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.
Thanks!!! :D

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)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 187 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 130 lb - Hey guys, so I've lose roughly around 20 more pounds since last time i posted something here. With the start of they new year marks my one year journey. Now for some losing almost 40 pounds in a year would not be impressive, but for me this is amazing. i cannot wait to be in the 140s, and lose my last 20 pounds! Guys just know this process is hard, and painful, and challenging, and stressful, but i would be lying if i said it wasn't worth it. Keep moving forward guys!
