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 ;)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 162 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 150 lb - Well this sucks. I've been struggling for the last 5 months (since my boyfriend and I moved into our own apartment). I was 153 when we moved in, and ive gained about 9lbs since. BOGUS! I think it's because we hardly ate when we were at his moms, because she never did groceries and we'd eat out 1 meal a day and not really eat anything else. so for the 2nd time in my life I lost and re-gained the same 10lbs because I went about losing it the WRONG WAY. I'm determined to get back down to 153, and even lower to 150 so I can be comfortable in my clothes again!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 165 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI: 31), Goal: 120 lb - Hi I have been struggling with my weight since I was 10. Since that age I have always been considered obese. For a while I succeed in eating healthy with the correct portions and exercised daily but saw almost no results. The 10 lbs I lost were gained back along with 10 more pounds. Im going through this cycle where I work so hard loose a few pounds get dissapointed and then gain back the little i lost plus more. I just need any advise i can get other than dont give up. Im sick of looking in the mirror and seeing my stomach hanging over my jeans and huge thighs. Im disgusted by my image. I need to find motivation somewhere. Help :(

Ht. 5'3", Start: 180 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hello, my name Taylor but everyone calls me "Tay". I'm actually not new to this site because I found it a couple of months ago but
I was too embarrassed to tell people my story. I know what you're thinking, how stupid, right? Well I have a really low self-esteem, and i constantly avoid the subject of my weight. I've been dieting and struggling with my weight for years. I finally want to put an end to the vicious cycle. I'm going to be a Junior this year and I really want to reach my goal by the beginning of Senior year. High school hasn't been that enjoyable for me because of my weight and I really want enjoy my last year. Give me some tips that help during this daunting journey to a healthier me :).
