Ht. 5'8", Start: 246 lb, Today: 246 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 210 lb - I've been on this site before and it didn't really help me but now I'm so much more ready to change. I think before I didn't really want to lose weight, I was doing it for other people and not myself which is why it didn't do anything. This time though I have accepted that I need to change. My over all target is 146, but I've put 210 as a goal to break it down a bit. I'm doing this for myself because I'm going to Thailand for a month by myself next August and I want to look amazing in the photos! Does anyone have any tips for what I can do to keep myself busy during the summer holidays to keep me from the fridge? Thanks x

Ht. 5'4", Start: 240 lb, Today: 231 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 220 lb - So I have started this over a week ago and its working I am eating right and tracking how many calories I eat and its working! My parents said if I lose 5 more pounds then I get a new outfit. I guess that's what some of ya'll could think about is setting little rewards after you lose 5-10 lbs.

I am extremely depressed and don't know how to get out of my funk. I have a pretty good life but I can't figure out why I am having these problems.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 185 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - Hi guys,
I know that I am fat because I get teased about it a lot at school. But I feel really self conscious more and more because of the bullying. My family is all very sporty. They are in shape and good looking. My parents constantly shake heads at me like I'm not part of their family. My sister Jennifer weighs 116lbs and she is 13 and my brother Danny weighs 125lbs and he is 14, almost 15. I cant help but think he likes Jennifer better, as a sister. My older brother, is in the military and he appreciates me for who I am but hes hardly ever here. My older sister is away at college too. Every day my mother stands me in the bathroom and weighs me and i hate it pleas ehelp ill post later too

Ht. 5'11", Start: 275 lb, Today: 275 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hi my names kookz and I'm a 16 year old girl. I'm going in my senior year of high school and I really wanted to start off my new year with a new me. I want to get healthy. I want to start working out but I have no motivation and no time. During the school year I wake up at 5 take a shower, get ready and leave by 630 for school. I get home around three. Change. Go straight to work by 3:30 -4:00 work till 10:00 come home, do homework till midnight and then go to bed. I have no time. I work 6 days a week normally and if its not a school day then I'm working 10 hour shifts and am exhausted by the time I get home. Also, where I work I get free burger king and free pizza hut when I go on break. That doesn't help the "healthy eating" goal. Let me know what ya'll think.
