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

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.

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)

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!

Hey, you guys. My name is Colleen. For the past year and a half, I have been trying to lose my extra weight.
Here is my story.
All my life, I had been one of the chubby kids. I was always bigger and always self conscience. I always tried to pin it on someone else, but not too long ago, I realized they may have started me off to a bad start and gotten me used to bad habits, but I was the one continuing to conform to those habits.
I decided to lose the weight last summer when I was 12. I weighed 163 pounds, and was outright disgusted with the way I looked. At the end of the summer, I had lost 20 pounds and was at 143 pounds. I was so proud of myself. I had gone from a size 9 jeans to size five. I was wearing mediums, not larges and extra larges. I was still overweight, but I was that much closer.
But, nothing can be good forever in our lives, can it?

When I began trying to lose weight I was 186, and have no lost 31lbs. to be at 155. I am still working towards a goal of 130-145lbs though. 31lbs is a big accomplishment none the less. I have gradually increased intensity on my workouts. When I began I couldn't even run a full mile. Now I run 5 at a time. I eat so much more fruit and vegetables now. I have also picked up little tricks like no eating past dinner and finding a routine for meals.
