Before you post a reply saying that you are overweight or that you want to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator
. If the calculator says that you are healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that you are overweight or that you want to lose weight. This offends the kids who really are overweight. Thanks a lot.

Ht. 5'6, Wt. 125 - I am doing a research report for school on overweight children and I was hoping that this website would help me.I am proud of all of you for starting somewhere or even trying to live a healthy life. While doing this research report, I want you to all realize that there are many health risks in being overweight. In the past 2 years, I have lost a total of 45 pounds and plan to keep it off the rest of my life. I was once overweight and know exactly how it feels to be the fat person. I know what it feels like to be emotionally addicted to food; but now food only means something nutritional that I need to put in my body. I want to give you all the best of luck in making your lives healthier. You have to start somewhere...although it isn't easy... it is worth it in the end. I promise! If any of you need any type of motivation please send me a message, I would love to hear from any of you.
