Heyyya Everyone :). Ive found a new way to help me cut down on what i eat and it helps me to eat only when im hungry. if you are thinkin' that you're hungry then think of a meal or a specific food that you really don't like ! then have a large glass of water and wait for like 20 minutes. If you're still hungry then you can have a healthy snack or a meal whatever suits you.

hi evryonee.. well when i was in year 6 (age 11-12) i was 159cm (5 ft. 3 in) and weighed 68,4kg (150.5 lb.).
i was overweight and not happy at all..
i was calle faty and evrything..
then soon i thought smart.. i cut out on junkfoods and ate much less and was aware of calories in foods and worked out 40mins everyday on the spin bike.
then one day i hit 60kg (132 lb.). i was so happy i started to cry. i had a break from diet and my weight crept up to 63kg (139 lb.)... this was in the begginning of year 7.
i felt fat and horrible. i had flabs and felt fat. then i decidedto get down to 55kg (121 lb.) which i didn't acheive until the beginning of 2009. i had many breaks along the way :L
losing weight.. how did i do it?
sounds simple.. but it isnt.
i ate very little and cut our on sugar and salts
and exericse up to 40mins a day...
i worked out simply at home. without any equipment or dvd'd..
just trained myself and lost weight. now i weigh 52kg (114.4 lb.) and stand at 163cm (5'5").

I've had a complete epiphany. I feel healthier than I've ever been before! I can't remember ever weighing less than 150 lb since middle school.....I feel renewed, yet still have a long way to go. My biggest weight was 172 two years ago and since then, I've given up the fast-food, fried food, and junk for good. I've become somewhat vegan and trust me, try not to eat beef and substitute it for chicken or even better, fish....you'll be surprised at how much you lose. I've also cut the dairy products (Yes, no more lovable cheese! And instead of regular milk I drink soy or rice milk) and added more fresh fruits and veggies to my meals. I feel more inspired than ever and will continue to lose the pounds so I can fufill my true aspirations of being a musician. I hope others can bring more positivity into their lives, and not be afraid to give up the junk food and try new healthier options that ... (view more)

I used to eat junk food all the time, I would get my dad to buy me a pack of donuts and I would eat them all in one night. This was when I was about 8. I didn't do any sport and began gaining weight. However, when you reach puberty all you think about is losing weight and having a barbie body. I have trained myself to adapt to the world, in other word, ignore all those people saying you have to have a certain inch waste and be a certain size. So now, I only have junk food once a week. Eat wholemeal food, like brown spaghetti, non-dairy butter and orange squash. Those little things make a big difference to your eating style which makes a big difference to your body. You have to understand that everyone is different and ignore all the nasty comments. Just think about the future and ignore the past. :)
I am still trying to lose around 10 pounds, then I will be average weight. I am going to keep on excersing and eating those healthy foods.

Hey everybody I lost 8 pounds so far! I started at 198. I have a fast metabolism so gaining weight isn't easy for me when I'm going to school and being more active but I gain at least 5-8 pounds during the summer when I visit California and don't do anything. When I was on the verge of 200 I started getting sick of my fat. I'm pretty tall so I don't look really really fat but still overweight. Anyways I've tried crash diets which I constantly failed because I got so hungry and then I would give. Then I went on blubberbusters and started reading these stories and they really inspired me. So far all I've done the first week is eat as healthy as I can by drinking lots of water and cutting portions I checked the weight scale and it read 190! I couldn't believe it but I did notice the changes a smaller face, no more lovehandles, and my legs are a little smaller. I can't wait to continue! Goodluck to everyone! I'll post when I loose more weight.

From elle, Age 14, female - 10/25/08 - IP#: 58.168.198.xxx
Dear anyone that struggles with their weight,
My name is Elle and just one year ago i decied to stop being in denial about my weight and change my life for the better. It was hard but looking back on all the hard times it was the best decision i have ever made and most likely will ever make in my life.
I never knew how big i was until i lost it all, the biggest shock came when my friend told me i used to be morbidley obese. The biggest girl in the entire school. I was so hurt, i knew i was big, but i had no idea. I don't know what made me finally decide to lose weight. I think it was a variety of things, there was no final click. I got sick of being looked at in disgust and not being able to fit into any fashionable clothes. I remember seeing myself in the mirror and not recognising myself. I had stretchmarks everywhere and a double chin. My thighs were so big that when i... (view more)
