Start: Ht. 5'3", 163 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'4", 135 lb (BMI %tile: 82) - I'd always been the kid that weighed a little more than the other kids but I really started packing on the pounds 4th through 8th grade and I hated being the slow one in PE and not being as athletic as the other girls. I had great friends but they loved to shop and I always went with them but I never really bought or tried anything on because I would have to go to the plus size section and it was embarrassing being the " fat friend" .
I'd told myself many times before " Im going to lse weight, no more sweets" but that never lasted more than a day. But one day something clicked that I need to change my life style and lose weight or I will continue on this path and become obese. So I ate less and walked more and the wright came off, I hope to reach my goal of 125 pounds soon. If you believe in yourself (an have a lot if willpower) you can do it.

count to ten as slow as possible in your head before u start snacking,
it takes ur brain about ten seconds to realize ur not actualy hungry.
and most importantly talk your parents about the quantitie of food eat,
and pass on a second helping.
another thing is to remember that u usauly eat because of stress,so relax and remove hand from chip bag.

Start: Ht. 5'4", 176 lb ( BMI %tile: 97) Today: Ht. 5'4", 163 lb (BMI %tile: 94) - Ok, My birthday is December 23. At the end of the year (of 2011) I went to my doctor, just as an anual visit. I was in basketball at the time. I have been in basketball since 4th grade and volleyball since 8th grade (I'm was in 9th grade, but the year just got over so I will be a 10th grader in August). I have always been 'on the verge of being over weight' but I am also very muscular. So not all of my weight and 'bulkiness' is fat. I have always tried to think of my self as beautiful, and to be confident with my body. I dress myself in proper clothes, and I was fine with it all...but... I started getting tired of having to try all the time. I hate that I had to try really hard with my clothes and makeup and hair, all to feel confident. So in the end of Frebruary I decided to get down to 150 (me being 176 at the time) by April 17th. That was when my class was... (view more)

Start: Ht. 4'9", 120 lb ( BMI %tile: 96) Today: Ht. 5'1", 103 lb (BMI %tile: 64) - I did it! I finally did it. Cutting out carbs, sugar, and not eating dessert everyday, I was able to lower my portion sizes and lower my pants sizes, too ;) I worked out endlessly, and I now have rock hard abs-perfect for bikini season! I did this without the help of my family-I wanted to commit to something and do it. My stomachs more defined, as are my legs. When I was overweight, I hated looking at photos of me in the past-when I use to be skinny. Now, I love looking at them! My tip to you-save your cravings for one day of the week. If you still are craving the food, eat it. You probably won't be. Cravings come and go like *snaps fingers* that! Oh, yes, and I found a way to lose even more weight-pick up a hobby, be it music, writing, ANYTHING. Devote an hour a day to it, and trust me, when you're not spending that hour eating, you'll lose weight even faster! I want to thank blubber busters for their fantastic tips :)

Oh and definitely eating right !

Start: Ht. 5'3", 127 lb ( BMI %tile: 90) Today: Ht. 5'5", 110 lb (BMI %tile: 48) - I was able to loose the weight out of pure detication to soccer. I play classic level soccer now but before I had been cut from 4 challange teams (a level lower than classic) because I wasn't as fast as other girls. I started loosing the weight (about 3 pounds) and tried out for another challange team. I made this team but my coach said I wasn't fast enough to be a starter. ( had started loosing weight officialy that very day. (September 30th) I lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks and became a starter! THis motivated me to loose the rest of the weight. By October 24th I had became my current weight. I became a very good soccer player and this gave me the ability to be a star player on a classic team and the best striker on my middle school team. I had lost 17 pounds in 24 Days! but I didnt just loose weight. I put on 5 pounds of muscle too! (this means that if I didn't gain the muscle I would aprox. 105 pounds).

YOU have the power to recreate your life in the most amazing ways. On the last day of 7th grade I weighed 181.5 pounds. I loved to eat so much. Panera was my weakness. I would always go in an get a whole sandwich, chips, soup, bread, soda, and cookies. I put an end to that. I have recreated my life and have so far lost 26 pounds, but I did take 5 school months off, to maintain but eat what I want. My goal is to lose another 20 pounds in a month using the SCARSDALE diet. It may seem hard, but anyone, and I mean ANYONE can lose up to 10 pounds in A WEEK on it! The diet works, you just need to make it work. Every person is so beautiful. My mother told me today that I am still in the process of blooming into a beautiful flower. DO NOT GIVE UP! Believe me, there are days where I just want to... (view more)

Start: Ht. 5'3", 196 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'5", 152 lb (BMI %tile: 90) - I decided I didn't want to be overweight and "chubby" anymore... my friends always made comments that made me feel self-concious. Still not at my goal weight of 125, but slowly and surely working towards it! I make a weekly meal plan and repeat it for four weeks (or one month) and during that month I create NEXT month's meal plan that I will follow for a month, and so on. Also, you really do have to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and not small glasses, either. I mean 64 oz. of water a DAY! It fills you up really fast so I almost never feel hungry. The basics are: exercise, don't eat sugar/ drink soda, drink LOTS of water, and be proud your new body!

Around my 8th grade year, I was extremely overweight, I usually binged on fried food, cake, ice cream, any thing that had that "feel good" taste to it. Although, not long after I consumed those foods, I felt guilty about eating them. One day out of sheer curiosity I stepped on the scale to see what the number said. To my shock, I was only five pounds under 300lbs. I was deathly afraid for my health, and knew that something had to give. I started exercising, slowly at first. Walking around town every single night, making sure I sweat because my motto was "your not exercising, until you sweat" lol, but anyways, I eventually worked my way down to 265lbs where I hovered for about a year. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't lose any more weight! I had already lost 30lbs, but I wanted to lose more. It did not occur to me ... (view more)
