I lost weight recently by getting rid of all food that is instant. I had a problem with binging and everytime I felt out of control I'd grab anything right away,so now without anything quick, by having to wait for the food to cook, it made me calm down from my feeling out of control and eat normally. I'm going to continue like this for a while and then I'll start to work on my behavior and see if I can be around food and not binge on impulse anymore. I feel very proud of myself lately. I feel like a normal person who eats regular meals when I used to be someone to stick my hand in a cereal box and without realizing it I'd finish the whole thing!

I remember i was in 7th grade and i was 5'2 about 145-150.. I really wanted to lose weight.. and I was not going to overnight camp for the first time and i was really upset about it.. so I decided to get motivated and go on a diet. I didn't eat the healthiest which was surprising considering i lost a lot. I basically ate all carbs.. but i trained hard.. I worked out twice a day for about 30-40 minutes. I played basketball for about 1-2 hrs a day.. then went biking for a good hour or so. and this was almost everyday.. when it was late august i weighed 114. It was incredible.. but i am 16 now and i am dieting again.. not that I need it. but I weigh 130-132 now.. I want to get down to 120-125.. I do have abs I can see them when i make a muscle.. I am aiming to get the V (which girls go crazy over). Just eat a lot of veges and lowfat.. meat.. carbs are okay. But eat atleast 1200 calories a ... (view more)

Hey! I was always over weight since I was young. When I was 17, I was 5'2 and 172 pounds. I began eating smaller portions and lots of fruit along with doing little things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Now I weigh 132 pounds!

From Christina, Age 13, female - 12/16/05 - IP#: 65.101.179.xxx  
I finally reached my goal! I'm 155 pounds! I started at my highest being 190 pounds at the age of eleven. My belly has gone from being 40 inches to 35-36, and my hips went from 42 to 39. My body fat percentage lowered nearly 20%, from close to 40% to 25%! I'm still overweight, but now I can start the real toning.

I weighed 230 pounds before and was 5'8. My best friend and I started going to the gym together and dieting. I'm finally 180 pounds!

From Sam, Age 17, female - 12/04/05 - IP#: 24.54.33.xxx  
My weight yo-yoed all last year, but over the summer i stopped focusing on a number, but rather on what i ate. I made sure i ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and cut out snack foods and replaced them with fruit. I got hooked on fruit and even ate it for breakfast. I succeeded in losing 10 pounds and have only another 10 to go.

In the 5th grade I was a heavy kid. I weighed 230 pounds and was 5'6. I got picked on a lot and never had a boyfriend or anyone who really seemed to be my true friend for who I was. Then a few years later I decided to take action. In the 7th grade still being about 230 pounds I wanted to change my life for the better and lose weight. So I started to diet the right away. I chose to eat fruit or cereal for breakfast instead of poptarts, salads for lunch instead of pizza and chicken for dinner instead of pasta. I totally cut sweets out of my diet for the better (although to this day I still cheat and have a little something,but who doesn't as long as you don't over do it, it's ok). In the first 4 months I had lost a good 25 - 30 pounds just by changing the way I ate. Now in the 8th grade I'm still dieting but I'm down a total of 55 pounds. I weigh 170 pounds and I'm 5'8 inches tall. I work ... (view more)

Hi! I started out at 217 pounds a year ago and lost 55 pounds so now I weigh 160 pounds and feel better than I ever have. I have also lost over 8% body fat. I would like to lose 25-30 more pounds, but regardless I'm still proud of what I have accomplished. I have permanently changed my lifestyle to include healthy eating and exercise everyday. I wish everyone the best who is starting a new lifestyle and want to tell everyone that you can do it. One thing I would suggest is printing out a calendar every month and track not only your exercise but also the progess you've made in losing pounds and inches. Whenever you need a boost, just look at that and it should help you to continue. Good luck!

Hey! 2 years ago when i was in the 7th grade- i went from about 184lbs to 160lbs by goin on the atkins diet (NOT THE WAY TO GO)I started it on nov2 and stuck to it till about feb. I don't suggest goin on a "Diet" AT ALL because you are killing yourself emotionally and you miss out on all the "fun".I think exercising and watching wat u eat is the only way to go. I started Thanksgiving nite, and i've been riding our exersize bike for an hr everynite- i haven't weighted myself yet (kinda scared :) but i feel more in shape and better bout myself- And when u r tempted to eat something like pie or something fatening, just think of how much work it'll take to burn it- its not worth eating it! its all in ur head- stop look'n at it and just walk away! (thats what i do) pick someone in your family or friends that you care a lot bout and say ur gunna loose weight for them AND 4YOURSELF- if u... (view more)
