Ht. 5'2", Start: 203 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Okay, I've always been overweight. I was always the bigger girl in my group of friends. It's always bothered me, but I was never motivated to make a change because I had always accepted myself for how I was. I am happy with what I look like, but I do want to be healthier. I just lack motivation. Maybe someone could give me tips or become a workout buddy! I need someone to keep me motivated,or help with it. I have asked my friends to, but it's harder for them because they're a lot tinier than me and they don't want to watch what the eat or work out. Lazy bums. Lol. I thought it might be easier if I had a friend who was in the same boat as me. Well anyway, any and all tips appreciated!

I have always been fat but since last summer I have been trying to lose weight but i have gained instead. My stomach is my biggest problem it has fat rolls. I would like the summer if I could be skinny or just normal but now I hate summer because I look so fat and disgusting in bathing suits or. Shorts and summer tops. I like to swim but I cant swim this summer because of my fat body and disgusting fat stomach that buldges out and I can't hide it. At school they call me fatty and My frinds tease me about my wieght and one girl said an elephant would look like an ant compared to me!!!!! The last time I went swimming my friend said my swimsuit was too tight and I need to get a loosser swimsuit and wear a shirt over the top because my body make her want to throw up. My parents do not help and my clothes always feel tight ... (view more)

It's really hard to stick with them. I finally decided a month ago to go back on a diet. I have lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks. I really want to stick with this diet this time and I have.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 148.5 lb, Today: 145.5 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 120 lb - SO I haven't gained any weight. But I haven't lost any either. I've just been so so so busy with school and AP exams and testing that I haven't made any time for excersize. I also got a job- which I love!- so that's contributed to it to. However, school ends Friday, and I know I was suppoed to lose weight in time for summer, but that didn't happen and I can't dwell in the past, only look to the future, so i've decided to lose the weight this summer in time for school. I've already made my goals and I'm going to take my mesurements tomorrow. I'm going to DO this. I want to look good. I hat the way I look, and I hate that feeling of not being able to be happy with my body. Today, this guy pretty much called me fat. He was talking about how he was going to throw people in the pool if they didn't get in, but then he looked at me and was like, "I'm sure Lucy could ... (view more)

Ht. 5'9", Start: 200 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 140 lb - Ok so I have never been thin just average. But then I stopped sport and I knew I had gained some weight. When I went to the docs yesterday I was weighed and shocked to find that I am officially obese, and I feel so down. This new fat world I've entered is weird to me, please help anyone who has had a similar experience.

Ht. 6'0", Start: 320 lb, Today: 312 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 190 lb - I was first introduced to this web site in high school, but now I am serious about losing the weight. I have lost 8 pounds so far but I have a long way to go... But I have a major sweet tooth so its hard to fight that but I am trying to find substitutes for that. Wish me luck!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 195 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 140 lb - I've been overweight all my life. I'm reaching 200lbs and it's driving me crazy! I feel ugly, fat and round. I have such low self-esteem that I haven't gone out with friends in months; I'm embarassed. My goal is to reach 140lbs by December. I want to show people that I am beautiful and beyond my looks, there's so much more to me. I'm slowly working up a diet and an exercise plan.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 170 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 140 lb - Hey I weight 170 pounds. It stinks, I hate it and I really want to lose 30 pounds I just don't know how. My weight has always been up and down my whole life. 3 months ago I weighed 172 lbs and it scared me because that was the highest I had ever been. So I started eating healthy and excersising and i actually lost 20 pounds then I got sick for a week and I slacked off and after that it was eat everything. Now I am back to where I was before I don't know how to stop.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 163 lb, Today: 158 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 135 lb - I hate being overweight. I hate not being able to wear anything I want because I feel bad about my exterior. I hate how all my closest friends say they need to lose weight even though there the size of a twig. I hate being I'm the biggest one in my family and they don't bother about nutrition. I just joined, and this is such an amazing an inspirational website. Reading everyone's weight loss stories gets me motivated to jog on my treadmill more..k bye.gotta go run;P

Ht. 5'5", Start: 112 lb, Today: 168 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 125 lb - Hey i'm Linsey and i have a problem. I've gained a ton of weight the past months due to quiting volleyball and snacking alot. I really want to lose weight because i get exhausted much faster now and all my clothes are too tight. But there is one thing that bothers me: Before i gained this weight I was a cup A, and now i'm a full cup C, and i like it :P
Is there anyway i can lose the weight but keep my boobs?
