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)...

Start: Ht. 5'4", 210 lb ( BMI: 36)    Today: Ht. 5'4", 152 lb (BMI: 26) - Hey, you guys I don't know if you remember me but I see a couple of familiar names on here that I saw years ago! Anyway I totally forgot about this site and just typed in the name and saw that it was still in existence! so glad. I remember all the support that I received here :) and motivation. You girls are strong, keep going. I'm almost at my goal but it's so frustrating you know, what with finals coming up especially :( but I won't give up. Also, I'm getting married soon!

Start: Ht. 5'2", 193 lb ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'2", 138 lb (BMI %tile: 88) - hey guys (:
havent been on in a while, but i have since lost 7 more pounds. i am pretty darned happy with myself. :) i truly have come a long way. i remember when i decided to do something about my massive weight. i was nearly 200 pounds and that fact alone made me feel absolutley crumby. I even remember the date. It was December 9th, 2010. Now, nearly an entire year later, i am an entirely different person. I weigh 55 pounds lighter. I feel so much better physically and mentally. I also look healthier. Now, the doctor has informed me that I have made an incredible and drastic improvement. I am very proud. I still have a bit more weight to lose though, the journey isn't yet over. After I reach my current goal (to weigh 130), i think i want to set an additional goal to lose 10 more pounds and weigh 120. I think that is a healthy weight for myself. I am impressed with everyones... (view more)


From Amanda, Age 22, female - 11/24/11 - IP#: 63.135.29.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'8", 225 lb ( BMI: 34)    Today: Ht. 5'8", 165.6 lb (BMI: 25) - SWEET! So, now that I know I lost water weight, I'm down to 165.6 and steadily losing 0.2 pounds per day, so weekly i'll be losing 1.4 lbs. Definitely not an incredible loss but I know from experience that when I lose weight too fast, I gain it back and then some. This way, it will be steady consistent PERMANENT weight loss. I'm also starting a full time job at the hospital starting on Monday (just graduated college yaay!) So from 7am-3pm I will be busy and will be packing healthy low calorie lunches. It's just going to be hard not to snack at night which I am very used to. So at this rate, I'll be 160lbs by Christmas (mini goal) and then close to 155 by my 23rd birthday in January. I'm very positive right now that I can do this! Hope everyones doing great, good luck!

From Lora, Age 16, female - 07/06/11 - IP#: 67.162.78.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'5", 165 lb ( BMI %tile: 95)    Today: Ht. 5'6", 110 lb (BMI %tile: 11) - I didn't really have to try too hard. The first 10lb are the hardest then you just get the hang of it. I was really depressed and knew I had to do something. Swimming and jump roping really helped. Those are both thing I love to do. Get info on how many calories everything has. Did you know that swimming burns over 800 calories an hour? Once you start stick with losing weight! I used to say "one more cookie, I'll eat only healthy starting tomorrow", START TODAY! I feel so good now and I can wear any clothes I want, I had to donate all my old ones and now everyone is like "you look so good". Even my face changed! Get a support system. Just a buddy there can be a huge help if they support you.It's funny cause at first I was like "oh my goodness I have to lose those 50lbs and now I am looking for a way to lose 2lb. Good luck to everyone.It's worth it!

From Tarah, Age 15, female - 07/02/11 - IP#: 67.162.78.xxx  
Start: Ht. 5'5", 180 lb ( BMI %tile: 96)    Today: Ht. 5'5", 140 lb (BMI %tile: 79) - My doctor said I was really obese and that I was a risk of diabetes. I lost a lot of weight and I felt proud. I got a lot of attention from everyone and finally got those solos at dance. But then my mom said I looked to awfully skinny and my doctor said I need to gain 'some' weight.But I don't know how much. At first losing weight was so hard, but then I changed my lifestyle and got the hang of it and it was easier. Now I feel like I can control my weight. All of you out there don't give up cause in the end you will feel proud of yourself!

Start: Ht. 5'9", 16 st 3 ( BMI %tile: 98)    Today: Ht. 5'11", 13 st 0 (BMI %tile: 91) - I was always the biggest in my classes and my year at a time but then my dad got diagnosed with high blood pressure and diabates so my family had to take action. So we started losing weight. It was easy and I lost a stone within 2 months. But then we went off the diet but I go out with my friends a lot and we walk miles at a time. I've managed to lose 45 lbs (3st 3lbs) but I need to stop.  (Note: 13 st 0 is 182 lb.)
