Ht. 5'0", Start: 151 lb, Today: 145 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 100 lb - Hey there. I need help on losing some weight. I need to lose 45 pounds before summer starts. Any diets or exercise routines that may help or any encouragement would really help. My school serves ice cream, slushies, PB&J sandwiches, and soft pretzels everyday. It's kind of tempting not to eat some ice cream every now and then. Any advice?

I do have quite a stomach and thunder thighs. I recently went to the OBGYN and she told me that if I don't lose weight I'm going to get diabetes and probably won't be able to have kids. So I have decicded to take control starting with this.
I am currently 205 lbs
I want to be around 180 by graduation in june then eventually in the 160s before I start college.
I am going to do weigh ins on Tuesday mornings.

Ht. 4'10", Start: 200 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 100 lb - Hi! I have done this so many times over the years but this time I am actually excited about losing weight!?! I don't really know why I am this time around... I guess its because I'm starting college real soon and I want to go in looking new... I think another part to is it because... The worlds different when you on the other side of the wall... I want to be on that side. Not being ashamed of who I am and how I look... I want to be happy with how I look... So I need to become healthy... My family say they don't care how I look and they love me but its hard going through life when ALL of my friends are skinny twigs and running pass me in life... I want to become healthy so I can at least keep up with them... So here goes Day number 1. Email me if you need a buddy like I do... Booksaremylove@gmail.com

Ht. 5'4", Start: 281 lb, Today: 275 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 125 lb - Whoa whoa whoa, this is the first time I've ever posted in the 18+ board. I just turned 18 on the 12th so... here I am. I thought it would be interesting to post here instead of the teens board. I haven't really been to this site in awhile and I have not been eating healthy at all lately or exercising. But I did just have a really good workout... I'm hoping to get back on track with eating well and exercising consistently. Let's hope I can do it. I'm sick of being obese. Good luck everyone! (:

I used to come to this website when I was younger and today I was filling really discouraged so I decided to look it up again. My mom and my sister are both tall and skinny and they both have been pressuring me to losse weight ans I want to do it myself so I can be healthy. Their so called support is not helping. Im going off to college in about six months and I hoping to reach my goal. I would just like some help from those who know what how I fill. Please everyone fill free to leave me advice on how to reach my goal. Thanks.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 255 lb, Today: 255 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - I'm SO sick of being so fat. I hate looking at myself in the mirror, and I hate seeing the stretch marks on my stomach. I hate when people touch me because they are just touching fat. I want to be able to shop where everyone else shops and hang out with them and never have to worry. I need some help. I would absolutely LOVE to have someone I can keep in touch with girl or guy, but that is my age to help me out and help me feel better about myself, but also back me up and support me. I'm using an app on my iPhone called my personal fitness. I track all of my foods on there, I'm putting myself on a 1200 calorie a day diet. I'm doing it that low because I can't really work out right now. I tore my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus about a week ago. Now I am in Physical therapy and having surgery soon. I REFUSE to gain weight while I'm not on my feet. More than anything, I want to feel beautiful. I want guys to see me and think I'm pretty. But I want to feel beautiful for me. Please help guys </3

Ht. 5'7", Start: 202 lb, Today: 197 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 130 lb - I used to come on this site when I was about 14, and just rediscovered it today. I've recently become terribly ashamed over my weight, as I just stepped over the 200 lbs mark about a month ago. I've been overweight for the majority of my life, and I feel like it just holds me back immensely. I'm ready to finally get control over my life, and lose about 70 lbs to do so. I am 19 now, technically an adult, so I feel like it is time to become the person I want to be, and that starts with losing weight and gaining confidence.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 127.6 lb (BMI: 24), Goal: 115 lb - This was what I weighed this morning =(. It's such a shame when I've been steadily losing to start going back up again. Totally my fault though - my exercise regimen is non-existent and I've been eating what I want, when I want (which is a recipe for disaster, lol).
The upside to having to lose these pounds again is that it's hit me more than it ever has that this is a lifetime lifestyle I need to maintain. I can't just get down near my goal weight and suddenly start eating Ben & Jerry's pints of ice cream or having that extra helping at dinner, etc. and expect to stay slim.
I've re-prioritized and I'm going to start incorporating more of my previous methods back into daily life - mainly portion control, exercise and water intake.
It's nice to see everyone on here refusing to give up when a bad day/week comes your way. Makes me feel like I can be that strong too =).

Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 229 lb (BMI: 39), Goal: 170 lb - As I am reading through I noticed I am not the only one struggling lately! It has been really hard to get up to exercise and eat only until full for about the last week. I need to get a fire under my butt again to get moving. I am really getting angry with myself for not doing/working as hard as I should/can. Well as I get myself going again, I want to wish everyone luck on getting back on track and congrats to those who are still going strong :)
