Ht. 5'5", Start: 150 lb, Today: 125 lb (BMI %tile: 58), Goal: 110 lb - Ok, I may have lied about my weight, but I need to let this out to someone. Ever since middle school, I have not agreed with my weight. It started with my stomach being larger, then as puberty hit, my butt and thighs. I have slim arms and you can't tell I'm large from my face, but I am bigger. It's the worst feeling in the world. It's on my mind 24/7. My friend insists that I'm not fat, but she wouldn't tell me I was even if I looked like jabba the hutt. To top it off, she is like 90 pounds . When I'm with her I feel like crying because I feel huge. So, for my new years resolution, I decided this needs to stop. After a year of googling weight loss pointers, it's time to actually put it in action. I have tried before, but gave up and failed. I go on the treadmill every morning when I wake up for 30 minutes, 2 miles, and until I lose 200+ calories. I... (view more)

Ht. 5'5", Start: 180 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 130 lb - I hate being overweight mostly since i will be graduating in 6 months (and Prom is coming up too)! I eat healthy, that's not a problem, my problem is that i do not do as much exercise. I get discouraged because i have tried to loose weight but is hard because i have PCOS ( it makes it hard for girls to loose weight).I am going to start doing more exercise and hopefully loose at least 50 pounds by June 1st (PROM NIGHT!).

Ht. 6'2", Start: 263 lb, Today: 263 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 185 lb - Another day. Hope to post less soon but while I'm starting the ability to write and receive feedback is so nice. Back to 263. Weigh myself every morning right when I wake up in my PJ bottoms and t-shirt. So I know I'm getting a consistent read.
Breakfast - 2 bagels and cream cheese
Morning snack - 1 cereal bar
Lunch - turkey and cheese sandwich with mustard, soda
Afternoon snack - 2 cereal bars, soda
Dinner - a hearty portion of enchiladas (a heckuva of a lot less than I used to have). 1 last soda.
Desert - small piece of chocolate cream pie.
Exercise - 10 minute walk around neighborhood. Wednesday is usually a really busy day for me. I'm finding it REALLY hard to fit exercise into my schedule. How do you do it??!!
I know this might sound like a lot but this is a huge reduction from what I was eating before (believe it or not). I... (view more)

Ht. 5'4", Start: 11 st 0, Today: 10 st 11 (BMI %tile: 88), Goal: 10 st 0 - hi, i am a horse rider, so i have a lot of muscle which weighs more? I am a british size 10-12 in clothes. I feel chubby but not fat and as a horse rider who trains big horses i need have a little weight to me but as i said i.ve got a lot of muscle. At school i'm not one of the biggest, i don't stand out too much but i'm also not one of the thinnest. I'm quite fit and good at long distance running. I don't eat alot i just don't seem to be loosing weight. Idealy i'd like to get to 9.5-10 stone in weight. I don't drink hardly anything in a day, maybe one small glass of water-would this have anything to do with me not loosing weight. Because when i'm not trying to loose weight, i loose it. But i wanna loose weight now, is not drinking any water not helping me? Any replys will me much loved, thanky, crystal xxx  (Note: 10 st 11 is 151 lb.)

Ht. 6'2", Start: 263 lb, Today: 264 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 185 lb - Started today at 264 pounds. Not exactly sure what happened. Walked to school a lot faster than I usually do in hopes of getting my heart rate up. 2 bagels and cream cheese for breakfast. Big (but healthy)Salad and soda for lunch (definitely won't be able to kick the soda habit for a while but am definitely cutting back from the 6+ a day I was having). Had two Trader Joe's cereal bars for snack (successfully walked past the donut place right near my school, was super super proud of myself). For dinner, we went to Chipotle but I went with a no-carb burrito bowl (but no dessert!!) so I'm hoping that wasn't a total day buster. Went for a walk with my brother and my dad around the huge park near our house after dinner. This is going to be one heckuva journey. Looking forward to sharing my future progress.

Ht. 5'3", Start: 203 lb, Today: 199 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I feel really alone in this weight loss project. I mean, my family is "doing this" with me. But they don't understand. Theyre not my age. Can somebody help me? Sort of, be my weight losing buddy? Preferably someone my age and close to my weight, a lot of you girls are way skinnier than me, but I just need someone to motivate me. I promise I will help you back as best as I can!

Ht. 5'3", Start: 203 lb, Today: 199 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - Hi everyone. I'm knew to this but I read some bulletins and I just wanted to share. So yesterday my whole family and I started our new diet. Well, it's not really a diet, we're just trying to be more healthy. So far I've done pretty well. We all drink 3 bottles of water a day. We also have structured dinners together, which usually consist of some kind of meat, a vegetable, and some other random (healthy) thing. Also, I jog on the treadmill for 20 minutes. It's so hard though!! There's so many temptations at school and when all of my friends are eating cookies and other sweets right in front of me, I could just cry. Does anyone have advice on how to resist the temptation?

Ht. 5'4", Start: 171 lb, Today: 151 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 108 lb - Hey! We have a lot of new people on here so just wanted to say 'hi' and welcome! Guys, we all screw up sometimes, but we need to know that it gets better. I also wanted to suggest a GREAT exercise, its called Step Ups and its excellent! I'm already see results!
All you have to do is go up and down stepping on a stair step or chair! And it burns approximately 900 calories per hour for a 150 lbs person, Its supposed to be great for tone up and weight loss.
My new routine (After Sunday, I decided to change it to something I could do at home and get it DONE)
Step ups 1 hr. morning 900
Step ups 30 minutes 450
Walk my dogs 200
Walk to park with my sister 275
Sleeping (Yes, it burns cals) 400
Cleaning (My job :)) 300
= 2475 calories burnt
I really hope I can lose like 4-6 lbs on Meg's contest! Well, gotta go do my step ups!
<3 Maddie
(Note: I'm homeschooled so I'm on here earlier then most people o_o)

I am a very happy that you made a change you will lose weight faster then the girls,because you got something that we girls don't have. Drink lots of water, dance in your room, I have done it if it is really cold outside so I don't end up sitting on computer, try it,with your favorite music! I ll be praying for you, my frined James told me just move more,he deaws when bored or strss that a good way to help get rid of strss. You can do it!
Happy New Year!
