Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 166 lb (BMI: 25), Goal: 145 lb - Only been 4 days and I lost a pound! I'm starting to get the hang of this now. The first three days were brutal though, i was SO moody and irritable and felt like i was going to cry constantly. I don't know if it was because of PMS (sorry tmi) or because i hit rock bottom and had no self esteem and didn't completely believe i could stick with it but so far so good. I'm NOT going to fall off the wagon again. I will diet consistently for 4 weeks straight and allow myself ONE day of eating whatever i want (within reason) before beginning again. In 8 weeks i hope to lose 12 pounds. I think the key is not denying yourself anything. My mom had brought home some two-bite brownies and I allowed myself to have 4 of them (360 calories) But I kept it within my calorie allowance so i feel as though I cheated when I really didn't. Hope everyones doing great, let's liven up this board though, its pretty dead lol have a good one ladies

Ht. 5'2", Start: 163 lb, Today: 163 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - Well, I just got through with my first year of college and unfortunately I gained some weight. The worst part is I wasn't happy with my weight before I went to college so now I am even more unhappy. I am serious about losing weight this summer... I say that every summer,but this time I am really going to work hard at it. I want to lose 33 lbs before I go back to school in August. Also, I am going to Texas for a family reunion in June and I want to lose weight before that too, at least 10-15 lbs,20 would be great though! Hopefully I can actually do it this time!!!

Ht. 5'11", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 170 lb - Hey all, Never thought id be looking on the internet about being fat :P even though I am overweight. =/ I am going on a vactation for summer with my mom to Mexico and the beach seems SO relaxing, but im embarrassed because I am overweight. I am muscular and my friends or people who I play sports with always like to call me "tank" or "beast" and I honestly like it. But I cant keep my mind off of the kids who are skinny and stuff, with people calling me fat when I was a kid... maybe 10 but I lost about 35 pounds, I just hate being embarrassed about being overweight. People always go to the conclusion that fat people always eat all day and all they do is eat cake,McDonalds,chips,chocolate... For my this honestly isnt true. I gained a lot of weight when I was a young kid, about 7-9. My mom went to Mc Donalds about 3-4 times a week. Im not... (view more)

Ht. 5'10", Start: 195 lb, Today: 202 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 195 lb - I've tried to stay at the same weight but I just keep gaining more and more weight. It's not like I'm overeating THAT much.. I only eat when I'm hungry. I've had to study all this week so I can't exercise, and all I do while studying is eat (since I'm hungry all the time)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 155 lb - For as long as I can remember, I've always felt self conscious and uncomfortable with how I look. I've been overweight since about 3rd grade. I've always sort of been in denial because when I look in the mirror I always think I don't look that big, but when I'd see myself in pictures I'd see what I really look like. I don't hate exercising but it's hard for me to stop eating. I want to finally be able to buy clothes and look good in them, and be able to wear a bikini.. which skinny girls take for granted. I'm hoping that with support from others I can finally turn my life around. Anyone feel free to talk to me, I'd love to!

Ht. 5'5", Start: 173 lb, Today: 167 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 115 lb - Well, here I am. I'm 14 and fat. I have always been overweight, and I knew it I just thought I was just chubby-but I was wrong. I'm doing weigh-down. My mom and her friends and I started it last july. Her friend lost 50 pounds, my mom has lost 30 pounds and I lost 10 pounds....and then I gave up and started slipping up. And now here I am. I wear sweatshirts to hid my body. I know I can do it, but when it's time to eat I have no control.....please I need motivation....

Ht. 5'3", Start: 138 lb, Today: 138 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 120 lb - I REALLY feel like giving up right now... I don't know what to do! I try not to let anybody know that I'm trying to lose weight, which makes it so much harder. I've only made small changes, so I'm probably not going to lose any weight. I eat a little less at each meal, don't take seconds, do some pushups, crunches, etc. everyday, but it just seems so hopeless! I really want to be thin, but I just am on the verge of giving up AGAIN! I was planning on being 120 by June 13, (the day we leave for our trip. Can I lose 18 pounds in about a month and two weeks? Probably not. I've only been going for a couple days now, not even a week, and I can't stick to it! How pathetic... My huge stomach and chubby legs are horrible. Out of school P.E. and home exercises, all I have is soccer practice, which I HATE going. I don't fit in there... If I were to continue my slightly changed routine, would I even lose any weight? help

Ht. 5'7", Start: 155 lb, Today: 183 lb (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 165 lb - Hey everyone! So i haven't been on this site in about 5 years! I used to come on all the time when I was younger and weight around 200 pounds. Since then I went down to around 155 just through eating less sweets and stuff and doing exercise. At the end 2009 I was at my lowest weight of about 155, and I felt so good! But study and work got in the way and I was eating HEAPS of junk food and went up to 198, a couple of months I started going back to the gym and atm im down to 183 but i want to eventually get back to 150ish. Im setting smaller goals so it doesnt seem like such a huge amount. Im going to try and post my food and exercise every few days just to try and stay motivated because thats my biggest problem. I can being doing really well for like 2-3 weeks then all of a sudden i just stop and think its too hard so I need you guys to help keep me on track :)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 190 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 160 lb - Me? I've been overweight not too long... maybe 3-4 years and I HATE it. Im made fun of and laughed at. People really need to calm the eff down about weight issues, NOBODYS perfect. I just just started jogging and I have been for 2 n 1/2 weeks and I lost 8 pounds its gonna be hard for some people like me to lose the wait but you can do it! It helps if u have a friend or family memeber to motivate u jus sayin. (: Good luck to who ever else is trying.
