I was 110 pounds when i was eleven, and i was 4'11. Now I am a healthy 92 pounds and i am 12 years old. I lost my weight by eating healthy, watching how MUCH i eat, and exercising. I do volleyball and yoga. I do yoga every other day, and volley ball twice a week.

The last time I checked, my weight was at 160lbs but after 3 weeks of continuous exercise (running for apprx.30 mins ++if you have an ipod touch/iphone i recommend getting the app Couch to 5k which preps you up in doing a whole 30 minute run++ & lifting dumbbells) I feel absolutely better and I definitely noticed the pounds dropping and my arms and legs being more toned. I have a week left to go and I promised to check on the first of September to see how much I actually lost. So basically, I intake about 1500 calories a day and exercise. But if your legs start to hurt, then I suggest taking a day off. Oh and always always stretch before and after running!

YES! For the first time in my life, my weight is now classified as "healthy"!! This, by all means, is not to say that I am fit, or happy staying just under the "overweight" line. I am 5'7 and at my heaviest, I was around 170 lbs. I am now down to 152! I still have a long way to go, I want to be 145 by the time I start college in September. If anyone is interested, I'd LOVE to be someone's motivation buddy! Please email me if you'd like to chat about how you're managing! There were a lot of things that helped me learn to control my eating and I still struggle with it everyday.

From SJ, Age 14, female - 07/30/10 - IP#:  
Hey everyone in these past 8 months i have lost 30 pounds!
I did it by doing a few things
1- i joined basketball which was right after school... when i ate the most. by doing basketball i had something to do and it was good excersise!
2- i cut out soda and put in water and milk what i mean by this is i used to drink 4 sodas a day and now i only drink one unless i have a sleepover and need to stay up late:)
3- i chewed orbit. lol ok so whenever i got hungry or wanted food i didn't need i would just chew gum. it actually helped!
4- i never ate unless i was REALLY hungry
ur stomach will not tell u wrong if ur hungry eat when ur not stop if u have a lot of food in front of u don't eat it all bcuz ur bored... eat until u r satisfied
and finally...
5- eat lots of fibers, whole grains, fruits and veggies all that good stuff!

Start: Ht. 5'9", 220 lb ( BMI %tile: 96)    Today: Ht. 5'9", 190 lb (BMI %tile: 91) - I used to come on this site whenever I was younger, and I never really did anything about losing weight. I was a huge emotional eater, and I still struggle with it sometimes.
Since January I've been watching what I put in my mouth, and I barely saw any results until June whenever I went out and bought some Jillian Michaels exercise/cardio DVD's, started walking 30 minutes every evening and eating a healthy 1,200 calorie diet (three 400 calorie meals). It's been since June first, when I weighed 210 pounds, and I've seen HUGE results! I've dropped three pants sizes, one shirt size, and I'm starting to see muscle definition!
I wish all of you the best of luck with reaching your weight loss goals, don't let the little things bring you down!

From Shelby, Age 15, female - 07/28/10 - IP#:  
I used to be a thin kid, but then in 4th grade I started to eat a lot! My family ate fast-food almost 3-4 times a week and me being 10 didn't help cuz I definitely didn't know it was bad for me. So by the time I was in 5th grade I was almost classified as obese. My doctor eventually told my mom that she needed to feed me better and feed me less in general or else my weight could make me sick. Over the corse of the next 3 years I gradually lost weight, but it wasn't much. I had managed to slim down a good bit by 8th grade, but I still looked a little heavy. I never really thought about it till I overheard one of my guy friends telling someone that he thought I looked bad cuz of my weight. That night I looked at a picture of myself and cried. I never realized how bad it was =( from then on I tried everything to lose weight, but with no success. Finally after I started high school I played ... (view more)

From Lauren, Age 16, female - 07/22/10 - IP#:  
At the end of middle school, I was 220 pounds. I tried everything - weight watchers, south beach, atkins - I was even on Nutrisystem at 11! It was a mess. I had a really hard time in middle school.
However, the summer after 8th grade, I went to a camp for overweight teens. This camp was probably the hardest thing I've ever done in my life so far - and the most worthwhile. The camp taught us to limit fat, add exercise, and journal. I lost 20 pounds during my 4-weeks there.
When I came home, I expected a "Biggest Loser" fanfare. I quickly realized, however, that weight is an awkward subject to anyone who doesn't have to deal with it.
Anyway, with continuing my eating habits, I lost most of the weight - down to 150 pounds. I wasn't finished though, and was still considered "overweight". I was missing exercise! With help of a gym membership (That I've had since I... (view more)

woah. I'm on my LAST TEN POUNDS!!! i cant believe it!!! So basically, in the last 3 years i've lost a total of 70 pounds... what!? I remember being 225 thinking i'd be fat and miserable forever. but now i can go shopping and buy whatever i want pretty much. still a bit more to go though! just goes to show you you CAN do it, i was and still am soo lazy, its just a matter of training yourself not to eat out of boredom or just for fun. eat because you're hungry and to survive. good luck guys!

From Gianna, Age 13, female - 06/23/10 - IP#:  
Ever since I was five, I started eating a lot, and by age seven I could eat a whole big mac. My parents divorced and my step dad was never supportive and he always brought me junk food from fast food restaurants. So I went to a sports camp in California. Which was far away from my home in Kansas. But I was nine years old and I weighed 107 pounds! So I went to the camp with my best friend for two months. We were both overweight so we understood eachother.
We both ate fruit for vitamins and assorted nuts for protein.
She weighed a little less than me because she was 104 pounds.
We had so much fun!!! We went bicycle riding in the morning, then everyday after a healthy lunch, we had a race. One time, I won!!! So I got a free soccerball! Then, after the race, we got to choose which sport we wanted to do! Me and my best friend, Kaitee, liked to go swimming or sometimes play... (view more)

Trust me, it was not easy. I was over weight for about 6 years. I am 5'5 and currently 122lbs. My Highest was 160lbs and my lowest ever was 100lbs. I slowly started to understand my dietary needs. I never kept a food log and I never counted calories (well only a little from force of habit). But I tried to think about what I was eating and why I was eating it before I put it in my mouth. I consumed loads of water and never ate at fast-food places (I know too much about their food to be turned off for life!). As for exercise, I just walk around a lot (at least 2-1 mile a day). Stay away from over processed foods for a good month or two when your slowly working yourself into your new diet. Never EVER eat in front of a... (view more)
