Ht. 5'6", Start: 338 lb, Today: 341 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - So I'm having a really hard time, I've gained some more weight! After graduating high school, I considered moving out. Unfortunatly, I didn't have enough money so I stayed home. Two years later im still here...and fatter than ever. I've been overweight since I was 12. My mom and dad got a divorce and my mom brought fast food home everyday. I gained so much weight my mom sent me to fat camp. It was devastating being around kids who were smaller than me, even at FAT CAMP I was fatter than everyone! After the summer was over, I went home and really tried to be healthy, but it didn't last. I gained more weight back than I started out! Now, I'm nineteen almost 350 pounds and living at home. I just don't know what to do! It seems like I'm gaining weight everyday. I'm getting bigger and bigger. I get rude looks everywhere I go! Does anyone have any advice?

Start: 16 st 0, Today: 16 st 0, Goal: 13 st 0 - It's Diet time for Me, I'm just so horribly hugely F-A-T. I weigh a big 16 stone and I'm only 13! This time I'm sticking to it-no matter what- or they'll be calling me Ellie the Elephant if I'm not careful. My friends Ruby and Paris think I'm mad- but it's all right for them. Ruby looks like a model and has a chance to be a real cover girl. Paris is drop dead gorgeous but not me oh no, I'm just the big fat sad turkey who sits in the corner stuffing it face with food. I've been on a lot of diets but they have never worked out. There is a girl in my grade who is about 17 stone or something is she is 14. I'll be bigger then her before I no it. I'm fat. Fat Fat Fat!  (Note: 16 st 0 is 224 lb.)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 175 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 125 lb - Today I went to the doctor for a check up, and he told me that I've become obese. He made me take off my shirt and he looked at my belly, he told me that I'm close to developing diabetes and other issues. I've been fat for as long as I can remember. I love food, all I think about is food, I'm usually always eating. In the last 5 months or so, I've gained around 40 pounds. I've noticed that doing nothing simple tasks is becoming hard. Like walking up the stairs, running, or even walking for long periods of time makes me out of breath and tired. My belly had grown in size the most, but so has my arms and legs. My arms are extremely flabby and have lots of stretch marks, my belly hangs over my pants and has many rolls and stretch marks, and my legs rub together. I don't know what to do, my mom said that if I hit 200 pounds, she sending me to fat camp. I really don't want to go to fat camp because I think I'll be made fun of. Does anyone have advice?

Ht. 5'3", Start: 193.5 lb, Today: 201.5 lb (BMI: 36), Goal: 110 lb - I gave up and gained really fast. Yesterday I got back in to it and am taking a different approach. I'm a binger of unhealthy foods and I lack motivation to work out. Those are my main 2 problems. Also the wine at night doesn't help my motivation or calorie intake. It's time to get it together and I'll take any tips and/or advice anyone has.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 203 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 188 lb - I was never overweight let alone obese until this year. During this past 4/5 months I have gained at least 60 lbs. All i think about is eating. I love food. I love how it tastes. I don't know what to do. I dont want to stop eating or go on a diet but my parents are watching what I eat. I hate it. I hate my body too.
