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!

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!

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!

I've managed to lose 45 lbs (3st 3lbs) but I need to stop. (Note: 13 st 0 is 182 lb.)

Start: Ht. 5'4", 172 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'6", 167 lb (BMI %tile: 94) - Okay, well when I first started becoming aware of my weight, I was 10 years old. I first started wanting to lose weight before I started 8th grade. I began watching what I ate and counted my calories and exercised on my Wii Fit. Soon I started losing weight very quickly and I got down to 160! I was able to keep the weight off until spring break and then I gained 10 pounds in 10 days! I dont know what happened to me. I was so sad. But now I am staring to exercise and I'm losing weight again. I hope to be at 140 or less before I start high school in September. I am tired of looking at my self in the mirror and being so sad about what I see. So now I am taking charge of my life! Wish me luck! I hope everyone else is able to reach their weight loss goals as well.

Start: Ht. 5'4", 235 lb ( BMI %tile: 98) Today: Ht. 5'6", 155 lb (BMI %tile: 83) - i reached my goal by doing exercise every day and eating right and my friends and family support i have still not achieved my goal but i still think this would inspire other people that if your really want something and you never give up and if you fall you get back up even stronger then before and you don't let anyone get in your with determination and hard work you will truly get what you want and what you deserve life is to short to have regrets never ever let people put you down because trust me on this one what goes around comes around one day they can be pudding you down cause of the way you look the other you will put them down cause of how good you look always get inspired by other people and you will make it their is nothing in this life that you cannot achieve.
