Ht. 5'0", Start: 9 st 5, Today: 8 st 10 (BMI %tile: 91), Goal: 6 st 10 - Hi, when I was in 9, I weighed 9 stone 5, I was extremely overweight. I was also only 145cm. Since then, I've lost a bit of weight but I'm still very fat. I'm 6th fattest person in my whole year at school. I'm 5 foot, so still short and I've started doing 1500m running but I almost faint and I eat really unhealthily, I haven't gone 1 day without eating, pizza, chocolate or ice cream, often all of those things. I'm the slowest runner, always have been, and my PE teacher says I'm extremely unfit but she has encouraged me a lot recently since I started running. I have a really slow time, most people on their first time did it in 7 minutes and it took me almost 10. I now can run it in 8 minutes 32, which is still bad but better. I have anxiety and I'm very self conscious. I have quite big thighs and a huge stomach and back, with 2 or 3 rolls when I sit down. I just really want to loose weight but I can't do it because of my eating habits.  (Note: 8 st 10 is 122 lb.)

Hi, I'm 12 in just over a month. I'm overweight, I weigh almost 8 stone. My legs are fairly skinny but have a big stomach. In PE I'm the slowest runner (always was) and my PE teacher says I'm very unfit. I was always underweight until I was 9 and I began doing no exercise and eating chocolate a lot. My height is 148cm, I'm quite short for my age! Please help, thanks x

I discovered this site a couple of weeks ago it has really helped me knowing that other people are in the same situation as me and to hear other people's stories. My father left me because my mother and I were too over weight so it is just me and my mum at home.
