Ht. 5'6", Today: 220 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - Well, here I am. I'm 14, I'm a guy, and I'm 220 pounds. Your "weight calculator" says that I'm not Overweight, but I don't think i'm at a very healthy weight. I have plenty of friends and I'm not excluded from many things, but still the "fat jokes" and everything can get really annoying. I'm into weight lifting and martial arts, but that doesn't seem to do the trick. My mom is overweight, so it obvious that I picked up my bad eating habits from her. I'm not terribly active, but I'm becoming more. I'm certainly not eating right, so if anyone has a diet that is effective with excersize, but does not require a great amount of will power, than please post it. P.S. I'm new to the site.P.P.S I'm 5'6"

Hey all. it's spring now...i hate spring. i mean, i love the fact that all the flowers are blooming and baby animals are born...etc...but what i hate is how its getting hotter! normally i wear pants, a shirt, and a jacket & can make myself look pretty good. but now its getting too warm for all of that! i hate how im going to either be sweating away in layers of clothing or trying to hide everything in shorts and a t-shirt, when all of my friends can wear whatever. ahh! now this is really inspiring me to lose weight. i dont want to be worried about what im wearing, i just want to be able to put on some clothes and not worry about how i look. now that theres a guy in my life im more determined then ever. please keep posting your ideas and suggestions...that will make it easier for everyone!

Ht. 5'8", Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 92) - Hi everyoneI'm Sarah I live in Holland I'm 5'8 1/2 and I weigh 176 pounds, for months I didn't want to buy clothes because I'm a size 12 so now I accepted the fact that I'm a bit overweight and I bought really nice clothes.I go to the gym 4 times a week and I eat healthy, so I know I will lose weight, how long it will take I don't know and at this moment I don't care because I feel good. And to everybody who wants to lose weight don't try to lose like 50 pounds in one month because it will probably not happen, not to bring you down or anything because in the past I also wanted to lose 60 pounds in two months and in the back of my head I knew that would not happen and it turned out that it didn't and the only thing that did happen is that I got depressed. So when you are ready to lose weight make it fun like exercise with friends. It really helped me.hugs and kissesSarah

Hi everyone. I really need support! My friends all say im skinny to make me feel better, so none of my friends want to support me with loosing weight. My mother just told me I am fat and its hard to believe that shes "supporting" me. Its really hard to stay motivated when there is no one to help you.
