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. All i did was yoga aerobics and toning. I learned to like salads(still working on that part( ;) I posted about 3 months ago and i was about 138 139.I said my goal was 111.

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...

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.

From Austin, Age 19, male - 10/11/02 - IP#:  
Hey everyone. Weight has always been a big struggle for me in my life. I was always overweight regardless of how tall ( 6 feet) I became or how much older I was. I eventually tipped the scales at 218 this past February and I decided that I had to do something. So, I went from doing no exercise to doing about 15 minutes a day. I started at 100 situps a day plus 10 minutes on the exercise bike. By the time of my graduation, in May, I had dropped off to 190 pounds. After graduation I was able to spend more time exercising (about 30-40 minutes a day) and over the course of the summer I was able to drop 23 additional pounds to where I am now at 167. I have lost 51 pounds in the course of 8 months and I feel really good about myself for the first time that I can remember. The only diet changes that I made were cutting out all sodas and limiting sweets. By limiting sweets I just... (view more)

I wont say it was easy at first. I found it very difficult the first week. But now i can say as a I look back on the last 16 months and tell you that if I can do it any one can. I started at a slimming club, that was the only way for me. I went every week, and wieghed in. I felt like a cow going in for the slaughter some weeks, but for 28 straight weeks i lost every week. I have now lost 30 kilos and at my Goal of 60 kilos. I have done this by eating 1250 calories a day, and not more than 30 grams of fat. Yes i count every thing that i put in my mouth, and i still do. I have to. I am now a Hostess, and encourage many new members to keep in there. It isn't going to be sinch, but with disapline and hard work and sorry EXERCISE you can do it. I feel so much better about my self, I feel more sexy alive and have a better frame of mind. COME on you can do it, if you are having problems, please... (view more)

i'd thought i'd share my story with you, i wanna inspire others who have had the same problem as i did: Weight was a concern with me ever since 5th-6th grade, but when i was little i didnt have enough will power to do anything about it. i reached the heaviest i have ever weighed in about 8th grade and freshman yr of high school, which was about 186 lbs, size 14 pants. yeah pretty scary right? thats what i realized when i weighed myself and found that out the spring break of 9th grade. i was then determined as hell to get down to 125. so then i tried everything possible. it started out very slow and gradual, i tried to eat right and exercise, but at first i would still on occasion binge every now and then and lack on the exercise part. that summer i lost about 20 lbs before going back to school weighing around 156, then as sophmore yr went on i got better at eating right, but still a lil...

From Karly, Age 14, female - 10/04/02 - IP#:  
It was a lot of work but now i am very proud. I realized that i needed to loose some weight after a physical. I went to the doctors, i was 13 at the time and the first thing they did was weigh me. The scale start going up and i thought i would weigh about 150 pounds but the scale stopped on 180. I was shocked. The nurse sorta looked surprised then led me to the office. The doctor did all the stuff then told me that i am rather overweight. I didn't really think about it. I was like, whatever. And he was like, really, you are about 40 pounds overweight. Do you realize how much that is? And i didn't but then i started to exercise more after that. The next time i went to the doctors, about 1 year later, i stepped on the scale and it stopped on 146. I was really proud. I had lost 34 pounds. No one else really noticed but i did, and i was proud. Now the doctor doesn't have to give me a speech on how unhealthy i am and i can be proud!
