Well, I think I've lost another two pounds, I was on a pleatu for like 3 months and I tried on this super cute outfit with a belt, and it looks good!!! Good luck to all, and remember: everything (even sweets, soda, and fries) in MODERATION!!

Hey i guess it was about a week before my friends brithday party when i first stepped on the scale and saw the shocking number of 174lb. at the height of 5 feet i wore a size 15 or 17 in pants and a bmi of 32.7 . I knew i had 2 do something, my dad was overweight as a kid and later got diabetes, then lost some weight. Even though he changed his life around then he still died early at the age of 46.
So i lost 7lbs. the first week but then i gained 5lbs. after my friend's party. a couple of weeks later i noticed that i had lost a pound without trying and decided that i could do it. so far i've found that the hardest part of losing weight is holidays and vacations. so far i've lost around 30 lb. and my bmi is now 27.2. my goal is to be around 115lbs. by my birthday which is at the end of january!! good luck 2 everyone..

I haven't always been overweight, and as a matter of fact when I was little I loved to exercise, and I hated chocolate, as well as anything that was too sugary. My mother, who has always been on the heavy side, took maticulous care to keep me away from any and all junk food in the house and just natrually I loved to be hyper, play outside and just be a normal and plucky kid. The minute I hit school I began to gain belly weight, due to the overly processed, over-fattened, disgusting school food and candy that would be handed out by teachers. Luckily I was still very active when I was little, and I was just plain happy despite the couple extra pounds I carried. Everything changed when I was 8 years old and moved clear across America. Without any friends, and both my parents always at work I fell into a depression and used sugary foods, soda, and the television to comfort myself. Little... (view more)

When I was in 7th grade, I weighed 136. All my friends were like, I dont know, 100? I thought I was gonna get some disease like diabetes and die. Beacause of that, I started 2 diet, doing 3 hours of exercise everyday and consuming only 1500 calories at the most. In 3 months, i lost 30 pounds. This is a miracle. I dont feel ugly anymore.

All of my life I've never really noticed my weight until.... One weekend my bestfriend Martha(who wears a 0) and I went to a theme park, and I wanted to get on a ride and martha joined me. When I got on the ride the lady told me I couldn't ride because I was too heavy, she said that the bars & seatbealts wouldn't fit me!I jumped of the ride in humiliation and cried.What makes the story worse was their were two really cute boys behind us who were making jokes and laughing while I ran away. My friend Martha saw how hurt I was and jumped of the ride and ran after me. I cried for about 5 min. so martha asked me did I want to go home. I said yes! On the way home Martha saw how hurt I was and aked could she stay over I say sure(I was hoping she asked) she called her mom and told her she was staying the weekend.Martha then told me to get on the scale..It read 315lbs. I almost passed out! Then ... (view more)

I have reached my goal, and I am so proud of myself. It really was hard for me to resiste foods, my older sister who is 28 helped me the whole way. I came to live with her in December and I was 130lbs and only 4'11" I was a big ol 9 year old. My sister didn't want to see my feelings hurt anymore in school so we went over what I had been eatting when I lived with my mother and what was not healthy. Did you know hot pockets and corn dogs are bad for you? THEN Y DO THEY MAKE EM? GRRRR I was eatting about 6 hot pockets a day or 4 corn dogs a day becuase my mom was never home that much to cook. Well, my sister cooks and she never makes the same meal twice, we eat lots of greens and desert is only once a week on Saturdays. My sister says its not a right that kids have to get desert its a prevlige. It is always something good too. When I lived with my mom we would eat alot of fast... (view more)

From Emmie, Age 12, female - 06/16/06 - IP#:  
I knew I had a weight problem when I was ten and wearing size 16 in kids at Limited Too. So I lost a bunch of weight and now I'm age 12 wearing a size twelve in kids! I think you should be the same age as your clothing size... if you are shopping at kid-sized stores.
Also, if you are really tall, slim sizes are lifesavers because sometimes I'm too tall for a 12 at Abercrombie Kids but a 14 is too big around the waist and hip so I get a fourteen slim which is as long in length as a regular 14, but the fit is like a size 12.

From Isabella, Age 13, female - 06/14/06 - IP#:  
I had always been a girl with a larger frame than everyone else, because I'm built like my mother's side of the family. I always thought I was fat and would feel nervous and scared about letting other, especially older, people see me. When I'd pass super-thin eighteen-year-olds or cute boys, I felt so self-conscience. At age twelve my weight had crept up to 184 lbs. I will repeat that: 184 lbs. At age twelve. It hit me like a monsoon: not even some ADULTS weigh 184 lbs. I was overweight. And unhealthy. If I kept it up, how would I look as a young woman? Around that time my birthday was coming up, and I'd managed to slim down to about 178. I figured that I'd started the beginning of seventh grade at around 165. Now I am 174. Then I suffered a traumatic experience and got off my eating plan. I gained nothing but was introduced back to some of my old eating habits. Now I'm changed for good. I want to be 160 by the end of eighth grade and 130 before high school starts. Wish me luck!
