Ht. 5'8", Start: 210 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 170 lb - See, I don't eat fastfood, and I don't crave sweets or cake or cupcakes or brownies. I don't really eat sweets or drink sodas. See, I guess that I am kind of a healthy food addict in a way. Milk and water is all I drink, and when I say MILK, its 1 percent. But I've battled with weight problems since I was probably 7. It runs in my dads side of the family. I eat right, sometimes I like to over-eat. And when I was 7 or 8 is when you are introduced to mean girls. And you start to feel bad about yourself. I'm really smart, I was in advanced programs, straight A's, but how you see yourself is main key on how your going to act. Girls would pick on me because of my weight, and I would start to eat healty foods a lot because either I was bored, or I would feel so bad about myself because I never thought I was pretty. Then, I would eat in moderation, and start to run a little more and get involved in sports and I am very happy now :) Girls out there, no matter what mean girls say to you, you are YOU, you are beautiful, no matter what :)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 190 lb, Today: 190 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - I want to lose weight so bad, but I can't start today or tomorrow, I was thinking about starting monday by eating the same foods but eat less portions and cut out my addiction to chips,but when the time comes to me wanting to switch to organic foods,It's going to be hard because my mom will probably not like it because I've always tried to try fad diets and never stay consistent, what can I do?

Ht. 5'3", Start: 195 lb, Today: 309 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - Hi, I'm Rachel. I hate the word "fat" and had always claimed to everyone I wasn't fat, just big-boned because I was too scared to face the truth. I really have gotten fat. I hadn't weighed myself for several years until 2 days ago, and was startled to see the weight I've gained! I eat whenever I am not occupied with something else, and lately this habit has become even worse. I am almost always eating something, usually fast food. After learning about my startling weight gain, 195 to 309, I really looked myself. I barely noticed how large my stomach has become. I can no longer fit in most chairs, and have to purchase 2 airline tickets because I cant fit in a single seat. A few weeks ago I was flying to see my grandparents, and it was so so embarrassing. I tried to fit myself into one seat, but I just couldn't! The button on my jeans (which, apparently, are too small now thanks to my quickly growing stomach) kept coming undone as I tried to force myself into the seat, and I kept bumping into the people around me. My legs and stomach are the worst, I have stretch marks and rolls everywhere. I know I need to lose weight, but the food always looks so good! I can't stop eating, it's an addiction. I can barely find clothes that fit now, please help me stop before I get any bigger!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 150 lb, Today: 124 lb (BMI %tile: 70) - In the matter of only 3 months, I cut out all soda and juice from my diet and just drank water. I lost about 5 pounds in a month without realizing it and when I saw that just a small change in my diet made such a difference to my weight, I gained a whole new confidence to lose the weight so that I can be happy with my body and change my lifestyle. My family and I always ordered lunch and dinner from a fast food restaurant and soon junk food became an addiction and I realized I needed to get my family to stop and thats exactly what I did, and when they did order pizza for example i would never eat it and have some veggies or cereal instead which really helped me not get tempted to eat the pizza and not give up on my diet.Everytime I thought of giving up, I'd think about how sad I am with my body, the fact that I'll never be happy in a bikini when i go swimming which i really love if i stop my diet, and also my health and social life which was pretty bad. Over a couple of weeks, I saw that I was losing a lot of weight and I became even more excited to lose even more weight.A month from when the diet started, I've lost 25 pounds which leaves me at 124 pounds. I now feel more cofident, happier, and excited to wear my bikini in the summer! I now only need to lose 15 more pounds and I'm so excited! If I can do this then you can too! :)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 153 lb, Today: 148 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - So, I've been overweight since I was 5. It sucked. I used to live in Los Angles, and seeing all the skinny celebrities and friends kinda tore down my self confidence. Then, a few months later, I moved to the Virgin Islands. Here, at least 99% of my friends are skinny. Whenever we go to the beach, I'm the only person wearing a one piece:( I want to lose weight for 1 reason. Every year, we have a Middle School Dance. Well.....everyone dances kinda slutty and there is this thing called grinding that they do. The boys only grind really skinny and pretty girls. I WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE GIRLS!!!!! I realized what my problem is. At school, I ask for food from other people. So, I'd eat stuff like juice and cookies everyday. I don't drink a lot of juice anymore( like,a glass a month) but I'm trying to quit my cookie addiction. I'm Weight Watchers and I lost some weight. Wish me luck and leave comments<3

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 242 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 170 lb - Here I am on this site once again! I used this site to help me lose weight before but was unfortunately unable to keep it off.
I am 5 days in on my new journey and so far my spirits are high. I am really coming to terms with the fact that food addiction is real and that I suffer from it. For so long all I could think about is food, I lived my day by what are we eating for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I had a real bad habit of purging at night when no one is watching.
After I watched the series premiere of "I Used To Be Fat" on MTV I decided to challenge myself. I want to lose 90 pounds by June 1st. I think I want and need it so much it is absolutely achievable.
Best wishes to all of you on your weight loss journey :)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 186 lb, Today: 186 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 135 lb - i've been thinking about my weight since i can remember. as a little girl, i've always enjoyed eating. i had a healthy appetite unlike my brother who always had a hard time eating. i was never overweight until recently but i always remember being called fat by my family, my mother and aunt especially. my mom was a personal trainer and she has like this beauty addiction. she's gone under the knife so many times and she's always watching her weight and working out, she even studied nutrition in college. my mom has never been fat though just like my brother she's always been almost sickly skinny. her obessesion with beauty eventually rubbed off on me. i always thought i was fat but the truth was i wasnt. i never got called fat by anybody outside of my mom and aunts and as i look back at pictures from before i realize that there wasnt a reason for me to feel insecure then because quite frankly i was a healthy girl. also to be honest, it isnt the best thing to take beauty advice from women who have had a ton of plastic surgery or who have suffered from bulimia. i didnt know that then so i let them get to me and i didnt appreciate the fact that i could run, i could jog, i could fit into any dress i wanted. that's not the case now. now at 186, i'm fat. now i'm overweight. now my health is at risk. i cant believe i let them get to me. one day i felt like everything didnt matter, that it didnt matter at all what i ate or did because i was going to be 'fat' anyways. so i let myself go, i ate what i wanted when i wanted. i ate things that i knew werent good for me. at first it was in spite of my mother but then it became in spite of me. the funny thing is that day i 'gave up' on myself, i weighed 123 lbs. i remember because the week before i had been in the hospital all week recovering from a blood infection and at the end of my stay they weighed me and i was 123 lbs. i had lost 12 lbs during my stay. i dont know why i thought i was fat at 123 lbs but i felt i was. that's why my goal weight ist 135, which is before my weight was really a problem and i was just fine. now i have a baby cousin and she's the most adorable things and i can see how she can end up like me. one of the things her sister likes to call her is 'lil fatty' when my baby cousin is only 2 yrs old. she isnt fat at all. she's an extremely healthy baby, she runs around and she plays. They dont see how when you grow up being called 'fatty' even if it is a nickname and the person who says it doesnt mean hurt you and says it lovingly can seriously screw up your body image and the way you see yourself in the mirror. i'm going to do my best, growing up she knows that she's just fine and she's beautiful. one thing i can see that will never change wether i'm at 123, 135, 186, or 250 is my confidence. i know i'm beautiful and smart and nobody can convince me other wise. i just need to get the body i deserve. a body that matches who i am in the inside.
