Ht. 5'1", Start: 195 lb, Today: 193 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - Today in school I ran the mile and I actually liked it. I wasn't lagging behind everyone either. Well there were only 6 people running and the only one who finished early was the weird, anti-social kid. But I did get behind but unlike everyone else, I knew that I still had to walk fast because of all my other losing weight experiences.
Anyway I was behind these 2 boys, and 1 turned around and he said what lap are you on. And I said 4 (4 laps around the track is a mile at my school). And he called me a liar! Then he said that I better not be able to get away with it! I got internally mad. And in my head I was like, Just because I'm fat doesn't mean I'm slow. It bothers me that some people just assume that. Like right before I started the other boy told me not to give up and that I had to keep running. I never even said anything to him. Geez. Anyway back to the good news, I finished the mile in under 15 minutes like I was supposed to. My time was 13:29. Only 7 seconds behind the person in front of me. And I was the last one.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 175 lb, Today: 172 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Well, yesterday I didn't eat too badly (I didn't eat healthy but I managed my portions alright) and here's what I did for exercise: I walked for about 50 minutes (jogging then walking then jogging, etc.), did 20 push-ups against the wall, and had lots of water. Do you think that's enough for one day??

Ht. 5'8", Start: 150 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 125 lb - As you can see I weigh more than I should for a thirteen year old. Its horrible for me because everyone (except for my mom and dad) in my family are smaller than me. When I was in 5th grade I could wear my Grandma's clothes, it's almost pathetic. My mom always teases me about how when I was born I was the biggest baby in the hospital, now I want to be a normal sized girl. My goal is to be at least a size five by the time I am done with my diet. Wish Me Luck!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 173 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 130 lb - I think a great way to stay on the tredmile without getting bored is to listen to music or watch the television while walking. It keeps you from being bored and before you know it you've walked for an hour! I've done really good today on my eating except for the 2 muffins at dinner and 2 rolls at lunch...i eat WAY to many carbs. they're just so yummy...anyway, i'll get back to you guys in like maybe a few days, a week at the most and tell you how i've done! love you all! good luck this week!
