Ht. 5'1", Start: 175 lb, Today: 148 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 115 lb - So all my life I have always been a "bigger" kid because I was my moms first child and she didn't know how much to feed me so often I would over eat and I started gaining weight due to this (DISCLAIMER: I'm not blaming my weight gain on my mom she just wanted to make sure I was healthy). I am still currently finding ways to lose more weight because I love myself no matter what, but I would like to improve because of sports I'm doing such as softball, powerlifting, and shot-put. Another motive for me is my friends, they don't make any rude comments and are always supportive of me but I feel like the "fat" one of the group and I don't want to feel that way anymore. I tend to get on diets and do good for a week then give up because I did bad one day, and I want to stop that, plus I'm not a picky eater so that has it's advantages and disadvantages. If anyone on here going through or has gone through this issue and knows a good diet to stay on please tell me because it would help a lot!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 193 lb, Today: 191 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 180 lb - I'm not empirically large, but I am the least fit person in my ROTC company. I can barely run more than thirty paces at a time. I can do probably five pushups. I even had to fall out of formation during the march...how do I improve? I've been going to PT, but it doesn't seem to have done much yet. Any help would be appreciated - my kik is marcoismarco

Ht. 5'8", Start: 19 st 0, Today: 20 st 5 (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 9 st 0 - I've been fat for as long as I can remember, but my weight really started to balloon at 10/11. No reason, but i started gaining 2-ish stone a year and haven't stopped. I used to be horribly insecure and I'm not anymore but I'm scared I'm gonna die in my 20s, I;m morbidly obese, pre-diabetic and have high cholesterol and blood pressure. When I found out I was morbidly obese I wanted to change but I can't stop stuffing myself with junk food even though I know I'm killing myself. I don't know how to control myself.  (Note: 20 st 5 is 285 lb.)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 467 lb, Today: 467 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - So my mom found this website the other day and suggested I get on here. I've struggled with my weight for nearly my whole life, only recently have I really started to pack on the pounds. At the begininning of this year I weighed a little under 300 lbs, now I'm closer to 400 lbs. I don't know what to do, every time I try to diet i just end up gaining more and more! Pls leave your Kik down below if you want to talk!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 265 lb, Today: 265 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 165 lb - I've always had weight issues but it didn't become a problem for me until I was 9 and my teacher called me a fatass and then when my weight was always the subject of discussion. People always told me I'd be so much prettier if I was 50 plus lbs lighter. I tried really unhealthy was to lose weight, gained it right back after I'd get sad or made fun of. It feels impossible to lose the weight and to keep it off.. please help.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 214 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - I'm a plus size person and for as long as I remember I have always been obese. My weight makes me so self conscious and so insecure that I hate myself. I'm constantly adjust my clothes to try to attempt to hide my body but I know people still know that I'm fat. I don't like shopping with my friends because I usually can't buy clothes at the same places as them because they don't have my sizes and I usually just end up buying jewelery. I feel embarrassed and ashamed of my body. I'm a natural blonde with blue eyes and there's the stereotype that blondes are supposed to be super pretty and thin; but I always feel like there's something wrong with me and I'm not good enough for anything because I'm not like that society's idea of how blondes should be. I always try losing weight but it never seems to work out. I wish I had more self confidence and felt good about my self; I feel like losing weight would help with that.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 183 lb, Today: 183 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 183 lb - I really need to lose weight as I am really just not healthy. I have done a BMI and I am classed as obsese which I really what every 16 year old wants to hear! I always say I'll start a new healthy lifestyle but always end up giving in! I just know though this time if I don't lose weight I will just carry on gaining weight and it will be even harder to lose weight. I have gained so much weight this year and over the last few years and that has to stop as I am fed up of being the fat friend!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 15 st 0, Today: 15 st 0 (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 9 st 7 - Hello, I am an obese British girl and I have struggled with my weight my entire life. My family always eat junk food and there are personal issues that have caused much depression mainly around me and my mother, and so we binge eat a lot. I've lost weight in the past, but I've gained it all back due to the lack of support and things going wrong that have driven me to binge. A friend and a fellow dieter to support me would surely do me the world of good, and maybe even a strong friendship would come out of this in the long run. My Skype is BlossomsBloom. I don't mind where you're from, because the struggle is all the same. :)  (Note: 15 st 0 is 210 lb.)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 155 lb, Today: 153 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 130 lb - So I'm 153lb but my weight keeps going up and down. At the start of this week I was 2lb more and then I went down but before that it's really strange and always changes even though I do a lot of excercise and try to eat well. I know that my weight may not be a big deal to some people but the NHS says its overweight for me and I don't like being the girl that has the skinny friends and know that I eat better than them and have it not pay off. My sister went through this phase when she was my age but she quickly lost all of it and I don't understand why it's not happening to me when I'm trying my best.

Ht. 5'11", Start: 199 lb, Today: 197 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 160 lb - Started my weight loss today. After so many years of being "that fat boy" I've decided to change that. I was very overweight when I was between the ages of 8 and 11 but slimmed down as time went on. I was still very chubby but nowhere near as overweight as I was then. I started to gain some weight back and because of some personal issues, I decided to join here.
