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)

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.

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!

From Shayla, Age 16, female - 06/13/06 - IP#: I started jogging 1 mile every night its been 9 days and i've lost 8lbs. I did weigh 140 and now at 132 i'm 5'2" so i'm hoping to be down to 115-110 by the end of the summer!..good luck ya'll

I was always a chunky gal. When I went into high school as a freshmen I was 239 pounds, some would call me names and I never wore what other girls wore. My mom was smaller than me and she was over weight herself. I then got into a gym class and my teacher pushed me to work. I tried out for volleyball but didn’t make the team. I had a black ring around my neck for being almost diabetic I was determined to loose weight. I stopped drinking pop and exercised a little bit at a time. I couldn’t run for nothing... It was hard to run a lap around the track. Now I’m a senior of class 2007 and I am 148 lbs I play Volleyball and softball and I am healthy! Dieting isn’t what helps you loose weight. Eating right and Exercise can’t be called a diet! Its something you should do for the rest of your life. I started the end of my freshmen year and I will continue forever to eat healthy and...
