Ht. 6'2", Start: 263 lb, Today: 262 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 185 lb - Starting this weight loss journey is scaring me so much. I have absolutely no idea how I am going to lose almost about 80 pounds. Today went fairly well. I tried to cut back on the soda (I usually drink about 6 a day, today I only had 3). I know I need to cut it out completely but there is no way I am going to be able to do it at first. I tried taking smaller portions and not snacking throughout the day (I can't imagine how I became this overweight ;-) I think my dad is going to end up being a very encouraging force. For some unknown reason, I think he thinks I can do this. I hope it works but I'm not terribly optimistic. Thankfully school starts again tomorrow and I won't be sitting around at home for most of the day. Thanks for everyones advice yesterday, I decided on 185 because it turns out 190 is the max for my height/age and I wouldn't mind being a little below the max. But that is a long tikme off.

Ht. 6'2", Start: 263 lb, Today: 263 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 220 lb - I am a senior in high school and the oldest of 5 brothers. I have always been overweight but only recently has it really began to bother me. I would definitely look to lose some weight before going off to college. I just do not know where to start. I know I am one of the few guys on here but I would appreciate it if you would help me. Is 220 a good goal weight? I am tall at 6 foot 2 so while it might seem heavy I think losing 40 pounds would help me. Or should I lose more? I carry a lot of the weight in my stomach and I have moobs. My waist is 40+ inches. I started to get worried because I found out I weigh more than my dad now who i always thought of as fat so to think i weigh more when we are the same height freaked me out. just help me any way you can. thank you.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 174.4 lb, Today: 174.4 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 124 lb - Hi, so I'm Sophia and I'm new to this site. I've tried dieting before but I've never been consistent. I kind of figured since it's a new year I might as well start fresh. I feel like this year is going to be big and I want to do my best to make sure it is. I would really appreciate it if you guys gave me some tips and advice on how I could reach my goal because I want to lose a whopping 50 lbs...I want to wish everyone a happy new year, because this is our year to make a change, I can just feel it! :)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 190 lb, Today: 184 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - Hey, I was happy to find a sight were other kids can understand were I'm coming from. All my friends are skinny, and anytime I wanna talk about it they roll their eyes and mutter "your not fat". It really hurts that I'm the biggest one in my family besides my father. People just don't understand. The biggest thing I want out of weightloss is wearing WHATEVER I WANT WHENEVER I WANT lol

Ht. 4'10", Start: 200 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 115 lb - I have been basically over weight my whole life and I'm tired of it! As a kid my parents would always smile and tell me I will grow out of my baby fat and I never did. I am ready to change that. I'm tired of trying to lose weight and then giving up. I'm not satisfied with that any more. I am a happy person but I'm not happy with myself when I look in a mirror. Don't get me wrong there are times when I look at myself and feel pretty for the day but I want the other 364 days to feel the same... So here is day one :) I plan to post once a week to let you guys see how far I have come from day 1. If there is any one who needs an online buddy, I am more than happy to oblige. :)

Ht. 5'7", Start: 154 lb, Today: 157 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 140 lb - I'm fed up. I'm fed up of dieting. I'm fed up of yoyoing. I'm fed up of not fitting into any clothes. I'm fed up of having friends who, although weigh the same as me, are still skinnier. I know alot of you might think that i'm not that heavy and that you have way more to lose. It makes no difference. Anyone have any tips 4 me? All i do is lose.... then gain.... then lose and then gain another 7 lbs back :( I have little motivation. And now,... its christmas :(. last year i put on 10 lbs. i do not want to be 167 by the end of this one. I just wanna be thin. Things is, I eat far too much. I know i do. But I cant stop, or i stop eating. Anyone have any tips?

Ht. 5'5", Start: 11 st 13, Today: 11 st 13 (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 10 st 7 - I've never been the slimmest of people, I won't deny it. But I used to be a normal looking person. Now I feel fatter - no, I AM fatter than all my friends.I feel horrible in my PE kit and looking at my best friends who are long legged, stunning and model-thin, its very degrading. I can't talk to my parents about it because they wouldn't understand. I'm pretty much desperate to make myself lose weight - I know its bad, but I've started skipping meals. I don't even feel hungry any more, I feel like I'm binge-eating all the time. Help! :(  (Note: 11 st 13 is 167 lb.)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 285 lb, Today: 284 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 170 lb - Hey everyone. I'm really really tired of being overweight, and I have the world's strongest DESIRE to lose the weight. But I lack the willpower. Unfortunately, my busy schedule prevents me from being online a lot. What I'm looking for, ideally, is 3-5 people I can grow close to and work with on this journey. I'm hoping to find some texting buddies, since texting is the best way to reach me most of the time. I'd like to be able to exchange milestone pictures and engage in friendly competitions such as "Who can lose 5lbs first?" If you're interested, send me an email at heyy_its_tori@hotmail.com and we'll get in touch about this. :)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 147 lb, Today: 146 lb (BMI %tile: 85), Goal: 125 lb - Any ideas on how to avoid sugary foods? I can't think of anything but resisting the temptation, which most of the time i can't do. I'm guessing all of you guys had the urge to eat candy and didn't stop to think about what it would do to you, right. Today at school I had a dollar extra for school and they were selling cookies and i bought two without even considering that I was on a diet, when I finally realized that I was on a diet, I'd already finished both, and then I cussed out loud and got a referral, sadly.
