Ht. 5'4", Start: 175 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI: 30), Goal: 130 lb - Hey guys! My name is Emily, I'm 20 years old, and I've just begun my journey to lose weight. I've been coming to this site since I was maybe 14, and until now it's always been a 'lets feel sorry for myself and not do anything to better myself' attitude. I've recently become fed-up with everything though, and joined weight watchers! I'm really excited to see if it will really work. I'm on my third day, and I'll be honest, it's not so bad. The hardest part is making better food choices, but in all actuality, I'm not starving and I'm still eating some things that I used to! My first goal is to drop 5% of my weight, which would be 166. I'll try to keep up with my journey, and if anyone has any questions or comments, I'd love to talk!
Good luck to everyone!

Ht. 5'1", Start: 133.4 lb, Today: 133 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 120 lb - I have been having some problems with my wieght. Like towards the begging of spring and throughout summer i lose the weight and end up at my goal but I am always out working with my horses and doing stuff for 4h but when that ends i am at home and sometimes i exercise like 20 or 30 minutes a day but i dont lose the weight. I know i have to start excersing and watch what i eat more. I just need more motivation as it becomes fall and winter im inside more. I know i need to be using my excersie equipment that i have inside until its spring again but i always dont feel like i want to go do that. Any way to keep the motivation? or for other helpful webcites? please comment thanks a bunch.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 130 lb, Today: 128.8 lb (BMI %tile: 85), Goal: 95.5 lb - Well my story starts off when I moved from home to grandma and when I left I weighed 90 pounds!! But you know how it is when you go to grandmas ! she cooked 3 large meals and about 5 snacks a day (candy,popcorn,etc)!! Well when got to our new house and I got started back in school (we went to grandmas in the summer) my dad bought a scale I weighed myself and I weighed 130 pounds ! I could not believe and when I tried on my clothes and found out the couldn't fit , that was the last straw. Ive been determined to lose weight and so far I lost 2 pounds in 2 weeks!! I plan to reachy goal of 95 by January first and I know I can do it

I only took the healthy stuff, I had the hambuger plain, with lectuce tomote, and onions,, !! I looked at the sodas this is very tempting for me,, I was very scared..

Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 166 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 145 lb - Well I haven't been on here in way too long. Managed to somewhat maintain.Gained about a pound but I'll lose it. Anyways, the reason for my coming back is because I really need motivation. My best friend is getting married next August and I will be a bridesmaid. The wedding isn't for a whole year BUT we are doing a dress fitting in March. So... that's about 6 and a half months. I need to crack down!! It's not only about losing weight I need to tone up as well. strapless dresses don't look too pretty when you've got grandma Bingo arms lol Here's to hoping I can lose at least 10 pounds in the next few months. Good luck to you all!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 282 lb, Today: 285 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hey guys. So, once again, it's been months since I've posted and I haven't lost anything. I've probably gained since the last time I posted, in fact. But I've finally decided... I am done being overweight. I am going to do WHATEVER it takes to lose weight. I've wasted too many years looking like this and I'm done. So wish me luck, guys! I'll try to post back soon to tell everyone how it's going. And I wish you all the best!

Ht. 5'2", Start: 178 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 111 lb - heeyy theree :-) lol So today I had a physical so I could try out for volleyball and I was really excited because I could get see how much I weigh ( my scale in my bathroom is broken )and how much taller I've grown (I found i 'm actually a inch shorter than I thought I was I went from 5'3 to 5'2 :( ). My doctor told me because of my weight I'm at risk of high cholestoral, high blood pressure, and being diagnosed with prediabetes so they drew my blood to find out whether or not I have one of those. I mean I was already fully aware of that because of this website but tt really put things in perspective when you're being told this to your face. I gained some new found motivation and I really want to change my life for the better. I'm tired of saying I'm going to become healthy and not committing. I don't want to be another statistic, another overweight teenager. I truly want to make a change.Wish me luck the results of my bloodwork are coming at the end of the week!
