From Jon, Age 20, male - 10/04/02 - IP#:  
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...

Hey-I think its great that they have site like this that encourage healthy eating and weight management. Its a good support system. 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. :)

I'm going to be in 10th grade this year and looking in the mirror it realy blows my mind; in 8th grade I was 2 inches shorter and 40 pounds heavier. I am now 5ft 2in 15 7/12 years old, and only 114 pounds! My ultimate goal is 105. That may sound light but for my age I am really really short so it is actually average. Anyway, number one don't look at the scale, weight is always flucuating if you keep checking the scale everyday you will get depressed and comfort eat, not because you are getting fatter but because your weight always changes little changes that don't mean anything but that can make you depressed. So don't always check the scale try to hold it back to once every two weeks. Most of the time the way we feel is based on the way we think we look. So you can look in the mirror, maybe your wearing your fav. shirt and you think "hey, I look good" but then you check the scale and... (view more)

Pushups REALLY help flatten your stomach!! Ive been doing it for only 5 days and i already see results!! I started doing 100 a day and then 100 in the morning and 100 in the evening.. At first it hurt alot but i pushed myself and now it feels so easy! Now im doing 100 in the morning 150 the afternoon and 150 in the evening.

Hey people. I gained weight when I had gone through a major depression that occured about 6 or 7 years ago. I kept eating more than I should, and the most I've weighed was 198 pounds. One day when I got on that scale, it actually hit me that "omg, I'm 198 lbs....." I suddenly slapped myself into gear, and I quit the snacking. I drank more water and ate smaller and smaller portions and I was before. I'm now 5'7" and 154 lbs. I still plan on losing about 20 more pounds, but knowing I've lost 44 already, I know I can do it. All I can say is don't quit! Losing weight can happen! Just stick with it and don't give up!
