Ht. 4'11", Start: 176 lb, Today: 176 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 105 lb - People have started calling me fat in 1st grade.One time in 4th grade we were all suppose to write a paragraph about how we exersice and we could go in front of the whole class and read it out loud.Well i decided not to because you didnt have to.So then this boy in my class aske me "do you even exersice" i was shocked that he asked that i thought it was totally rude.Till this day i still dont like him.Well its summer and im heading off to 7th grade and i would at least like to lose 40 pounds.

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?

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!
