Hey. My name is Ryne. Most of my life, I have been overweight.....until now. I have always had so many friends, but when I started middle school, there were people I didn't know giving me rude remarks. Well, It had gotten out of control and I weighed about 250 pounds. So, one day, I got up and told myself I WAS going to lose weight, and I WASN'T going to be overweight again.Now, I have been eating healthy and excersing ever since. I have lost more than 80 pounds and it feels great. I am 5' 10" and I have a large frame size. I weigh in between 165-170. I have lost all that weight in 3 months. I feel great. Now everyone tells me I'm skinny and I look great. I have even done this without giving up what I love eating. I eat what I want one or two days a week. Thanks for your support, and I hope you all do well on your weight loss.

My name is Hannah, when I first came to this site I weighed 145lbs, (13lbs.overweight). I started posting on the message board, and boy did it help. I met so many people that were just like me, and needed to loose some weight. I met a girl that had the same goal weight as me, 125lbs, and we helped each other get into loose weight and tone our muscles. We exercised twice a day, and stretched three times a day. We both drank 5 glasses of water, and cut down on the colas. When I noticed I was being a couch potato and started to get the munchies I would go take a jog around my neighborhood, or even just a brisk walk. By the time I got back home I was so pumped up I wanted to do more and more and suddenly I lost the craving or just wanted a peice of fruit or glass of water. When it was time to eat and my mom served me my food at dinnertime I would cut every... (view more)

I am still trying to reach my goal of 135 lbs...i am 5'4" and weigh in only 5 lbs lighter than i was at my heaviest (size 12 clothes) BUT I AM NOW DOWN TO A SIZE 8!! I have lost a LOT of inches off my waist hips and bust...and have gained a lot of muscle tone doing ashtanga yoga!!!I am not focused on the scale, just drinking lots of water and cutting out / reducing refined carbs like sugar and bakery really is amazing how my body has changed thru doing yoga -- I highly recommend it...not only will you look better, you will be happier and calmer too!!!!

From Stacy, Age 14, female - 07/12/03 - IP#:  
I wieghed 180 to about 190 pounds... the kids would really pick on me... at first i didnt see my self as overweight... i was in denile... then i saw a modivation to loose weight... and that was my sister. She would always get the cute guys to look at her. And well i got the ugly glares. So i cut back on a lot of my income, of food. I would swim almost everyday. I lost about 20 pounds that summer. And a total of 10 pounds through out the year. i still have some ways to go... my goal is about 127-132. Looking good makes me feel better. And to all you poeple who are stuck at the weight your at, and are disgusted, dont stop trying. You just need to find a motivation... Good luck!

After learning the importance of a healthy lifestyle last year,i realized that it was time for me to change my habits. Last year i weighed 190lbs by slowly begining to excercise and consume less food, i slowly began losing weight. As the first few pounds of my weightloss shed off my body i realized i could do it. I soon gained an amazing will power and became able to resist junk foods. I only ate what i felt would benefit me.My excercise turned into a nightly jog for 20min and sit ups and leg excercises to follow it. I now weigh 148lbs and am still losing weight, i fell alot better about myself and i am much more dtermined than ever.

From Justin, Age 18, male - 07/11/03 - IP#:  
Hey. At my heaviest (the beginning of my Junior year) I was 5'3" and 165 lbs.! My BMI was 29, way too high. I realized I really needed to lose the weight. I drank more water, it helps. I ditched most sodas and juices. Now, almost all I drink is water, and if there is soda around, then I limit it to a can a day. The thing you need to remember is that you should never follow a fad diet, or any diet plan for that matter. Everyone is different, and each person needs to look at their eating habits and change them accordingly. And there is no such thing as "bad" food. I ate pizza about once a week and ate ice cream and fast food (every once in a while), among other things. The important thing is balance. Use up what you eat. I also ate more chicken and salad, they're good for you. I also began an exercise program. You should try riding bikes. It helps burn fat, and it's fun. I am now 130 lbs. and I grew 1 1/2". People have begun to notice, and it feels good. I have been pretty heavy all my life, if I can do it, you can too.

From Chris, Age 22, male - 07/07/03 - IP#:  
I would like to tell you a little about me, and what I have learned. I have been big my whole life. Well when I was a junior in highschool and decided hey I need to lose some weight I hit my highest weight at 225 pounts at about 5'll". Well I droped down to 175 pounds in about a 4 month period and kept it off for about a year but gained it all back and then some. I weighed about 250 lbs and was about 6'0". I graduated highschool and started working out and eating right. I totally transformed my body in about 8 months. I had a small waist and muscle on muscle. I weighed about 200 pounds and looked great. I almost had a six pack. Well I went to college quit working out and gained it all back. Now I am at it again and looking and feeling great. What I have learned is if you want to look good and feel have to work at it. It must be for life. You don't want to make such ... (view more)

Hey, Jme 15/f/nj here. To anybody who wants to know how I got from over 200 lbs. last year to 124 now here's how I did it: Firstly, water does NOT help you lose wieght. It is still really good for you, but it isn't some sort of magic weight loss aid. However, I totally cut out all drinks from my diet besides water (& 1 glass of skim milk for health reasons) after talking with my doctor. Soda, Juice,Ice tea, coffee = unneeded calories. Secondly: I had my doctor set an activity chart for my age, height, weight, and personal needs. Next time you go to your doctor, you can have them do this for you, or if you want, do it youself. I found time every day to exersize in some way for no less than one hour. I'm sure all of you have at least one hour to spare a day. When you could be watching TV or sufing the web...Especially since it's summer. Besides this exersize, I started and ended my day... (view more)
