Ht. 5'4", Start: 210 lb, Current: 162 lb, Goal: 130 lb - It's getting hot so it's beginning to get even harder to avoid ice cream. I put a little ice-cream (about 2 scoops) in a small bowl and then after that I began craving more and I tried to stop myself but I just found myself going bcak to the freezer and puting in 2 more scoops this time bigger. I mean what the freak is my problem? I hate how sugar is so addictive and now I feel like a fat idiot. I could've controlled myself but I didn't! just because I wanted more..I went and got some. I know I shouldn't dwell on it now that the damage is done but I really wanted to get back on track. It seems that I keep screwing up, just when I'm doing good! I have to go pick my brother up from school and it's about a 2 mile walk. Will that help burn the ice-cream cals off? ugh, I'm so mad at myself.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 198 lb, Current: 198 lb, Goal: 168 lb - so basiclly I want to lose about 30 pounds in about 2 and a half months. I seriously think that I can do it if I put my mind to it. BUT the problem is I have a huge addiction to food! I can't stop eating even though I know the things I'm eating are bad for me. My best friend is extremely skinny (it runs in her family.) She is so tiny compared to me and sometimes it makes me feel really bad about my image. I do excercise alot but excercising is no good when I go and eat ice cream and cookies an hour later. So if you have any ideas on how to cope with my food addiction please do tell!! thanks

Ht. 5'7", Start: 182 lb, Current: 182 lb, Goal: 130 lb - Hi. I used to post here a lot, but I stopped for a while. Since not posting here, I've gained 32 pounds. Yeah.... Not good. I figure posting here will help bring it back down. I have a candy addiction. Don't have a problem with fast food, candy is my Kryptonite. I'm very active, on a swim team and other sports, it's just the startling amounts of sugar that does it.... Suggestions?

Ht. 5'7", Start: 240 lb, Current: 233 lb, Goal: 125 lb - I am 15 years old. I don't know why I eat so much. I am trying to lose weight by eating three-four Lean Cuiseans a day with water and veggies. I have an addiction and I don't know how to cut it. My parents tell me eat more veggies. I ate an entire bag of salad without dressing and it didn't phase me at all, I just want more. What I am I to do? Please help. Steve

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.

Ht. 5'4'' - just looking over some of the message boards, it was so depressing to see people having crisises over a size or two.. especially when i need to lose like 150lbs.. im so glad people want to better themselves but im not sure people realize the impact of health and weight.. im a sophomore and recently, in class we started a project called fast food nation.. well we discussed how fast food affects our lives, then watched this movie called Supersize Me.. watch it and be prepared for a reality check.. before i always wanted to lose weight so people would like be but now i want to do it for myself, so ill like myself.. i have a food addiction, im a binge compulsive eater and this is my 1st time posting here.. it seems helpful and i hope it will help me but its going to be so hard.. i live with my mom, brother and grandparents.. and my grandparents love junk food, not to mention theyre the ones going shopping.. so basically i have to choose to pic the sad carrot over the box of donuts or bag of chips.. plus the soda.. i love soda, and i drink like so much.. but thats all my parents buy.. and they wont give up their junk food habits for me.. so basically i wonder if i should just give up and eat myself into the grave.. its like putting a drug addict in a drug house and telling them to stop the drug abuse!

Ht. 5'3, Wt. 308 - Hi, i'm 15 i live in england and i am 22 stone!!! thats 308 pounds. I want to go to a fat camp but my parents cant afford it. Is there a strict and hard weight loss camp? I know that if i could just lose the wieght at camp, i would enjoy being thin so much i would just not eat. Does anybody know of a hard and gruelling camp or does anyone just want to talk about thier experiences. I have no friends, because people dont want to know anyone who is fat. I am so depressed that my school work is suffering. People laugh and stare at me when i go out.I am addicted to food.I spend all my money on it-macdonalds,kfc,burgerking. I cant help myself. Even my old friends are begining to get embarrassed I but i am disgusting. Does anyone know of a cheaper than usual wieght loss camp. Please help me. or just chat.  (Note: 1 stone (st) equals 14 pounds.)

My mum is such a b*tch!!!! I asked her "can you please stop buying junk food, I really think it would make us healthier and we might lose a little weight" you know what she said?? "No, I need it" I said she sounded like a drug addict and she agreed!!!! (she is majorly obese[as am I])I told her "please stop buying the junk food, I have no will power and you always offer it too me. We aren't healthy and I think this would be a good idea" she goes "if you want to lose weight we should find a plan and stick to it, I'll find one, until then I'll eat my chocolate bars" that was two months ago!!!What can I do to stop myself from eating the candy and junkfood she CONSTANTLY buys?? Thanks Guys. You guys are great.
