Ht. 5'4", Start: 150 lb, Today: 143 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 90 lb - MY TIPS
-Stock your schoolbag with healthy snacks, like baby carrots, healthy crackers, etc. in ZipLocs. Then when you have the urge to buy something at the vending machiens, pull out your healthy snacks. (Same with lunch.)
-Drink a lot of water. Add: lemon/lime, stevia (a low-cal natural sweetener), mint, etc.
-Eat veggies before every meal, cuz they'll fill you up a lot.
-Try to stay away from places where people are eating high-cal, unhealthy food.
-Don't eat too much dairy! There's a lot of fat.
-Don't eat, like, nothing for b-fast and lunch, because then you'll binge in the afternoon.
I'm really happy! My brother had some friends over, and there were like a MILLION donuts in our kitchen, but I didn't eat ANY. Yay! I'm going to make myself an egg sandwhich (one scrambled egg on whole wheat toast), and try to get some exercise.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 135.5 lb, Today: 135 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 105 lb - Hi, My name is Angela. And I'm "obese" on their scale. My brother got me a Wii Fit for my birthday because he didn't want me to suffer and go through people making fun of me. I tried to do it everyday, but it just gets tiring standing on this stupid board all day. I spent about 30 minutes on it each day, but then I got sick of it. I finally found a site where kids just like me have the same problem. I see all of those actors and models on T.V. and Magazines and then I just say, "I wanna be just like that." I have a problem with eating and my dad was telling me that he doesn't want me to get too obese. My dad is on a diet, and trying to get me to eat healthier. Parents don't understand how hard it is to drop the soda, junk food, salty, and sugary items and put them aside. My friends tell me I'm not "fat." I don't really believe them because they are like my best friends and they are nice ... (view more)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 200 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 200 lb - Alright, so I'm not actually 200 pounds. But the website owners might want to listen to what I have to say before deleting this. I came upon this website, and am seeing all of these people who are trying very hard to lose weight. I'd really like to help, and if you would like to hear my advice, than you can continue to read this.
Losing weight can be difficult at times. It's the honest truth. Sometimes, that ice cream sandwich looks too tasty, or that piece of cake tastes too good. Of course, these products are alive because of their charming abilities to tantalize our taste buds.
Here are some tips to help you lose weight:
-Get rid of all unhealthy food in your house. If your weight situation is getting this out of control, it's a step you and your family should be willing to take to help you out.
Why?- Simple: Just looking or smelling a food can lead you towards...... (view more)

Start: 17 st 11, Today: 15 st 2, Goal: 7 st 0 - im 10 years old and live in england. I weigh 212 pounds and i cant seem to lose it when i loose some i put it on again :( i can't get enough of junk food. I can't run as fast as my friend's an im really FAT my waist line is almost 40'' i struggle fitting into age 14 jeans.i always get made fun of at school kids push me punch me in the stomach saying things like maybe that'll help you loos weight.
when i was 7 i weighed 122 pounds and everyone madefun of me at 8 i weighed 180 pounds. the school paid for me to go to fat camp and i lost 2 stone. But when i started binge eating i put on almost 2 pounds a day! at 9 i weighed an incredable 249 pounds my Doctor said that by the age of 30 i would weigh on 100 stone! i really had a problem. so my parents sent me to fat camp for 12 weeks. that was followed by a phycology curse and an intense diet. now i weigh 212 pounds but i still have to see the hurse every week for a weigh in.
my target is 7 stone  (Note: 15 st 2 is 212 lb.)
