Ht. 5'7", Start: 165 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 141 lb - This is way harder then I thought it would be. I have tons of cravings that are hard to resist ( because i love eating) but I don't give in. I don't like being overweight because people look at you differently and you aren't good at sports or anything like that. I just want to be healthy.

Ht. 5'4.3", Start: 202.6 lb, Today: 190 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 145 lb - I'm kind of confused. I sorta feel like I want to be sad. I must sound insane but it's really hard to explain. My mom was skinny all her life and same with my dad, my brother, and rest of my family, but me, I've been overweight my entire life. Even when I was 4 I was bigger than everyone else. Why did I get the rotten end of the stick? It makes me so mad I just feel like crying sometimes. One minute I'm fine, and the next minute I just want to scream. It's gotten to the point where it's hard to walk to school and down the hallways because I feel so ugly and fat. I wanted to make myself throw up today, and I'm still not passed the thought. I know it's a bad idea but part of me is blind to why it's so bad. I should know better, I really should, but I'm just so fed up with how hard it's become for me just to walk out in public, or join a class outside because I feel so ... (view more)

Ht. 5'4.5", Start: 212 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 135 lb - I've always been a bigger person, always overweight even when I was a kid. I've always hated it and wished to be thin. I got bullied about my weight growing up, it really lowered my self esteem. I was depressed. Then in november 2012 I decided to lose weight, it was unhealthy. I was starving myself, I lost 20lbs in a month. I felt horrible all the time but I loved the way I was looking. Then at chistmas time I slipped into my old binge eating ways and gained a few pounds back. Luckily I snapped out of it and decided to lose weight the healthy way. Now I eat balenced portions and exerize regularly. I've lost 30lbs total and I'm not going to stop until I reach my goal (:

Ht. 5'5", Start: 183 lb, Today: 177 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 120 lb - Hi guys!! well im just really looking to lose some weight! This journey for me has been going on for too long and im tired of giving up and starting over again.I am currently at 177 pounds and im 14. I am really wishing to be in a bikini by summertime, but im not sure if thats too healthy because i have almost 60 pounds to lose. Ive been on this site and have just looked around and it seems pretty cool so i thouhgt i would give it a shot. Originally, i wanted to lose weight for the wrong reasons, but now i am just focused on getting my life back. I am a competitive swimmer, and i am on club, but my weight has really held me back a lot. im tired of settling for bad times because of my weight, and being judged because of it too. i have so many suporters which is great, but a lot of the time i find myself being completly insecure. I would like some feedback from some people and maybe have a weight loss buddy! That would be great! Thanks so much!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 209 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Hi, I've been overweight my whole life. I've never been skinny, even when I was younger. I never really wanted to do anything about it until my sophomore year. I gained 20 pounds once I quit softball and I didn't like my weight. Summer of '12 I decided I needed to lose weight because I was switching to a new school and wanted to be thinner. I started to do all there crazy fasts, such as water diets or the rice diet. I need up going from 210 to 290. I started eating regular again and I stayed under 200. I started softball again but I ate bad. I went back up to 209 after Christmas break and decided I needed a new start in this new year. I cut out all junk and am only eating healthy food. I workout 5 days a week. I've been doing this for a week and have lost 6 pounds. I will try to keep you guys posted monthly on my progress. By summer I want to be able to wear a bikini! Wish me luck guys. (:

Ht. 5'3", Start: 189 lb, Today: 183 lb (BMI: 32), Goal: 130 lb - I started my weight loss journey a year ago. My first month, I loss 12lbs with healthy eating and exercise....then I gained it all back. I've had a few setbacks, but continuing my journey. I have no motivation or supportive people in my corner, so that makes things a lot harder.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 110 lb, Today: 188 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 142 lb - Hey! I sadly weight around 186-190lbs. I've started getting overweight by the time I was 10yrs. When I was 9, I weighed 85lbs but by the time I turned 10 I was like 110lbs.Thats ridiculously to much weight gain! I hate being fat and I feel very ugly inside my body. I know I have curves and I nice shaped body and I really want to lose weight to show it off. My goal weight is around 140-145lbs since i'm 5'5 and it'll be good for my BMI!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 150 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - I don't think I've been overweight my whole life. I really started to put on pounds my freshman year of high school, I went from 150lbs to a now hefty 210lbs (give or take) I'm now a junior in high school. I'm really active and play soccer all year round and softball in the fall. Oh and i forgot to mention that I'm 5"4 (again give or take half an inch). No matter how hard I exercise I never lose any weight, I exercise for 2 hours a day. I NEVER eat breakfast and eat all the lunch that my school provides. For dinner my mom makes it and its always well balanced and well proportioned. Does anyone else have this issue?
I just wanted to share how my weight right now is an issue. Hopefully me and everyone of you can get to our desired weights soon.(:

Ht. 5'5", Today: 186 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hey! I am a 14 year old freshman girl and weight about 185-187lbs. Yeah I am a big girl. My bmi is 31.0 and I am considered obese. Thank god nobody makes fun of me and that I have alot of nice and helpful friends to tell me to be proud of my body. As a child I was very slim until I hit the age of 11. I began to eat like crazy and I stopped playing outside. I remember going from 110 to 116 in about a month! Thats alittle to much. Im also a size 14 in jeans and I usually where a large for shirts. Luckily even mediums if they fit. I am a size 9 in shoes because I have very chubby feet. I hate my weight and want to be a good 130 by june of 2013. i know I can do it! Just keep my head up and have a good motavation ;)
