Start: Ht. 5'5", 161 lb ( BMI %tile: 92)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 136 lb (BMI %tile: 75) - I wrote here a few months ago, very depressed and still overweight. But now, things are much more different! Being overweight is one of the worst feelings in the world. After years of struggling with my weight, I finally reached breaking point and decided that I was going to change. I was sick of feeling ugly, I was sick of having low self esteem, and I was sick of wanting to avoid mirrors, thinking that I best not look in them. Now, I am 25lbs lighter and at a healthy weight. I learnt how to stop binge eating and instead deal with my emotional issues in a healthier, more beneficial way. I didn't go to a doctor, I didn't see a nutritionist, I didn't become super athletic. No, I began bike riding - anywhere and everywhere for an hour per day (up to 7 miles) - and walking to and from school (4 miles of walking per day in total.) I... (view more)

Start: Ht. 5'4", 175 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'8", 133 lb (BMI %tile: 83) - I reached my sucess story by stop drinking coke and not overeating. I gained 65 lbs from overeating. I thought if I could find something really good to eat it would make me feel better , but it just made me feel sick . I also limit my sugar intake. I encourage you to lose weight because when I lost weight I felt better about myself and I don't get pain on my back or knees.

Start: Ht. 5'2", 210 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'7", 116 lb (BMI %tile: 29) - I use to stay home eat sleep on phone everyday . School was hard . Boys made fun of me . Girls to . I wouldn't have made it without those who taunted me . I just kept thinking if not now then when it'll just get harder and I was doing it for my health . After I lost weight those boys who pushed me around called me names now wanna be my boyfriend . I use to like this boy who wouldn't notice until one day I gave him a letter saying how I felt about him. He called me ugly and fat and that he'll never like someone like me now he wishes he never said that . Girls you will change a lot physically and emotionally

Start: Ht. 142 cm, 42 kg ( BMI %tile: 94)    Today: Ht. 149 cm, 38 kg (BMI %tile: 47) - Everyday I ate for breakfast 1 slice of toast with light butter, 1 fruit, 1 actimel/yoghurt/milk and and additional boiled egg if I was hungry. I have done this for 2 years and I was bullied for being fat since I was 4. Oh and don't eat any desert. (If you NEED desert have a fruit salad with low fat yoghurt). My old one was a typo!!!  (Note: 149 cm, 38 kg is 4'11", 84 lb.)

Start: Ht. 5'1", 115 lb ( BMI %tile: 83)    Today: Ht. 5'1", 111 lb (BMI %tile: 78) - Hi!! I have always been a bit chubby-not fat or really "overweight" but bigger than most girls in my grade. I'm considered to be a healthy weight right now, but I'm near the top oh BMI charts and things like that. Plus I'm a bit fat (size 14-16 in kids or extra small in women's), so I want to keep losing.
Yes, I've only lost about four pounds but I'm working very hard to get in shape, not just to become skinny. And with these changes I am losing a little weight each day and I feel a lot better. What I've done is simply tried to cut everything unhealthy from my diet as a first step. I've never really enjoyed soda, so drinking only water wasn't a huge challenge. I'm avoiding candy, cake, popcorn, and things like that as much as I can. And if I do eat it, I don't take a lot. I don't have second servings of things... (view more)

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)
