Hey! For all those girls out there who like to dance and want to tighten your tummy try belly dancing. I've been doing it for a few months and eventhough i am fairly fat (150lbs 5ft1in), I can see a six pack. It really works your abs. All you have to do is go to yahoo and type in belly dancing and search to find instructions to it. That is if you can't take a class!! Keep up the good work you guys!!!

I wiegh 145 lbs and im 5'5', even though it doesn't sound like a big deal, i look huge, with fat everywhere. Im sick of being depressed about my wieght and not being proud of my body. I see georgeous girls with flat stomachs and perfectly shaped bodies, and i feel worse wishing i could look like that. Im trying to change that, i guarantee that no one, absolutely no one, will lose wieght if they don't work in the inside first, and how they feel about themselves, and how they act. My goal is to wieght 125 lbs. I think the wrong thing that any of you could think is that its about how you look, to much attention is being payed to looks, and thats not whats important. You should like yourself and love yourself first, and want to lose wieght to be more healthy or just to become a better person than you already are...good luck girls, i rooting with ya, hope to reach my goals!

this is a story to all of you young girls trying to become thinner and thinner. when i was in the 11th grade i weighed about 105 i stand 5'3 i was very active in dance though. i looked good, but something in my head started to not feel right, i thought if only i could eat less and less i would weigh less and less, well i fianlly got down to 95 then to 90 then all the way down to 74 lbs. i was unhealthy. i was in the hospital being fed through tubes, and let me tell you not fun!!! to this day i am still afraid of food, but i force myself, i was on the verge of dying, and i was SCARED! never again will i become like that, and i pray to the rest of you you stay healthy. a stick is not attractive. just remember that. a stick can not bear children, and a stick is unhappy. today i weigh 120. and i feel excellent!

Hi My name is Ashley and I'm from a small town in Kentucky! I'm on the verge of being "over-weight" and I've promised myself that I'm not going to let this happen! I started my own personalized diet today and I'll update on this page what happens in the next week or so. I weigh 147 lbs. and I'm hoping to get down to about 110 or 115 lbs. I've longed to be this size my whole life. I've always been bigger than the other kids in my classes. This year I hope to change that! The success stories pages have really inspired me to lose weight. I'm going to try my best to stick with my diet plan and lose the weight that I want to lose. Thanks for your inspiring words. Oh if you have any suggestions on how I can lose weight please send them to me at email@example.com ....Your suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated!! Sincerely, ~Ashley~

HI EVERYONE! I haven't wrote hear in a while. Im feeling pretty depressed so I thought writing my feelings down might make me feel better. My diets going really badly, I cant stop binging. 4 a while things were going well and I lost 14lbs but now ive put on at least 5lb in as many days! I dont know wot 2 do. Its really hard without anyone to turn to. My friends dont understand. They're all really thin and can never even begin to understand what its like to be fat. They try to make me feel better by telling me im not fat but it just makes me feel worse because i know that they're lying to try not to hurt my feelings. They mean well, but i know that im not going 2 be able 2 loose the weight i want 2 lose without support. If anyone has any weight loss ideas or would like to be email buddies, then u can email me at:firstname.lastname@example.org

I weigh 237 pounds and I hate myself! Everyone (including my parents) think I don't care about my body because if I did I would be excercising and Involved in sports. I don't want to be lonely and fat forever. I want to go to the prom and dress in cute things from the gap and 579 but I can't! All of my friends are so beautiful and fit. They make me sick sometimes complaining how they are sooo fat. Most of them weigh within the range of 98-140 lbs. I'm so ashamed of being 100lbs fatter than them that I just smile and listen to them complain about their 'fat' bodies. I do want to change, but I can't. I honestly try to excercise but I never stick to it. I would love to be on a sports team but I am always last to finish laps and everyone roots me on saying"come on , you can do it" and "your doin wonderful girl" Lies! All lies. It's like they sympathize for me being fat. It's embarassing. I'm... (view more)I weigh 237 pounds and I hate myself!

I have big boobs so they jiggle everytime I run so guys make mean commments and girls act like I'm trying to flaunt my burdensome breasts. All these old 30 year old men check me out no 14 or 16 year olds. Wanna know why? Iam fat! i hate myself I might as well die. (view less)

Ok, I'm 5'7" and 150lbs. I really want to loose weight, but I can't keep myself eating healthy. I play sports like ringette and hockey all year round, so I'm active, but nothing works for me. I have a friend who was around my height and weight, and over the summer she lost a lot of weight, now everyone compliments her, and it makes me feel bad, because I don't know what to do...any suggestions?

Why can't you lose weight???? It's easy... just exercise. Eat 3 meals a day even scacks but do physical activity, like, all day. I practice dance, like 12 hours a day, then sleep, and I still eat 3 BIG meals a day with snacks. All you have to do is exercise A LOT. And when you can't do that like on trips do crunches and pushups and situps while you watch TV. Or run around in circles(just dont get dizzy) on commercials. Get a little trampoline and jump while you watch TV. Jump rope while you watch TV. Do some kind of physical activity ALL of the time instead of just sitting there. At school while your sitting in your desk do some little kicks or shuffle your feet around. In gym class participate and run around and do stuff like the other kids. If you get hungry drink water or chew gum. Eat fruits as snacks, but you can still have junk food... just not as much as usual. No I'm not overweight but im giving this advice because it helped my friend lose 150 pounds in a little less than a year.
