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

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!

I am be coming painfully shy because of my weight. I am homeschooled and lazy :P. I have a boyfriend and a girlfriend. My GF lives 4 hours from me and is the sweetest girl ever. She is also skinny and I feel slightly awkward around her. My BF is a few states away so we don't see each other much. He is also skinny, however he is TO skinny and won't listen to me about it so :P on him. Sooo....um yeah...I am starting up my weight loss stuff again in hopes of it working this time.I might even walk the 1/8 of a mile to my apmrt's little fittness room and use the treadmill while blasting A7X in my head phones. byes for now!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 130 lb - I went school shopping yesterday. I was happy because I found 2 pairs of cute jeans, 2 adorable shirts, and a gorgeous leather jacket. I had a rough time finding jeans because every store I went into didn't have my size. I always feel like I'm doing really good but then I try on clothes or see pictures of myself and I always feel like I've got such a long way to go...one day at a time!

Ht. 177 cm, Start: 128 kg, Today: 102 kg (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 68 kg - Today is a horrible day.This week was going so well. I had barely eaten anything all week and things were great. But this morning my boyfriend surprised me with breakfast in bed which consisted basically completely of fatty foods. With cheesecake for dessert. I devoured everything, and I HATE myself for it. Of course I tried to burn it all and go for jog but now that i've eaten so much again I am hungry constantly and eating. I almost feel like my boyfriend wanted me to eat that much again. I love him, but I don;t want to be fat anymore.
What do I do?  (Note: 177 cm, 102 kg is 5'9.7", 224.872 lb.)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 170 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 130 lb - Hi I'm stephanie, I'm 18 years old and i can honestly say that I've had weight issues from a very early age. first off I've had a rough childhood; i was sexually abused when i was about 4 by my babysitters son and i had no idea what was happening to me at the time. i remember i would feel uncomfortable and even hide when i was left alone with the person. then one day i remember him pointing out an obese lady on tv and saying that she was really fat and ugly, so i guess i gained weight to protect myself and well the abuse stopped. when i was in 3rd grade i subconsciously knew what he had done to me but i never came forth with it. it wasn't until 5th grade that i started actually struggling with body issues and weight and i became less confident.. and well i became very depressed by high school over my weight. i was on a fast track freshman year to lose...

Ht. 5'6", Start: 170 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 120 lb - Hi! I'm having a little trouble with weight loss and I saw this site. I'm an athlete- a swimmer and also a dancer. I swim vigorously for 5 hours a day 6 days a week,I take irish dance lessons 2 days a week and ballet 2 days a week. I ride my bike for about 20-25 miles almost everyday. I walk or ride my bike to school and its like 5 miles away. But i still can't lose enough weight to be healthy and it always comes back. I eat healthy and never too much. Some help? Also when people say im 'fat' they don't understand that i have a large frame due to swimming- broad shoulders etc. and that a lot of my body mass is muscle. My doctor told me all this. But he always says I need to lose weight. I know this, I've know it for the past 5 years! People always tell me I'm beautiful and I think so too, but then there are some other things I wish were different- clothes never... (view more)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - Hey everyone! My name is Gabby and long story short, I have tried to lose weight ever since I was 14, but I have always failed. This site has helped me be motivated but I always seem to fail over and over again. I am leaving the past behind and I want to start again, and see where my future leads to. It would be great to have buddies during my journey, we could motivate each other!
