To tell you the truth I think I'm more unhappy than ever before because now I actually realise how heavy I was, and still am. I haven't lost any weight in a few months now and it's deflating. It's demoralising to know I can do it, because I have been doing it but now it's just gone to sh*t. My mantra always was 'I refuse to give up on myself' and yet that's exactly what I've done. Where did it all go wrong? And how do people keep going when they feel like giving up?

Ht. 5'3", Start: 250 lb, Today: 250 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - I'm 16 5'3" 250lbs I have an under active thyroid which has affected me negatively and I have gained a lot of weight over quite a period time though not all at once I have dieted multiple times and it seems to never help .. I just keep gaining I am on medication for my thyroid problems but I don't take it daily so it doesn't work.. I have lack of motivation and I think maybe seeing everything other teens are struggling with may help motivate me a bit :)

Ht. 4'11", Start: 176 lb, Today: 186 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - Hey guys, so I need help with one of my friends. She started out about the same weight as me but then she started soccer and I started dance. She does soccer about 5 times a week, and I do dance about the same amount. I think it's great that she is excercising and being healthy, and I would be happy for her weight loss, but I don't think it's fair to me. See I know what your thinking, wow that's shallow and your being a horrible friend, and I know I am, but the thing is she doesn't eat healthy. I see her eating canu and chips and soda and burgers and all of that junk, but then she is still losing more weight then me. I eat pretty healthy(occasional cookie or junk food, but I try to be healthy). I just can't take it, being with girls who can eat anything they want and then when I try to eat healthy they start asking me if I want some chocolate or candy. Then ... (view more)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 170 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - Does anyone know what to do to make a uniform bigger? My school uniform is too small for me, but mom can't afford a new one so I have to keep this one.
The problem is, the skirt is soooooo tight it hurts and gives me red marks all round my waist, and the shirt is too short to cover my belly properly sothe bit that sags over my skirt's waistband is totally uncovered. So I need a bigger uniform really soon, can anyone help?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 132 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - Hello teens, My name is Jolene and I posted here in June asking for advice about my adopted son John. He's 13 and last June he was 61" tall and 132 pounds. His pediatrician at that time told his father and me that John was obese and to help him lose weight.Last Tuesday, we took John back for another physical(he just started 8th grade and he wants to play sports, so the district requires current physicals for all such students. John grew 1" taller and he gained 33 pounds over the summer. I know John has a huge appetite and knew he gained weight this summer because we had to buy all new school clothes for him because he couldn't even pull the nice pants he wore last June over his legs and hips, but I had no idea he had gained so much weight. Yesterday we went to a neighbor's house for a end of summer party. They have a pool, and so John was there in his boardshorts... (view more)

BMI takes no account into how much muscle mass you have. I personally hate BMI and think it is another way of trying to put people down. Remember to stay strong during your journey.
