i went on my first diet when i was five. for some reason i had always thought i was fat the funny thing is now that i am older i look back at the photographs of myself and realize i wasn't i just believed it because that is what my mother told me. that was the beggining of my struggle with weight since then through constant dieting i had developed a weight problem i tried starvation one meal a day eating the same thing eating salads for lunch and almost took some diet pills almost i'm glad i didn't then one day i fianlly saw the light i stopped searching for a miracle the one diet that was going to make me then froever you know the diet where you can still eat mashed potatoes and ice cream and lose weight without exercise this time i tried the one thing i had heard medical experts reccomend but diddn't believe actually worked i began to exercise cut calories by a moderate amount i ate...

i already put my success story on here i just remebered something i meant to put.STOP EATTING JUNKFOOD IF U WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT!!! if u get a craving for something yummy like pizza or bacon don't eat that grab an apple they are yummy they have vitimins and are good for your health! banannas are yummy too. and to lose weight you also have to be active. instead of just doing PE at school get into athletics and if that is not possible then work in the garden or go ride a bike, roller bladeing is alot of fun too. LISTEN TO ME WHEN I TELL YOU THIS YOU CAN DO IT DON'T GIVE UP!!!love ya buncheslili

From Lacy, Age 17, female - 02/15/03 - IP#:  
For the past two years I have steadly been gaining weight. I hated every pound I gained, and finally when I was approaching 200 pounds, I made an attempt to lose all my newly added poundage. Im effect, I actually GAINED ten more! I stayed strong and determined - and was finally 115 pounds. Yet, even after reaching my goal - I continued to drop weight. Everyone was telling me I had lost too much. When I reached about 100 pounds; It finally sunk in that I had over-done my dieting - and I gained back some weight. Now I am 5'4 and 120 pounds. I am healthy and happy. And strong. I am also a dancer and proud to be thin. Good luck to everyone who is working on their image. Just don't go too far.

When i was 7 i started gaining weight, by the time i was 14, i was 245 pounds.My junior year in highschool was hell,i was up to 298 pounds. I felt i was drowing myself in fat, so i decided to do something about it. I began slow, i started walking drinking lots of water and eating healther. When graduation came around it was 16 months later and 148 pounds lighter. I know weigh 130 pounds and i feel and look great. It was a hard road but paid of in the end.

From Nick, Age 14, male - 02/09/03 - IP#:

From Rachel, Age 16, female - 02/08/03 - IP#:  
hi everyone. i haven't reached my weight goal yet, but i'm getting there! i used to starve myself and when i stopped, i put all the weight back on adn even more!! i tried to go on diet again but i failed so many times. but didn't give up. about 2 weeks, i really started eating healthy and exercising regularly. all i did was cut down on junk food and other fatty food and exerise 15 minutes a day and built up to 20 minutes. well, guess what? my pants that used to be really tight on me r already a bit loose!! now i know that i'll reach my weight goal in no time!! for those of u who r starving themselves or trying to starve themselves. IT'S NOT WORTH IT! trust me...i've been there before and it's bad. u can't starve urself forever. so when u go back to ur normal eating pattern, u will put ALL the weight back on and even MORE!!! i hope my story helped :)
