This is an update again. I started at 162 lbs. That was a month and a half ago. After serious diet and excercise, I am now 132 lbs. It is really easy to lose weight once you decide to do it, but you cannot cheat or eat ANY fast food. My goal is 120 lbs, which is about right for a 5'6 person. I will update again when the goal is reached.

Last summer, the summer before I entered high school, I told my self I couldn't enter highschool fat, I couldn't. That summer I lost 20 pounds! This school year I have lost 10 pounds! (I started out 150 some pounds and only 5 ft tall, now I am 5ft2in and 123) Sure exercise, but the biggest thing is don't snack. Eat your three meals a day, skip desert and don't snack unless you are actually hungry. Every time you are going to eat something ask your self why? If it's hunger go ahead but if not skip it and start doing one of your hobbies to get your mind off food.

I had always been overweight for as long as I can remember, and I had always figured that some day I would lose the weight, but I procrastinated constantly, saying "I'll go on a diet tomorrow..." and other things to that effect. I was a compulsive overeater, and very ashamed of the way I looked. By my sophomore year of high school, I weighed almost 270 pounds, and I probably wore about a size 24 (I am 5'9" tall). Just after New Year's, about a month before my 16th birthday, something hit me and I decided I didn't want to be fat anymore. I started slowly, doing a mile on my Nordic Track and trying to cut out most sweets. I would still have a piece of cake or something once or twice a week, but was eventually able to cut sweets out almost altogether. I gradually stopped eating fried foods completely, and now just the thought of them grosses me out. I'll occasionally have a cookie or... (view more)

I started dieting a month ago because its almost summer and I'm going to be in Florida in April. I am 5'6 and started at 162 lbs, but I've lost 20 and am now at 142 lbs today. I still hope to drop another 20, especially since college is next year. The secret to success was not the greatest for me though. I've ran like 3 miles every other day, 60 situps, 50 push-ups (the girly kind), and 50 leg lifts a day. I also eat one meal a day, or at least try to and cut way back on the carbs. This probably isn't the greatest way to lose weight, even though it is effective, and I woudn't really recommend it and less you are in a time crunch to lose weight.

I’ve lost 9 lbs in four weeks. I used to weight 171 lbs now I weight 162 lbs and I’m so proud of myself! My goal is 127 lbs. My advise to those who wanna lose weight is to eat much fruit and veggies and drink lots of water. Also exercies as much as you can!
Good Luck!

when i first starting my dieting i wieghed 185 i lost 15 pounds by myself but then i started to put it back on and i would get really sad and depressed, so my mom being the the wonderful mother that she is decided that me and her would go to weight watchers so that for the summer we both could get new bathing suits. well wieght waaatchers has worked great. i am now at 155 and am 5' 6". i am really happy and proud of myself. my ideal wieght is 135 and i am well on the way. but i will say one thing it isn't as easy as most people make it sound.

As a kid I was always quite overweight. I was made fun of a lot in school. I must say my self esteem was very low. In about 7th grade I decided to start dieting. It didn't work. I could never stick with it. I really did have a food addiction. I always wanted to be able to shop in the jr's department and wear the cute LEI jeans like the other girls. I never thought this could happen because I had reached 220 lbs at the end of my freshman year. The following fall in 10th grade my mom got me some help with a personal trianer. Since October I have been working out 4 times a week and following a strict diet. I am down to 140 lbs!!!!!!!! I am a size 7/8. My closet is filled with denim mini skirts and halter tops. Taking off the weight has changed my life. I will have to say that I would like to loose at least 20 more lbs. I have recently started a intense body building program along with fat reduction supliments to get off the rest of the weight. Good luck to all those who want to loose. Congrats to those who did!

Hey yall. I just started this diet. I havent lost any weight yet. i'll keep up with you guys about my success.

From grace, Age 13, female - 03/21/02 - IP#:  
hello. i am 5-4, and i used 2 weigh 153 pounds. but now i weigh 145 pounds, and the funny thing is, (now i know this isn't good, but listen). when i lost my 8 pounds, i didn't reduce my food to a minimum at all. i just ate normally, sometimes i would skip meals cause i wasn't hungry, and i would go bike riding with my best friend. But at this time, i had totally given up on losing weight because i had only lost 3 pounds in 1 and a half weeks. the thing is, i kept FORCING my self to walk 30 minutes a day. i know that every day sounds like i would lose weight fast, but i hate walking. i love riding my bike. (and its a good workout 4 ur but,lol). like i said before, i wasn't dieting during this time or anything. i checked the scale 2 days ago, and i saw that i had lost 5 more pounds! i was so suprised! but you know what the moral of this whole story is? dont force yourself to do some kind...

hey peeps. I haven't reached my goal yet, but I have lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks. I have a long way to go but i'm not going to give up. I have read alot of these sucess stories and it has even me more confidence. I don't want to lose this weight for neone but me. I'm glad I have found this web site. This has been a relief to see more people like me. At the end of the diet i will weigh 110 lbs. I have lost the 7 lbs by exercising everyday and eating only 1000 calories, 20g of fat, and 300 carbs. It has worked great, and I can't wait to see. I have gone through alot and i deserve to get this. Don't let ne1 put you guys down.Love, Tara
