Ht. 5'8", Start: 115 lb, Today: 320 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 115 lb - When I was younger, I used to be heavily obese. By the time I was in first grade, I was close to 200 pounds. But then my parents decided to help me lose weight. Bit by bit and year by year, I eventually reached a healthy weight by fourth grade. I kept that weight throughout fourth and fifth grade. But when I reached middle school and sixth grade, the pressure of middle school got to me. I didn’t watch my weight or cared about what I ate anymore, and I absolutely ballooned up. At the end of sixth grade, I went from 120 pounds to 187 pounds. My parent showed lots of worry that I was returning to my old ways, but I didn’t care. Now I’m 13, almost reaching the end of my eighth grade year, and I weight 320 pounds, and simple things like getting dressed and walking make me tired. I know I’ll mever get my skinny body back, so I just don’t really care anymore.

Ht. 5'8", Start: 172 lb, Today: 172 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 145 lb - I hate being fat! When we do the warm-ups during pe, I can't even do ten sit-ups or ten push-ups! I can't even do ONE pull-up, that's how heavy I am. The problem is, I eat and I don't stop eating. If my parents aren't home, I'll eat like half of our food, just out of boredom. I'm almost 200 pounds and I'm barely in sixth grade. Help!
