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.

Ht. 5'9", Start: 247 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 175 lb - I thought the more weight I lost the happier I would be, however, when I was at my heaviest I didn't cry myself to sleep at night, which I do now. To tell you the truth I think I'm more unhappy than ever before because now I actually realise how heavy I was, and still am. I haven't lost any weight in a few months now and it's deflating. It's demoralising to know I can do it, because I have been doing it but now it's just gone to sh*t. My mantra always was 'I refuse to give up on myself' and yet that's exactly what I've done. Where did it all go wrong? And how do people keep going when they feel like giving up?

Ht. 5'10", Start: 302 lb, Today: 302 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hey, my name is Natalie and I have struggled with my weight sine I was a little girl. Honestly, I didn't think it would get this far. My weight is so up and down, I could lose and gain a couple pounds in the matter of a week. I don't get much support at home. My friends and family just don't really get it and I can't go to them after a binge or anything. I guess I am kind of in need of a buddy on here. Thanks!

Ht. 6'0", Start: 235 lb, Today: 235 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 190 lb - I'm at a point in my life right now where I get total control of my destiny. I want to fly one day, for a living, with a major airline. My dad will pay for my flight school, but not without first loosing some weight to show him I'm serious. It's so much harder than I thought. At first, the idea was gum. I put gum in my mouth, and it's an excuse to say no more. It worked, and I recommend it, but then I started taking the gum out. I guess I just need the strength to keep it in. I need to turn this around.

Ht. 4'11", Start: 610 lb, Today: 680 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 300 lb - Hi. I know I am probably the heaviest person to use this site, but I am really getting to a hard time. I cant figure out a way to lose weight. I can barely walk, my belly hangs past my knees so i have a lot of back pain. i cant find any clothes at all that fit. the thing I would like to find the most is pants and bras, I seem to be too big for normal sizes. If anyone knows a doctor that could help me that would be great. I keep falling which is making my health/ mobility worsen. Thanks, Nia
