Ht. 5'2", Start: 170 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - Does anyone know what to do to make a uniform bigger? My school uniform is too small for me, but mom can't afford a new one so I have to keep this one.
The problem is, the skirt is soooooo tight it hurts and gives me red marks all round my waist, and the shirt is too short to cover my belly properly sothe bit that sags over my skirt's waistband is totally uncovered. So I need a bigger uniform really soon, can anyone help?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 132 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - Hello teens, My name is Jolene and I posted here in June asking for advice about my adopted son John. He's 13 and last June he was 61" tall and 132 pounds. His pediatrician at that time told his father and me that John was obese and to help him lose weight.Last Tuesday, we took John back for another physical(he just started 8th grade and he wants to play sports, so the district requires current physicals for all such students. John grew 1" taller and he gained 33 pounds over the summer. I know John has a huge appetite and knew he gained weight this summer because we had to buy all new school clothes for him because he couldn't even pull the nice pants he wore last June over his legs and hips, but I had no idea he had gained so much weight. Yesterday we went to a neighbor's house for a end of summer party. They have a pool, and so John was there in his boardshorts... (view more)

BMI takes no account into how much muscle mass you have. I personally hate BMI and think it is another way of trying to put people down. Remember to stay strong during your journey.

Honestly, I didn't think it would get this far. My weight is so up and down, I could lose and gain a couple pounds in the matter of a week. I don't get much support at home. My friends and family just don't really get it and I can't go to them after a binge or anything. I guess I am kind of in need of a buddy on here. Thanks!

Ht. 6'0", Start: 235 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - I'm at a point in my life right now where I get total control of my destiny. I want to fly one day, for a living, with a major airline. My dad will pay for my flight school, but not without first loosing some weight to show him I'm serious. It's so much harder than I thought. At first, the idea was gum. I put gum in my mouth, and it's an excuse to say no more. It worked, and I recommend it, but then I started taking the gum out. I guess I just need the strength to keep it in. I need to turn this around.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 160 lb, Today: 143 lb (BMI %tile: 82), Goal: 120 lb - Hey everyone another quick update...
I'm so happy that all the hard work has paid off! I still have weight to lose because I'm not where I want to be yet but this is a start! I still have a chubby belly but hopefully that will soon go!
I went on holiday and we did loads of walking everyday and because it was really hot you sweat loads so that made me lose about 7 pounds on 2 weeks!!
I'm really happy that I'm not overweight anymore just gotta try and keep it off and lose more!
If anyone wants any advice then just talk

Ht. 4'11", Start: 610 lb, Today: 680 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 300 lb - Hi. I know I am probably the heaviest person to use this site, but I am really getting to a hard time. I cant figure out a way to lose weight. I can barely walk, my belly hangs past my knees so i have a lot of back pain. i cant find any clothes at all that fit. the thing I would like to find the most is pants and bras, I seem to be too big for normal sizes. If anyone knows a doctor that could help me that would be great. I keep falling which is making my health/ mobility worsen. Thanks, Nia
