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!

Ht. 5'4", Start: 167 lb, Today: 188 lb (BMI %tile: 97) - I remember when I was smaller. Even then I thought I was extremely overweight(I was). This isn't a successful story just yet but I'm on a mission to lose 60 pounds my goal is to weigh 128 by next school year or at least by next Christmas. Wish me luck 😍😊😊💕

Ht. 5'3", Start: 215 lb, Today: 215 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Hi. well this is the first time I've been on here and I have to let this out. Im so tired of being over weight especially for my height for a number of reasons. 1.)I am the biggest grandchild in my family. On BOTH my mom and dads side and it sucks. I used to hear stories about how when my mom was my age she wasn't as big as me. Now don't get me wrong she was never a skinny mini or anything i guess you could describe her as 'Thick'. She looked good in bathing suits and shorts and skirts and stuff and she was naturally toned. Now both my parents have never been skinny at all, but they werent overweight. And hearing stories about my grandparents and how they were as older people would say 'hot stuff' or 'foxy' makes me sad. I've never even been called cute (not considering my outfit). My grandmothers could pull literally any guy they wanted. And I cant even get a... (view more)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 214 lb, Today: 214 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Well hello guys! Um, well my story is that I'm 214 pounds and don't feel all that good about myself at this weight. I know being at a smaller weight won't make me feel better so i'm really just working on being a better me. My family and I actually went on a diet a few months ago. My mom cut off all soda and she lost almost 14 pounds in just a few weeks because our eating habits were different and i got down to about 208 in about 2 weeks. All of the sudden it just stopped. I write down every food I eat on this app called "My Fitness Pal". It's a really good resources and I believe you can add friends on there too so you can add me "croninx0x" i believe. And I do the dance workout videos but i just cant seem to get motivated. If you have any suggestions or want to talk, my health and fitness blog/tumblr is "croninx0xfit.tumblr.com" so you can message me on there. you can even message anonymously if youre uncomfortable! Thanks guys!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 206 lb, Today: 206 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hi I'm Ashley. And I've struggled with my weight since I was little. I literally hate myself for it and I'm so insecure that it holds me back from doing a lot of things. I feel like everyone just stares at me and points and says oh that's the fat girl. In 8th grade I started to starve myself and I lost about 30 pounds but then I knew that was unhealthy so I started to eat again. And gained way too much weight back. I just have no motivation anymore I just im so done feeling this way I really am. I'm just sad when it comes down to it. And I feel like there's no one there to help me get through it.I don't know how to be motivated, I truly don't.
