Ht. 5'6", Start: 175 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 125 lb - Today I went to the doctor for a check up, and he told me that I've become obese. He made me take off my shirt and he looked at my belly, he told me that I'm close to developing diabetes and other issues. I've been fat for as long as I can remember. I love food, all I think about is food, I'm usually always eating. In the last 5 months or so, I've gained around 40 pounds. I've noticed that doing nothing simple tasks is becoming hard. Like walking up the stairs, running, or even walking for long periods of time makes me out of breath and tired. My belly had grown in size the most, but so has my arms and legs. My arms are extremely flabby and have lots of stretch marks, my belly hangs over my pants and has many rolls and stretch marks, and my legs rub together. I don't know what to do, my mom said that if I hit 200 pounds, she sending me to fat camp. I really don't want to go to fat camp because I think I'll be made fun of. Does anyone have advice?

I've always been chubby. Always. There was /one/ point in my childhood where I really got big. You know, big belly, big rolls, being picked on at school... Yeah. After all the nagging from my parents I finally got all the weight of to the point where I was just beautiful and curvy (I have big hips and stuff, so I can't be 'skinny' if you know what I mean) But anyway, a few months ago, my boyfriend broke up with me. He had used me for 2 whole months... So imagine how great that felt 😒. I started to eat more and now I'm just really packing on the pounds. I'm big everywhere but the place I've noticed it the most is my belly. Its gotten considerably larger and when I sit down it forms into three big rolls. I weighed myself yesterday and I am 170.9 pounds (I'm 14) Any suggestions to help me lose some weight?

Ht. 5'6", Start: 189 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 130 lb - Hey guys. I just wanted to make a post to encourage anyone trying tolose weight. First off I want to say that your weight is not a flaw, it does not make you a failure or less than. You do not have to lose weight to be "better", you choose to lose weight because you WANT to not because to SHOULD. Losing weight is a choice not a requirement. Also, as someone who loves to eat, realize that food is just food, nothing more or less. When you eat for any other reason than when you feel hungry, you will not be satisfied. I would eat and eat hoping I will feel better. It did, but only for a moment. When you eat only when hungry, you begin to trust your BODY to tell you when it needs food, not your brain or emotions. Even though I only lost 7 seven pounds and have a long way to go, I'm happy that I'm making progress after almost a year of being in a plateau.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 203 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 188 lb - I was never overweight let alone obese until this year. During this past 4/5 months I have gained at least 60 lbs. All i think about is eating. I love food. I love how it tastes. I don't know what to do. I dont want to stop eating or go on a diet but my parents are watching what I eat. I hate it. I hate my body too.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 175.5 lb, Today: 196.5 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130.5 lb - Hi, I'm Trystan. I've been over weight since I was basically in kindergarten. I wasn't made fun of really, but it hurt myself knowing that I was overweight. When I was in 5th grade, I was already 156.9 pounds.. Right now, I just ended 7th grade at 196.5 pounds. I know I'm obese. I have been made fun of lately, and it hurts. I just got a membership at a gym with my mom, and have lost a pound. Its not much, but since last month, I've lost 10.5 pounds. I was over 200 pounds at a point in my life.Being bullied has made me realize that if I don't start losing weight, I'll be made fun of for a long time. I kept telling myself at the end of 2014 that I could lose weight.. But I've only gained. Its time for me to take control of my life! I'm ready to get that beach body I've always wanted.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 321 lb, Today: 300 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - I have been overweight my whole life. My weight has been the one thing bully's and people who do not like me have against me. All of my friends are size 0-6 and then there's me at size 22. I feel like they shouldn't even be friends with me. When I see pictures of us I stick out like a sore thumb. I'm ugly. I hate it. I've never had a boyfriend or a boy even show any interest in me and I know it's because I'm fat. My mom put me in a bootcamp when I was 11 years old because I was overweight. They made me run on a treadmill and when I told them to stop they made it speed up. I've been traumatized. I was diagnosed with depression in March and my motivation in school, losing weight and life is diminishing. I've really been trying these past 2 months and I've lost 21 pounds but my... (view more)
