Ht. 5'3", Start: 145 lb, Current: 124 lb, Goal: 115 lb - I havent posted on here in a few months and I'm not overweight anymore. I just wanna say that some of your encouraging words from a while ago really helped me. I've been so proud of myself because I've made goals to lose weight for years but I never actually thought I could do it. But this summer I did. Thank you and I just wanted to say that.

Hey everyone. You can do it. I told myself that I was going to lose weight for the right reasons. That which would make me happy. 2 months ago I STARTED 180, and NOW I AM 137. I have lost 43 pounds in 2 months!!!
That is like 22 pounds a month. I tried so many times before but it hardly ever worked.
***************READ ON I WILL TELL YOU HOW!!!*****************

In january i weighted 157 pounds but then my mom decided to go on weight watchers and i decided to go on with her because i wanted to be thinner. since then i have lost 27 pounds and now weigh 130 pounds I still want to lost another 5-10, but right now i am fairly happy with my weight. The trick to losing weight is just eating healthier foods and making good choices. Eat tons of fruits and veggies. Eat chicken and turkey instead of steak and ribs. Eat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. No, you dont have to give up high fat foods completely in fact you are supposed to eat something high fat once a week because it gives your metabolism a kick. You can also make better choices when eating out with friends or at parties. If I go out with my friends to Denny's, I just have a milkshake or a drink or just get a salad instead of getting pancakes and sausages or something like that. I initially went on a diet to be thinner, but now i realize that it is more important to be healthy than it is to be thin.

i stumbld upon my weight loss i had decided to exclude meat from my diet i became vegatarian saywat u will but their my beliefs and it seems geting braces on and giving up meat helped my braces prevented myfrom eating junk. I am not saying go out and get braces but trying to lose the food that you could do without and trashing it is helpful. Giving meat up helped controlmy over eating and it may not help u cuz we r alldiffrent and special but it's here to support you on your way to getting healthy!!!!!!

Ever since I was in 2nd grade I was overweight. When I got to 7th grade I realized that I was to big for my age and heigth. So I decided to go on the special k diet. Every day in the mornings I would eat a bowl of special k cereal with fresh cut up strawberries. When lunch came around I would eat one of the new special k meal bars, they come in double chocolate and peanut butter.I ate an apple with it also. I have to make sure I eat something healthy with the bars, because they are not enough food for a growing girl.At dinner I would eat a heathy meal like salad and a sandwich and eat a tiny dessert with it. I would drink milk and water with my meals.I weighed 152lbs and know I weigh 127lbs. So I am very happy.I want to be 120lbs but my mom is afraid I will go crazy with the diet so I am staying at 127lbs by exercising.

I have always struggled with my weight and i guess it was in my genes. My dad always says how big he was when he was young but when i look at old pictures of him i wanna cry. I really was huge. I am not proud to call myself an emotional eater but i know i am in one year after my best friend moved away i went from the 150's (even though i was already overweight) to over 190 at only like 5 2 i knew i needed to make a change so i thought you're 14 and you can barely run a 1/2 mile you need to make a change plus you really wanna get that hot body so i did it and since last september i have gotten down from 198 to 166 and i know that i have a long way to go but i know that all i have to say is wwasd (what would a skinny girl do) lol good luck
