Hey y'all, I'm just writing to say that I started this year off at being 5'6" and weighing 160 pounds, but when October started, I just got really active and started to really observe what I was eating and so far I have gotten my weight down to 141 pounds, and yes, I still am 5'6". Recently I was watching Tv and a report said that Canadian kids were getting more and more obese, and that scared me quite a bit, did anyone else hear this? Any comments? Also I took the BMI calculator on this site and it said that my ideal weight was between 101 and 149 pounds, which kinda made me feel mad, because if I was ever to go below 120 pounds, I would have to go to a hospital because, my bones would be popping out everywhere, and I'd be sick. Has anyone else, noticed that the BMI calculator is somewhat...off??

READ THIS!
When I was about 10 or 11 I was 5'7 and weighed around 175.I was not lazy, but overweight and frowned apond by other kids. When I reached high school I knew that if I was going to exercise and eat right, I would have to do it for myself! not other people. What did I do? I started by doing weights.. not heavy weights, just reps of 12 or 15 that I could do in sets of 3 and 3 times a week. and for cardio? all I did was walk or run for 20 to 30 min a day 4 times a week. When deciding what to eat, I tryed to think of healthy yet good tasting food. IMPORTANT, when you eat fruits, vegtables, whole grain, beans and protein.. lots of protien.. your helping your body burn fat!
I continued to eat the above and continue my weights and running. When you workout, your brain tells your body not to eat fatty foods! it keeps you very modivated and on task for exercise and healthy eating. You just have to remember not to (have a small snack before bed) only healthy! if you want some more advice or help.. I would be more than happy :)
Good luck!!! Dan

Hey everyone. I am 5'8 and 220lbs!!! Ive been all around the net trying to find a site where i can relate to people and get encouragement to lose weight. But everywhere i go, people are whining about needing to lose like 5 lbs and saying they are fat.. That just makes me mad! lol. I know everyone has their proplems with themselvs, and they may think or be a little overweight.. But I feel so alone here! I need to lose like 70-90 lbs! Which is a heck of a lot! Is anyone out there anywhere near my weight and understands where im coming from?

Looking at these posts, I see most of you are trying to lose 10-20 pounds. Is there anyone (like me) who is heavier and trying to lose 50-60 pounds? I would love talking to other teens who also have severe weight problems, and are trying to lose a lot of weight. We could motivate each other to succeed. :o)-Arsa

I am 12 years old, 5'2" and about 110-115 pounds. I am very unsatisifed with my weight. I don't consider myself FAT, but overweight. All the other girls at my school are skinny, and the other day, this girl said she liked me pants, but they would probably fall down if she wore them. It really hurt my feelings, and I am very self-conscious about my weight now. I skateboard, but that doesn't seem to help. Please gimme some advice! I could really use it!

Hey everybody! You have a British visitor here! Anyway, I'm about 11 stones (I'm not sure what that is in pounds, if u know, please tell me!!) I'm not really overweight but I hate the fact that I'm larger than all of my friends. I just pick at food all day. If I'm bored, I'll just go see what's in the kitchen and if there's something there, I'll eat it, then go back for more. I carry on this way til I'm not hungry and then have to eat dinner so my mum doesn't realise what I've been doing!! I'm losing the fight as I have no willpower-all I want to loose are a few ponds!Please help of write back either here or e-mailme at: tebz@infospacemail.com Cheeeeers!!!

Hey everyone... When I was younger I was large too. It was really hard on me so I know what you kids are going through. I just wanted to tell you though that it gets easier as you get older...even if you don't lose weight. When you get older and get out of school people mature and accept you as who you are. I know that me saying this doesn't make it any easier on you now, but trust me, things will get better.In the meantime, try not to focus so much on "weight." Focus instead on health and being healthy. Adopt a few lifestyle changes and add in a bit of exercise. Keep in mind that exercise doesn't have to be boring! Find something fun like badminton, volleyball, soccar or whatever you like. Exercise can be fun too. Anyway, take care kids. I'm sending ((((((((hugs))))))) out to all of you. :o)

I just need some support right now. My mom and I have stopped walking because we've been busy lately and now it's getting colder outside, so it's going to be even harder to get started again. I'm a Christian and I would just like some prayers right now. The teenage years can be very hard because of all the emotional problems. One moment you're pepped and all ready to lose some weight, then the next you're all down in the dumps and depressed. But I would like to say that this a great website. I just discovered it today and I've never experienced seeing what other kids think and being able to respond to their problems. It truly is wonderful and I hope we won't take it for granted. I'll be prayin' for y'all. GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!

2 summers ago i lost 25 pounds and felt great, but when school started again, i lost control and started buying lunch, which was not the best thing to do. Now, i can't get any willpower to do it again. I have gained all the 25 pounds back and feel bad and i know i have to lose, but just starting is a problem. I came across this site and am finding it a great help. Most of the places around are for older people, not teens, and its great to have a place that understands what we are going through and makes it a little easier to lose by not selling anything or using those big technical tersm. Anyway, i would just like to say good luck to everyone here on their goals. Mine is 50 pounds, and I'M GOING TO MAKE IT.
