Hey guys, I started at 5'4" and 144 lbs. Now, (4 months later) I'm 114. I lost 30 lbs in the last 4 months. I'm a vegetarian so that helped a little, but eating right is one of the most important things! For breakfast, (DON'T SKIP IT!), i ate Cheerios or Oatmeal or Eggs. Don't eat any sugary cereal or instant oatmeal. Look for healthy foods for meals. Exercise is also important. Try to do some sort of exercise at least 4 times a week (if you can do it every day thats even better). Sports or going to the gym, try to get a solid workout. It's definitely worth it! If you've already started don't give up!

I had never really thought of myself as fat. I never really was, but I was pretty chubby. I went a whole 11 years without even realizing how chubby I was. Then, we went on vacation to Disney World. As I looked at the vacation pictures, I almost cried. It was the first time I had took a good long look at myself. Did I start eating healthy at that moment? No. I continued to be unhealthy, and I ate tons of junk food. It was making me depressed. One summer, I decided I was going to get thin. I tried to only eat one meal a day, thinking I would be gorgeous by the time I went back to school. I ended up losing about 5 pounds, but gained it back (and more) when I started eating normally. This continued for about a year and a half. I would try to lose weight, but it never worked out. I ended up eating tons, then getting even more upset than I was before. I was at the breaking point. Then, I got... (view more)

What works for me In my fridge youll find sharp cheddar cheese spinach,MILK,dales sauce,8$bag of broccoli,bag of boneless chicken breast,eggs,canadian bacon,old tuna salad, frozen black berries,jar of presto....I switch it up but if you havent noticed I avoid carbs your body burns carbs before fat so i dont give it to many carbs to try to burn i keep it at about 40 carbs a day while dieting avoiding junk and sugars ..protein is your friend ..when i was bored I worked out when I thought about how bad I wanted to lose weight I worked out.
Id do squats,push ups sit up,lunges weight training and I kept at it when i would want to eat alot cereal was a big help Id make a huge bowl of raisen brancrunch and add sliced bananas to it hey it A bowl of oats..No junk cereal though i only eat when im hungry not over doing it and sometimes you think your hungry but you really just need protein shake or a glass of water. know your body type Im a mesomorph so i really dont struggle with my weight unless i eat ALOT OF junk over a long period of time like i did when i was little good luck people

I have finally lost 50 whole pounds in the past 7 months! I finally made some changes in my life; I had dealt with my eating disorder, but I really dealt with my weight issue afterwards. I joined crew, or rowing as my sport. I had done athletics before (all the time) and had become sedentary. But when I rejoined a sport (toughest thing to do after getting out of shape) I stuck with it, even though crew is the toughest sport known to mankind. It forces you to endure incredible pain every day, but I love my teammates and everyone's noticed how much weight I've lost. I would have lost more, but I've gained back all the muscle I had lost and more. I am looking great, I get compliments all the time... my jeans are loose. I've been eating better, too, and am still losing weight! I just felt like dropping by and letting all of you know that it can be done. I feel great. :D

From Hayley, Age 14, female - 01/30/10 - IP#:  
I hadn't really been that chubby until I got to be about 11. Then that's when I started overeating all the time. Instead of just eating one serving of something, I would eat 2 or 3. I never really thought anything of it, though. Then, a few months back, I was looking at pictures from my cousin's graduation, and I couldn't even believe that was me. I looked horrible! The pictures were so embarrassing because I really truly looked fat. From that day on, I vowed to get down to a healthy weight. I exercised (and still exercise) 5 days a week and ate healthier. Fast forward 4 1/2 months later, and here I am today, 25 pounds lighter! I feel so much better about myself now, and don't run from the camera anymore. I don't get winded from going up stairs anymore, either. To anyone who wants to lose weight, I say go for it! It's worth it.

From Sabrina, Age 13, female - 12/22/09 - IP#:  
I agree with what it says about how loosing weight and reaching the goal is difficult. I'm not going to tell you how easy it was to loose it, because it wasn't. Since December of 2007 I've been working to loose weight. I don't even remember what I started at. I went to a personal trainer, did my school's physical education class, and dieted and lost some, but it wasn't even close to my goal. I dieted on and off during all of 2008. Finally, in January of 2009 my family decided to compete to see who could loose the most weight. I found this to be a good way to loose some both because I'm naturally competitive and I had my family behind me. I started the competion at 220. We had agreed to do it until June, and once June rolled around had lost double what anyone else had at 25 pounds. I know this may not sound like a lot to some, but it was the first time I felt that good about myself since ... (view more)

From Heaven, Age 14, female - 12/16/09 - IP#:  
I was always labeled "The Fat Girl" in school and I was getting sick of it. I stopped alot of my boredom snacking, and I started to exercise more. I was 12 at that time, and I had weighed 133lb and increasing. Now, I'm 14 and now I weight around 120ish. I'm still working on losing weight, and my goal is around 100-110lb. I'm going to completely cut out junk food, exercise ALOT and be the size I want to be. I wont give up, because my mom never did, she always fought and never gave up. I'll make her proud. Even though she isn't with me today, I know she's watching over me and will help me with my challenge. I REFUSE to give up!
