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!

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

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!

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.

From Leslie, Age 17, female - 07/20/02 - IP#:  
I haven't reached my goal yet but I have lost 2 lbs. in the past 2 days and I'm very happy. I did by swimming 30 minutes each day and cutting back my foods in 1/2. It works! ;)

From Amanda, Age 10, female - 07/17/02 - IP#:

From Camille, Age 14, female - 07/15/02 - IP#:  
My weight peaked when it was Christmas time last year, I was shocked to discover I weighed 185, I knew something had to be done! But I was lazy at first, but still in a period of a few months I lost 10 pounds by incorporating a little exercise. Then more recently I decided to really crank it up a notch, cut out as much junk as possible and exercise every day. I've lost another 5 pounds since then. I am still losing weight and I hope to reach 145 around October. (By the way I am 5'8".)Good luck everyone! Don't give up! Remember that everyone has their bad days.

Hey yall! I first want to say how much i appriciate this page. It gives us all hope-and a ton of motivation. If youre still having trouble losing the weight that you want to remeber this:DONT GIVE UP!!!!i weighed 157 an december of 2002(im 5'5) and have lost 22lbs since then, the remaining mostly being muscle. I ran almost every night, and followed one of the most important rules of dieting:eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. in other words, eat a large breakfast, medium lunch, and a very small dinner

From Kim, Age 19, female - 07/11/02 - IP#:  
I'm 5'9" which pretty tall and have a little bit of muscule but still weight at about 250. I was in track and made all-state but I figured out that in just 2 weeks I've lost 15 lbs. from the slimfast diet. All I did was substitute a shake for breakfast and lunch and not a eat a big dinner. I also cut out all pop and drank water and sports drinks. I'll try to keep it up and if I can do it you can too!
