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.

I am 15 and I used to be a little heavy all my life. When I was 14 i got so fed up that I stopped eating and became anorexic. Since then I have been daignosed with a disease that uses steroids to control. Steroids made me gain a whole lot of weight, i went from about 86 pounds to about 115. They also make you feel very hungry. I just got off the medicine but the weight isn't coming off, i feel really bad about myself, and i feel like i want to stop eating again, but it is so hard. I constantly complain about being fat. I need some help to eat well and feel better about myself.

I have always been really skinny, until 3rd grade. I am now in 7th. I gained a lot of weight since then. I always tell people i need to go on a diet and loose 20 lbs, and they all freak out and say, "Oh my gosh Sara, you are so not fat!" I have a boyfriend, and everyone thinks he is a total hottie. I am 5'2'' and i weigh 137 lbs, is that overweight? I can't make up my mind if i am fat or not. PLEASE TELL ME IF I AM OVERWEIGHT?!

I am overweight and I have what I think is a good personality. I have been introduced to many guys over the phone, and through friends, and they tell me that our personalities match and that it would be cool to meet, but as soon as they see me, they change their minds. Why do people care so much about weight in our society?
