Ht. 5'6", Start: 285 lb, Today: 293 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 170 lb - *shyly and from behind my hair* Hi...I'm Katie. I won't post much but when I do I will have things to say. 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!

Ht. 5'8", Start: 215 lb, Today: 215 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 160 lb - Hey guys. I have been having a rough time in the weight loss department. I lost a lot of weight a few years ago, but I have gained most of it back in the last couple of months. I have started riding my bike nearly 20 miles a day, but I am still gaining weight. I'm really starting to lose hope. I need a buddy, or multiple buddies, that I can talk to for support. Does anybody have any ideas?

Ht. 5'2", Start: 132 lb, Today: 129 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 110 lb - Hi. So I use to weigh 138 pounds (63kg) and now I weigh 129(59). I've being yo-yoing for roughly the past year and I'm sick of it. I HAVE lost weight but not much and I'm still really unhappy, really unfit and in the 'at risk of being overweight' section for my BMI. My goal weight is 110(50) and I plan to lose 19 pounds(9kg) by November 1st. I've just bought a wii fit, treadmill and am totally cutting out all my junk food beginning tomorrow. It's possible everyone who reckons it isn't. My Aunty did it, she lost 30 pounds in 2 months! :) I just wish my family was more supportive. My Dad deliberately says I'm fat, my brother shoves the food in my face and my Mum just keeps buying more and more junk to store in the cupboards. I don't expect them to cut out all junk for me, but some support would be nicer. Anyway, back to my point, my... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 170.4 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 135 lb - I had a really crappy day today...I went to the Olive Garden with my sister. I brought home half of my dinner because I had already eaten 4 breadsticks, salad, and stuffed mushrooms. Then on the way home we got ice cream cones! I refer to my sister as a "diet sabotager" because all she wants to do is eat when we hang out. She tells me almost every time we go out to forget about my diet and live just that one night....I love my sister but there's a reason she's overweight. I don't wanna look like her. We look alot alike in appearance. Same hair, eyes, facial features. You can tell we are related. She had a daughter 2 years ago and people in my neighborhood always mix us up...I don't want people to think I'm her, or that I look like that. It's sad, but it is kind of what motivates me. She doesn't like that I always turn her down when ... (view more)
