Ht. 5'0", Start: 9 st 5, Today: 8 st 10 (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 6 st 10 - Hi, when I was in 9, I weighed 9 stone 5, I was extremely overweight. I was also only 145cm. Since then, I've lost a bit of weight but I'm still very fat. I'm 6th fattest person in my whole year at school. I'm 5 foot, so still short and I've started doing 1500m running but I almost faint and I eat really unhealthily, I haven't gone 1 day without eating, pizza, chocolate or ice cream, often all of those things. I'm the slowest runner, always have been, and my PE teacher says I'm extremely unfit but she has encouraged me a lot recently since I started running. I have a really slow time, most people on their first time did it in 7 minutes and it took me almost 10. I now can run it in 8 minutes 32, which is still bad but better. I have anxiety and I'm very self conscious. I have quite big thighs and a huge stomach and back, with 2 or 3 rolls when I sit down. I just really want to loose weight but I can't do it because of my eating habits.  (Note: 8 st 10 is 122 lb.)

Ht. 6'0", Start: 208 lb, Today: 207 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 160 lb - Hi, thanks for helping, I'm Luke. I was quite a fit kid, I weighed about 135lbs at 5 foot 6 going into high school - I played water polo for my school and district, and went to the gym a couple of times a month. But in high school exams and stuff have come along - I quit water polo, stopped going to the gym and have started to eat more at Mcdonalds KFC with my mates etc. As a result I've put on around 50 lbs in the last 2-3 years. I'm now 16, 6 foot but weigh 207 lbs, and have a size 36/38 waist. My doctor says I'm 'obese'. All the weight, as you can tell, went to to my gut. As a result, I no longer swim/ go to gym any longer as everyone can now see my belly. To be fair, I also don't play because I find myself short of breath a lot, I even sometimes have to stop at the top of stairs, wheezing. All my mates, a lot of them now overweight themselves, make fun of... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 232 lb, Today: 211 lb (BMI: 36), Goal: 140 lb - I feel like I should post in here cause more people come in here haha but anyways I'm not to happy I gained a couple pounds ugh! Always tomorrow to start over I guess. I am nervous because my crush and I are going out with a group in a couple weeks and I get embarrassed really easily and I'm uptight mainly because of my weight and I think people are looking/judging me when I know they aren't it's just a really hard thing for me.In school I was bullied and I felt like you had to be skinny to be pretty and no one would ever like me because of my weight and now I see it's not like that but I can't help having those thoughts.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 156.5 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - Okay. So, I'm Trystan... I've been overweight for a REALLY long time, and its gotten to the point where i don't really like being around my friends, because they're all really skinny, and it makes me feel ashamed of myself.. I've attempted to lose weight, but every time I try to do so, either my dad or grandpa brings home some junk food, and it's hard to stay away.. I'm honestly not happy with myself :( , and would love a buddy to talk to and keep each other motivated... That may sound cheesy and all, but i'd love to be about 120lbs by next summer, if thats even possible, but i think it is... My kik is @trystan.m_ I hope to talk to someone soon.. :)

Ht. 145 cm, Start: 78 kg, Today: 72 kg (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 45 kg - Hi my name is Emily Citrus I am 12 years and sadly to say I am ridiculously over weight. I discovered this site a couple of weeks ago it has really helped me knowing that other people are in the same situation as me and to hear other people's stories. My father left me because my mother and I were too over weight so it is just me and my mum at home. I don't have any brothers or sisters but I did once gave a brother he would be 14 now but he died at birth because my mum, sorry this is really emotional for me to be talking about this, my brother died from my mum being overweight. Every night we have fast food except once a month. My mum was beautiful and thin when my dad met her and they decided they wanted to have a baby and that's when my mum started to become overweight.
