Well 5 weeks and four days ago, I was at my all-time high weight: 184 lbs. My mind was on "temporay binge" mode during the holidays, so I bscially stuffed myself and had fun. I don't know why it crushed me that when I went on the scale it read 184. But then I realized something exrememly important: that's what my life used to be like!! Weight went in one direction only. I also relized that most healthy ADULTS didn't even weigh that much. That was it. I was disguisted at what I had become. I was time to get serious. Step one was basically cutting out all sugary drinks, and since then I have only had 4 glasses of soda, and not regular soda either. My face cleared up a whole lot. I had always been good w? yogurts and lowfat milk and stuff, but i neede to choos healthier snacks and eat more fruits an veggies. Once that was done, I added in exercise and used very good portion control, and no more section helpings at dinner. SO far I have lost 7.6 lbs and now I am 176.4 and still going. If I could do it, so can you. Believing is the key! :0)

I'm gonna tell you a little story with big results!!
In the 9th grade I weighed 250lbs I'm 5'3" so I really didn't have anyplace to hide it. I never had a boyfriend I DID NOT go swimming and I DID NOT wear SHORTS. I started watching what I ate got alittle obsessed and dropped 90lbs the wrong way by straving myself. I looked gret but I was always weak and light headed. I finally had a cheeseburger and fries and I swear I gained 10lbs that night. You see when you don't eat right and strave your body it holds on to things longer, Storing as fat. SO by the 11th grade I gained all that weight and more back so I was nearly 300lbs. I dieted the right way with friends and family eating smaller portions and lost 100lbs in a year. I'm 18 now and in college I weight a healthty 120lbs and I'm a size 4. I look great I wear anything i want and hey did i mention i met the perfect guy, that was there all along. My best friend MAtt, who were there with me all along. So what I'm saying is lose weight for the write reasons such as health..and do it the right way. LOVE YOU ALL JACKIE

Hey i started my diet only about 2 weeks ago. Ive been gettin gscared that i was going to have a heart attack or get diabetes or die early. I dont want that for myself, and i know im a good person, and people are just shallow so i decided i wanted to lose weight for the wrong reaons. To make other people happy. So far ive lost 7.5 lbs and i keep going, but not for them, for myself. i just want to be healthy. I drink as much water as i can, i steer clear of sodas and juices. I dont eat candy or junk food, i usually just eat alot of yogurt (for calcium because i dislike milk) and i eat alot of sandwhiches on wheat bread, and salads. i excersize daily at a gym. I know i just have to keep it up. you guys can do it! :D

i was really overwaight in 7th grade my grandma died and i just completly fell apart. i knew what i waighed wasnt right so i set a goal i told my mom i am going to lose waight before 8th grade i told friends next year i'm going to be way thinner so ya'll just wait for the waight to disapear. :) Over summer break i tried not to be at home so much so i didn't get bored and eat. so with doing Richard Simons (i know he's weird but hey he worked good) and i also joined a softball team. At the end of the summer i had lost 35 pounds. So girls or boys take the right choices by exercising and eating right don't starve yourselves or induce vomiting because it doesn't do u any good and you could die from it. GOOD LUCK AND DO THE RIGHT THINGS.!

I started out weighing about 225 but by following the Special K diet which is eating 2 bowls of cereal a day and by also eating 1 normal sized meal. I have lost approx. 15 pounds in about 4 weeks

From Rina, Age 16, female - 03/12/06 - IP#:  
Hey Y'all! I just wanted to post and say thank you to everyone who supported me in my long journey to lose weight, I've lost 170 pounds and I feel wonderful! I'm still in shock, it's so cool and weird at the same time. I can't believe I used to be 313 pounds, sometimes it's seems like it was just yesterday and other days it's seems like it was years ago. I've been working out and eating sensibly since June of 2004. I'm just so happy with my life. don't just sit around and feel sorry for yourself, get up and move!!! Be Happy! :-D

From Johnny, Age 18, male - 03/12/06 - IP#:  
Well I was 285 pounds when I began eating healthy and exercising regularly in september 2005. I now weigh 220 pounds right on for a total weight loss of 65 pounds. I must say if you stick to eating well everyday and exercise atleast 5 times a week it will really pay off in due time, you cant expect to see body change results in 1 month. I started to notice my belly and back toning up more and getting smaller after like 4 months of my diet.
Anyway good luck everyone, keep exercising, eating right and drink lots of water :p

From Beth, Age 14, female - 03/07/06 - IP#:  
Since the summer hols I have have had this gym mebership pad for by my lovley sister, but when i went to the gym all i wouild do is lift weights, becuase I'm quite strong. I stopped going when we went back top school and put on more weight!!
Sinse the new year i have been going to the gym weekly and trying my hardest to eat right, this keeps on slipping but it goes to show that even if you exercise and don't even neccesarily eat perfectly you can still loose weight, if like me you were totally in-active before! I've lost around 15 pounds so far, still need to lose about 50 but i'm on the right track

Hi everyone, My name is Laura and i am 14. When i decided to lose weight i was 5"6 and weighed 155 pounds and that was in december 2005 now its march first and i am at 138 for a total of 17 pounds and i am still going. I am almost at my goal of 130 but i am hopeping to make it to 120. I was so lucky to not have to use and dieting pills, laxitives or any of those myths. I tryed many diets and excersize programs but i never ate wright so what i started to do was to make sure i ate less that 1100 calories per day and ate healthy things, i knwo alot of people think the lower calories the less food you get to eat but thats not true if you eat things that are really low in calories you can eat more of them then eating one thing with lots of calories. Usually when i began i did the 20 minute windsor pilates excersize every day but not on the weekends to jump start my weight loss and... (view more)
