Start: 320 lb, Today: 320 lb, Goal: 280 lb - My name's Kelley. I've always been big, but at 16, I am the biggest I have EVER been at 320 pounds and a size 24 pants. I've been trying since I was 5 to lose weight. At one point I was below 180, and was still getting told that it wasn't good enough, that I wasn't good enough. Now I wish I would have never listened to people. It's hard for me to look in the mirror now. I hate myself. I hate that I have to cut down all the time, and I can't eat in public without feeling ashamed.. I'm graduating in a year, and for my graduation I want to be at least down to a size 20.

im 14 years old going on 15. im insecure about myself due to the fact my friends are twiggs im sure uve all had the feeling when ur ugly and you just wish you could walk out in life completely. i try not to tell people how i feel becuase they always tell me im not fat im just chubby or need to get toned. this year i learned not to care as much what others think nut in the back of my head i hear a voice tellin me your ugly and fat just stop trying. just know you should never let anyone hate yourself because of who you are, be and love yourself because no one can change you but YOU!!!!!!! love yourself cuz you will always be you. <3

Ht. 5'4", Start: 178 lb, Today: 178 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 128 lb - okay, so I'm really trying to get healthy this summer but I keep cheating before I even lose any weight like today I walked a mile to CVS to get candy and ice cream. I wish I could be that motivated to exercise. As much as I try I feel as if I'll never be able to be healthy... :(

Ht. 5'7", Start: 248.6 lb, Today: 245.2 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - So I have something that I need to get off my chest.. Does nobody else fear what their body will look like once they've lost weight? I know I'll be healthier when I'm at my goal weight but inside, all I can think of is the fact that I'm going to have saggy skin (I fear my arms and stomach most) and all of my stretch marks will still be there, and I have them literally everywhere! Arms (even the outside), abdomen, thighs, calves, back. They're EVERYWHERE! It's all I can think about.. How I'll be really proud once I've managed to reach my goal, but I'll still despise the way my body looks, and I'll never ever be able to wear a bikini like my friends do. PLEASE tell me I'm not alone in this! How do you guys deal with it? I hope everyone's doing well and keeping on track x

Ht. 5'7", Start: 247 lb, Today: 214 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 160 lb - Hey guys, I've always been on the heavy side, and ive been trying to lose weight for as long as i can remember, even when i was little. Im so sick of being the heavy girl. Im the heaviest out of my friends by far. My family is on the heavy side as well but i dont feel like i get the weight loss support from my family that i would like. In the past year ive really been trying to get serious and lose weight. This summer im hopeing to have weight loss crack down and drop some serious pounds. I want to start running but im finding it really hard to get into, and i can never seem to push myself to work harder. If anyone has any tips or advice please share, or if anyone wants to be online weight loss buddies let me know!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 152 lb, Today: 174 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 150 lb - Hi everyone. this is my first time posting on here, and I hope you all will be able to help. I just finished my freshman year of highschool. Over the course of this year, I put on 22 pounds. I've been denying it all year, because i didn't want to deal with it. A lot of my clothes don't fit. My stomach now hangs over my pants, and I have to suck it in to be able to button my jeans. I can no longer wear any of my snugger shirts, because of the way i stick out over my pants. I don't feel like I've been eating anything differently, or exercising less (I'm SUPER active- I'm a wrestler and I wrestle 4 days a week and also play soccer). I'm very muscular, but I also know that 174 lbs is too much for someone my age. I carry a lot of weight in my stomach, and as a result it hangs out from under my shirts, as well as bulging out when I sit down. It's getting big enough that my friends are starting to notice, and I don't want to get very obese. I'm starting to get bigger again, and I want to put a stop to it before it gets out of hand. What should I do?

Ht. 5'3", Start: 152 lb, Today: 389 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hey, I havent posted in a while. Bad news. :( I gained even more weight.I tried to listen to all the advice people have been giving me, but I cant help myself. When my parents are around, I am good about not eating too much. Last time i posted I told about when I went to the doctor, and my Mom told me how gross it is that I am so big. Ever since then my Mom has been watching me when she's around, but whenever she's gone, I binge like crazy. Most of my friends have cars, and are also overweight, so we go to mc donalds or burger king and eat, and we eat so much more than we should. my friends arent as big as i am and when they cant finish their food I finish it for them, even if it makes me want to throw up. I cant stop putting on this weight, and I honestly don't even know what to do anymore.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 190 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 135 lb - I'm frustrated. Like I said on my last post I've lost 14 lbs....Now it seems like no matter how dutiful I am with exercise or how well I ate that day that I just can't shake any weight off. I go up a bit then I go down a bit then I stay the same then up then down....good news is I'm really good at maintaining, just not losing. Any tips to rev up my metabolism, exercise tips, food tips?
