Start: 150 lb, Today: 170 lb, Goal: 130 lb - Ok, now i really need help losing height, last year i was 150lbs, now this year i am 170. I really want to lose up to at least 40lbs for my cousins wedding. I have tried to diet but i just cant stick to it.i don't know what to do. I tried to eat fruits and veggies more often but something is pulling me back. I end up starting to diet for like 2 or 3 days, then it ends up going back to normal. My relatives also even make me feel bad. When i went to visit them, they always say "you are beautiful but you really need to lose weight" i just feel really bad about myself and it puts pressure on me. Please help, i really want to change my life, it would be so much better if i was more confident.

Today: 300 lb - Please someone help me! I am 300 pounds and I'm only twelve. I can't fit in anything. I hate it! My mom is so ashamed of me she just avoids me because I am SO fat. My dad makes remarks under his breath like "i can't believe she's MY daughter." I can't stop eating, I've had 4 pieces of pizza and two cupcakes already. I can't stop . I've tried dieting but it always turns out the same I diet then see somthing tasty and I get to the eating. I've tried swimming but I can't do one measly lap running is like the worst. You have to help me I have no friends at school, even the teachers are kind of mean. I dread gym I get teased until my head spins. Nobody else in my WHOLE family is fat except for me.

Hey everyone, I'm new here. Anyway. Like mostly everyone here, I'm hoping to shead a few pounds come this summer. Anyway. I'm just a little out of shape from what I used to be and am hoping to lose around 5 lbs or so in the next two weeks. Could anyone give me any quick suggestions on calorie intake and how much I should have each day to meet my goal? Also-at school, I have no problem binging because I'm in my classes and such but during the weekend I feel terrible when I can't grab a hold of myself from eating more than I wish to inbetween meals. Anyway. Thanks for anyone who bother's replying, ^_^.

Start: 203 lb, Today: 177 lb - Hey you guys. I haven't posted in months, but now I have some news. Good news and bad news. Less than one month ago, I had totaled up to 203 lbs and I wasn't on any kind of diet. Until I found out I have type 2 diabetes. I never even knew you could get it from being overweight until I was diagnosed. But since then, I've lost 26 lbs because my sugar intake has to be very low. I'm not exactly proud of my weight loss. This is a life-long disease. It will never go away and I hope you guys don't fall into the same hole that I fell into. I'm not trying to scare anyone, but this is a good reason to start losing weight now before you end up where I am.

I'm not overweight but I'm worried about becoming overweight. My family always goes out to eat fast food about THREE times a week. When we go to lets say McDonalds I'll tell my parents I don't want anything to eat because I already ate a sandwich at home. (I don't lie) But then my parents make me eat and I hate it. I don't want to be fat. Fast food is so bad for you. Do you guys have any tips to eat healthier? Also does anyone know of an exercise video that works?
