Start: Ht. 4'7", 10 st 4 ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 4'9", 6 st 5 (BMI %tile: 69) - Well it started when I was teased at school about being fat and I thought I should go on a diet for a while and see where it goes. Mum was okay with it and for a while she encouraged me to lose weight. Then it started getting weird, my friends kept saying u look amazing and thought I could fit into their teeny clothes and it turned out they were just the right size. I felt so much better and I would tell everyone this: just exercise cut back on sweets and drink 6-8 cups of water a day. Hope this helpa  (Note: 6 st 5 is 89 lb.)

Start: Ht. 5'3.5", 163 lb ( BMI %tile: 94)    Today: Ht. 5'3.5", 142 lb (BMI %tile: 84) - I've had issues with weight my entire life. As a kid, I was never overweight, but I always had a little extra fat that a lot of other kids my age didn't have. I was never self conscious of it until sixth grade when I joined my school's cheerleading team. I was one of the bigger girls on the team, though still not overweight, and the little twig fliers would say I was too fat to be on the team. Eventually I ended up quitting the cheer team because of it, and it was excruciating knowing that my weight kept me from doing what I wanted to do.
I stayed roughly the same size (100 at 4'11") for all of seventh grade. The summer between 7th and 8th grade, I visited a friend on the other side of the country for a month. I was very homesick and got depressed, and eventually stopped eating. I had my growth spurt, and in eighth grade I was 5'3" and 100 pounds, ... (view more)

So I became vegetarian ,only drank water or coffee and had 1 serving of a carb a day!! I exersice everyday and feel horrible when I don't!! My goal weight is 50 kilos! Wish me luck!  (Note: 156 cm, 56 kg is 5'1", 123 lb.)

Start: Ht. 5'7", 220 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'7", 213 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - so I've always been overweight. in summer 2011, i went on vacation and gained 40 lbs in only a few weeks, which brought me to 225 pounds. i was 5'5 then to that made me obese. luckily i hit my growth spurt and got taller and 5 pounds thinner, so now i was just overweight. i was always made fun of, until the end of 6th grade. now im in 7th and noone picks on me anymore. I can run and exersise but to be honest i hated it, in the middle of this January, 2013, i decided i wanted to loose weight before next school year starts. i exersised every day for about an hour, and ate 3-4 healthy meals a day. by the end of january i lost 7 pounds. I still have alot more to go, my goal is 150 pounds by at least august.

Start: Ht. 5'5", 188 lb ( BMI: 31)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 128 lb (BMI: 21) - So, here I am, FINALLY writing my success story. After my decade-long struggle to lose weight, I can hardly believe that I have reached my goal, and am completely satisfied with my weight. I remember being afraid to weigh myself in the 5th grade, and dedicating ever summer in middle school. Each year I failed, and finally got up to my heaviest at 188. How did I lose the weight? It's simple, I followed these rules:
1. NEVER, EVER buy anything you can't resist. If you know you'll eat the whole bag in one sitting, don't buy it. It's easier to have 10 minutes of willpower in the grocery store than hours of willpower not to eat the treat when sitting home all day.
2. Consider an eating schedule: Breakfast, 2 hours later a snack, 2 hours more have lunch, 3 hours later, dinner, 2 hours later snack. It builds willpower, and then you can maybe go a bit longer... (view more)

From Olivia, Age 19, female - 01/06/13 - IP#:  
Start: Ht. 5'4", 170 lb ( BMI %tile: 93)    Today: Ht. 5'4", 137 lb (BMI %tile: 69) - I began drinking mostly water, black coffee, and diet sodas (but mostly water.) i now eat only when I feel hungry as opposed to eating all the time when bored. I still eat desserts and fatty foods but not near as much as I was. I eat smaller meals/snacks but i eat more often than I used to. I eat a bigger breakfast/smaller dinner. I keep myself busy which means I don't have as much time to eat or think about eating. I'd still like to lose another 12 pounds to reach my goal weight of 125.

From Ariel, Age 15, female - 12/30/12 - IP#:  
Start: Ht. 5'4", 160 lb ( BMI %tile: 95)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 144 lb (BMI %tile: 83) - I started cutting down on junk food that I used to eat everyday. I knew it was bad for me. I also go to a school with six floors so I had a bit of exercise there then I got home and found an app on my iphone by Lolo. It worked wonders

From Olivia, Age 16, female - 12/19/12 - IP#:  
Start: Ht. 5'4", 227 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'4", 215 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - I know its not much but I also have alot of muscle. Back in March 2012 I was convinced to run a marathon with my best friend (26.2) miles. I told her she was crazy and I would only end up doing the half marathon. I was wrong. I spend 7 months of training. Waking up in the summer at 6:30am to go run 5 or 6 miles 3 times a week and then do a Saturday run of 13 miles and kept adding a mile each Saturday. I actually stuck with the training and worked hard! Unfortunately I did not eat the best during this time but I had to eat moderately because you need good nutrients for your body to be able to run that long. On October 21, 2012 I ran a marathon in under 7 hours. I did not run fast, but I ran it. This is just the beginning for me!
