I realized me moving to a new school for the year 2011-2012 could be the same exact thing if I did not make a change for myself. I began the year fine, but I was still self conscious about my weight. I decided to try out for basketball and I went to the doctors to get my physical done and I stepped on that scale and seeing that 200 lb number scared me horribly. I knew from that point on there needed to be a change for my health, but also for myself. I needed to feel and wanted to be proud of my body and not walk around being ashamed of who I was. Summer finally came around and I joined a gym and changed my whole entire life style from the way I ate and how active I was. I worked out every single... (view more)

Start: Ht. 4'7", 10 st 4 ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 4'9", 6 st 5 (BMI %tile: 69) - Well it started when I was teased at school about being fat and I thought I should go on a diet for a while and see where it goes. Mum was okay with it and for a while she encouraged me to lose weight. Then it started getting weird, my friends kept saying u look amazing and thought I could fit into their teeny clothes and it turned out they were just the right size. I felt so much better and I would tell everyone this: just exercise cut back on sweets and drink 6-8 cups of water a day. Hope this helpa (Note: 6 st 5 is 89 lb.)

Start: Ht. 5'3.5", 163 lb ( BMI %tile: 94) Today: Ht. 5'3.5", 142 lb (BMI %tile: 84) - I've had issues with weight my entire life. As a kid, I was never overweight, but I always had a little extra fat that a lot of other kids my age didn't have. I was never self conscious of it until sixth grade when I joined my school's cheerleading team. I was one of the bigger girls on the team, though still not overweight, and the little twig fliers would say I was too fat to be on the team. Eventually I ended up quitting the cheer team because of it, and it was excruciating knowing that my weight kept me from doing what I wanted to do.
I stayed roughly the same size (100 at 4'11") for all of seventh grade. The summer between 7th and 8th grade, I visited a friend on the other side of the country for a month. I was very homesick and got depressed, and eventually stopped eating. I had my growth spurt, and in eighth grade I was 5'3" and 100 pounds, ... (view more)

I can run and exersise but to be honest i hated it, in the middle of this January, 2013, i decided i wanted to loose weight before next school year starts. i exersised every day for about an hour, and ate 3-4 healthy meals a day. by the end of january i lost 7 pounds. I still have alot more to go, my goal is 150 pounds by at least august.
