Hey I used to be 207 pounds but now I'm down to 159. For years I have been failing at every 'diet' I tried. But than I just relized it's a matter of not sitting in front of the tv and computer all day and eating junk food. You just have to start eating right and excercise as much as you can get yourself too. One thing that I found helped was if I was having a craving and was ready to jump for the doritos. I would immediatlly go down to the kitchen and grab some fruit. Because if I just sat there I would keep thinking about the craving and eventually just give in, thats how I always failed my 'dieting.' So just grab something healthy to eat so you don't do something dumb and dive for the doritos. As far as excercise goes, I would try to do as much as I could bring myself too. If your feeling unmotivated just think of all the times people called you fat, or you didn't want to go somewhere ... (view more)

Hi my name is derrick, and I successfully reached my goal of 170, from 190, in about 1 month and 4 weeks. Basically throught the summer. It was hard, and it took lots of discipline. 1 thing is that you have to eat, at leat 3 meals a day. If you dont eat, you dont lose. How ever much you weigh now, ad a zero on the end, and thats how many calories you need to eat to lose weight, eat less if you want to lose more. For exercise i used teh game dance dance revolution, which kept a track of all teh calories i burned.I ate only turkey sandwiches with one peice of bread 90 caloriesandi drank diet drinksand i splurged once a month lol.

Well.. my goal is like 129.. but I actually started at about 158-160.. I think it says I started at like 148, but I was about 160 when I actually started. Anyways, now I'm 135!! :D I just ate better and kept myself busy and also exercised by walking and stuff. So.. that's about 25 pounds gone for me :)

Alright I am 15 years old I stand at 5'4" and I use to weigh 174 lbs. I never looked that big but being big boned and all put on all of that weight. Anyway, I felt really bad and self-conscious about myself. So I decided to start on the atkins diet, you know the non-carb or low carb diet. Anyway, I ate just no carb food, like eggs,cheese,all the meat i wanted and lots of water, water is essential. I also did like 20 sit ups,leg lifts,arm lifts,and I ran up my outside stairs like twice a day 10 times. The magic part is that I lost 20 pounds in 4 weeks and thats alot of weight loss in just a month. I mean the 20 lbs. that I had loss made me look like a nice and slim person, for my ideal weight anyway. But no for real I looked really nice. The best thing about this diet is that you can have all of the meat,cheese,eggs and other non-carb things you want and not worry about gaining a pound... (view more)

HI, my name is Demetira and I am a sophmore. My life during elementary and middle school was hard because I was fat. Boys would over look me and others would make hurtful comments. After awhile, I began to grow taller. This was a plus. I took a gym class where I ran alot. I began to walk the roads and ride my bike more. Water helped alot. Instead of changing my diet completely, I found it to be helpful just by cutting porportions down. I was up to a 13/14 and now I wear a 9 in pants and a 7/8 in dress! And it feels good! Hopefully I can one day get my stomach flat completely.
