Hello..im also an overweight teen..before I was 5'2 and 143 lbs but because of exercise and diet Im now 137 lbs and still trying to loose..I came to that stage that I don't know what to do, I also became bulimic but nothing happened it cause me near death. I am motivated by blubberbluster and Oprah Winfrey when I watched her show..There's nothing you can get if you don't work hard..you should work hard for it.. It's good to have a long-term proper diet, do not rush..and don't feel bad about yourself, just diet...slowly but surely. Just say "NO!!" to unhealthy food..Don't starve yourself you'll just binge later w/c is bad..eat small portions..if you snack just eat fruits and drink atleast 6 glasses of water a day. You can do it whoever you are who's reading this! Good Luck! Have a healthy diet!!

Like many others who have posted, I have always been struggling with my weight -- ever since I was a chubby little kid. At my heighest weight, 170lbs at about 5'3", I was completely inactive and hated everything and everyone, including myself. Life was miserable, and I couldn't stand it. I began making slow changes, and now, three years later, I am 120lbs at about 5'6". I run 3 miles 3xs a week, plus additional exercising. I am still trying to trim off 10lbs more, and I know that by the summer I will have reached my goal. I got to where I am by researching lots on the internet about nutrition and exercise; I ate less food, and healthier food -- lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I never drink regular soda, and occasionally I treat myself to sweets. I try to exercise every day.
Don't give up, whoever you are, not matter what your statistics are -- because I was at a... (view more)

When I first came on this site in July of 06 I was 190 lbs. I had the lowest self esteem possible. THen I started to read all kinds of things on here and it really inspired me. I went from a XXl size 14 jeans to a S size 3 jeans. I'm 123 pounds now. I stopped drinking sodas. I rearely eat junk. I exercise like NO other. And it finally paid off. It was hard. But if you bellieve in yourself you will do it.!! GOOD LUCK ♥

Hey guys, first off I'd like to say thanks, all your stories are great to read, they motivate me when I feel like I can't do it. Anyways, i was always overweight. since i was about 4-5 years old. Not huge, just chunky. When i was about 10 years old i was at my biggest, i weighed 160lbs. I was always taller than the other kids so i carried it well, but you could still tell i wasn't at a healthy weight for my age. So the years pressed on, always being the bigger one of my friends. I tried "diets" and not eating, but none of them worked cause I figured it would take too long, and I wouldn't be able to do it. Well i was wrong. About a week ago, I decided it was my time to do this and do it right. I just turned 18 and weighed 225. Therefore i gained about 15 pounds since this time last year. I didn't want to gain anymore so i took action. This week, i cut out all juice, junk food, pop etc.... (view more)

At the beginning of my freshman year in high school, I weighed 249 pounds. I hated getting dressed in the morning more than anything else, because it reminded me of how bad I was going to look the rest of the day. I wanted to fall asleep one night and just dissappear, and never have to face the world in my ill-fitting clothes. But I soon came to realize that just sulking and being consumed by my misery was doing nothing for me, so I made some changes in my lifestyle. I started walking to and from school, and trying to get in a half hour of walking on top of that, every day. I quit drinking soda pop (and haven't had any since then, and I don't miss it at all!!) and stopped going to fastfood places. I started eating more veggies and fruits, and replaced the all the starchy foods in my house with whole grain foods. Today, I weigh 198 pounds, and look pretty good in clothes. Clothes fit how ...
