I was really depressed with my weight last year..even though everyone disagreed, I felt as if I were really overweight. I developed an eating disorder that was unhealthy and definatly unsuccessful. I was 130 pounds, and now after joining 2 new teams (swimming and hockey) I feel great...It doesnt even matter to me that I weigh more then my best friend. I feel good, and thats the important thing right?

Hey, I'm seventeen. As a freshman in my university's marching band, I felt that I was the largest person on the field. I'm 5'5, and I weigh 185 pounds. I recently started exercising a couple of days ago, and I have already lost a pound. I've done this by exercising to some of Denise Austin's exercising tapes. Hopefully I'll be able to raech my goal of weighing 140 pounds by the start of the fall 2002 semester.

Hi, i want to say that Christine's story is inspiring me to lose the wieght that i want. Im 5'5', and i weigh 150, my goal is to reach at least 130 lbs. I just started yesterday after i read Christines story, but im confident that going on this junk-food free diet and doing tae-bo everyday will help will shed the pounds! Ive spent alot of my life unhappy about myself because i thought that i was to fat for just about everything, now im starting to take control, and although it might take awhile, im going to stick to it. I want to speak to all of u who are very unhappy about their wieght, your not going to lose any pounds whatsoever if you don't work on the inside first, because thats where losing wieght starts. First be happy with who and what you are, be content, then work to make changes in you and your body that will help you become a better person than you already are. Thanx, when i have lost the wieght i will be sure to write again.

HEY There! My names Christine and i reached my goal of 128lbs from 166lbs. It took me a little over 3 months to do but every week I saw little changes in my body. I reached my goal by exercising 5-7 days a week and eating a well balanced diet. For me im 5"6 and im still trying to lose weight. I want to weight 115lbs. When i started my diet I ate a boiled egg for breakfast and a peice of toast with aone teaspoon natural jam. For lunch i would eat 2 peices of bread, half a can of tuna and half a toamtoe with one tablespoon of mayonaisse. For dinner i ate 2 medium sized baked potatoes with 1 tablespoon of mayonaisse. I exercised by running on a treadmill burning 250 cals for 30min daily. I think my diet worked for me because the food i was eating still had a little fat in it. I liked the foods i was eating so i was not starving my cravings. Good luck with your diet!! I know you can do it!---After all i didnt think i could , and i did!.

I never though basic walking and stuff could cut your weight as much as its been doing for me, but since I started at my new school, they make us walk, run, jog about a mile and a quarter each day and Im 5'8 and I was 144 lbs, and in just over a week im 138 and i am muscular so i dont look 138, and my stomach is getting flatter too, ive been wearing tighter tank tops and i can wear a bikini without that pudge on my sides its an amazing feeling.

Hello to all. I just wanted to say that all of your stories inspired me. I weigh 210 and... 1 to 2 weeks ago, I weighed 220. I exercised a little, but not a lot, and mostly stopped eating a lot. September 3, I decided to really make an effort to loose my weight because ever since I was 14, I put myself on diets, but alwyas dropped out of them. I cry about it, and I dreamed of being the right size when being in high school. Well, I'm a freshman (9th grade), and I started school 3 weeks ago. I made a promise to loose my weight, and keep this diet. The reason is because I want to look and feel better about myself, and not be ashamed of my body any longer. I cover my stomach, wearing a jacket or sweater, and I'm tired of feeling sorry for myself. This is what I have to do. I will exercise everyday, and push myself to becoming a vegetarian and eating the right foods. My mom went through the... (view more)

I was 11 at the time and I weighed 72 lbs. I thought that I was supper fat! So I went on a 1000 calorie day diet and people were noticed the weight I had lost. I thought that if cutting back to 1000 calories was getting this much notice the why not 500 calorires! That was the road I took to becoming anorexic. I was anorexic for a lone time and people did notice that I had lost the weight and knew that it wasn't healthy for me. So one night my dad came home with a big steak and said that I was going to eat it every bit of it. I begged him not to but he would not change his mind. So I did I had to! That steak changed the way I thought about myself, I didn't want to be anorexic so I tried to eat ever day. I was a long road to recovory but now at age 12 I'm at my ideal weight!

Well first off, I joined an excercise club. My mom and I joined "Curves" its for women only and it helps you alot. I started buying nonfat milk and cut back on the carbs. Id have fruit in the morning. Just maybe a big bottle of water at lunch(At school all they sell is junk food, and its corny to bring ur lunch)At dinner Id have some fish and vegetables. Also they have Slim Fast bars that I ate that were so yummy and they helped you lose weight, I had those for snacks. Basically cutiing down ur portions instead of eating 2 hamburgers from Mcdonalds will be the best thing. I lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks and have so many tips so please email me at I can help u lose weight I PROMISE. If I dont then theres something wrong with you so please email me and I can help u

Hey guys thanks to Weight Watchers I've now lost 23.6 pounds! I'm down to about 176. Well actually less than that because I wore jeans when I was weighed today and they weight like, 1 pound, so now I'm at 175! :) I have about 10-20 pounds to go before I'm satisfied but I'm so excited and I lost all of this weight THIS SUMMER! I can't wait to go back to school people will be so surprised! I know 175 lbs must sound like a lot but I'm 5'10" so..yeah and I'm going to basketball camp all week from 9am-5pm so I'm hoping to drop a couple more pounds. Well thanks to everyone for supporting each other and you can do whatever you put your mind to! Love Maggie
