Ht. 5'5", Start: 187 lb, Today: 167 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 125 lb - Does anyone have any advice about overcoming weightloss plateaus? I've been off track for about 2 months because i wasn't seeing results as fast as i hoped to. I need some help involving motivation and temptation. When i see a food i like and i know its bad, i eat it anyway, but then regret it! Its so frustrating, so if anyone has some tips they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 247 lb, Today: 221 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 147 lb - Thought i'de just share some tips for everyone that have helped me personally and I hope they can help someone else :)
1) only eat when you are hungry-don't stick to a schedule
2) stop eating when you are not hungry anymore - rather than when you're full
3) diet is more important then exercise so if you're just starting concentrate on what your eating - I restricted to 1600 cals and I'm never hungry
4) plan what your eating for the day and try and stick to it
5) allow yourselves treats - if you restricted these too much you will end up binging (pr I always did)
I hope this helps someone and good luck everyone!

Look it up and let me know if it helped you any! :)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 68 lb, Today: 132 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 101 lb - Hello, I'm the aunt of a boy named John, who came to live with us a year ago because his mom had been neglecting him. I apologize for coming to the teen's board, but I NEED YOUR ADVICE PLEASE. John came to us last June and he was seriously underweight. The doctor said he was 57" tall and weighed only 68 pounds and at the physical with his shirt off I could see how all his ribs showed. For the first 2 weeks I tried to get John to eat more at meals but he didn't eat that much and then I began to make him treats like a milkshske before bedtime and things like that because the doctor said he was so underweight. Then John began to eat more and by the time school started he was asking for seconds at meals and we (my husband and me) gave him an allowance so he could by snacks after school with his new friends. Two weeks ago we had to take John back for another physical... (view more)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 221 lb, Today: 219 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 170 lb - I just found this site. I saw that a few people were upset because no one is ever on to encourage them. Since I'm not a regular, I cannot guarantee that I'll be back often or at all.
However, I will and can say this: every single one of you is strong. I'm struggling to lose the weight; chances are, you are, too. However, that struggle that you're putting up? It means that what you're struggling for is WORTH IT. You can make it if you really stick to it. I promise I will if you do, too. ;)
