Ht. 5'0", Start: 9 st 6, Today: 9 st 6 (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 8 st 5 - I've been overweight/obese all my life really. Like when I was 4 I was 98th percentile!! Which I know is obese. But it all started happening so quickly.
When I look back at pictures of me as a small child I can start to find out when it all started to go wrong. I was always quite chubby but I asumed it was just baby fat. But as I got to the age of ten I weighed 7 stone 7, I started to realise that it wasn't baby fat but it was real fat! I was obese then but now is when it was a blur.
At age 11 I still weighed 7 stone 7. That was still an overweight weight. But I didn't think anything of it and carried on at a normal pace.
I am 12 now and it is august. In march I weighed 8stone 9 which is the normal weight for a 12 year old girl. But it didn't last long... As I weigh my self now the scales say 10 stone 6! I have put on 2 stone in the past 4 months!! I am at the top of the... (view more)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 155 lb, Today: 155 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 100 lb - I need help! I try to lose weight but I keep gaining it back. I eat exactly 1200 calories a day and exercise 2 hours a day, but it won't come off! I want cool clothes like my SKINNY friends. When I go in the store I see really cute clothes and try them on and there are too small! I'm size 10! One it was really cold outside and we had to go out for PE but I forgot my long pants and only had shorts my BFF offered to lend my hers but she is a size 0. I'm one of the fatest kids in my school and it is intimidating. All this weight is keeping my from being popular and it is ruining my life. I need help!!!!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 163 lb, Today: 157 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 114 lb - I just went to the doctor's office for my physicals and found out I lost 7 pounds in a few weeks. The only problem is that we don't have a scale at home and my parents don't want to get one. I swim laps everyday and I have vigorous life guard training 3 days a week. I really want to lose weight cause I'm tired of people's attitude towards my weight and I want to be able to find clothes that I like. I want to look good in a swimsuit and be healthier for sports. I'm going to be a freshman this year and I got braces a few months ago. I have to wear them 2 more years and my goal is to be my goal weight by the time I get them off. I want straight teeth AND healthy WEIGHT by my sweet 16 birthday,prom,wedding and LIFE. I eat healthy, control my portions, but still allow myself a little something sweet once a day. Now I am having a small cup of ice cream and I am... (view more)

Ht. 5'7", Start: 215 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hi everyone. I have finally decided to loose some weight. I am obese. It feels so weird to type that. I am fat. I feel like we need to be able to accept that fact before we can work on actually loosing weight. I used to be so concerned if people could see how big I was. Who was I kidding? I am over 200 lbs. Obviously everyone can tell that I am fat. Who cares if you can tell I have a big belly. I am becoming more comfortable with my weight by admitting that I am obese and I need to do something about it. I need to stop eating so much and I need to stop sucking my stomach in all the time. I need to accept the body that I have and if I can't I should loose weight and not try to hide that with my clothes and my sucking my stomach in. I need to stop eating so much and snacking all the time and I really need to start exercising. I can bearly run because I am so big! I have already lost 5 pounds! If you have any suggestions for me let me know!
