I am 15. I Love music,reading and art.Since Christmas, I've gained 34 lbs. and went up 7 pant sizes. But now that spring is here I am determined to shed the weight and feel good about myself again...and hopefully stay that way.

I am 16 ,I am social, I love reading, I love my family and I want to travel the world ohh and music is my passion

i am 17 and i n gr 12 . i have lost 20 pounds this year and need to loose atleast 15 more

Hi my name is haley! i am 18 years old and 5'5 at 150lbs. I would love to get down to 130lbs!

I'm almost 20 and am going to get married sometime in the near future. My man says I'm fine just the way I am, but I want to lose weight for me. I want to, have to, lose weight before I start having babies and putting on more weight that I don't need.

I am cliche, lazy, and silly, but i love to laugh and I love to be happy. I play tennis and am in band, and I have a very sad addiction to being busy

I'm 18 years old and will be starting my freshman year of college this fall. I LOVE food and have ZERO self-control. Oh, and I'm incredibly lazy. Despite this, I'd like to lose atleast 35 lbs.

I have been overweight all my life. Just recently though I have been losing weight. I started dieting in september and since then I have already lost 56lbs. and would like to continue to los weight, but I find myself less focused right now. So I decided to join this website to help me out.

I played basketball for 15 years until I was injured and ended my career. After my career was ended I gained 80 lbs and I would like to lose it now.

I am an 18 year old internation relations major, who has always struggled with weight. I have always been active, playing softball and volleyball through out middle and high school, but have recently realized that its not just about exercising its about the things that I eat. I am here to keep up on my weightloss journey having already lost 44lbs since december 2006. The hard thing about sharing my weight with people is that I weigh more than everyone thinks that I do. Even tho my mother and father are both around 5'9- 5'10, somehow my half brother and I got stuck with the beast gene, my brother is 6'7 and I am 5'11. I have a big body for a girl naturally, even without all of the weight. Making it hard to stay with trying to shed the pounds because either way, Im still going to be a giant compared to the rest of my friends.

I'm a girl from a small town, I've been trying to lose weight all my life. I'm currently 223 and 5'8 and looking for help. I am on a diet, I just need the support to stay consistent. So far I've lost about 20 pounds.

i am very friendly. i am a straight a student!!! i am very gifited. i am also very blessed.

I am a very loving and fun girl.I love to laugh and joke around.Im very independent and have a great outlook on life.But i doubt myself alot and the way i look.and i have a really bad eating habit.I always eat before i go to sleep and always eat junk/greasy foods

Please help anyone I need motivation to lose weight I feel so uncomfortable I do not like the way my body is structured. I wish not to purchase any new wardrobe until i get back into a size 14/16 in in a 18 now. So I'm looking forward for assistance from any1 with a few good advice on losing the wight fast.

cw-177, lw-163, 5'9. i used to weigh about 188 but i lost over 20lbs during the summer before my junior year and kept it off for a year. Over my senior year i gradually gained most of it back until i was about 184. I've started losing again and i want to be 155 eventually. I was recruited to row in college but i feel that i will be a much better athlete if i lose the extra weight i am carrying around.

I'm a 19 year old full time college student. I'm currently taking summer classes and working. I'm pre-med and I'm also majoring in international business. I hope to loose weight so I can have more confidence in my appearance and to be healthier.

Well, what can I say? I'm a girl and 15 years old. I'm also a total Band Geek. I'm in practically any kind of band you can think of. Marching Band, Jazz Band, etc. I am 5'7 and i weigh 137 lbs. I want to lose around 10-15 pounds. But no matter how skinny that i've gotten in the past, right above the belt line and below the belly button, that area just seemed to never go away. So i'm going to try to lose as much weight as possible (but not bone skinny) to remove that problem area.

I'm seventeen and a senior in high school. I'm 5'5 and about 140 pounds. When I was a freshman, I weighed 115. I can't seem to keep diets, and I've been trying to lose weight for almost 4 years now. I'm a vegetarian.

I want a lifestyle change and to feel good in my own skin.

Im a 19 year old female who went away to college and gained 30lbs! and I want to lose it... I use to be very active and played softball but stopped about a year ago but I am starting up again in january so need to get back into shape for it ! And also just get into shape because I am just not comfortable with myself at all!....anyway I thought I would feel like so uncomfortable but I actually feel better about letting it all out!...I am starting my new lifestyle tommorow October 23rd, 2007 so I will weigh in tommorow! =)

I'm 17 years old and I'm a senior in high school. I am 5'5" and currently 138. I want to get down to 115. Lately I have been having trouble sticking to diets and working out. I have been trying to lose weight for almost five years now.

