I was usually rather a chubby girl, and when i turned 15 i new i had to do something about my weight. I use to get really tired easily, and i wasn't very fit. I talked to my mum about it and we decided we were going to cut all the junk out of my life and become a healthy eater. It was really hard but my friends supported me and i lost an amazing 3 stone and 2 pounds. I felt so much better when i lost most of my fat, and my family say i have made a difference. I just want to say that if you believe in it, you can achieve it!  (Note: 1 stone = 14 pounds).

I am 13 and I used to way 180 pounds..
i was always told to exercise and i never had the energy to do so.
So i started eating vegitables and fruit and saled and it gave me energy to exercise. every moring i ran a mile and after school i ran a mile. eventually i lost 40 pounds. now i look and feel like i never had before.

I lost 60 pounds, and went from a pants size of 40 to a size 30. When I was 16, I weighed 200 pounds and I hated the way I looked, so I began eating small, healthier meals and the weight came off, gradually. I skip breakfast and lunch, and usually eat two small meals in the mid/late afternoon and evening. To be honest, it's been easy to maintain my weight, because I've reached a point where eating little is just a part of my life and I can ignore cravings.

I'm a rising junior in high school now; since middle school, I've always been aware of the fact that I have a weight problem. My doctor never got on my case because, although my weight was in the 99th percentile for my age, so was my height. Whenever my mother or I tried to bring it up, he offered no real advice. Whenever I made comments about "being fat," friends and family always shrugged it off and told me I wasn't fat or just a little "chubby." Still, though, I knew I had to do something when I began getting stretchmarks (by putting on so much weight at once) and other health problems caused by obesity. I made on-and-off attempts to drop some pounds but could never stick with it. While I still don't feel 110% committed to an organized weight loss plan, I'm probably at my strongest in my attempt to lose weight. In early 2005, I was at my peek weight - almost 240 pounds (I'm 6 foot 1... (view more)

I used to weigh 182 pound in about february. then i started cutting down on fatty foods and eating only 3 healthy meals a day. i excersized and worked out for a total of 2 hours a day using the tread mill, bike, and doing scrunches. i now weight 125 pounds. it took me about 5 months. its possible, so never doubt yourself.

Hey guys i used to be 5'4 and 145 lbs. Unlike most people, my motivation to loose weight came from my brother, everytime we would go swimming he would laugh at me and tease me cuz i was overweight. I put up with it to his face but then i went to my room and i would start crying cuz i would see the bodies of all the famous people on t.v and all my friends that were really slim. I finaly stoped feeling sorry for my self and decided to do something about it. I went on the special k diet, eating it for two meals a day, and then had salad and chicken for a third meal. i also did 30 minutes of Taebo (it really works!) and started walking my dog on the beach with my mom twice a day for fourty five minutes a day. Right now I am 5'5 and 142 lbs. You might not think thats much of a sucess story, but almost all the fat in my body got turned in to musle. my legs stoped rubbing together and i... (view more)

Hey, I'm 13 and I have lost about 20 pounds. I was 160 and now 140. I still want to lose another 20 pounds but getting there. All I did was cut out all the junk food, ate healthy, went for a walk/bike ride every day twice a day, and drank a lot more water and a lot less pop. You can do this too. It is so easy and you will be happy with the results!

BY around March I decided to eat less and not eat late and also try harder in P E and also drank 8 glasses of water a day. my weight then was 138. The first month in a half I lost 5 pounds I felt happy because I was down to 133.(By the way I am only 5'3) Then in late May I started exericising everyday,ate less,didn't eat late,and also drank 8 glasses of water a day.I am know down to 125. I am hoping to lose 6 pounds before school starts. I hope everyone has great results with their weight loss.

From Emily, Age 17, female - 07/18/05 - IP#:  
Hi my name is Emily. When i was younger, i was very obese. The sad part was that i was oblivious to it because i had a great family and miraculously, my peers accepted me. I loved to eat, especially high calorie foods like cookies and cakes and icecream afterschool. I remember going to the doctor when i was 11 and him explaining to me and my mother that i had gained 30 pounds in one year. I thought nothing of it, but my mom was slightly concerned. I didn't understand that i was different from the tiny, pre-puberty bodies of most of my classmates. I mean, they treated me kindly. It wasn't until the 6th grade, the time of first boy friends. Most of the girls in my class were going out with someone every week. But everytime i asked a boy, be would refuse, causing a sudden rush of tears to stream down my pudgy face. I didn't understand. Soon, i was too big to wear the clothes that everyone... (view more)

I used to have a eating disorder (bulemia.) I had a goal of gaining 20 lbs. And I did but then i kept eating and became OVERWEIGHT!! I was very depressed and wanted to be buliemian again to loose weight. But then I decided to eat right and try to loose weight the RIGHT way. And I did now i weigh 110 lbs. which my doctor says is great! I simply ate less and excersised more. I would ride my bike and take staris instead of the elavator at the mall it was those LITTLE things that lead to so MUCH weight loss. And now i am happy with my body and am entered in a swim -suit pageant!! yay! :-D
