When I was 10 i weighed 180 pounds. I had to go to the doctor because i hadn't gone in 3 years. When i got there i was weighed and she said i was very obese and that i should lose about 70 pounds! She told me to come back next month to weigh me so i did and i had gained 5 pounds. Then she said i had to go on a diet so i did and the next month i had lost 10 pounds. Althogh i still need to lose 65 pounds she still says she was proud of me!

hi guys, i have lost 18 pounds in 3 months, i still have a long way to go. i weighed 207 now i am 189. i stopped drinking regular soda and now only drink diet soda. my mom quit buying junk food and that has helped the most because if it were here i would eat it. i also only have one helping at meals, no seconds! i'm really tall for my age so i can carry my weight better than some, but it still got out of control. what makes me so angry is that when my mom first took me to her doctor, he said " oh, she's just a big tall girl" and acted like it was no big deal. later my mom found a pediatrician and she basically said the same thing. but i had to go back for a booster shoot and saw a different pediatrician and she agreed that i weighed way too much. at first i was angry that my mom keep bringing up my weight to every doc i saw, but now i'm glad she didn't give up. this doc is great she...

I just moved to Florida from Washington. I decided to lose weight when the kids at the beach made fun of me for wearing my dads swim trunks. Mine didn't fit. so far I have lost 3 lbs. i want to lose 40 lbs and get under 200lbs. I joined an excercise club and am trying to stay away from sweets. so far so good but I have a long way to go.

When I went to high school my weight was at 13 stone, by the next year it was at 14 and a half. My self confidence was low, people laughed and ignored me. I refused to do sports in school because of my size. Then there was the bullying some kids pinched the fat till it bruised and then there was the Physical Education teacher who made life hell and one day gave me a 10 minute insulting in front of the class. By this point i had started trying to mutilate myself cutting myself with knives, stubbing fags on my arms etc. I was close to becoming the next Osama Bin Laden. I got a job which involved a lot of hard physical work pushing, pulling, lifting, walking etc. I continued to eat the same - which wasn't much having previously visited a dietician and made little difference to my weight. I make a lot of money and still go to school. Yet the biggest advantage is my weight is down to 11 stone.

hello. i am a 13-year old female, and im in the same battle just like everyone else. so far, i have lost 5 pounds in one week, and i did it all by exersizing every day, and eating less for dinner. i am so happy, i used 2 b 158, now im 153. my goal is to be 115-120. i know its pretty hard to believe that i can do it, but i could if i try. i've got 2 things that keep me going: i picture myself skinny in a size 9jr pair of jeans instead of a size 13jr, and since i lost 5 pounds, im reminding meself if i keep working at it, i can lose the weight i want and wear the kind of bikini i want in the summer.

Well, for me it was mostly growing. when i was about 10, i gained a lot of weight, over a hundred pounds in two years. But the summer before i turned 13 i really started growing, as well as exercising more. so now, more then a year later much of the fat was replaced by muscle( and i've always had large bones) and i'm 6'4" and weigh 239 pounds.
