Ht. 5'4", Start: 220 lb, Today: 220 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Hi my name is tia. I have been overweight my whole life. I would always be picked on even til this day. My mom never thought I was over weight and thought it was still baby fat. And I knew it wasn't. By the time I was in fourth grade I was 170 lbs. I would get picked on because I was the only big kid in my class. I had determination to lose weight, so I started boxing with my cousin. I had lost 10 lbs the whole two months I was there and I never stopped. Until my mom started to drink. She started staying home and I started staying in my room. I knew that I had to exercise and lose more fat. I decided to go back when I was in fifth grade. I had no friends in fifth grade so it was very difficult to find someone to hang out with because I was starting to get shy. So that's when I started to gain more and more. By the time I went back to boxing, I weighed 195... (view more)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 395 lb, Today: 395 lb (BMI: 60), Goal: 167 lb - Hi everyone! My name is Amber and I used to use this site a lot back when I was a pre-teen and a teenager. Unfortunately I was unable to implement the healthy changes and advice that I received here at those ages and have gained even more weight into adulthood. I've come to the realization that my life does need to change or it won't be very long. I have a lot of work ahead of me and none of it is going to be easy, and knowing me and my motivation level it won't be very quick either. However, I could really use some support, any that I can get and thought posting here might be worth it! I'd also love to offer my own support and a listening ear to anyone who needs it. I have a blog, toofatformywings.wordpress.com for anyone who would like to follow my journey, and an email address available too for those who would like it. Contact me and i'd be happy to give it to you. Much luck and best wishes to all here.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 340 lb, Today: 340 lb (BMI: 53), Goal: 240 lb - Hi guys, so. . . I guess you have to hit rock bottom, in order to help yourself rise back up? I am so unhappy. I want to be happy again. I am in such a weird situation. I know 26 sounds old, but I don't feel old. . . or like an adult. I need to do some serious growing up. Well, here goes my story. I have been with my boyfriend for 2 and a half years, he likes big guys, but has told me several times that he wants me to be healthy. I want to be healthy too! But, I have some motivation issues as well as a hernia to kind of hinder my motivation. I want to be at a more manageable weight. I want to fit in good looking clothes again! I have put on so much weight that I wear a size 3X shirt and 46 pants I just want to be normal again. I also want to keep my relationship. . . keeping in mind that my boyfriend likes big guys. I know this is a... (view more)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 175.5 lb, Today: 196.5 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130.5 lb - Hi, I'm Trystan. I've been over weight since I was basically in kindergarten. I wasn't made fun of really, but it hurt myself knowing that I was overweight. When I was in 5th grade, I was already 156.9 pounds.. Right now, I just ended 7th grade at 196.5 pounds. I know I'm obese. I have been made fun of lately, and it hurts. I just got a membership at a gym with my mom, and have lost a pound. Its not much, but since last month, I've lost 10.5 pounds. I was over 200 pounds at a point in my life.Being bullied has made me realize that if I don't start losing weight, I'll be made fun of for a long time. I kept telling myself at the end of 2014 that I could lose weight.. But I've only gained. Its time for me to take control of my life! I'm ready to get that beach body I've always wanted.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 321 lb, Today: 300 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - I have been overweight my whole life. My weight has been the one thing bully's and people who do not like me have against me. All of my friends are size 0-6 and then there's me at size 22. I feel like they shouldn't even be friends with me. When I see pictures of us I stick out like a sore thumb. I'm ugly. I hate it. I've never had a boyfriend or a boy even show any interest in me and I know it's because I'm fat. My mom put me in a bootcamp when I was 11 years old because I was overweight. They made me run on a treadmill and when I told them to stop they made it speed up. I've been traumatized. I was diagnosed with depression in March and my motivation in school, losing weight and life is diminishing. I've really been trying these past 2 months and I've lost 21 pounds but my... (view more)

It feels like no matter what I do the weight still piles on. I'm constantly battling the urge to just quit trying altogether. Hope there are some of you out there who know how I feel.

