Ht. 5'7", Today: 153.4 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 130 lb - Hi, um, this is my first post. I am 5'7, i weigh 153.4 lbs. My goal weight is somewhere around 125-130, I put 130 on my permit because i did't want anyone to see my real weight. People try to convince me that i'm not "fat" when i complain about it, but i think i am. I'm tired of lying about my weight and I wish i could tell people the truth and be proud of it. I'm trying to eat healthy and i run between 1 and 2 miles every day. But the weight isn't going anywhere! I'm seeing a shirnk about depression but i haven't brought up my weight problems to him. Oh, and I joined track during school and i weighted 144 before i started and almost 160 when i was done, what happened????? Please help me, i'm so confused and embarrassed!~Kelly

I think that the reason you gained weight in your legs is the same reason I gained weight in my legs when I ran, It was because of all the muscle I was building up. Remember muscle is hevier then fat.
