Today: 220 lb - Ok guys no offense but you think you have a problem, I have a problem. I weight 220 pounds. I am fairly tall, but that is still really overweight. Sometimes I get so depressed I cry and think about dying. Sometimes I'm happy though. As soon as I remember about my weight I get sad again. I don't know what to do. Do you have any good ideas?

First off, if you are overweight, and want to lose weight with some quick diet or something like that (Atkin's diet, that counts, stuff like that), you need to EXERCISE. No "quick fix" diets will work.
Now that I have that out of the way, I am 13 (as above shows) and I am overweight, obviosuly. However, I am pretty active (Playing hockey every other day now, and wiffleball (The version where you actually run bases and stuff) and random sports), but I don't seem to lose any weight. I eat right usually, having something, like some cookies, or cake, or whatnot, and it's really frustrating. Anyone out there have these same experiances?

Hi, people. I'm not overweight but I sure look like I am. My friends don't say that I'm fat or anything but some people call me fatass or fatty or something like that. And I am annoyed by all that. I can't stand it anymore. I want to lose at least 10 pounds. Can somebody help me?

I exersize alot. Since I play soccer I have practice every day and every other day I have to run at least 2 miles. The only thing is that I watch what I eat at scholl but when I get home since I'm alone all i do is eat. It not really unhealthy stuff but still I eat alot. But do you think because i exersize so much that it doesn't matter?? And if it does can somebody give me some tips on how to control my hunger!!????!!!! THANKS!!
