Start: Ht. 5'4", 188 lb ( BMI %tile: 97) Today: Ht. 5'4", 173 lb (BMI %tile: 95) - Hi, guys, I'm Caitlyn. I started struggling with my weight around 5th grade. I've always been bigger than most of my friends and it's always kept me down. I'm currently in my senior year of high school and I decided that enough is enough. I wanted to be fit and I wanted to look in the mirror and finally feel good about myself. I've lost 16 pounds so far and I've got a lot to go. My friend and I are going to Disneyland for our senior trip and I want to look fabulous by the time we leave. For my "diet" I've been following Jorge Cruise's plan, The Belly Fat Cure. You don't have to count calories and you can still eat delicious food. All you do is monitor your intake of carbs and sugar. As for exercising, I go to the gym every day. I run on the treadmill for as long as I can, and then walk at an incline for a while. Then I do some weights, doing my arms, legs, and abs. It's pretty intense, but it's obviously working. I'm determined to stick with it and reach my goal weight! Good luck to everyone out there trying to lose weight. You can do it!

Start: Ht. 5'4", 239.8 lb ( BMI: 41) Today: Ht. 5'4", 186.7 lb (BMI: 32) - so i've had some diet success and thought i would share what works for me.....
1) I eat 3 small meals a day on a six inch dessert plate----> instant portion control,and i still satisfy my need tofinish my plate.
i eat slow, enjoy what i am eating,and don't go for seconds!
2) this is kinda weird but when i first started dieting i took my bed and my sofa out my bedroom no where to be lazy and you won't be lazy i literally slept on the floor for 5 months to break me of the lazy habits. it's not coomfortable at all believe me you won't be chillin on the floor lol
3)i honestly lost all the weight up until this point without "exercising" i just move extra....when no one is looking i do little dances or stretch or tap my hands or swing my legs, it adds up i am sure cus i never had to enter a gym or step on a treadmill. the weight fell off lol
now that i am in the 180's i want to start moving and toning so my next endeavor is to run. i am starting a walk/run/jog plan that hopefully will speed up some weight loss-----> i wanna hit my goal by august!!!

Start: Ht. 5'5", 150 lb ( BMI %tile: 94) Today: Ht. 5'6", 124 lb (BMI %tile: 70) - In the matter of only 3 months, I cut out all soda and juice from my diet and just drank water. I lost about 5 pounds in a month without realizing it and when I saw that just a small change in my diet made such a difference to my weight, I gained a whole new confidence to lose the weight so that I can be happy with my body and change my lifestyle. My family and I always ordered lunch and dinner from a fast food restaurant and soon junk food became an addiction and I realized I needed to get my family to stop and thats exactly what I did, and when they did order pizza for example i would never eat it and have some veggies or cereal instead which really helped me not get tempted to eat the pizza and not give up on my diet.Everytime I thought of giving up, I'd think about how sad I am with my body, the fact that I'll never be happy in a...

Start: Ht. 5'0", 160 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'5", 118 lb (BMI %tile: 58) - You have absolutely no idea how long I've been waiting to write this, and how good it feels to be able to. For as long as I remember, I've been overweight. I hated my life because everyday i would get made fun of to the point that I didn't want to live anymore. it was a childhood no one should ever have to go through.
To reach my official goal weight , i still need to lose 8 lbs, and I want to be at my ideal body by my 14th birthday in October. if I can do it , so can you. Exercise every day, watch what you eat. Don't focus on the past, live in the present.
No one should hide behind their weight like I did for so long. It's time for change.

Start: Ht. 5'4", 212 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'6", 145 lb (BMI %tile: 84) - deciding to lose weight is the best decision I ever made! I feel so much better about myself (even though I do have those moments...) Since I've lost weight, I've done so many things. I've become a singer, a model, a journalist, and I've gone on a mission trip to help take care of the homeless. I've also taken up beauty pageants and have won a state title; something I never would've even imagined possible before! I've even filmed a commercial! I've gone from a size 22 to a size 8. Shopping is actually FUN now! I feel so much better now, physically and emotionally. I want everyone to know that they CAN do it. If you give it enough determination, it's not hard at all; it's almost fun!

Start: Ht. 4'10.5", 118 lb ( BMI %tile: 92) Today: Ht. 5'1.5", 100 lb (BMI %tile: 35) - I was always the chubby kid in school and sometimes people made fun of me for it. I mean, not telling me I was fat, but saying things like "you should be on the football team, they need fatter people". It did not really hurt me until my doctor told me that I should really lose a few lbs. In August of 2010, I was at my highest weight of 118lbs I started a "diet" in which I ate everything that I wanted, in moderation, before 6PM. It was so hard at first, but I got used to it and I began to feel a lot "cleaner and more energetic". Anyways, today I am at 100 lbs,2 lb less than my goal weight! Keep it up everyone!

Start: Ht. 5'2", 210 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'5", 130 lb (BMI %tile: 61) - Oh my gosh, it's so fantastic being able to do this finally. I was overweight forever but then my doctor gave me a wakeup call. I had to lose the weight or else I was going to get diabetes. Now I'm at a healthy weight (finally!!!) without any additional help (no diet pills! no lap band! no surgery! WOOT!). I feel a million times better about myself. For people still trying to lose weight, just know this: find a way to exercise that is FUN FOR YOU. For years I tried doing workouts like running around the track and riding a stationary bike but it wasn't fun, so I started doing yoga and dancing and just stretching all the time so now I work out six days a week an hour every time! I feel awesome. Keep going, guys!!!!
Love and hugs,
