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

It always holds me back and I feel horrible about it. My best friend is also overweight and has started to play soccer and get onto shape. I decided its time for me to do that too. I want to fit into a size 8 jeans by the time I am 15

Ht. 5'7", Start: 180 lb, Today: 210 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 135 lb - I've struggled with my weight since I was in first grade. Before I started 7th grade I was able to lose some weight but now I cant seem to. From December 2013 to may 2014 I've gained almost 30 pounds even thought I'm dieting and exercising. I don't know what to do anymore and I need help. My family is starting to get on me about needing to lose weight and since I've gained weight the few friends I had on the team no longer want to socialize with me since I'm bigger.. If anyone has something I can try to do it'd be greatly appreciated.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 247 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 147 lb - Alone is not even a word I would use to describe how I feel right now. Perhaps isolated, abandoned and crap. I've not lost any weight in weeks! My parents have limited gym hours to 3 a week due to upcoming exams which is annoying. The exersice part is going okay I guess it's just the diet part. Mum never has any vegetables or healthy food in the house even though she knows I'm eating healthy. They were supportive for a bit but now nothing... It's just aggravating because I've got LOADS of weight to lose but it's not going anywhere! Feel like just giving up sometimes.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 366 lb, Today: 366 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hello, I've always been quite large so finally my parents decided to do something about it. They sent me too fat camp. Even there I was bigger than the other campers and had trouble participating. By the end I only lost 2 pounds. At home I'm trying to eat better and do more exercise buts its pretty hard when your the size of a baby elephants.
I've been struggling a lot with my extra weight and these are some of the issues I've been dealing with.
#1. Walking around is a bit of a challenge. At my school there are two sets of stairs so witch I've had a lot of trouble walking up. I went and talked to the guidance counselor so I received permission to use the elevators. But even walking short distances I need to take many brakes and I'm dripping with sweat. I've been excused from gym and I try to do light stretches with the guidance counselor.
#2. No... (view more)

Ht. 5'9", Start: 200 lb, Today: 204 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - I've been overweight all my life, and I can't seem to lose any weight. Right now, I'm almost obese on an adult bmi scale, and very obese on a children's scale. I'm more than 50 pounds overweight. What's even worse is that I constantly need to buy new clothes to accommodate my 40 inch waist.

Ht. 4'11", Start: 187 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - I've always been overweight, it just never bothered me. Once I got into middle school, everyone made fun of me for it, and you know what, it sucks. I just don't know what to do about it, they just don't get that I'm trying. There's my rant for the day, thanks for reading

Ht. 5'9", Start: 329 lb, Today: 329 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - I've always been overweight, and I don't enjoy running or anything, but it has never been a mobility issue. I'm tall enough and lucky enough that my weight has grown more upward as opposed to making me rounder. I'm worried about later issues though. Also, being a plus size junior, who's already more mature than most of the boys, no one wants to date me. I really want/need to loose weight, and I'd love to be down a size or two by summer, but I have issues losing weight. I feel like I don't have time to exercise, and eating healthy is hard to do in public school. I could use all the help, tips, stories, and encouragement that I can get!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 205 lb, Today: 205 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I'm 13 and have been overweight if not obese for most of my life. I have tried loosing weight so many times I've lost track. At one point I was 175lb and was very motivated to loose weight I lost 15lb but quickly gained it back plus another 40lb. I have a school dance coming up in a few months and would love to lose 20lb by then. I also play softball and can't fit into my uniform without it being skin tight. I don't know what I can do to find motivation or something that will help me through trying to loose this weight. If anyone has any advise for me or anything that will help me get back on track to reach my goals I would love to hear them.
