I was able to reach my goal of losing 15 pounds by eating less and excersizing everyday. I also made sure that i ate for 15 so that i wouldn't be hungry for more food. Also in order to not eat junk food, i thought to myself that when i lost weight, i would be able to eat that certain food.

Hey everyone...Humm...well about less than a week ago I disided to STOP BEING FAT! Honestly I was sick of it. So I made an effort to lose weight. I have a really fast matabilizem the only thing is I was honetsly eating so much that that it really didn't make a differnce. So I starting waking up at 6:00 every morning poping in a work out tape and exercizing for 30 minutes. Then eat a pice of frute for b-fast, light lunch, small dinner. AND DRINKING TONS OF WATER!!! Last week I weighed in at 187-189 and now I have already lost quite a bit of weight I weigh 179 right now, and I feel proud of my self!!! The thing is once you start dieting you won't want to stop, because you no longer want to let your slef down. I'm cummited to loseing more weight, and I own't stop untill I have reached a goal... Good luck everyone!

i am a filipino. i wasn't always overweight until i arrived here in the US where i indulged myself in all the foods i didn't get much chance to eat when i was in the philippines.
i reached 160 pounds in the last week of may. i started feeling bad at myself especially when i look at my pictures a year ago when my weight was okay.
so, what i did was just eat food that would go with my 1,200 calorie diet. just water, if i drank soda i would go for the diet coke since it has 0 calories! i found a tape of tae-bo and started exercising. and now i'm only 145 pounds.
and i started dieting only 3 weeks ago. once i reach my goal of 130 pounds i'll maintain my weight.

I don't eat deep-fried foods anymore. After you go without them for a while, eating them again makes you feel sick. I get more exercise, I go rollerblading and work out with weights three times a week. I eat lots of fruit and vegetables and drink a lot of water.

Hey guys! I haven't reached my goal weight yet (140lbs) but I did lose 2.5lbs last week by eating more veggies and fruits and exercising alot! Now I'm down to about 182lbs. I exercise by using my ABslide for 3 minutes a day, I do Tae Bo and tons of crunches! My bro told me if you do crunches with a pillow behind your lower back, it stretches out your abs at the start for some resistance, therefore increasing the calories you're burning! I hope to lose a 2lbs more this week! Thank you for your help guys and keep trying to reach for your best ~ Maggie

When i was around 11 years old i started gaining more weight. Before i knew it i was 13 years old was about 5'4 1/2 and weighed 140. I had always been trying to lose weight but never fully accomplished my goals. Then one night i realized what im doing to my body and that it's not healthy to be overweight. I barely got picked on because most kids in my class weigh over 150. When i started to go on a diet it was tough, but i kept myself motivated. I road a stationary bike in my basement for an hour or two a day. I stopped drinking pop with lots of calories and watched my intake of food. Two months later i weight 115 and have never felt better. My weight has stabalized and i dont need to work out as much. I still like to work out at times and lift weights. I believe that anyone can lose weight if they keep it up no matter what.

From Margaret, Age 16, female - 06/01/01 - IP#:  
I used to be 5'6" and 185 lbs, and I've gotten down to 165 lbs now. I did it by eating healthier foods and getting more excercise. I'm comfortable at where I'm at now, and plan to stay at this weight.

From Dustin, Age 13, male - 06/01/01 - IP#:  
I used to be 5'4 and 160, now I'm 5'6 and 150. I know I'm still overweight, but I'm still trying to lose. Just wanted to encourage those who feel they can't lose weight that it is possible.

From Jenina, Age 15, female - 05/27/01 - IP#:  
I just want to share with you my storey about how hard it is losing weight, and trying to keep it off. I stared putting on my weight since I was about 4 years old now i am 15, and weighing 265 pounds. I just started my diet on May 21 2001 I never though it would be so hard. During this pass week I have been tempted so many time to eat food that was not good for me, but I stuck it out and made it through. I have been eating a lot of fruits and salads and also i have been excirsing, but the most important thing i have been doing is drinking alot of water and very pround to say i have lost 1 pound. When i lost that pound it made me feel very good about my self, and showed me that i can lose weight and that its going to be hard but i can do it.

From cecilia, Age 15, female - 05/25/01 - IP#:  
Well I really wanted to lose a few pounds & i decided to do some changes. Since January I've changed my eating habits just a little. I just started eating less of what has fat, like cookies,ice cream and i went for fat free foods and low fat foods. I walk like almost everywhere I went. Until now (MAY)I've lost 10 pounds. BUT I would have lost more if I was more active. I feel better than i used to.

From Josh, Age 15, male - 05/17/01 - IP#:  
I weigh 133. Two weeks ago I weighed about 135 or 136. This is mainly from watching what I eat, without much excercising, the last day or 2 i have added excercising along with it. If anyone has tips on how to stay interested in excercising when you aren't involved in sports or anything (cuz i'm homeschooled), please email me at Any other weight loss tips would be appreciated to.
