Ht. 5'7", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I'm 13 and have been overweight if not obese for most of my life. I have tried loosing weight so many times I've lost track. At one point I was 175lb and was very motivated to loose weight I lost 15lb but quickly gained it back plus another 40lb. I have a school dance coming up in a few months and would love to lose 20lb by then. I also play softball and can't fit into my uniform without it being skin tight. I don't know what I can do to find motivation or something that will help me through trying to loose this weight. If anyone has any advise for me or anything that will help me get back on track to reach my goals I would love to hear them.

Ht. 5'0", Start: 11 st 1, Today: 11 st 1 (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 9 st 0 - So I have been on here before but like every health kick I do I end up giving up! I really need to lose weight as at the moment my weight is a health issue and I have let it go to far! So today I started doing yoga and I went to the gym! I also cut out most of the bad things or eat like crisps and chocolate and I calorie counted. One thing I'm worried about though is giving in. On about the second day usually I end up getting really upset and comfort eating, and I know I shouldn't but I am an emotional eater! I really hope that I stick to this diet though as I hate being overweight! I can't stand having to get changed for PE at school as my stomach is a great big jelly circular mess compared with all my friend's nice tone stomachs. It's embarrassing! Especially because when I run or even just walk everything jiggles and it takes a few seconds to stop! That's... (view more)  (Note: 11 st 1 is 155 lb.)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 152 lb, Today: 149 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 110 lb - Hello, I'm new here. :) I thought I'd ask for some advise on my biggest problem I've been having. I am losing weight, but I don't notice it on myself. I also can't envision what I will look like, and it scares me. I constantly see "success story" pictures, but I can't imagine myself thin because I haven't been since I was 7. I feel like this is holding me back and I don't know what to do. Help!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 250 lb, Today: 206 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - I haven't been on this in forever. But, a quick update. I gained so much weight over the holidays and got back up to 240. But, I have started my own meal plan now and it is working great. I have lost 20 pounds in a month. I haven't weighed yet and I'm hoping by Monday I can finally be 199. I'm hoping and praying. I haven't been in the 100's in 3 years! SO this will be a big accomplishment for me. I'm going to keep trying. Don't give up ya'll can do it. Stay strong and stay motivated!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 216 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - I want to lose weight so badly that it's unreal. I want to look beautiful when beach season comes around. I want guys to want me, and girls to be jealous of what I look like. That's literally what I have dreamed about for so long now. I just can't lose the weight, it feels like I try so hard every time & it just never happens. I always cave in and end up eating bad food, and not working out. I don't know how to make myself stick to eating good and working out. I know that sounds dumb, but it's just so hard for me. I don't know what to do. I need to lose weight.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 190 lb, Today: 187 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - Hey guys! I'm new here and I must say losing weight is a big challenge for me. I live in a town that is full of girls with the most amazing bodies and I cant help but be envious. Though my number is big I hold my weight well! I'm looking forward to losing this weight because I know there is a skinny girl inside me just dying to come out! My junior prom is coming up and my best guy friend asked me to go. He's gorgeous so him asking made me feel pretty amazing! I want to lose so weight before prom though because the last thing I want to be doing that night is trying to cover up because I feel uncomfortable! REMEMBER EVERYONE: you're all beautiful, don't let anyone tell you other wise and beauty is only skin deep! Reply I would LOVEEE to talk with one of you!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 187 lb, Today: 173 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 125 lb - Hey everyone! Just a quick update. Currently i have been on my weightless plan for about 8 weeks, and I'm so happy to say I've lost almost 15 pounds! I feel better than ever, and now that lacrosse season has started, hopefully that can help with more weightless! Being completely honest here, i feel so great even though physically i have not seen much change yet. Thats why weighing yourself every few weeks or so is really important to staying motivated, because you might not be able to see the results, but they are showing up on the scale. I am so excited to continue, and i hope to be around 165 by the end of march! Its the little goals, and accomplishments that mean the most. Don't give up everyone!! Summers on its way:)

I've been trying to lose weight for a while now, but i'll lose a few pounds, and then think i'll reward my self for a few days and end up gaining it back. I've kept these 5 pounds off for about a month, and was proud. I'm polish, and today was paczki day. paczkis are a kind of polish donut, and today I ate three custard ones as a reward, without seeing how many calories they were. I just checked and they are...take a guess.... 1500 calories. each. thats 4500 calories, not counting my other meals! (they add up to about 750 calories) I ate 5250 calories today! thats more than a pound and a half! Please tell me what I should do. please help me, someone. I feel like puking, I'm so mad at myself, but i don't think that will help. I'm in tears, please help me what do i do I need to lose this weight I ate as much today as I do in a normal week! what do i do?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 187 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 125 lb - Hey guys! So it's been about a month since i really started making progress! I just weighed myself last week and I couldn't be happier that I lost 11 pounds! I've never been able to stay motivated for this long but now that I am I'm so excited to continue on my journey! So far probobly the most important things that I've learned are you can still have junk food like pizza and chicken wings, and Ice cream but all in moderation! It won't kill you, and I still lost weight! Another thing I learned is that it's so important to make sure you've gotten your workout in Atleast 5 times a week. That's really important. thank you guys so much for all the support you've given me and if anyone wants a weightloss buddy I would be glad to give out my kik or my number to anyone
