Ht. 5'2", Start: 160 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I am 13 and pretty overweight. I have a wide and stock build, but it's mostly fat. My belly sags over my belt line and its uncomfortable. I can't fit in good clothes because they don't make them in my size. Right now, I am getting healthier according to my pediatrician but it is a genetic issue, and I was adopted. My biggest problem is my clothing and how it looks. There are a few kids at my school who make fun of my weight because I don't fit in any kids clothes. Right now I eat 3,500 cal a day and get some excercise. Please help me with my clothes and my eating habits

Ht. 5'3", Start: 100 lb, Today: 133 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 90 lb - Hi I have gained a lot of weight and I always feel self conscious about that. in fact I suffered from depression and this year has been really tough for me since I have a lot of acne scars and facial hair more than the boys at my school. I wish that I could change and that I could fix all of this but I just don't know how to. I don't think anyone will ever like me.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 190 lb, Today: 190 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - I don't remember a time in my life that I WASN'T overweight. I've never really been bullied for my weight but getting dirty looks from other kids says it all. About a year and a half ago I weighed around 150 pounds and lost about 20 pounds when I did a weight loss program with my older brother. Since then I've gained it all back plus more. That wasn't the only time I've tried to lose weight either; I've tried many other times. I'm a freshman in high school so I want to me a "new me" by the beginning of sophomore year.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 188 lb, Today: 164 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 140 lb - I have been doing good the last few months, but the last couple of weeks I haven't lost any weight. I have been binging from time to time and just maintaining my weight when in reality all I want to do is lose it. Any tips or inspiration?

Ht. 5'1", Start: 196 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - Hey I've been in this site before, but only for a little while. I am very scared that I will hit 200lbs! I can't let that happen. I dance, and want to continue(ballet &jazz). I just want to be a normal size. Right now, I am a size 16! And I want to be at a size 4. All my other friends are very skinny and I feel like the odd one out every time. I feel guilty every time I eat something that the slightest bit unhealthy:-( I want to get back on track and be the size I want. My goal is that I will be 110, and a size 4-6 by age 15

Ht. 5'5", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 120 lb - I have always felt bigger than all the other kids and felt like i was fat and I just dismissed it because my parents told me i would grow. I haven't.. When i sit, I have to pull my shirt so it isnt touching my stomach. I hate feeling so disgusting in my own skin. I have never felt good enough or pretty enough and it's time for a change. I really really need to change.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 157 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 120 lb - Hello!! So I have been really skinny for the past 12 years and also short, but when I turned 12 I grew a lot... In both ways. I went from about 4'9 to 5'5 in 2 years and gained about 70 pounds. I am not sure why I gained so much, because I do exercise a lot (Tae-kwon do 4 hours a week, frisbee 2 hours a week) and I don't eat fast food or sugar that much. My sister who is a year older then me stayed thin. A few months ago I started to want to lose weight and lost 10 lbs in 3 days, but then gained it back and then lost it. That keeps on happening, so I was just wondering, how do I lose weight and not gain it back?
And also, how do I look better in my clothes? My jeans always make my belly stick out over the top, and the rest of my clothes are loose T-shirts, dresses and skirts.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 523 lb, Today: 523 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 250 lb - I really don't know how to change my weight. I'm incredibly embarrassed about being so fat that I rarely go out. Last summer I only left the house twice over the course of 8 weeks. I've been trying to eat healthier and have cut back a lot but I counted yesterday and I'm still eating over 5000 calories. On top of that I can barely walk for more than a minute so I can't exercise. Please I really need some advice as I can't carry on like this

Ht. 5'3", Start: 142 lb, Today: 140 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 110 lb - I don't remember exactly what my weight is now but I am pretty sure it is a little less than it was when I was 5'1". I'm actually not sure if I am 5'3" or 5'4". On the calculator I found that if I am 5'3" I would JUST be under obese if I were 140 lbs. If I were 5'4 I would be, I think, towards the middle of the overweight range.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 180 lb, Today: 135 lb (BMI %tile: 80), Goal: 130 lb - If you guys are eat in healthy but are still not losing weight, or if you can't stop your cravings, read this.
Eating sugar makes you crave food you don't need. It significantly spikes insulin, which makes WANT to eat more.
If you avoid sugar, you will not want to eat as much and will eat less naturally. DON'T EAT SUGAR! The more overweight you are, the less sugar you should eat to lose weight.
Foods with sugar:
Bread(including whole grain)
You can eat all this again after you lose weight, but by getting rid of it now you are eliminating your craving for worse foods like candy. Since you will not be eating sugar, you new to replace it with some other source of energy. Fat.
Fat is not bad for you, even so called bad saturated fat. It does not clog your arteries or cause diabetes. It is way more... (view more)
