Well, I was 12 and 175 pounds at 5ft 1inch. I was wearing a size 16 in womens. So, through careful research on the internet, I found a way which worked best for me, calorie counting. But let me tell you, the first 10 pounds are the easiest to lose, which I did in about 3 weeks. After about 2 months I had to start exercising to keep the weight going. I've been off and on calorie counting for what will be over 2 years now, and recently I have gone back on it becauseIi would like to lose more weight. Currently, though, I am 136 pounds and 5ft 2inches. I lost more weight when I joined tennis, which was a great expirience, and summer was a great time to do things. I suggest to anyone who wants to lose weight to just exercise, watch what you eat, and to remember, these things take time. My next goal is 130 pounds, and eventually I want to be around the 115 area. I hope I can achieve my goal. I have faith in myself because I have already lost about 40 pounds. Good luck to the rest of you!

I started doing full body weight training every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 1 1/2 hours. Then doing Cardio 30 mins on Mon, Weds, Fri, and 45 mins Tuesday and Saturday. (Taking days off Thurs and Sun to let my body rest.) As for food. I STILL eat peanut butter on 2 slices of whole wheat bread. then for snack I eat Light 'n fit creamy yogurt (low in sugar 10 grams) and an apple. Then for lunch I eat a tuna sandwich on 2 slices of whole wheat bread(with full fat mayo in my tuna)(mustard, pickles and pepperchinis) Then eat more fruit for snack. Then a couple hours later eat some broccoli and carrotts. then eat a salad with chicken. (dressing olive oil and vinegar.) I am never bored with what I eat because I do eat "forbidden" foods, only in moderation. (on weekends)I was about 135 lbs. I am down to 130 lbs. Though it may not sound like a big difference, it's because I've gained muscle.If anyone needs advice, I am going to be going into college to learn more about nutrition, exercise and healthier living. Please feel free to email me.

When I was 12, I weighed 236 lbs. I felt horrible, and I had no self esteem. I would look in the mirror and get depressed, so I would eat, then I would look in the mirror and get depressed...and so on.. I decided not to let it happen anymore. I started walking every day and riding my bike as often as I could. I also cut all of the extra sugar and fat out of my diet, only having it ocasionally. It really helped. Now, at 16, I weigh 127 lbs. It is a great feeling to be able to run and jump without feeling out of breath. It is also great to feel good about yourself. keep trying, and you can lose weight too.

lifting weights & eating good foods.

From Katie, 0female - 11/03/02 - IP#:  
I've lost 22 lbs. Just exercise, Aerobics did it for me.don't eat as much sugar, or unhealthy stuff. Eat morefruit. Don't go cold turkey with sugar. Once you start to lose weight, it will get harder so i suggest togive your self a easy exercise plan at first and build up. Take small steps when you eat. Start to eat less, then when your stomach adjusts to that, you can reduce your food intake a little more.

Hi!!! I was always the happiest cutest little kid on the block. I had always been a little chubby. once I started 2 loose weight all of the things i could never do b4 happened!! First it started with little things like doing a sit up or a pull up. my friends didnt really care b cause they could already do all of that stuff. No fancy diet plans 4 me.

Allmy childhood growing up, I was the fat kid. I was teased about it all throughout middle school and high school.I understand kids can be cruel. I was always a big football and professional wrestling fan. I guess I liked watching what I thought I never could be. Then, when I was 15, I finally gain the courage to tell my crush of 8 months in high school how I felt about her and she said in so many words "look at yourself, you are a fat hog! get out of my sight!" I was crushed to think she was really a nice person. Nowadays, I thank that girl for everything she has done for me. She made me realize that if i want people to like me, I AM GOING TO LEARN TO LIKE ME. So I said to myself "I am only about 50 pounds overweight Lets give it a shot" So over time, i would lose about a total of 10 pounds a month after hard work and dedication (but my mom made it fun too), But the cool thing about...

the best, easiest and funniest way to loose weight is to dance. at home put ur music loud and just dance to the beat. feel relaxed and tell yourself wow. trust me it works. i had curves and a flat stomach in within a few months. feel frre to email me at

From Jennifer Whitehead, Age 14, female - 10/21/02 - IP#:  
I didnt know how fat i woz until i got on the scales and weighed 154 pounds. i woz so freaked out. People had not told me how fat I was. I told my mum that I was fat and we decided to make a healthy eating plan. I hated being fat, because I couldn't wear any nice clothes and all my clothes were gross and baggy. I lost about four pounds in about a week and just continued until I got to 119 pounds. I want to weigh a bit less but I know I can do it. I can't believe that I'm not as fat as I was and it's taken five years to realise I was fat. The message to everybody whois trying, keep trying because it's way better being slim and you'll be really proud of yourself.
