Ht. 5'5", Start: 179 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 135 lb - Ok well this summer is pretty ok its just know that Im home alone with my sister I get soo bored that I eat. I don't want to but i just stroll into the kitchen and have something in my hands. I've been walking with my mom for like 4 miles a day and im just starting swim team. Do you believe Im gonna lose some inches on my waist from swimming. Theres just nothing to do know for 3 weeks because I have no way of getting there. Any tips on how to stay out of the kitchen?

Ht. 5'6", Start: 320 lb, Today: 320 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Where do I start? Let's see... I have always been a heavy child for as long as I can remember. I hate it. People calling names, not being able to do a lot of the things other kids do (like amusement park rides, and certain sports) and having to be disgusted every time I look in the mirror. We have a group at school called the "Wellness Club" that is suppose to talk about weight related issues, but it doesn't help. Being in the group, I feel worse because I know I am the heaviest one there. I want to change my life, one pound at a time, and be able to enjoy life to the fullest. I really hope it helps being able to talk to other overweight teens online helps, if it doesn't I don't know what else to do. I don't feel comforted talking to my mother or anyone else about my weight in person, I am afraid to talk face to face with others. Maybe losing weight can help. High hopes, and good luck to everyone.- Becky

Ht. 5'7", Start: 203 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 126 lb - I was thinking last night that maybe what I need is an inspiration.. maybe someone who looks healthy to look up to and use as a kind of motivation. Does anyone have someone like that? Maybe a celebrity who looks healthy who you look up to? I really need ideas! xx
