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?

Ht. 5'5", Start: 155 lb, Today: 135 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 120 lb - I hate being overweight! All of the kids at my school are so skinny, and I feel left out. Whenever anyone plays something that requires running or whatever, they don't let me play because they say it is "To hard for you (me)". UGH!
