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.

Well I was 190lbs. And I love to watch Buffy, Brittney, Ext... And every time i saw them i wondered to myself how do they do it? So since I liked Brittney my parents gave me tickets to one of her concerts and my Big Sis. gave me Backstage passes. So when I got there I was looking cute... but I got next to Brittney. She was soooo skiney. Since I was as tall as her I whispered to her How do you do it? She replyed I work out, eat right and dance. I asked her if it was easy. she said no but then she said she would be back in Baton Rough soon. I told her I would meet her next time she came. One year later I went to her concert again... I stood next to her... And boom! I looked exactly like her with freckles and flaming red hair!!! Now I am 19 and I look exacly like I did last month. So that is my and B.S.'s advice 4 u.

From Kelsey, Age 15, female - 11/17/01 - IP#:  
I am not quite there yet, but so far I have lost 20 pounds and I have been eating plenty. What I have been doing is not snacking as much. I made a rule: No eating while watching Tv. Also when I snack I try to eat healthy things and than at meals have what ever I want because my problem has been snaking to much. Alot of times I wasn't hungry, and I didn't even like wehat I was eating but I just had to eat someting, I thought couldn't help it cause I was an emotional eater (when ever I had any feelings I stuffed my face with food). Well now I just busy myself with things and so I am not thinking about food. Or if I feel like eating when I am not hungry I look into this website or a weightloss book and that sets my mind in a mood of "you can do it".
