Ht. 5'11", Start: 275 lb, Today: 275 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hi my names kookz and I'm a 16 year old girl. I'm going in my senior year of high school and I really wanted to start off my new year with a new me. I want to get healthy. I want to start working out but I have no motivation and no time. During the school year I wake up at 5 take a shower, get ready and leave by 630 for school. I get home around three. Change. Go straight to work by 3:30 -4:00 work till 10:00 come home, do homework till midnight and then go to bed. I have no time. I work 6 days a week normally and if its not a school day then I'm working 10 hour shifts and am exhausted by the time I get home. Also, where I work I get free burger king and free pizza hut when I go on break. That doesn't help the "healthy eating" goal. Let me know what ya'll think.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 148 lb, Today: 138 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 120 lb - I have always a trouble with my weight and always wanted to be slimmer. I looooooooove shopping and buying all the newest trends but they dont look good on me and dont suit my figure. I lost weight before and down to 130 but that was short lived, to a adult losing 18 pounds might not be that big of a deal but when your just a kid it can be very challegening. I'm trying and destined not to be overweught when im an adult.

I was never really fat as a kid it wasn't until last year after summer. I had lost a lot of weight over the summer and once it ended I started eating and eating and EATING. Now I keep binge eating and overeating. I am overweight. And I just found out about this website. I would really like to start and stuff but I'm not sure if I can do it at least not alone. So I was wondering if anyone wanted to start this journey with me? Please? I'm really desperate and all my friends are out if town. Have a lovely day!!:)

Ht. 6'3", Start: 280 lb, Today: 280 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - Hello everyone, so I always knew that I was overweight but never really knew how muched I weighed. I found out that I weighed 280lbs last month and I was shocked. I thought that I weighed less them that but I guess I was wrong. I always wanted to lose weight but every time I have tried a diet I can never get through the second day. Every time that I eat junk food I feel really guilty and pathetic because I dont have the will power to stop myself from eating it. I have decided that this time I WANT to stick with a diet but Im scared that I wont have enough will power or strength for me to stick with it. I really want to lose the weight but I just dont think that I can do it. Someone help me!!!

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.
