Ht. 5'2", Start: 366 lb, Today: 366 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hello, I've always been quite large so finally my parents decided to do something about it. They sent me too fat camp. Even there I was bigger than the other campers and had trouble participating. By the end I only lost 2 pounds. At home I'm trying to eat better and do more exercise buts its pretty hard when your the size of a baby elephants.
I've been struggling a lot with my extra weight and these are some of the issues I've been dealing with.
#1. Walking around is a bit of a challenge. At my school there are two sets of stairs so witch I've had a lot of trouble walking up. I went and talked to the guidance counselor so I received permission to use the elevators. But even walking short distances I need to take many brakes and I'm dripping with sweat. I've been excused from gym and I try to do light stretches with the guidance counselor.
#2. No... (view more)

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. 5'9", 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!