I am an extrovert with most things, I want to be done with my weight struggle once and for all and enjoy life as a healthy person

I am 5'11" and currently weigh 160. I need to lose weight because I am going into the entertainment industry and I feel as though I could integrate into a healthier lifestyle and lose weight. I love musical theatre, singing, dancing, etc. Currently a college student.

17. battling with weight issues,i've always been big but the fact i over eat does not help. am at college.

I'm 19 and almost 5' tall. I'm nerdy and bubbly. :)

hello im rachel, i am 15, about 5' 3" and weigh about 107 lb im not overweight, but i definitely do not eat healthy and i know it will come back to me if i dont stop soon. this year i want to eat healthy and get more exercise :]

I'm 18 year old college student. My problem is that I do not dorm and live with my mom. I'm hispanic and most of the food my mom prepares had some kind of fat or is unhealthy. This is something that I do not have control over.

I'm fun and outgoing, but im over weight. I'm tired of looking the way i do. I'm 16 and i want to lose at least 10 pounds before prom. So i way like 180 at the moment. I dont look like it but i do.

My name is Marissa and I am seventeen years old. I love to be with my friends, listen to music, and shop. I am 5'5 and weight about 220 pounds, My goal for now is to reach 150 pounds.

Im an 18 year old female. 5'1 yeah im short. Latin. Im a senior, starting college in dha fall. I wanna become a obstetrican. i been struggling with obsesity all my life. I have a twin sis, which had always been thinnier than me which made me feel soo freaking bad when growing up. everyone would know me as "the fatter twin" at age 15 i was187lbs and i reached up to 192lbs! my twin sister had always been like 2o lbs less than me. being overweight made me feel uncomfable around ppl, reason why i was timid and shy in elemantary school.

When i started High School i faced bxtches that always had somthin to critize about my appearance. i would get so pissed of and i would take out the stress on food. i would eat to aviod the issue. i would eat anythin, anywhere at anytime. you would catch me eating a snack at 2 in da morning. And like i mentioned im hispanic and i have tendency of being overweight. my dad is overweight my mom is a little bit but not too much. soo i have the latin curves that i hated back then. my ass would be hugee and my boobs too. i never really looked how much i really weighted cuz of my curves.

In Sept of 2006. starting the 11th grade, i had problems w. certain girls which resulted in a fight w. 2 of them. they would always called me a "fat bxtch, blah blah blah" after that moment i knew i deff had to do sumthin bout my weight problem. also i was concerned about any health issues that could come if i continued the bad habit. i did everythin possible to do. [advise is in diets i like if yu wana check out what i did] since last year i last over 55 lbs!! yes i was able to lose weight now im a size 5-6! wen i used to be 12-14! my goal now is to weight 115. dha only problem is dat now im bulimic, i only vomit if i eat a big meal.dis illness started wen i was 12 then i stop and now after losing weight i started again i kno i kno its a horrible habit, losing so much weight has made me so competitive and i cant accept gettinq fat agian. . I would like to stop this before someone in my family finds out. my goal for feb. is to weight 115 ultimate goal 110.

well losing so much weight have made me a total diff person. i feel better about myself, around people, even around my boyfriend hes been with me throughout this whole process. i feel comfortable when we having sex i used to hate getting naked in front of him. i hated going to the beach. not to even mention i didnt own a pair of shorts or skirts lol. now i wear what ever i want. i can actually go in a store find a kute pair of jeans nd not try them on in the fitting room and go home and try them on and ACTUALLY fit me. i know i look soo much better now people dont reconize me anymore. but i do plan on losing more weight.

Im really glad i was able to accomplish this goal i been having since i was 12 yrs old. i hope all of you struggling to lose weight can find help with my story and take my advise it may seem super hard to lose weight but in reality it all depends on you and your will to help yourself.

i am 15, and i am a singer... and am training for a competition.. singing and acting is basically my entire life

I am 19, a full-time college student. My major is chemistry. I also have a part-time job and I am a full-time mom. I just had my first baby ( a little girl) on December 5th, and I want my body back. Overall, I want to return to my pre-pregnancy weight. I want to regain muscle in my abs (Get rid of the flab/baby pouch). I also want to tone up the rest of my body especially my butt, thighs, and pecks (my boobs sag now from breast-feeding). Basically, I want to look good in a bikini again.

i am 17 years old i just had my son a month ago. i weigh about 138 and i want to get back down to 105. that is my ultimate goal but for now i will just be happy to make it to 110-115

I am sweet, charming, and very engertic

I just graduated, and at the moment have a ton of free time that I'm not sure what to do with. I work in a restaurant, which makes it difficult to eat when I'm working, because I don't get breaks during my shift. I am finding it difficult to lose weight, partly because of my eating habits, but partly because of my partying and drinking habits. I need a diet that will allow me to drink sometimes without gaining weight. And I need to score up the motivation to go to the gym every day, and ride my bike instead of driving my car.

