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.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 152 lb, Today: 149 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 110 lb - Hello, I'm new here. :) I thought I'd ask for some advise on my biggest problem I've been having. I am losing weight, but I don't notice it on myself. I also can't envision what I will look like, and it scares me. I constantly see "success story" pictures, but I can't imagine myself thin because I haven't been since I was 7. I feel like this is holding me back and I don't know what to do. Help!

Ht. 5'0", Start: 16 st 7, Today: 13 st 8 (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 10 st 7 - Just looking for a buddy for motivation!!!!!!
I'm really new to these things and I don't really know where to start. I have reached my absolute limit with my weight and cannot stand being overweight anymore. I have exhausted so many options. A Few months ago, through sheer hard work I was able to lose 3 stone but since then I have reached a point where I need someone else to help me along!  (Note: 13 st 8 is 190 lb.)

Ht. 5'8", Start: 216 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - I want to lose weight so badly that it's unreal. I want to look beautiful when beach season comes around. I want guys to want me, and girls to be jealous of what I look like. That's literally what I have dreamed about for so long now. I just can't lose the weight, it feels like I try so hard every time & it just never happens. I always cave in and end up eating bad food, and not working out. I don't know how to make myself stick to eating good and working out. I know that sounds dumb, but it's just so hard for me. I don't know what to do. I need to lose weight.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 190 lb, Today: 187 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - Hey guys! I'm new here and I must say losing weight is a big challenge for me. I live in a town that is full of girls with the most amazing bodies and I cant help but be envious. Though my number is big I hold my weight well! I'm looking forward to losing this weight because I know there is a skinny girl inside me just dying to come out! My junior prom is coming up and my best guy friend asked me to go. He's gorgeous so him asking made me feel pretty amazing! I want to lose so weight before prom though because the last thing I want to be doing that night is trying to cover up because I feel uncomfortable! REMEMBER EVERYONE: you're all beautiful, don't let anyone tell you other wise and beauty is only skin deep! Reply I would LOVEEE to talk with one of you!

I've been trying to lose weight for a while now, but i'll lose a few pounds, and then think i'll reward my self for a few days and end up gaining it back.

I'm polish, and today was paczki day. paczkis are a kind of polish donut, and today I ate three custard ones as a reward, without seeing how many calories they were. I just checked and they are...take a guess.... 1500 calories. each. thats 4500 calories, not counting my other meals! (they add up to about 750 calories) I ate 5250 calories today! thats more than a pound and a half! Please tell me what I should do. please help me, someone. I feel like puking, I'm so mad at myself, but i don't think that will help. I'm in tears, please help me what do i do I need to lose this weight I ate as much today as I do in a normal week! what do i do?
