Ht. 5'4", Start: 212 lb, Today: 204 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - hey everyone! i just wanted to share my story. reading some of yours made me realize that there are other people out there just like me! i know how it feels to go shopping for bathing suits or shorts or any kind of clothing for that matter and all you want to do is cry! but i recently realized that the reason i got so upset with how my body looked in clothes was because i was shopping in the wrong departments. i love the juniors department clothing at khols. but to tell you the truth, a lot of the stuff i liked didn't fit me. their pants fit fine but only in the biggest size they offer, size 17. so my mom dragged me over to the misses department. turns out, they actually have some really cute shirts and even pants! and i found out that those sizes made me feel better about my body and felt more comfortable! i am on my way to my goal weight, although it's hard and i've already hit a few...

Ht. 5'4.5", Start: 206 lb, Today: 201 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - i am 14 yers old and have never had a bofriend. Guys laugh at me and ask me out when they are just joking. My best friend weighs ony about 105 (lol) idk but she is soo skinny. Not like too skinny but she is nothing like me. I cant even go shopping for a swimsuit, shorts, or just regular stuff without breaking into tears. Most of my weight is from my dads genes but why does it have to be so hard to lose weight. I walk and/or ride my bike about 9- 18 miles a week but it is not a regular thing. Mainly just walking to the ball diamonds or to my friends house about 2-5 times a week and back which is about 1.5- 2 miles away.
I also have trouble finding clothing that fits and looks good on my body type if it fits the neckline is too low or if the neckline is right then the shirt itself is too tight. pants are not that hard to find for me. Bathing suits are a different story. I hate my thighs. "thunder thighs" some people would call them.
Any tips or comments are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Kayla

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 220 lb - Well, to start, i can only go to certain stores to get my clothes. In American Eagle, i fit into a XXL shirt and pants, and nothing below that (without exposing my plush belly - haha) I love super low rise jeans, and I wear them all the time, but my fat always flops over the top of them (and I get made fun of sometimes, but just by my friends). I HATE regular jeans, they just feel weird on my belly. I like having my belly hanging freely tho. more about shirtss, i also wear tight fitting shirts because i love all the patterns on them! haha

Ht. 5'6", Start: 170 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 125 lb - Actually there are stores that you can get "plus" size clothing. Best one is Aeropostale. It can go up to size 17 (in teens. also the shirts that can be polos or any other can go up to XXXL. Only online- but it's for a reasonable cost and nice. Hope this helps someone!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 241 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 150 lb - The best place for plus size girls to shop is TORRID! Hands down! Visit their website: www.torrid.com It is a store for ONLY plus size girls/women! It can be pricey but they always have great sales in the stores. Hope that helps someone!

Ht. 5'11", Start: 190 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 174 lb - Clothing is hard to find. Don't shop at places that are brand names because you'll be trying to hard to squeeze into something that isn't right for you. Old Navy has nice clothes for heavier people, as does many other places. So don't be discouraged! :):)

Ht. 5'8.5", Start: 165 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 140 lb - Hey guys! i just wanted to put ina few suggestions of places that are great to shop. first off, totally avoid the brand name stores like hollister/american eagle, etc. they only cater to size 2 girls with no chest or butt >.< but places i've found that have a great diversity (even though i'm usually a large these places are good for all sizes) are macy's/j.c. penney, etc (department stores) and my personal fav, d.e.b., which has a super cute plus-sized section. my friend bought a dress from there for homecoming and looked absolutely stunning!! :) ALSO, forever 21 is coming out with a new line called faith 21, which is specifically for curvylicious girls lol

Ht. 170 cm, Start: 87 kg, Today: 79 kg (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 50 kg - Golly gee,I cant beleive I acctually bought something from Terra Nova.They only have 3 sizes S,M and L.I can only fit into an L shirt,but my pants size is XXL.Plus,I had to get something for my friends birthday,she is S size,both pants and shirt(luuucky).
But I wanted to buy something for me to get me motivated for my weightloss.You would think size L is large,but no its not at all.Its for a skinny girl with stick legs and no butt,but with broad hips,just like I would look if I lost weight.They are soo cute.You could never buy plus size pants that look that good.And I bought a cool shirt size M.But it doesnt fit around my fat arms lol.Maybe 50 kg is a little low,but many girls taller than me have weight below 60 kg,and I dont see why I cant do it.Plus,I am a medium frame,so I wont look too bony.And my S size friend is as tall as me and a size S and weights 47 kg,but she doesnt look ...
