Ht. 5'0" - hey guys.. i think that i weigh too much and i want to get rid of the chub on my tummy. the rest of me is ok, i guess because i used to be a cheerleader and because i am 5'0". i am looking for a solution, not an excuse, to help me lose that chub (preferably ASAP). i am getting pretty depressed about it. not too long ago i didn't look bad in a bathingsuit, and about a year ago my mom even thought i was a little too thin. now i don't know what has happened but i am very sad. if you have any advice for me, please reply here or e-mail me at AmandaB587@aol.com (please put Blubberbusters in the subject so that i don't accidentally delete your email). Thanks!

Hello everyone. I hate myself now... i was on spring break with my family and we ate out for every meal. I tried to watch what I ate, but obviously didnt do a good job! -I gained 4 pounds! I knew it would come, but now I am so so so sad and mad at myself. I hola-hooped for 15 min today though. I hope I can lose this weight. I had enough to begin with. I dont need another 4. but its here! Any workouts that you know of that dont need any props? I dont have a tv anymore either. I had to sell it for money. Help Me!

I have a problem. I can't seem to stay motivated to eat healthy for more than one day. I do so well one day, but then the next day my cravings overtake me! What can I do to stay motivated for a longer time???

Ht. 5'5", Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 95) - Hello. I just...joined this thing...so I'm quite lost. But, just because I am bored I shall write here. I am 14, as it says...5'5'' and abour 165 lbs. I've known for a while that I was fat...but I could never really do anything about it. Noone in my family is skinny or thin, but my sister's been loosing weight lately. So, being a true little sister, I am jelous. And I can't spell. So, I really don't want to be the fat one, though I already am. So, if anyone can help me in any way, I'll be very happy. :)

Oh my god resturant food has so many calories!!!! Last night all I had was some pita chips and dip for starters then 2 small pieces of seafood pizza. Then I had 1 scoop of baskin robins icecream (285 cals!) with a cone (140 cals alone!) and it came to 1200 calories! holy moly thats basically what i eat in a whole day! and it wasnt even filling!!!! This is wrong. It should be illegal to sell food like that! Lucky I hadnt eaten much that day! Im going to have to be really careful next time...

today in class we switched seats. I was close to my friends, so we started throwing notes. Jamie was saying somethin and mouthed my name. i though they were gonna just try to embarass me (we do that to eachother.) Lyuba (it's a russian name) wrote something and let Reyna and Jamie read it, I knew they were gonna do somethin, so i wanted to know, I had to (yes, kinda nosy.) Anywayz, Lyuba rushed out of class to catch up with her boyfriend, so i asked jamie and reyna what she said. "Do you really want to know?" asked reyna."yes i do." i said."It might hurt your fellings, what lyuba wrote." jamie said."I don't care. Lemme see." i said.Ok, it said:Jamie: Have you noticed where taylor sits?? She got stuck with all the fat people!!Reyna: I know!!!
