Today: 180 lb, Goal: 120 lb - Guess what. i went totally in to shock just recently (hence the name) when i weighed myself. i promised myself that i would never weigh 180+ and the scale said i was 182.5!!! ahhhh no wounder i look so fat!!! i'm doing this for my health so at least i have the reason to, plus i want to be able to wear better clothing. if i could get down to a size 8 i would be so happy, and my goal weight will definantly be a smaller size than that. i ws 160 a year ago and a size 10,now i am a size 14 and bigger.and my legs look all lumpy. ewwwww.i want to lose 60lbs, but its kind of difficult when your dad cooks hot dogs twice a week!! that right there is my fault. what are healthy dinners that are easy to fix for a dad who doesn't cook???? i found some other things i can do for cravings. also, i need all the ideas for exercise i can get. i am a nice person and i deserve a nice package, right. thanks and good luck to all. p.s. i lost 2.5 lbs!

Hey my name is Carly, i'm 15 and im in the 9th grade. since the beginning of this school year, I've gained 15 pounds which is very unlike me. I have stopped watching what I eat and have tried to start eating healthy again, but i find that it is just too hard. I dont know what could be causing this weight gain b/c i am an active person. I am involved in field hockey, indoor and outdoor track. The weight that i have been gaining however I've noticed is in my theighs, hips, buttocks, and breast areas. Can anyone offer tips, help, advice, anything at all would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You so much!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 136 lb, Today: 178 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 136 lb - I feel so ashamed of myself! I've always been in pretty good health. 5 foot 5, around 130 or 140 pounds. Well at the beginning of the school year I was chosen to go live with a family in Germany. I was so happy! When I left I weighed 136 pounds, which is pretty much average. Well while I was there I figured I could let myself go a bit. Wow they have some great stuff there. Tons of chocolate, very good. I really didn't think I had changed much, having bought clothes there and stuff like that. Well when I got back (2 weeks ago) my friends were like, wow. And I really didn't get what was wrong and why people acted different. Then I decided to wear one of my old favorite outfits. These really cute jeans and a green T with glitter all over. Guess what.
