Tip of the day..."Try eating more often, but more simple. Try eating small amounts every 1 or 2 hours.. such as a banana or apple. fruits and vegtables are the best.. plus.. lots of water! lots and lots!"On a personal level... I benched 270 today.. I was quite happy:)Mr. Dan

Hey! I've been reading most of your messages and the repies. For the most part they are good. I remember at the end of my 8th grade year I was 5'1" and I weighed 180 lbs. And I wondered why I had never had a boyfriend. I was tired of being worn out after doing simple exercises. And I was so embarrassed of myself I would purposefully avoid swimming pools or anything that had to do with a swim suit. We went to see a doctor about my weight cause we thought maybe I had a thyroid problem. But I didn't. I was just plain and simple FAT. It wasn't that I ate too much it was just I was so inactive. My friends would "tease" me, my grandma was always making comments about my weight in public and to her friends. It really hurt. I finally decided I had to do something. See I have a REAL problem with waiting for things. I want things to be immediate. But I had to learn that weight loss is a gradual... (view more)

Im about 178-185 pounds. Am I am about 5"5 and sometimes I feel bad about myself because my freinds wear tight shirts and they look great in them but I can't wear them because my stomach would come out so far.And my mom told me I could wear them if I lost weight.And also all of the boys at my scool go for the girls that have flat stomach's it doesn't matter how smart that person is as long as they are skinny then everyone at my school wants them!

I am 5'6'' and 152 lbs. I have a stomach msotly and I wear tight clothes that show my stomache. At first before two years ago I was ashamed. I now realize that that its a'' about self confidence and the way you carry yourself. In elementary school I was always teased but WHEN I WAS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL IT STARTED TO STOP. Thats when I started to gain confidence. Since then I have slimmed a little but my stomache is still there. My friends and people at my school started respecting me for all of my self confidence. All in all be confident in yourself and know in god's eyes you are beautiful and people around you will also see the beauty

Hi. Im AJ. Im 15,F, 5'6 and 260-275 lb's. I don't know if I have always been this overweight. I have tried to diet and excersize but i cant do it alone. When I do it with some 1 eles it motervates me to do it. But all my friends are skinner than me, and I don't feel comefretable. I have a lot of stress. A bout a half a year ago I was dissed by my mom. I tried to kill my self. Now I am liveing with my grandparents. When I lived with my mom she called me things like "Fat @$$ and other names. For a hole week I wouldn't eat. I have it in my mind that the reason my mom and dad(I never met my dad) don't want me is because I am fat. I wear size DDD in bra. That hurts. And size 24 in pants. I keep getting bigger and bigger. I think 1 day I am going to explode...(not really) I look at my self in the mera, and I see a beautiful smile, glowing eyes, and then a nasty, peice of fat, that covers my... (view more)

Hey all,
I'm 14, 5'7 and I weigh 165. I go to a very small school and I'm friends with everyone. I have tons of friends and a caring boyfriend and a good life at school. But my parents are getting a divorce. I get soooo depressed I eat. I have gained 30 pounds since last year and I feel awful! I play basketball and fast pitch softball. I'm Pres. of our FCA group, I'm a representative for FBLA, I'm active in 4-h and I'm on the academic team. Why am I not losing weight? Cause I eat like a pig. I'm on a very big diet. I only eat 3 meals a day and 1 snack. I feel very confident right now. I'm willing to talk to anyone bout n*e thing. My e-mail is sports_chic_25@hotmail.com I'm very entergetic my friends describe me as crazy so don't hesitate to talk to me(guys and gurls). God #1.
