Ht. 5'3", Start: 675 lb, Today: 675 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 400 lb - I found out today that I need to lose weight, I tried to walk up the stares in the local mall today and a quarter way up needed to rest, I live in a trailer park so we don't have stares. I was so embarrassed sitting on the busy stares. So im going to start to try and lose all my flab and get a little smaller. I like being big but Im too big now and need to get smaller.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 170 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 145 lb - I have been overweight my entire life. I never used to care. Until I started getting bullied about it. You could never tell that I was over 140 pounds, or as I got older, over 150, 160 pounds. The thing that gave it away, was my stomach. There are times when I look like I'm pregnant, and trust me I'm not. It's impossible in my situation. I hated being bullied about it, but I couldnt do anything about it. My parents were always telling me to exercise so I could lose the weight, and they were always yelling at me when I would get upset because someone made a comment about it, but they were never willing to help. Even now, I try and I try, but exercising alone isnt doing it, and sometimes I dont have the time. I want to eat healthier, and I eat healthy because my mom makes my dinner, but the stuff that I want to get, we cant, because it is too expensive. For once, I... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 203 lb, Today: 165.7 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 130 lb - Hi everyone! So, I remember using this sight at the beginning of my weight loss and it really helped me to stay motivated; however, I guess I got too cocky and stopped using it, thinking I'd be just fine. After a couple months of struggling and plateau-ing plenty of times with my weight loss, I am certain and better prepared to lose the last 35 lbs. I'll be starting college as a freshman in August, so im hoping to reach my goal by then or at least by the September. My plan is to workout 3x a day, running in the morning, doing a workout video in the afternoon, and then doing some toning exercises at night. I've heard ppl say that keeping a food journal really helps, so I'm going to start that and see how it goes. As for eating...well i have MAJOR work to do on my diet. I'm going to try to incorporate lots of veggies and fruits, as well eliminating a lot of manufactured foods. It's gonna be It's hard, but I'm looking forward to it. :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 171 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 113 lb - Ha ha. Was a little bit too serious there, but ya know what? When you are missing things because your weight (Water parks, swim meets, chilling in the Arizona heat wearing a tanktop and jean shorts, or even WEARING short sleeves) it makes you really upset. I did this to myself, and for the first time in all my life, I'm finally owning up to it.
I've always excelled in everything I do. From doing double grades or making a lot of money from my own online business, but there is one thing I haven't mastered yet, and thats weightloss. It's really irritating and I'm sooo sick of it, so no matter how crappy I feel or how much I object, I'm going to get outta bed tomorrow morning, eat a healthy, portion correct meal, leash up my dog and go for a half hour jog. Then I'm also going to follow the rest of my plan too.
I've already lose 16 pounds and I know I can lose another 42, if I really try.
So, even though I've posted stuff like this a million times before, but this times I'm really confident I can do this.
Have faith - Maddie

Ht. 5'5", Start: 11 st 5, Today: 11 st 0 (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 10 st 0 - i hate my weight. i know i need to loose some, i have no confidence in myself. i find it very difficult. i binge eat on unneccesary food. i know i dont need it but im home alone each night for atleast half an hour after school. enough time to binge eat. i say to myself im going to stop it but i cant. then i just regret it and try to throw it up. which never works. im going on holiday in a few months and i really want to feel confident in how i look. any advice on how to stop the binge eating? its not as simple as just not buying it because ive asked my mum not to and her answer is no, because she says its not fair on my younger brother.  (Note: 11 st 0 is 154 lb.)