Ht. 5'7", Start: 173 lb, Today: 173 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 125 lb - Hi guys! I'm kind of new to this so bare with me here!!
I guess I should start off with my story. Uh, there's not really much to it. I was a small kid until around 7 or 8, when I've not had any success in loosing weight. It feels like no mattermy mom started to own a restaurant. We would eat the food there constantly and it just wasn't healthy at all. That's when I can remember starting to gain weight.
I have super supportive friends, which I'm blessed for. And only few people have ever made fun of me. I don't look as big as I am in my opinion, but my height probably factors into that. Anyways, back to my point. I've not had any success in loosing weight. It feels like no matterI have always wanted to lose weight. I am just an insecure person in general. I am insecure with basically everything. Lately I feel like I have been... (view more)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 210 lb, Today: 210 lb - My name is Robyn, and I'm overweight. My younger days I was an average girl, that had no worries, but things changed when my family and I moved to Georgia. I gained a lot if weight. I thought it was a phase but it wasn't. My mom always told me that I was a very pretty girl that has a little meat on her bones. I believed her.
I am in my middle school years I feel very self conscious. I like this boy. He is much skinnier but cute, talented, and popular. I am certain that he likes me but it's a voice in my head that says "he will never like you you're too big and ugly".So I back out in everything. Sports, clubs, and young love. I pray that things get better, hopefully it will.
One day I will learn to love myself for me. The sooner the better.☺ email me ~ firstname.lastname@example.org

Ht. 5'2", Start: 160 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I am 13 and pretty overweight. I have a wide and stock build, but it's mostly fat. My belly sags over my belt line and its uncomfortable. I can't fit in good clothes because they don't make them in my size. Right now, I am getting healthier according to my pediatrician but it is a genetic issue, and I was adopted. My biggest problem is my clothing and how it looks. There are a few kids at my school who make fun of my weight because I don't fit in any kids clothes. Right now I eat 3,500 cal a day and get some excercise. Please help me with my clothes and my eating habits

I wish that I could change and that I could fix all of this but I just don't know how to. I don't think anyone will ever like me.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 190 lb, Today: 190 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 135 lb - I don't remember a time in my life that I WASN'T overweight. I've never really been bullied for my weight but getting dirty looks from other kids says it all. About a year and a half ago I weighed around 150 pounds and lost about 20 pounds when I did a weight loss program with my older brother. Since then I've gained it all back plus more. That wasn't the only time I've tried to lose weight either; I've tried many other times. I'm a freshman in high school so I want to me a "new me" by the beginning of sophomore year.

I can't let that happen. I dance, and want to continue(ballet &jazz). I just want to be a normal size. Right now, I am a size 16! And I want to be at a size 4. All my other friends are very skinny and I feel like the odd one out every time. I feel guilty every time I eat something that the slightest bit unhealthy:-( I want to get back on track and be the size I want. My goal is that I will be 110, and a size 4-6 by age 15

Ht. 5'5", Start: 185 lb, Today: 185 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 120 lb - I have always felt bigger than all the other kids and felt like i was fat and I just dismissed it because my parents told me i would grow. I haven't.. When i sit, I have to pull my shirt so it isnt touching my stomach. I hate feeling so disgusting in my own skin. I have never felt good enough or pretty enough and it's time for a change. I really really need to change.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 157 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 90), Goal: 120 lb - Hello!! So I have been really skinny for the past 12 years and also short, but when I turned 12 I grew a lot... In both ways. I went from about 4'9 to 5'5 in 2 years and gained about 70 pounds. I am not sure why I gained so much, because I do exercise a lot (Tae-kwon do 4 hours a week, frisbee 2 hours a week) and I don't eat fast food or sugar that much. My sister who is a year older then me stayed thin. A few months ago I started to want to lose weight and lost 10 lbs in 3 days, but then gained it back and then lost it. That keeps on happening, so I was just wondering, how do I lose weight and not gain it back?
And also, how do I look better in my clothes? My jeans always make my belly stick out over the top, and the rest of my clothes are loose T-shirts, dresses and skirts.
