I have 1.5 lbs to go before I reach my goal for now! I may change it later, but this is how I did it. Eat ONLY when you are hungry and stop when you arent anymore, not stuffed. If that is hard then cut in half what you would normally eat and save one half for later. Exercise alot also. Good luck!

Well, I have not yet reached my goal, but I am more than half-way there! I am 11 and I was 102lbs.! I had kept gaining every year until I saw some different articles and programs on discovery health, about how being overweight could cause different illnesses and could become fatal. I decided to start a small diet (just by eating only the serving size it said on the box) and exercising regularly (bike rides, hikes, riding my horses, sit-up's, push-up's, etc.) I am now down to 95lbs.(in 12days)and I hope to be down to 90 lbs. by august 15

Alright, so a about 6 months ago i moved to a different country..and being homesick made me head straight towards the fridge. Not cool. I', 5'9" and in January i was 130lbs and meas. of 34,27,36 and by June i was 34,32,40 and 145lbs. Might not sound like much, but it was a HUGE difference..most of my pants wouldn't even button anymore...urg. So I decided maybe I should do something. I started eating that Special K cereal for breakfast and dinner, and a good lunch, NOT HUGE but nice and complete. Chicken, veggies, soup. And LOTS of Jello in between :) Mostly because it gives you the feeling of being full b-c it IS like a solid food, but it's a liquid so it digests faster. CHEW YOUR FOOD A LOT, trust me you have NO idea how much a lil more saliva can help boost your metabolism, it's proven, look it up ;) And i excersice 2 hrs a day, walk for an hour and bike for another. So far, after a month, i'm down to 34,28,37 and 134lbs. Not much i know but i haven't been 100% faithful ;) what can i say..i'm only human.

I haven't reached my goal of 118 yet. But I have only been on weight watchers diet for two weeks. I didn't want to starve myself and lose only water weight, I wanted a healthy way to make sure weight stayed off and to be skinny, which has never happened to me. I'm 5'4" and 161 1/2 lbs. I started 2 weeks ago, and lost 6lbs since then. Which is healthy. ( And I've done beach body exercise tapes. And I've already lost an inch off of my waist. People actually have told me I look thinner. After 6lbs. Must be the toning from the tapes. ;-) You can do all the food right, but exercise is an important key. I used to dread it, but now I've made it a habit. To do in the morning, before I eat breakfast. So nothing else, "comes up" and I don't have to dread it all day. I started at 167 1/2, and I want to lose 50lbs. So 117 1/2lbs would be my goal. For my age and height, 118 is... (view more)

From Beth, Age 13, female - 07/25/02 - IP#:  
In 6 months i lost 4 and a half stone!! All i did was made sure i did at least half an hour to an hour of excercise a day. I would go swimming twice a week, and do areboics once a week, i also joined a gym, and went 3 times a week! and i cut down my calorie intake to 1500 a day, and drank ice cold water, or herbal tea. I asked my mom to hide the scales, so i wouldnt weigh myself every day, and become really dissapointed i hadnt lost any, and it gave me the will to carry on. Then once a month or once every 2 months i would weigh myself!! everyone can do it i no they can!

From Tianna, Age 11, female - 07/24/02 - IP#:

From Court, Age 14, female - 07/23/02 - IP#:  
I told myself that I could do it, and didn't give up, and whenever I binged, I ran, and whenever I did good, I rewarded myself with more sleep :P

From J, Age 12, male - 07/23/02 - IP#:  
I have always been overweight. I didn't really pay attention to it until last November when I went to my physical. The dotor told me I weighed 138 lbs. I cut down on junk food and lost 8 lbs befor X-mas. In February, I became Lactose Intolerant, which because I couldn't eat ice cream and other milk products, dropped me down to 118 in 3 weeks. I am now 120 and I just wanted to say that if you belive in your self, that you can do it. It also helps to do it with a friend!

From Camille, Age 14, female - 07/21/02 - IP#:  
Hey, first of all I just want to say...If I can do it...ANYBODY can do it. Seriously, I'm 5'5 and weighed 145 pounds. Not that I was seriously overweight but I wasn't thin enough to my liking, plus I couldn't where cute little shirts without a jelly role hanging out the sides! First, I thought that if I just cut all my meals in half, it'd do the trick...WRONG, so I instead ate healthier- no more hamburgers, instead of 4 slcies of pizza - only 1 slice, friuts and veggies for snacks. Well that did help me and helped me lose 10 pounds in only two weeks! But then I was stuck in a rut at 135 and no matter what I did, my weight wouldn't go down anymore. Then, I realized I had been forgetting the most important thing of all: EXERCISE. I'm not a really active person so I ran/jogged for 25 minutes everyday on my mom's treadmill and after that did 3 sets of 10 crunches. Beleive me, that was the... (view more)

Im 5'10 and I used to be 150lbs. I felt i was over weight, so i went on a diet of good healthy foods. I also excersized 5 days a week. My excersizes include jogging/walking, jump rope, crunches, weight lifting(for tone), and of coarse the stair master. By doing this I lost 5lbs a week, and in just a month I was down to my goal weight of 130lbs. I have never felt better, not to mention all the confidence I have now.Tip: Lay off junk food; Have a FRUIT instead. Fruits are just as tasty.

From Priscilla, Age 16, female - 07/20/02 - IP#:  
Ok I used to weight 180lbs. which was alot! I wasn't feeling pretty confident in myself. My clothes wouldn't fit just how I wanted them to fit. So I started a Diet of not eating any junk food or any fast food places. Every weekend like Saturdays and Sundays in the morning I would go jog for like 20 minutes and drink alot of water ofcourse with my little am/fm radio. In 4 weeks I lost 25lbs. Now I weigh 155lbs. and I'm really happy! I'm going to continue till I reach my goal of 125lbs.
