Ht. 4'8", Start: 98 lb, Today: 98 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 70 lb - My school tops look hideous on me. I wear hoodies around school to partially hide it but the teachers get arsey and take it off me. So i'm stuck in a highly unflattering polo-shirt. To make matters worse my mum ends up shrinking everything she washes. help?

Ht. 5'7", Start: 157.5 lb, Today: 157 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 135 lb - Hi, I'm not the biggest girl and I feel confident in most of my clothes but when it comes to shorts I'm a little skeptical. My thighs are huge when I sit but I love shorts and I need help finding shorts and bathing suits to feel pretty. My "friends" are like size 00-7 but I'm an 11... And I think they sit and talk to me because they feel sorry for me but I buy soooo much clothes its unthinkable but I LIVE TO SHOP!!! And summer is my favorite season soo I need to lose thighs fast or find shorts that a short but long enough to "hide" them.. Btw I'm the biggest loner in school because of my weight.):

I know I do just last year I was wearing a bikini and now I have gained so much weight from being injured and not able to workout.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 168 lb, Today: 158 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 145 lb - So I fit in regular clothes, but how do you know when to wear plus sized. I wear tee shirts and I'm fine on pants. But if I were to get a nice shirt how would I know weather to get a normal one or a plus sized one? Also I've never tryed on any plus sized thing, so I have no reference.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 142 lb, Today: 142 lb (BMI %tile: 85), Goal: 125 lb - I feel so horrible about my weight. Last time I was weighed in I was 142 and it's still considered overweight. I was like but i lost 14 lbs! Today's weight isn't accurate because I think I gained more. :( I wear an 11 in pants which means I dropped a pants size. When it first happened I was so enthusiastic about it. But it seems like i can't go any lower. I haven't been shopping lately but my 11 pants feel big, but I mostly wear Arizona so I'm scared to try anything else. I wish I could be in a 3 or a 5 like my friends. Please try to motivate me!!!!!

Ht. 4'9", Start: 104 lb, Today: 104 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 95 lb - Hi!! I'm selena and I just wanna let you know I used to be really big then I was diganosed with stage 1 diabetes and I used to have problems with clothes too but jcp has a plus size section and there clothes made me feel good now I have lost my weight and am looking toward 95 lbs I have nine to go and hoping I can before November if not before that!!!! I hope this helps you to lose weight bc I had to cut back on lots and lots I have a cheat maybe once every 2 weeks or even later but it's better to be small and have a little to lose than big and have more to lose so keep going all of you bc I made it it just takes ability and strength and I had it in me!!!!!!!
