ok look losing weight isnt as hard as u think i lost 30 pounds i went from 155 to 130 i look okay. all u really have to do is walk and eat 3 meals a day no snack!!! i didnt plan to lose weight i just made new friends and we walked alot around parks talking and we played sports also. u can do any easy sport its just somethin to do instead of eating but then when u lose that weight and school starts man u gain some back like i did im now 140 so when u lose all that weight and then for some reason have no time to walk dont gain back the weight its very frustrating. and trust me when ur losing weight time goes by fast so dont try to lose 50 in 5. good luck to u all

I was at my friends house the other day and I was wearing these old shorts that were small so my fat was hanging out(( they were a size 12 and im really a size 18)) and then i was sitting on her chair and i accidently broke it. Then the button on my jeans popped. i was so embarassed. So my friends thin she's 5'4 and 100 pounds. She weighed me on her scale and it read 190 at my top. i was sooo shocked. I was never good at runnning. So she asked me what do you want to improve on first so i said running. so now me and my friend run everyday for a half hour. but we had to stop every 5 minutes for me.but thats okay. then we improved on my eating habits. no more hershey's or anything. then we bike ride 3 times a week. then we do 100 situps and 50 pushups. im so glad my friend is helping me train. so far i lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks. Im feeling healthier already.

Well, since February I went from 184lbs to 169.8 lbs! Thi is the first time I was able to loose a lot of weight and keep it off in my life! If i loose that last 0.8lbs I'll have lost 15lbs! I was a size 16 in jeans/pants before...now i can manage a size 14/12! I hope to become a size 6 or 8 ultimatly...but I'm very proud of myself. I don't calories or carbs or anything like that, I just healhtier food when i go out, drink mroe water, limit soda and sugary sweets. I have a few squares of dark chocolate on the weekend instead of junky cookies and cake...for me al ittle indulgence is the real stuff or nothing! I now practically hate fast food, salty food, sugary food, greasy or porcessed food. YUCK! Eat organic things you can feel good about. I hope tobe about 160 by Christmas. I'll keep you posted! :0)

When i first found this website I was in Japan last year and you know how everyone there is like size minus minus 0.... well because i wasnt a minus minus zero i got called fat and i really wasnt, but i wasnt skinny either. My boyfriend even broke up with me...and said if i was skinneir he would like me better... I absolutly did not consider a faf diet.. I have lost major amounts of weight in the past and i know How my body can lose weight so i cnaged a few things. I dont usually drink juice or anything so i made sure i just drank water or green tea. I tryed not to snack to much and did an hour of excersise a day, 30 minutes of tae bo and 20 of windser pilates. I ate anything i wanted just tryed to stay healthy and if i wanted icecream i could just not like 10.. haha. For me a few changes in my lifestyle really worked! It was hard trying to do excersise everyday but instead of thinking... (view more)

I lost 30lbs in a month. All I did was eat healthy, balanced meals and daily exercise. I highly don't recommend fad diets (i.e. atkins, south beach, etc.) I basically made sure I received the proper amount of various vitamins, proteins, calcium, minerals etc. that are included within the food selected for my consumption. I do HIGHLY recommend speaking to a nutritionist or doctor before engaging in serious weight loss endeavors. I did. I may have lost too much weight in such a short period of time, but I am now attempting to lose weight in a more reasonable manner, do ensure long term results. NOT a quick fix.

Hey Everyone, I just thought i'd share with you some of my experience about being overweight. I was overweight from the time I was 3 or 4 til 14. My mom used to enable me by making fattening foods such as cookies, chinese and any kind of dessert. Overtime it stuck to me, literally, I ended up weighing 313 pounds when I was 14, now I'm 16 and 130 pounds, I'm so happy. I didn't have surgery, no special diet, no pills... I learned to exersise and eat moderately. If you want a cookie or a little ice cream, have some! just don't sit there and eat 5 cookies or a pint of ice cream, it's all just common sense! remember, it's not what you eat, it's how much you eat that counts!

Well guys, my name is Caitlyne, I'm 15 years old and I first joined this site on July 16th. On july 16th I weighed 186.5 lbs at 5'6. Since then I've managed to get down to 176. So in 2.5 weeks I lost 11.5 lbs. How, you wonder? Eating 1250-1450 calories a day and doing a 5.5 mile bike ride along the waterside every 2nd day. My weightloss is starting to slow down a little bit so I'm going to start biking a little further evertime this happens... Good luck to all of you, you Can DO IT!
