Ht. 5'6", Today: 147 lb (BMI %tile: 85), Goal: 130 lb - Hi everyone. I'm about 5'6 maybe a lil taller cause I think I just had a growth spurt. Anyway, I weigh about 147 lbs. I want to loose about 17 lbs so I can weigh 130. That's what I put on my permit when I got it cause I didn't want peeps knowing how much I really weigh. But I really do want to weigh that! Someone please help me! I have a really busy life and it's hard to find time for excercise; I do it when I can. I'm also planning on going out for track soon. I bought a bikini/tankini thing, and I want to feel comfortable with people seeing me in it. I have a big belly. Everyone tells me I'm not fat, but I know I am. All my friends are really skinny and they eat all the time and never excercise. I excercise whenever possible and I don't eat much, but I'm still fat. Anyone who could help me, it would be greatly appriciated! My b/f just moved and since he won't be seeing me much, I want to look good for when he sees me. He tells me that I'm perfect, but I don't think I am. Please help! Thanks!

you know what? they should make all skinny people wear a fat suit for a day so they can see what its like to be treated by everyone else as a bigger person. It really annoys me that people treat you differently when you are fat. Anyone else agree?

Today: 125 lb - well, today is my birthday! and with eating cake, pizza, ice cream, and a lot of junk - I gained two pounds! YUCK! I know I should be allowed to go off my diet for atleast one day a year, but I just feel awful after I lost over 50 pounds and now gained two. but, hey, atleast I didnt gain it all back! Im 125 right now. Wish me luck. I am going to do Pilates workouts tonight in my bed. I hope that burns enough calories. Tomorrow, I have decided to not eat. after binging today, I feel so bad! Not eating makes me feel better. Before I blew out my candles, I wished that I was skinny by the time I graduate! God, I hope so! :) :(

Hey! I'm really overweight and whenever I try to go on a diet, I get cravings for junk food and end up eating more chocolate than I would normally eat. I could handle the exercise but the food is the problem. If you have any tips for me or wanna be my diet buddy(girl 13-18)( we could help each other lose weight) email me at Rdazzyj@aol.com or post it on here.

Ht. 5'9", Today: 269 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - Hey all-I have been to this site many many times before. I always tell myself that I am gonna stick to my diet but somehow it never works out. In english we did a skit and our teacher filmed it and showed up the tape. I know people say the camera adds 10 pounds but geez, it looked like it added a couple 100 pounds. I knew and know that i am fat, but seeing myself on there really broke me down. I weigh a whopping 269 lbs. I am pretty tall for my age (5ft 9)and I have alot of muscles- especially in my legs so I don't look as big as my weight tells me I am. I love sports especially softball. So thats a good thing. I am really committed this time. I dug out my old weight watchers stuff. And I am trying to eat healthier at lunch- today I had a ham and cheese sub with fries(I know i know delicious but deadly) and a diet pepsi (real healthy i know)but it is better than a piece of pizza, fries, a regular pepsi and 2 cookies... well if ya'll have any tips just post at the bottom it will be really helpfull :) thanks
