From Rebecca, Age 14, female - 02/26/12 - IP#: 99.147.126.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'3", 196 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 152 lb (BMI %tile: 90) - I decided I didn't want to be overweight and "chubby" anymore... my friends always made comments that made me feel self-concious. Still not at my goal weight of 125, but slowly and surely working towards it! I make a weekly meal plan and repeat it for four weeks (or one month) and during that month I create NEXT month's meal plan that I will follow for a month, and so on. Also, you really do have to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and not small glasses, either. I mean 64 oz. of water a DAY! It fills you up really fast so I almost never feel hungry. The basics are: exercise, don't eat sugar/ drink soda, drink LOTS of water, and be proud your new body!

From Noah, Age 15, male - 02/24/12 - IP#: 98.236.220.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'9", 295 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'9", 155.7 lb (BMI %tile: 80) - Hi, I'm Noah and I'm a fifteen. Around my 8th grade year, I was extremely overweight, I usually binged on fried food, cake, ice cream, any thing that had that "feel good" taste to it. Although, not long after I consumed those foods, I felt guilty about eating them. One day out of sheer curiosity I stepped on the scale to see what the number said. To my shock, I was only five pounds under 300lbs. I was deathly afraid for my health, and knew that something had to give. I started exercising, slowly at first. Walking around town every single night, making sure I sweat because my motto was "your not exercising, until you sweat" lol, but anyways, I eventually worked my way down to 265lbs where I hovered for about a year. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't lose any more weight! I had already lost 30lbs, but I wanted to lose more. It did not occur to me ... (view more)

Start: Ht. 5'2", 145 lb ( BMI %tile: 95)    Today: Ht. 5'2", 137 lb (BMI %tile: 92) - Being overweight stinks as everyone knows it~ Easy to gain but hard to lose. I'm glad this website is so supportive and helpful that I was able to lose at least 4-5 lbs. If I can do it you can too. If those of you are on the verge of giving up DON'T!! Keep going and say "Just a little more" or " I'm almost there" You are closer to your goal than you think when you keep going! Hope this helps <3 Kay Good luck!

From ButterflyDutchess, Age 18, female - 12/29/11 - IP#: 71.225.66.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'5", 184 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 156 lb (BMI %tile: 85) - I've had difficulties with my weight since I was 7 years old and went from being very chubby to just pretty chubby throughout my childhood. I never looked horribly obese once I hit seventh grade but always had a round face and belly fat that I hated. Just before my thirteenth birthday I weighed myself, disgusted to realize I was 184 lbs. Pretty soon I'd be 200, if I kept gaining each year! I was ashamed and tired of being the third fattest girl in class, so I bought the book "The Diet for Teenagers Only." I didn't follow the tracking religiously but the information was so powerful and changed my way of life and taught me how to shop and eat smartly. I used Weight Watchers to track Points for a while, and while that worked great I don't have the money right now to continue the program, being in college; so, I've just been trying to aim for healthy food...

Start: Ht. 5'5", 147 lb ( BMI %tile: 90)    Today: Ht. 5'6", 122 lb (BMI %tile: 50) - During the summer before 8th grade, I hated going to the beach or being in a swimsuit when i was surrounded by girls who were much skinnier than me. Ever since I was young, I was somewhat chubby due to poor eating habits. When I entered 8th grade, I decided to pursue my lvoe for swimming by joining a swim team. I didnt change my eating habits at all, but i eneded up dropping to 125. I was happy and out of my previous depression. When i entered high shcool, i joined the cross country team and now i am doing track. I tried eating healthy but this didnt really happen and i ended upo dropping to 119. I have recently decided that it was a nessecity for me to eat healthy so now i am working my way to get a more fit body. I have never been happier than i am now.

From Cindy, Age 16, female - 12/10/11 - IP#: 60.234.144.xxx  
Start: Ht. 172.5 cm, 89 kg ( BMI %tile: 96)    Today: Ht. 172.5 cm, 74.5 kg (BMI %tile: 85) - For the last three months I have only been eating breakfast and dinner, and its working! Before trying this, I had a gym membership and was going about four or five times a week. I was getting quite fit, but not losing weight. Then I read about the 80/20 rule, you know, about 20% of losing weight being about exercise and 80% being about what you eat, so I gave up on the exercising alltogether. It felt kind of strange, as if I wasn't doing enough to lose weight. It was school holidays and I spent my time sitting around, which made me feel a little guilty, because I thought I should have been going to the gym. But after a week of eating two meals a day and being lazy, I jumped on the scale and I had lost one and a half kilos! (or 3 pounds!). I was really happy with this result and have been doing the same thing for the past couple of months. So far I have lost 14.5 kilos (31 pounds)...
