Ht. 5'1", Start: 195 lb, Today: 195 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Hi! My name is Dee and I've always been overweight. I've seen all types of doctors, trying to figure out exactly what it is. I've never been a food addict and I've always eaten just as much, if not less then all of my other friends, who are all a healthy weight and I've always gotten an adequate amount of exercise. So, it's pretty frustrating that I'm not a healthy weight. So, now I'm really gonna kick myself into gear, because I'm going to the Caribbean with my friends for my sweet sixteen and I would love to look really good in a new bathing suit! I know that for my short height, I should aim a little lower, but even just losing 10 lbs would be a gift to me. I've never been someone to really care about looks or weight, but now, for myself I will. I hope by doing this I can experience new foods, sports and exercises that I can enjoy. So once I loose the weight, I promise to come back and tell you all my success story! Best of luck to all of you here doing the same!! <3 -Dee

I weighed my self last week and I weighed 219 I thought dang I haven't weighed that sense I was 13 so I worked hard and lost 7 pounds but I don't want to stop there I want to go to prom, I want to do my make up and hair and actually feel pretty, I want to love my self so I can be loved by others and I want to lose weight so here we go again I'm going to try and lose 1.5 pounds every week until the end of may which should bring me to 182 which some people would say uhm yeah that's still fat but I don't think it is I've never been that small and that's what I'm going for 182 days from tomorrow I'm going to be 182 pounds and look hot :)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 280 lb, Today: 280 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - I feel terrible. I've been overweight my entire life, and I feel worse now than I ever have. I try so hard to cover up how insecure I am--I dress in style and never leave home without hair and makeup done. I avoid confronting my weight infront of people as much as I possibly can. I want to be healthy and I want to get past all this, but I'm embarrassed to even try. I used to go to the gym, but I was afraid people would look at me and think "What is that fatty doing?" I get so depressed over the way I look. I feel like no one will ever accept me, that no guy will ever want me, and that I should be ashamed of myself for even existing. I just want this constant self-hatred to stop. I want to feel okay. I'm a size 24 right now, and I want to be at least a 16 by prom time. Like that'll happen.

Ht. 5'1", Start: 192 lb, Today: 192 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - I've tried dieting before, but I eat when I'm upset and my life has been filled with a lot of downs lately but I've decided that I don't want to be the girl that every laughs at because she gets tired after running a few laps in gym. I'm the second biggest one of all my friends, and i fell so huge when I stand next to all my size 0 friends. I weigh more then all my guy friends. Some days I just want to leave, and have it all be over. But then I realized I need help, so I was wondering if any of you had words of advice that could help me. I want to start looking beautiful and not having to feel bad about myself all the time.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 216 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Okay, recently i've been to the doctor and i've been diagnosed with something that could contribute to the fact that it's very difficult for me to lose weight. I was both relieved ad irritated hearing this. I felt like, for once, it wasn't my fault i'm bigger. but at the same time, i felt like it wasn't fair that it's so difficult for me. Anyway, the doctors say i'm very healthy in my condition but they want to keep an eye on me so it stays that way. I want to make it easier on them and myself by truly trying to lose weight to benefit my health.
I'm on my school's dance team, so during the week i work out at least 30 minutes from doing technique. But, it isn't quite enough. I was wondering what other people do to workout. I need new ideas. I can run, sure, but i want it to be more creative than that. What happens when i get sick of running? I'll want to stop and i'd lose all the progress i made. So, what else could i do to workout?
much appreciated! :)

Ht. 5'3", Start: 140 lb, Today: 390 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - Hey everyone. As you can see, I'm a very obese teen. I always told myself that I would start a diet soon, but I never had. I never dreamed I would get this huge. I can't fit in any chairs, and they had to find me special chairs at my school. i got stuck in one of the old ones, and they had to get a janitor and 2 other teachers to help me get out. I cant stand being this huge, but I eat all the time and i just cant stop. When im at school, i cant focus well cuz all i think about is food. I overeat so much always. sometimes when i think about how big i've gotten i cry, but then to make myself feel better i get more food, sometimes i eat a whole pizza and a bowl of candy. i used to have a boyfriend, and then i started putting on all the weight. My parents hate that im so big, but they are gone a lot and i eat when im alone. a few... (view more)
