My long journey started with a new years resolution on Dec 22nd 2004, I made a bet with my best friend that I would get back in top notch shape, I used to weigh 145lbs size 10/11 pants. I started a diet for myself and a work out routine, at first I didn't have a clue of what kind of workout I would stick with for myself until I saw the informercial about the "ab revolutionizer" they claim u loose up to 2 dress or pant sizes in jus 10sessions, in reality they're called leg raises, so I thought hey I will give it a shot, but I didn't have the machine, so I did the 10sessions,and felt myself slowly shrinking, I did some hard cardio workout, I did 25min of leg raises, 20side kicks, 20knee kicks,and took up aerobic indian dancing did for 35min 7days a week per night. I began to feel the burn every night, but I told myself I could do this, so I kept on doing it, I would take breaks once in a... (view more)

I began at 190 pounds. I was obese and decided to do something. Now, one year later, I'm at 165 pounds and continuing to my goal of 140 pounds. All I did was ditch the average meal of half a pizza, chips, and soda and change it to some fruit, a sandwich, and some orange juice.

Hi ya it has taken me soo long to pluck up the courage to come on here to tell yall I DID IT. I finally got down from 13st 10lbs to 11st. It took like 5 2 six months but i got there. Anyway i want to tell yall the reason why i didnt come on to tell yall about my success so soon was because i was ashamed, yes i was. You all know how it feels to be big otherwise you wouldnt be on here right. well you know how when ure big some ignorent real skinny people look @ ya in disguss or if ya go to eat out in a restarant and people will watch ya eating and be muttering evil comments like no wonder she is that big you seen the amount she eats.

I did a lot of exercise, every day and only ate 2 to 3 meals a day.

From Annabelle, Age 20, female - 08/24/05 - IP#:  
I went from 172 to 122 by following a mainly vegetarian diet with lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole fancy coffee drinks, only some green tea, herbal teas and plenty of water. Pilates and walking helped a great deal. I removed the weight, I didn't "lose" it, as I don't plan on finding it again.

Hey! I was 168 about at the begning of august and after readinga bout all of these things I didn't feel good at all. I felt so depressed about me being fat, and I alot of people say I'm not, becuase I am tall. So I started to walk a mile everyday adn cut back on EVERYTHING. I even help clean the house. I feel great now! I weigh 155! which means I lost about 13 pounds! I swish to loose about 15 more pounds. I have my friends always asking me what I eat and what should I cut back and stuff. I can't wait to loose all of my fat! I don't plan to be skinny like a a twig I just wnat to be slim.
Here are some things I do:
1) Drink Green Tea Daily its a great boost of yoru metabolism
2) Partticipate in about everything! Get more exercise that you don't even know
3) Eat smaller portions of food, only until your full.
4) Walk about a 1-2 miles
5) Check your weight every Saturday(I found out that if you check everyday it won't help.)
6) Tell youself that if you do it... so and soo will happen^^

I love waking up every morning. The weight just keeps coming off like a miracle. I've tried for so many years and ALL I had to do was eat right and exersize. I've never had so much energy and been so active. I lost so much weight in just 2 weeks so far. I haven't worn a tank top since I was 10....I'm 20 now and feel the best in my life. It could get difficult though. A few days ago I binged and ate A LOT in 1 night but I made up for it by eating little the next day and then going back to normal the day after. I learned that it's OK to treat yourself, just don't feel guilty about it or it'll get worst. I still dream of the day I am skinny, but at least I feel good now and I know I can do it, and if I can, you can too. Lift weights and do pushups along with cardio and your body will burn the fat off in no time. One thing concerns me is all you teens out there, remember that you are still... (view more)

i was born 3 lbs as a baby so my parents fed me up quite a bit, i was normal wieght from when i was 2 to 9, but when i turned 10 my mum died and my dog was ran over so i started to comfort eat. i had nachos, pizza, cookies, ice cream, chocolate, mints, roast potatos and chips with every meal, and started to watch 7 or 8 hours of tv a day. But when i was 13my dad made me lose wieght, i was 500 lbs at 4 ft 11/ 5 ft. so i ate nothing but salad for a mounth, and lost only 4 lbs, so then i got really commited to it i started exercising at least 2 hours a day, BUT I DIDN'T BUILD UP THE WORKING LIKE YOU SHOULD, but it was a price worth paying. 2 and a bit years on a nd i feel great, i am great at school, the 1000m champ and am a healthy 165 lbs. i have no will power and i did and i think you should to.
