Start: Ht. 5'7", 180 lb ( BMI: 28) Today: Ht. 5'7", 120 lb (BMI: 19) - Just an update - finally hit my goal weight! Calorie counting apps to stay aware of what all I was eating, and at least 30 minutes of cardio a day! My usual choice was the elliptical, but sometimes to switch it up, I'd dance or go for a long walk if the weather was nice. Plus, in the evenings with my family, I'd do pushups, stretches, lift little hand weights and stuff like that during the commercial breaks of whatever we were watching. Keep pushing, guys, it's totally doable!!

Start: Ht. 5'6", 168 lb ( BMI %tile: 95) Today: Ht. 5'10", 133 lb (BMI %tile: 23) - In Grade 10, I decided to make a change. I could not keep up with anybody, I weighed as much as my friends who were 6 foot 3, and i was only 5 foot 6. Also, my brother could eat whatever he wanted and weighed 55 lbs less than me. My gym class was awful, and i knew i had to prove the kids in there wrong. So, I lost 40 lbs and ended up at 128. I gained 23 of it back in the fall, but in the past 6 weeks i have lost 18 lbs. My goal is to get back under 130, and it will be done within the next month. I can now fit into 28 jeans, back from the 34 that I wore. If anyone needs help, message me, as i would love to help others who struggled like me.

Start: Ht. 5'4", 180 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'4", 145 lb (BMI %tile: 89) - For the first couple of months, I didn't completely change everything at once but I took baby steps! First I started by drinking more water. I bought a 24 oz cup with a lid from walmart and I just drank and drank and drank. Also every time I filled it up I squeezed a lemon into it to alkalize my blood stream (wash out any toxins or junk). I still ate normal food but I didn't eat as much. When I ate cereal I measured the serving sizes and did that with just about everything. I stopped going back for seconds and I stopped whenever I was content (not full). Eventually my mother and I started walking 5 miles a day. The way that I stayed motivated was by getting two of my friends to walk everyday with me after school and that kept me going. Once summer came, it became too hot to walk outside (I live in the South) and we had to by a gym membership. I started taking kick boxing... (view more)

I started my freshman year of high school weighing 480 pounds. It was very tough; I had to deal with teasing, bullying, and horrific harassment. The weight hindered me socially and academically; in fact, I was embarrassed to even attend school most of my freshman year. My grades were horrible and I had an extremely low self-esteem. I couldn’t take being that state anymore; it was too much on me mentally and physically. On certain days I didn’t feel like even living or that I even deserved to. People treated me like an outcast just because I was different from them. That hurt me so much inside; I hated how my life was. I decided to change my life at the end of my sophomore year. My freshman year the coach had approached me about playing but I didn’t want to the end of my sophomore year I approached the coach and said: I think it’s time I join the team.

Start: Ht. 5'10", 265 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'10", 134 lb (BMI %tile: 25) - I am 16 years old and about a year ago maybe a little less I was really overweight I weighed 265 lbs. Which wasn't no surprise compared to the way i eat always going to buffets and eating rolls of cookie dough and bags of chips all the time. Every year I would always tell myself that this was it no more being fat I am going to lose it and be healthy like other people but every year it always came back because every time I started it my family would always go out to eat and get junk food and i would fall for the temptation but about two weeks before Halloween I said that when ever New Years came I would no matter what I was going to lose it but as that day was progressing I thought to myself why wait all that time. Why not start now so I know that I will do it and not forget about it so the next day it started at first I did what most people do I cut out all red meat and all the... (view more)
