Ht. 6'0", Start: 225 lb, Today: 220 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 170 lb - YOU GUYS. I used to come on this website ALL THE TIME when I was in middle school. Seriously, if you go back in the Pre-Teen boards and search my name, tons of posts from me will come up. I just spent the past 20 minutes reading them over, and I'm pretty disappointed and sad with myself. Little Julia wasn't happy and wanted to change her life.. change the way she saw herself and the way others saw her as well. I feel the same way 5 years later. This is a huge wake up call. 5 years ago when I was worried about looking "good" for my first day of middle school, it seemed like the most important thing to me. Now in a month and a half I'll be going to my first day of senior year. I still have the same mindset as a pubescent, wheezing 13 year old. I'm still insecure, and I still want to lose a significant amount of weight. Of course I fell off... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 169 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Hey Everyone,
I am DONE being overweight. I've struggled with weight my ENTIRE life, I seriously cannot remember a time in a life when I was comfortable with my body. I went shopping the other day and there were two mirrors in the dressing room, so I saw EVERYTHING. I saw the folds on my back, I saw all the unsightly buldges and lumps. I start college in August (6 weeks!) I know I will not even be close to my goal by then, but I'm hoping to lost at least 8-10 pounds in 6 weeks, is that do-able? I want to feel pretty, confident, and really take control of my life. I've been to this site before, but I am DETERMINED to stick to it this time! Please help me.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 162 lb, Today: 157 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 118 lb - I keep dreaming that I reached my goal 118, I cry when I am moving around, it makes me sad, I go like where is 118 pounds, I mean I keep excrisieng, but the weight is being so slow, I wanted to be 125 pounds right now, it is anoying, for me, I srank almsot 3 pant size, and almost two shrit sizes.. It can be very anoying.. I feel like giving up sometimes.. But then I say no to that, I cant give up anymore, I know guys deafting junk food can be very hard to avoid since some of us are raised on it, or were and no longer are. I quiet eating a lot of junk food at parites. I gave up orange soda several mounths back.. And even sprite, and I used to love drinking it. But when I drink it, I get a bad taste in my mouth.. I cant stand it anymore.. I been geting skin off my meats. I give the skins to my dog and cats. They love skin..

Ht. 5'1", Start: 151 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 130 lb - Hey guys. Ive been overeating and going off my diet so Ive gained weight. I know it says Im 150 but Im probably 154 now. I didnt want to gain weight but Ive ben so hungry. My belly looks quite larger and even shakes and wobbles when a walk. My thighs are bigger and so are my arms. My stomach hangs over my pants a little. But Im going to go on a diet which I eat only fruits and veggies and some carbs for a bit.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 180 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 105 lb - I suffer from bulimia. I'm in treatment but whatever. I can't bear to be this fat anymore. Its hell. I'm tired of looking in the mirror and hating every second. I'm willing to do anything. I'm so disgusting and obese. I can't stop thinking that if I don't lose weight soon I'm going to have to kill myself. Its repulsive. I would rather be dead then look like this. I need a weight loss buddy?
