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 ~ beautifulthompson122501@yahoo.com

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

Ht. 5'3", Start: 100 lb, Today: 133 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 90 lb - Hi I have gained a lot of weight and I always feel self conscious about that. in fact I suffered from depression and this year has been really tough for me since I have a lot of acne scars and facial hair more than the boys at my school. 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.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 196 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 110 lb - Hey I've been in this site before, but only for a little while. I am very scared that I will hit 200lbs! 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.
Thanks!!! :D

Ht. 5'3", Start: 523 lb, Today: 523 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 250 lb - I really don't know how to change my weight. I'm incredibly embarrassed about being so fat that I rarely go out. Last summer I only left the house twice over the course of 8 weeks. I've been trying to eat healthier and have cut back a lot but I counted yesterday and I'm still eating over 5000 calories. On top of that I can barely walk for more than a minute so I can't exercise. Please I really need some advice as I can't carry on like this

Ht. 5'4", Start: 160 lb, Today: 158 lb (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 135 lb - Hello everyone! I've been trying to lose weight my whole life. I've always been the "chubby" friend and I'm determined to change that. With my future weight loss I'm more focusing on becoming more fit and working on my health choices. I was looking for anyone who would like to create a weight loss/fitness group. I was thinking of creating a group via twitter so everyone can post about their successes that day, or post when someone is struggling and are in need of some moral support. Now if anyone was interested you wouldn't have to use your personal twitter, just create a new one if you would like! This would just be a cool, different way to have constant support from other people who are also trying to improve their fitness. If anyone is interested in maybe putting something together with me either comment on this post or find me on twitter! The username I’m using is @RunKaitRun15 (lol). Just DM and tell me you’re interested that way. Either way good luck with everyone’s fitness goals!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 188 lb, Today: 168.8 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 140 lb - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I cannot wait to continue with my weight loss. For me, this is the most weight I have ever lost collectively. Usually I lose 10 pounds and then end up falling off the wagon. Now I have lost 19 pounds! Don't get me wrong I still have a lot to go, but now I know that I CAN and WILL get there. My new short-term is to fall under 165 pounds before costume fittings in my Drama Club, but you know what will be the most amazing thing? Falling under 160 lb. because I have not been there in over a year! Thank you to this website for motivating me to get to my goal and showing me that I am not alone.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 165 lb, Today: 140 lb (BMI %tile: 73), Goal: 115 lb - At the start of the school year I started watching what I eat, reducing portions, etc. That went on for a few weeks and I lost some weight until my mom made me eat more because she thought I was becoming anorexic. I honestly think I wasn't because I was still eating plenty. I run and dance and I want to look better for prom, college and my solo performances coming up but I also just want to feel better and be more confident. My friends always make subtle and sometimes very hurtful comments about my size. Homecoming dress shopping with them was a nightmare. I don't know how to lose weight without my mom noticing. Help!
