Ht. 5'4", Start: 130 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Hey everyone I have a lot to get off my chest so please bear with me for a minute. I started having problems two years ago. I am 5'4" and was 130 then, so I was happy. Last year I grew up to 150 mainly because I ate too much crap and didn't exercise. Getting bigger wasn't fun, but I guess I was a little too busy to notice and it was only 20 pounds. I could tell i was hefty but 150 is not super fat. Now this year I am just around 170 and still 5'4 which is no fun now i really am fat. i try to stop it but i have bad habits and am just lazy i dont do much during the summer. i already gained 5 pounds since school ended and i dread having to go back there and i will probably be close to 180. i never used to have a big belly like this before either and it bothers me the way it sticks out and rolls over etc. i dont really mind my butt and thighs arms etc. all that much they look kinda good with some shape but i would like to try and get to like 160 and hold it and smaller tummy please help me out

try changing one bad habit at a time- like instead of coke drink water for however long till you're used to it.Then change another small bad habit and so on... i know it'll take a while but those chnges will last for a long time afterwards and besides, it took a long time to put on the weight right? so it'll probably take a while to take it off for good also.

Hello Suse. I have some quick ways you can lose weight fast! When you feel like you want something like ice cream have something like an apple. Walk sometime do any excersise becuase it is summer! If you have a dog walk he/she, they will help. I play travel soccer so that is what I do to get some extra fat off of me before soccer season! I hope it works!
