Ht. 5'9", Start: 200 lb, Today: 204 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - I've been overweight all my life, and I can't seem to lose any weight. Right now, I'm almost obese on an adult bmi scale, and very obese on a children's scale. I'm more than 50 pounds overweight. What's even worse is that I constantly need to buy new clothes to accommodate my 40 inch waist.

Ht. 4'11", Start: 187 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - I've always been overweight, it just never bothered me. Once I got into middle school, everyone made fun of me for it, and you know what, it sucks. I just don't know what to do about it, they just don't get that I'm trying. There's my rant for the day, thanks for reading

Ht. 5'6", Start: 155 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 115 lb - Hey everyone! Just a quick update
I've started working out at the gym and it's been great! I love doing exercise anyway so doing more didn't bother me! I would recommend the gym because althought I haven't lost weight yet, I've only gone 4 times and I'm toning up and gaining muscle! I litterally have no arm fat (bingo wings) now! You should all give it a go!
Good luck you are all beautiful!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 202 lb, Today: 162 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 150 lb - I've hit so many plateaus, but I'm 12 pounds away from my first (maybe only) goal. Keep up the good work ^_^

Ht. 5'9", Start: 329 lb, Today: 329 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I've always been overweight, and I don't enjoy running or anything, but it has never been a mobility issue. I'm tall enough and lucky enough that my weight has grown more upward as opposed to making me rounder. I'm worried about later issues though. Also, being a plus size junior, who's already more mature than most of the boys, no one wants to date me. I really want/need to loose weight, and I'd love to be down a size or two by summer, but I have issues losing weight. I feel like I don't have time to exercise, and eating healthy is hard to do in public school. I could use all the help, tips, stories, and encouragement that I can get!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I'm 13 and have been overweight if not obese for most of my life. I have tried loosing weight so many times I've lost track. At one point I was 175lb and was very motivated to loose weight I lost 15lb but quickly gained it back plus another 40lb. I have a school dance coming up in a few months and would love to lose 20lb by then. I also play softball and can't fit into my uniform without it being skin tight. I don't know what I can do to find motivation or something that will help me through trying to loose this weight. If anyone has any advise for me or anything that will help me get back on track to reach my goals I would love to hear them.

Ht. 5'0", Start: 11 st 1, Today: 11 st 1 (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 9 st 0 - So I have been on here before but like every health kick I do I end up giving up! I really need to lose weight as at the moment my weight is a health issue and I have let it go to far! So today I started doing yoga and I went to the gym! I also cut out most of the bad things or eat like crisps and chocolate and I calorie counted. One thing I'm worried about though is giving in. On about the second day usually I end up getting really upset and comfort eating, and I know I shouldn't but I am an emotional eater! I really hope that I stick to this diet though as I hate being overweight! I can't stand having to get changed for PE at school as my stomach is a great big jelly circular mess compared with all my friend's nice tone stomachs. It's embarrassing! Especially because when I run or even just walk everything jiggles and it takes a few seconds to stop! That's... (view more)  (Note: 11 st 1 is 155 lb.)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 152 lb, Today: 149 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 110 lb - Hello, I'm new here. :) I thought I'd ask for some advise on my biggest problem I've been having. I am losing weight, but I don't notice it on myself. I also can't envision what I will look like, and it scares me. I constantly see "success story" pictures, but I can't imagine myself thin because I haven't been since I was 7. I feel like this is holding me back and I don't know what to do. Help!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 250 lb, Today: 206 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - I haven't been on this in forever. But, a quick update. I gained so much weight over the holidays and got back up to 240. But, I have started my own meal plan now and it is working great. I have lost 20 pounds in a month. I haven't weighed yet and I'm hoping by Monday I can finally be 199. I'm hoping and praying. I haven't been in the 100's in 3 years! SO this will be a big accomplishment for me. I'm going to keep trying. Don't give up ya'll can do it. Stay strong and stay motivated!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 216 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - I want to lose weight so badly that it's unreal. I want to look beautiful when beach season comes around. I want guys to want me, and girls to be jealous of what I look like. That's literally what I have dreamed about for so long now. I just can't lose the weight, it feels like I try so hard every time & it just never happens. I always cave in and end up eating bad food, and not working out. I don't know how to make myself stick to eating good and working out. I know that sounds dumb, but it's just so hard for me. I don't know what to do. I need to lose weight.
