I can't say tht I reached my weight goal. But my first I had lost 5 pounds within 2 days and I gai ned it back. I thought well this can't go on so I went on my second diet. I stayed on that diet for 2 weeks. I had lost ten pounds so now my weight was 200.5. I gained that back now I am struggling to get back on a steady diet which I willn be starting tomorrow which is 2/21/04. This time I will stick to my diet and get at my goal weight. I am currently 206 pounds. My goal weight is 120. I will be sure to check back in and let you all know how I am doind on this dient within three weeks. So be on the look out.

Had the best night out last night!!!! I know its not really about weight loss but I met this really great guy and I know hez been txting my mate all day trying to get my number!!! (yay for me!)- I'm still overweight but I feel so much better about myself now i've lost some (Its wierd I feel more confident now bigger than I did when i was smaller and put a bit on!) I got to 200 today - thats 30lbs gone!! I cant believe I've done it! And I cant wait to be under the 200 pound mark, but hopefully that should come next week!!! I still really wanna be 170 by may 23rd, but im thinking I only got 13 weeks so its a bit unrealistic, so im gonna try for 20lbs - which If i lost 1-2lbs a week I could do. Oh yeah I got 2 problems at the moment, the first is my legs and bum are a size 14 (uk size - dunno what in america) but my stomaches a size 16 - which means I either gotta wear jeans tight at the...

you guys i feel so hopeless! Ive tried to ask to set up a workout station at home, asking my mom to buy healthier foods and all sorts of things, but she wont let me! She says the only way I'll lose weight is to eat smaller portions of what she buys and jog outside, but I dont want to eat the "great" selection we have of nasty soybeans or fattening cheetos and I want to start working out inside and doing workout tapes becasue I hate jogging....HELP! i want to cry,and plus everytime i get motivated to lose weight either her or my dad tell me i wont stick with it, i always say that and it will never work becasue im lazy, i hate them!

Hi everybody. I would like to lose 40, 50, maybe 60 lbs. its hard for me to not eat the things I like to eat. I drink almost 7 glasses of water a day, thinking that will help, but it doesn't seem to. I am 6 ft tall, and weigh 243 lbs. I'm big for my age, and the weight part really bothers me, and depresses me. Advice please.

Hi, I'm about 170 pounds and I'm 5.2 I really want to lose weight, I tried really hard doing the kelloggs diet and doing sit ups in my room but at the end of the week I had gone up and it really got me down. I really want to lose this and I can't seem to get motivated. I need to know how to lose weight without anyone knowing because I don't want anyone to know that I think I'm fat. When I was doing the Kelloggs diet I think I may have been doing it wrong, can anyone help?

tomarrow at are school for the six grade there is goin to be a valintines dance and i was just wondering how many calories do you think you burn when you dance. now i think dances are stooped because all trhe boys in the six grade call me the thing and if i go near them they run a way because i weigh more than all the other girls.now i dont like it so i am goin to join in dancing with them. i think that if they do do babyish things like that when i walk near them i am goin to keep on goin near trhem until they become bigger babies and tell the teacher. what do ya think about this.
