Ht. 5'4", Start: 172 lb, Today: 172 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 140 lb - I am REALLY freaking out. I'm leaving for college in mid September, and I want to at least be on the way to my goal. I'm just getting so discouraged right now. I just really want to lose the weight, but it's SO hard to not eat what I want when I want. I just want to give up, but I don't want to gain a whole bunch more weight and THEN decide to go on a diet.

Stay calm! Think about it, how important is it to you that you go to college feeling great about yourself? How much do you want to walk along the hallway with total confidence?? Get your i pod on, and go for a walk or jog whilst imagineing what it will all be like once your at college with that great body your wishing for!! Greatest motivation tip i could give you! Good luck :)
