I'm 5'2" and 7 months ago I weighed roughly 140. I never liked the way I looked so I decided to go on a diet. I cut calories dramatically by eating smaller portions and only drinking water (lots), tea, or coffee. Today I have surpassed my goal weight of 120 and am now a healthy 110. Dieting is hard at first, but you get used to it. Honestly, it's one of the easiest things I've ever done. What people need to realize is that losing weight takes time and dedication. Don't expect to drop 10 pounds in a week, but expect to drop more like a pound or two. STICK WITH IT and the hard work will pay off.

When i vist friends, parties, barbeques and other places where junk and unhealthy choices are avaibale, I'm usually faced with the descidon to eat or well, not to eat. Some say only have just a slice of that cake, or only have one piece of pizza, but my problem is that if i have that one slice of cake, next thing i know im having another one, and another one and yet another one. If your like me and feel that once you've had the junk food you might as well have more- lsiten to this. There are two types of feelings when it comes to food- craving the food and then the inital guilt that comes after overindulging. Now both feelings are uncomfotable and hard to deal with, but you have to think about which one is more positive, obvisouly the craving. I learned that if I just stay away from the junk food completely, it won't put me on the track to the non stop junk eating road, and that I can... (view more)

I havent weighed myslelf in a while. I decded that I would rather see the results after a few weeks rather than every other day. SO basically I have been going on an hou walk/jog everyday along with a 25 minute abdominal video along with a 45 minute upper and lower body weight video. (both are from the firm) I decided to go without red meat and no freid foods for a while. I am excited to see what the scale says in the next few weeks! By the way I went from a size 13 to a size 9 :).

Hey, first off i wanna say im really happy this page went up because it inspired me even more and gave me lots of tips! Well i started a diet about a week and a half ago and i have lost 4 pounds so far. All i did was eat the SPECIAL K bars for breakfast and have some YOPLAIT YOGURT. Then i got my mom to grill pineapples and zuccini with whatever else she made. I started to go on a 1500 calorie diet and it really works! I exercise 1 hour a day by riding a bike and doing sit-ups. I use to weigh 195 lbs but i am now 191 lbs and still going! I am 5' 6" and i want to get to my goal of 140 by the end of the year in time for social. I hope everyone else does get to their goal while dieting and if i can do this much already, u can too! Good Luck!!!

Hey. Since i was about 9 years old i was incredibly obese when i was almost 15 i weighed 260 pounds. Eventually I got up to 300lbs. I never was teased. Lucky for me i have the greatest friends and go to teh best school so i never was bugged about my weight. That was a problem for me though because i never really got any motivation because i thought people accepted me for me. I even had a boyfriend. (so girls looks arent what matters if the guys right he will take u for who you are. I have been dating him for2 years now. ) anyways one day my mom got really mad with me and said somethings that no mother should have but it did change my life. She called me some nasty names and said any hope in marriage for me can be forgotten so at first i was depressed but then i turned tht into extreme anger and motivation. I got a pass to the gym walked everyday for 30 minutes ate no junk food. My... (view more)

My family had a weight loss contest that lasted from February 18 to May 21, and the prize was $300 for the winning woman, and winning man. My Mom and I ended up in a tie, we both lost 20 pounds! She went from 180 to 160, and I went from 169 to 149.

I have some time before I go to work, so I decided I'd tell you about my past habits before I met some helpful people along the way. I used to eat a small, unhealthy breakfast consisting of white bread and sweets. Then, I 'd pig out for lunch and have 2 or more pieces of cake for dessert. Then, half an hour before dinner, I'd eat 7 or 8 cookies hoping I'd spoil my appetite so I don't have to eat so much. Well, in reality, the cookies are higher in calorie than dinner itself. It didn't work, of course, and I ate a huge dinner and didn't stop until my stomach hurt. I felt like crap afterward, so I thought, "well since I screwed up today, I might as well eat more". So before bedtime EVERY NIGHT, I'd eat several donuts or half a box of Pot of Gold chocolates or a peanut butter sandwich. I couldn't sleep at night because my heart was beating so fast and my stomach hurt so much.... (view more)

I have a friend who used to weigh 160. She did lots of crunches every night, walked for an hour, ate healthy, and drank nothing but water. In about 1 1/2 to 2 months, she went down to 130. Now She's at healthy weight! Simplest of things make a difference...
