I started coming here during last summer and would come back perodically. At that time I weighed 145 pounds. I am just under five foot tall and so the "ideal" weight of someone my height is between 90 and 121 pounds, unless you are muscular. I always have thought of myself as overweight(unless I was going through a denial period)but I never did anything to help it. I have never been very athletic so I didn't get a lot of excercise. Over the past year and a half tho' I started judo, a martial art, and have become more active but have also gained weight(perhaps because of a slight muscle gain)unfortunately I know that I don't have enough muscle for that to b a healthy weight for me. This past november we had a judo competition that i went to and I weighed 148 pounds. I might have been ok with that, or ignored it, if it hadn't been for the fact that 2 guys that I had a crush on(and still... (view more)

hello everyone! i am 13 and about 1.5 years ago I weighed 140 and I was only 4'11"! I was really big and sick of getting teased at school so I went on a diet and started exercsing and by the end of the 1st week I had lost 3 pounds! By 2 months later i had lost 10 pounds and total I lost 17 pounds, but during the winter I got lazy and gained some back (5) pounds, and i thought i had to start over but WHEN YOU GROW TALLER YOU WILL GAIN WEIGHT YOU AREN"T GETTING FAT!!! I grew 5 inches and gained 5 pounds and I thought i was fat but my doctor explained i was growing.This is my success story, eat right, stop w/ the candy and dont eat red meat!!! GOOD LUCK!

Just wanted to say I lost 50 pounds so far. Just eating better and excersizing at least 45 minutes a day. Sit-ups are also a good daily habit. I'm about 6'2 and I know weigh about 188 pounds. I'm still on my diet though and plan on going down to 180. The hardest part of any diet is the start. You don't lose weight right away and the transition from no excersize to moderate excersize, and the cutting down of food can be tough. After about 3 weeks though of really keeping at it, your body will kick-start into weight loss mode. It will be easier to eat less, easier to excersize, and you will notice yourself having more energy. After that, it's just keeping up your diet and watching the pounds go away. Also, don't weigh yourselves daily, maybe weekly, and only in the morning. That's about it, hope I can inspire anyone who reads this.

I was 136 lbs. last July. 10 months later, I weigh 113-114 lbs. I been taking karate for 6 months and I watch what I eat. I rarely eat fast food, my mom says that the milkshakes and the fries are the WORST!!! Then my mom bought the book "Restaurant Confidential" and pointed out just how FATTENING fast food is. I limit my snacks to about 100-200 calories (Fat-Free Jello Pudding snacks are the best!!). I eat a lot of fruit and very little pasta. I used to eat 3 slices of pizza but now I only eat one. 1 slice of pizza is 420 calories and 1 slice of pizza with pepperoni is 620 calories! Now I only eat plain pizza! Like i said, you have to watch your calories CAREFULLY!!!!! Oh, yeah, i drink a lot of water and no soda. My mom said that the artificial sweeteners in diet soda actually STIMULATE your appetitie.

I used to weigh about 200 and was only 5 foot six. The thing i did to loose weight was to only eat the three main meals of the day. No Snacks. Never eat past 7:00 at night. Once you start loosing weight it will inspire you to loose more.

okay i am 14 and i used to way 170 lb's. I totally decided to go on a diet and i cut out all pop, candies, and fattening foods. I also bought this really cheap excercise video becuase i didn't want to be doing the wrong excercises and that helped too.I lost about 10 pounds in 3 weeks and am still losing weight i can't wait to lose more it really boosted my energy.
