i have always been really short for my age...about half a foot shorter than all of my classmates. and up until second grade i was thin for my age also. i'll never forget the night when my mom was in my room and told me, in front of my brother, that i had been gaining weight...i remember saying "no i haven't"...and i know she didn't mean anything by it, but i'll never forget it...the next year, in third grade i was 4'7" and weight 100lbs. which is about fifteen pounds overweight. i wouldn't wear jeans, i would only wear stretch pants that weren't as uncomfortable as wearing tight fifth grade i underwent a lot of teasing for various reasons, and i didn't get any physical activity...over the summer, all i did was sit at home watching television. when sixth grade hit, i weight around 110, and i was still around 4'8"...which is twenty pounds overweight for that height...during...

First of all,,Its important that you loose weight the right way. That is by eating nutrious and excercising. I have 2 children, and I was always an athlete, I am 5'9 and I now weigh 165. I weighed 185 after my sons birth, and I was never this heavy. I stressed out and I decided to loose the extra pounds. Nothing seemed to work, I found something that worked for me though,,and I hope it will work for you,, try playing a sport. I always played sports in hight school and i was not only fit, but muscular. I joined my community volleyball team, and not only did i loose 20 pounds in 3 months , but I became the best player in our team. How cool is that. I walk a lot too, as for eating,, I eat small portions of anything, i feel like eating, I drink a lot of water, and I dont eat anything after 6 p.m. just dring water after 6. I always eat a healthy breakfast though, never skip breakfast. If you need any advise or support please feel free to email me at, have faith!!!

Hey everyone!! This is how I got started on my diet. I have a friend who I was always so jealous of b/c she always was thin and had that perfect little figure and I was always a little chubby in my stomach and my hips. Well just this past November she thought we wanted to loose some weight she was 5'4 and weighed in at 145 lbs. Today she now weights 120 lbs. and she looks awesome. I didn't realize that she really did need to loose a little weight. She is so much happier now. So this inspired me to get fit and loose a little weight also. I'm 5'3 and I weigh 132 lbs. ( I want to weigh 115) I started my diet 2 days ago and so far so good. I've lost 1 lb. already and I'm feeling a lot better about myslef. For breakfast I eat fruit only! and Lunch I a eat salad adn dinner I eat whatever my mom makes but I eat a lot smaller and I rollerblade 40 minutes a day and do stomach crunches and lift some weights. So good luck to everyone and congrats to who lost there weight!!

I haven't lost all of the weight that i want to yet, but i'm well on my way, It really stinks being overweight for many different reasons but one big thing is not having a boyfriend, but someday i will. Right now i wear about an 16 to 18 in jeans and i plan to get to a 10 or 12. The way i am losing it is walking or bike riding everyday, usually bike riding because it's not so boring, But also by cutting down and watching what i eat, when i get down and am about ready to give up i think of getting into that size ten or twelve pair of jeans, I also want to lose the weight to show people that it is possible and to be a role model for people my age to lose weight and show them that's it's not easy especially the first few weeks but it does get alot easier when you see your results. Well i just want to tell everyone to hang in there including myself and if anyone needs to talk, about ANYTHING, even if it's not about dieting or excercising, i'm hear to listen and help you out!! My e-mail is, Have a good day and don't give up!!!

You have no idea how long i've been waiting to loose some weight...i've been up and down for the past 4 years!!! Finally this year, after gaining about 20 lbs. from the year past, i started running every day! its tough at first, but after a week or so, it feels like nothing! anyways, i just did that and started drinking LOTS of water and really paying attention to what i ate! once i stopped pigging out on things that made me gain weight, i didn't feel like i needed them anymore! not to mention, now when i go to pig out on things i used to love, they make me feel sick b/c i've gotten used to eating healthier!

From Beth, Age 14, female - 06/03/02 - IP#:

When I was in the 6th grade i weighed 164 pounds. and everyone would always make fun of me and stuff like that but then i came back when I went into 7th grade and i weighed 123 puonds. I had lost 41 pounds over my summer break. And about 3 guys on the 1st day of school asked me out and I had to break it down to them that they were being really big jerks when we were in 6th grade and i would never go out with them no matter what then the 1st dance came around and this guy asked me to it and I told him yes! now He and I are going on our 1 year ann. now i know is i can do all this you can to but do not go on a starvation diet my best friend did and she got so thin you could count every rid and bone in her body after about 94 day s in the hospital she recoverd and now she is eating right and keeping a regular diet of a full breakfast a apple 4 lunch and 1/3 of the regular dinner!!

I don't know what it was but i wanted to lose weight fast! So, with the help of my friend, Christy we started skipping lunch and drinking lots of water! She lost 30 and i lost 50 pounds and am 5"4 and a half! I went from a size 12 to a size 3/4! I still want to lose about 13 pounds and I think I can! So good luck to everyone!

Well done to all of u...that's great!! But i just want to warn u to not go on really strict diets, because you're heading right for an eating disorder...and belive me, that's hell!!!! You spend your life only, only thinking about food, and you put on loads of weight..and even if you don't, you end up wanting to commit suicide...I know because i've been there, and i am not yet if you wanna loose weight, go and see you advise is to do a sport you like, and to eat everything, but sensibly, and especially, to stick to 4 meals a day..breakfast, lunck, snack and dinner!!! eat lots of veggies, of fuit and lean stuff, but don't forbid youself anything!!! that way, you will loose weight very slowly, but forever and you'll never ever have a weight problem again...lots of love, and sorry my English isn't great, but i'm from France!!
