far apart, and I always arrived late for the second one, huffing and puffing. So if you are losing weight, good for you. If you aren't, be careful or you may be me someday.
