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...

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!

Hi everyone. My name is Jon, and i wanted to share my story with everyone. I have been Incredibly overweight my whole life. When I was only 13, I weighed 140, and in high school, I jumped over into the 200s. I had such a hard time, because people around me would make fun of me or tease me. Soemtimes, they wouldn't say directly that i was chubby or fat, but they would tease me about something else, that they woul'nt tease others about normally, like glasses or my clothing. Anyway, I struggled to lose the weight and nothing seemed to work. Sometimes, i'd drop pounds, then gain them back. The problem was, my family members were also overweight and had bad eating habits (like junk food, cookies, donuts, chips, etc.). Since then, I've been able to lose 30 pounds and now weight 195.

Hi guys my name is Tommy and my life has been a roller coaster for me. All my life I have been known as the chubby kid but things got worse when I got into high school. When all the jocks were weight lifting I was going to the local dollar store and buying all the junk food I could. I would go home watch t.v and eat till it was time to go to bed. And when I woke up I hated to go to school so sometimes I would skip ,stay home and eat and watch talk shows. At school kids called me chubby tommy but I did not mind until one day some kids pushed me to the ground and watched as I struggled to get up. As I got up thye pushed me again and thats when I got panic attacks about being with other peeople. So now I was fat and didnt like to be around people, my parents thought I was eating and using drugs but it was the fact that kids hated me for being fat. Near the end of the school year when we...

I was a carb addict so therefore I was fat almost my whole entire life and it has always made me miserable. I recently dicovered the "Atkins Diet" and I have started excersizing. In 2 months Ive lost 23 pounds and Im still going strong. Thanks for the encouragement, Ladies(and gentlemen). I hope all of you get to your goal weight. :)
