Ht. 5'2", Start: 150 lb, Today: 117 lb (BMI %tile: 64) - Hi - I'm Katelin. I'm 15 years old and I've not had any success in loosing weight. It feels like no matter what I do. I struggled with a severe case of binge eating disorder for 3 years. (5th, 6th and 7th grade) I was going through a lot of emotional turmoil and was beginning to see symptoms of my now diagnosed general anxiety disorder and depression. Of course, I had no clue how to deal with that, so I turned to food. I binged in between two and four times a day and all of my binges tended to exceed 1,000 calories. I quickly shot up in weight, and at my heaviest, I was 150 and 4'11, making me ever so slightly obese. (BMI 30.3)
I ended up telling my mom about the binging, (I had been able to easily hide it, because I was on a medication with a side effect of weight gain) and soon thereafter saw a therapist. It took me over a year to stop binging after seeking help, but I am now 3 inches taller, 33 pounds down, and pretty healthy! I still struggle with severe body image issues, but overcoming the eating disorder that controlled my life and literally made me addicted to food is amazing.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 180 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 130 lb - Hi Guys :).. So I have been overweight since I was very young, always eating and satisfying my emotions with food and overeating. Lately I have been feeling as if I am addicted to sugar, I get really moody if I don't eat sugary foods. I have been on a healthy eating plan but it is more like a roller coaster ride. being overweight I struggle with depression and no energy at all. I would love to help motivate others on their journey as well. So is any one looking for a weight loss buddy?

Ht. 5'8", Start: 395 lb, Today: 395 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - I have been overweight since I was about 10 years old. I really want to lose weight and be healthier, but I do feel as if im addicted to food. I'll be full and still go back for more and being almost 400 pounds at the age of 18 scares me. If anyone has any advice they can give me or any support groups out there or ways to help me, please let me know on here or you can email me at thanks :(

Ht. 5'4", Start: 191 lb, Today: 144 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 130 lb - Hello everyone, Its been years since ive come on this site, and just like everyone else i constantly have struggled with my weight, depression and stress. Slowly throughout the years I have brought my weight down. But as a normal human being I slip and fall off the tracks once in awhile. I see there are alot of you on here struggling and or just want some motivation. I know how you feel! I completely 100% believe we become addicted to sugar & FOOD. We are ALL human and its stressful & emotional challenging. Remember everyone if we would have stuck to our "healthy eating" & gym routines 6 months ago we would have been alot closer then we are today. BUT that also applies to 6 months from now, once we commit and get motivated. Im not saying keep putting it on the back burner but we ALL have second chances to redeem ourselfs, and we have the opportunity 6 months or a year from now to look back and say, f yeah i did it. KEEP YOUR HEADS HIGH. In the past year I have spent alot of time studying nutrition, diets, macro nutrients & health & fitness in general. A close friend of mine is a register personal trainer & have gained alot of knowledge in the past year to benefit my weight loss journey, If any of you are ever feeling low, depressed, or just need a friend shoot me an email! If you guys want any tips/ tricks or want to ask any questions i would love to answer them to my knowledge. I am not a professional nor am i finished my weight loss journey just want to make people smile & help/motivate to my ability :) Have a great day everyone!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 229 lb, Today: 225 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I am so upset. I keep promising myself to go on a diet and I always end up breaking it or never go on it. I am starting tomorrow and this time I plan on keeping on it. The thing with me is will power. It's hard because my parents buy sweets but that isn't my big problem. My problem is fast food. I am addicted. It's just hard because I trap myself inside the house because I feel like everywhere I go everyone is making fun of me. Especially when I eat out. I just don't know anymore. It's getting to the point where I don't wanna leave the house. Ugh.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 320 lb, Today: 345 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 250 lb - I never used to consider myself to be unhealthy. Yes, I am morbidly obese. But I see myself as thin, and overall am healthy. My knees started to give out in the last year, and I started having back problems. I figured these were just natural things and refused to accept that they were being caused by my massive weight. So I continued to ignore it, and gain more weight. My family is all massively obese, so nobody cares that I keep gaining. A few days ago, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I only eat fast food and drink up to 6 cans of soda a day, and have for as long as I can remember.
I am a huge emotional eater and will sometimes spend entire days sitting in front of the tv and eating thousands of calories worth of food, only stopping when I feel close to vomiting. My parents make fun of me sometimes because they always find me asleep with the food still in my hands, and because I am the fattest of all of them, but I can't help it. my doctors have said that I wont be able to walk in a few years if I keep gaining the way I have been, and I could die if I don't get control of my diabetes. I need help, so if you guys have any tips, I'd really appreciate it.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 160 lb, Today: 156 lb (BMI %tile: 95) - I've been chubby since around 5th grade, just a bit, but it spiraled in 8/9th grade. well I just completed 9th grade last week and the whole year I felt different from all of my friends and that I couldn't rlly connect and for various reasons had severe depression and gained 20 lbs to my highest weight 160. well I'm going to a new high school next year so this summer I've been eating well and excersizing 45-60 minutes. I don't have a scale so my weights are estimates but I'll get one. I want to be about 115 (I'm 5'2", & have some serious curves) & get involved in grls basketball (I have some talent, but I've never played formally or very much in general). believe in urself and u REALLY CAN DO IT!! my friends say I'm not fat jst curvy cuz I'm half latina BUT I know I am fat (my doctor too) and I can be in AWESOME shape at 115. think about how hot & amazing ull look in high waisted shorts!! I rlly want to RELATE and be similar to my friends at my new school and mess with some guys. I'm also recovering from dermatillomania and have a junk food addiction so if I can do this (only 5 days but going very strong!!) YOU CAN AND SHOULD TOO! you don't want to due from type 2 diabetes or heart problems like many fat ppl do. just live without regret or burden and be HAPPY for thesake of it. thank u <33333
