Hey everybody! I was overweight. I mean really overweigh. I was 9 years old and I weighed 297 pounds. That was what made me so depressed. I joined a fat camp and a weight loss club and now I weigh 110 pounds it took me a while (3 years) but I am Proud of myself because I achieved my goal. Now I am slim and people actually talk to me so I guess image really does matter. If you want to lose weight talk to your parents.

Hi, everyone! I am 18 and have always been overweight. For a long time it didn't bother me at all...honestly. I had a ton of friends and always had fun in and out of school (I didn't have a boyfriend...but we won't go there :). My turning point came when I was 15 and actually looked at the scale at the doctor's office. 227 pounds. That did it. I was instantly motivated. I cut back on snacking. I still ate the same amount for meals (breakfast, cereal and a bannana, lunch, at school, a sandwich, cookie, milk, and fries, dinner, two helpings of whatever was served), but just didn't snack as much and ended up getting down to 190 in about 3 months. I wanted to lose more, but once school started again, it was hard to stay motivated. I maintained my weight, but I didn't lose. The following summer, I tried cutting back on portions (following serving sizes for cereal, cutting out the... (view more)

Hey Everyone! I just wanted to thank you for all the support you've given me! I've lost 99 pounds as of today! one more pound to go. If I can loose weight anyone can. It's taken me almost a year on the dot, but it's so worth it in the long run! don't give up and remember to stick to it. Even if you think you want that bowl of Ice Cream or those couple of cookies, wait a little bit and see if the craving goes away, it really worked for me.

Hello, I am a 23 year old female and I have always been overweight. My mother was abused as a child and made a promise to God that her children would not have to go through what she did.
SO, food was LOVE. I was always the smallest in my family, and ate very slowly. Until about 5th grade when we moved to a different house on a main street and were not able to go outside and play. This is when the weight came on. Mom would make this HUGH meals, and we, my brother and sister would eat away, and ask for seconds.
We all grew large. I however grew above everyone else. I am now 23 and 368 lbs. It hurts just to write that down. I am looked through by everyone. No one see's me. It is such a horrible feeling to be denied things because I am overweight. It kills me everyday. I was doing good, lost 30 lbs in 30 days, going to the gym for almost 1-2 hours 5 days a week. and then I... (view more)

hey!i wanted to thank everyone on this site for helping me to lose weight and to beleive in myself. i was overweight about 1 year ago. even though it took a long time,i pushed the weight off with the encouragement of my family and the help of this site especially. i always tried my best to exercise daily and to eat right. after you start to eat healthy for a while, it's not even that hard to stay away from the bad foods.i have lost about 20 pounds, and even though it doesn't really seem to be that much, i grew taller over the past year so i look very different.i feel great!remember, you can do anything you want to if you really try! :)

When I was younger i was always thin,until around 5th grade. then when i was in 8th grade i reached 162lbs and was 5'2. now that i'm in 11th grade i'm 5'4 and 120lbs. I lost weight by replacing ice cream with either frozen yogurt or regular yogurt, and by first drinking diet soda then about a month later i dropped the soda all together and had water instead. i walked everyday for 30 minutes and then started to run. if i was hungry i would drink a glass of water and in 10 minutes if i was still hungry i would have fruit. i learned that at bday parties its OK to have cake, just eat like a 1/2 of a piece and dont have seconds. and on halloween i divided my candy. i kept about 1/4 of it for me and then gave the rest to my sister and two brothers to share. and i would tell myself that i could only have 1 piece a day. my siblings were awesome supporters. my brother shawn surfs and my brother...

Back in Jan.I used to weigh 157.I'm a athlete so i need to lose some pounds.Im a athlete in basketball and that involves alot of running.So i just went to the near by basketball court and pratice for an hour or so and then increased my pratice time.And at the same time i decided to lift weights to help me stay even more fit.By mid March I lost 22 pounds and weigh 135,by trying harder each day to acheive my goal one day at a time.And still i continue my workout by eating really healthy,exercising and working hard.
And remember no matter how old you are or how much you wiegh, you can still acheive as much as the next person and look as good as the next person if not better.
