From Keylaigh, Age 18, female - 03/03/15 - IP#:  
Start: 402 lb    Today: 104 lb - Hey my name is Keylaigh, I'm 18 and I live in Florida. I'm originally from England but my family moved to the Keys because my dad's job placed him here so yeah. In England I was perfectly happy, normal weight etc. I mean I've always been insecure, but where I lived in England it rained most of the year so I could cover myself up with coats and other things. But Florida is opposite where I live; most of the time it is humid and sunny. I was so stressed out about starting a new life in Florida and making new friends that i gained a little tiny bit of weight. I'm converting kilos into pounds so measurements might not be accurate but yeah anyways, I gained a little bit of weight like 4 or 5 pounds. I then started school right after Christmas break, and I felt like I was a loser and had no friends. I also had a hard time focusing because my mind was so lost over missing my friends from back...

Start: Ht. 5'2", 140 lb ( BMI %tile: 89)    Today: Ht. 5'2.5", 117 lb (BMI %tile: 61) - I started to notice that I was gaining weight about 4 months ago. I decided I needed to lose it immediately. I started doing Focus T25, a workout that is only 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I loved that it was only 25 minutes a day, I was able to complete it daily. I also started drinking only water and eating 1,200 calories a day. I noticed the weight coming right off. I lose 5 pounds the first week! Then, after most of the weight was gone, I lost the last bit slowly over 1 month!

Start: Ht. 5'1", 145 lb ( BMI %tile: 96)    Today: Ht. 5'2.5", 115 lb (BMI %tile: 63) - Hi, I'm Katelin! I had an eating disorder called binge eating disorder where my brain told me to go eat all the time even if I wasn't hungry, so I got chubby and it really bothered me. I decided to go and get help and a therapist helped me stop binging. Then I just drank a lot of water and started running 2 miles everyday. Now I'm healthy and I'm happy!!!

Start: Ht. 5'11", 292.3 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 6'0", 240 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - Unlike most stories on here, I wasn't always an overweight kid. I did start gaining weight in 2nd-3rd grade, slowly packing on the pounds from stuffing my face whenever I could. By the time I was 12, I was 5'2 and weighed 150lbs. I just gave up and ate everything and anything I wanted, and my parents let it happen. At 15 I weighed myself and I was 300.2lbs. I freaked out and started eating healthier, but it only lasted for three weeks and I had only lost around 10lbs. I continued to eat basically crap for the next two years. My mom took me to a nutritionist at age 17 to get my allergy testing done and they weighed me, I hadn't seen a number that high in a while. The next day I went back to the gym to reinstate my membership, I started working out 2-3x a week, sometimes more, and eating a lot healthier than I used to! I've never been a red-meat lover so I just stuck... (view more)

Start: Ht. 5'7", 240 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'7", 160 lb (BMI %tile: 86) - Growing up I had always been overweight. My mom, who had been a bodybuilding competitor and fitness instructor, had always tried to help me to become healthier and lose my excess weight. Throughout my childhood, we visited different doctors and specialists to try to help me with my weight problem. My mom also encouraged me to join activities such as dance and cheerleading to help me stay active. In September of 2007 when I was in 4th grade my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, she had never been a smoker and had always been very healthy until this time in her life. Her health began to go downhill along with her energy because of chemo therapy and other treatments to try to help her. No matter how tired she was at the end of the day, I was her number one priority and she would always go on walks with me or ride bikes to try to keep me active daily. In April of 2008 she lost her... (view more)

Start: Ht. 160 cm, 73 kg ( BMI %tile: 95)    Today: Ht. 162.5 cm, 55 kg (BMI %tile: 51) - I LOST 40LBS IN FIVE MONTHS. IF I ACHIEVED THIS, YOU CAN TOO.
I've had problems with my weight all my life. I was always the 'big' kid in my friendship group. I got sick of it, of having low confidence, and I wanted to change. It took me a long time to start, but getting my prom dress and a boyfriend encouraged me to change. However, I was more concerned about my health than either of these things, so I started going swimming and walking my dogs with my mum during the summer break. I'd do it every single day - an hour of swimming, half an hour of dog walking. When school started again, I'd walk 4 miles a day - to and from school - and then bike ride for an hour, saving the dog walking for weekends. My stamina improved massively and I slimmed down a lot, toning my body because of the exercise. I had to cut out a lot of the bad food but as time went on, I... (view more)

Start: Ht. 5'6.5", 147 lb ( BMI %tile: 83)    Today: Ht. 5'6.5", 106 lb (BMI %tile: 7) - Hi there. I was once a small framed girl and no matter what I eat and how much I eat I won't get fatter. I used to join a sport club, exercising 4 times a week and four hours each. But things changed when I starrted mid-school. I stopped exercising but I still eat the way I used to be. My friends told me I became a little bit chubby but at first, I ignored them. Then about a year later, my mom did that too and I realized how I became too fat. I was 147lbs and 66.5 inches that time. My mom brought me to see a doctor and I started to work out again, also stop having junk food and those unhealty foods. At the moment, it wasn't easy. Sometimes I ate junk food when my mom isn't around but then I started to understand why I shouldn't eat junk food and why I should start eating healty food. After eight months dieting and exercising I already lost 40 lbs. Now I'm 107 lbs(underweight, but I do have big bones so I don't look underweight) and I feel a lot more healtier than I used to feel when I was 147 lbs!

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.