I'm 18 and a High School senior, south of Boston. I dont feel comfortable the way i look in clothes, ive gained some weight over the past year, i eat way to much, and i want to look good in my graduation dress!

I'm 16 5'2 and 140lbs. I had lost 10lbs last school year but gained it back over the summer. I'm extremely athletic and very in shape which makes loosing weight hard. I look thin but I want to be back to my 130lbs where I was last year.

I am 18 years old and a senior in high school. i'm going to college next year, but i'll be at home. i have been overweight all my life, but it seems the last few years have gotten the worst. i am a Christian and God is my life.

I am 20 years old and just graduated from college. I want to a fresh start and the first thing to do is to lose some weight!

hey. im 17 and a junior in highschool im on the swim team.outgoing.loud(sometimes) hahha love to laugh! but im tired of being the "fat friend" so we gotta change that! =D

Hey, I'm Kirsten, but I go by Kirby. I'm a vegan, and I pretty much don't eat junk food, but I tend to eat constantly. I weigh 126 lbs. and am 5'4.5. I dislike my body, and feel ashamed about it. I would love to loose weight.

I'm Michaela, and I'm 13. I'm 5 foot 6 and weigh around 170 pounds. I love babysitting, and I really like science.

I am only 19 and I have a 4 month old daughter. From being pregnant to now I have gained 100 pounds. I weigh 350 lbs and I am finally so disgusted with myself that I need to do something. My boyfriend says I look fine the way I am and that he still loves me. I don't believe him. I feel as if he's lying.

Im 19 years old and I need some help from some people that know what its like to really need to lose some weight. Im 6' 0'' 235 lbs. I really want to lose the 35 lbs because I feel like I don't belong in my family...everyone is 5' 2'' and size zeros or twos. Im a size 14. I want fit in with my family.

I'm 26 years old and tired of looking at my disgusting body

I'm currently 5'2 and a half and I weigh 156 pounds. Right now I have high cholrestoral, and I'm pretty sure I'm close to obese. I want to lower my cholesteral quickly and lose weight too.

I'm currently 5'8.5 and 160 lbs. I'm 'in the healthy range' but I used to be in much better shape before I got sick and stopped playing varsity sports. I want to be back to the activities I used to be able to do, at the same level I used to do, mainly running. So far I've avoided the 'freshman 15' at college (wooot!), I'm hoping maybe I can do like a reverse freshman 15 =D but it's getting hard when you barely have time to sleep, let alone exercise and the cafeteria's cupcakes look better than the food. o.0

Im a fat 17 year old senior in high school. Im looking to lose weight and really increase my self esteem. All my (thin) friends have boyfriends and girlfriends and I have never dated anyone. I want to change myself, that means changing how I look and the friends I have. It just made all of them start dating eachother ("I was the fifth man out"...) (among other drama hehe, high school...) that made me relize I didnt need them to be happy and I need to change my surroundings. I guess it helps that I will be starting college next year but I dont want to be the old me who wears sweat shirts every day and stays at home friday nights and watches Ghost Wisperer. So ya... :) that about it.

I am a 43 years old. I have 3 children Derek-20, Danielle-17, Hannah-6. I have been married 21 years collectively. !0 years with my older two kids dad and 11 years with my youngest childs dad. I manage a website that brokers house plans.

I'm 18, a senior in high school. I'm a mother to a beautiful two year old named Anna. I have a wonderful husband named Jeffrey, who's very supportive in any decision I make. After high school I plan to become a kindergarten teacher. Some of my passions are reading, and going to church.

I'm 17years old i got all the confidence i need with the chunk i got but now its time for a change in weight. I'm my your average girly girl, i weigh 215lbs and im not proud of it but i know i can lose it. i got the style like any other girl i say nothing stops me from wearing what i know whats in. i just wanna step in a room and yell i did it because i know i can ....

I am 17 years old. I love music. I play guitar alot and I am very sarcastic and funny. I wouldnt consider myself super fat, but I am just not where I would like to be! I am excited to be with people that will support me and I can help you out to!

18 year old girl, 5"7, probably 125-130 pounds. I got down to 112 at one point, but then gained it all back because of stress->binging. Don't like my new body >:/ I also love Hindi movies and Kings of Leon. I'll add to this eventually!

im 17 years old I have a 14month old baby girl. Her name is Nevaeh. She is my life. Basically I wasn't skinny before I got pregnant so im definetely not skinny now. Before I became pregnant I was 15years old 5'2 and 150 lbs now im 17years old 5'2 and 170lbs. I hate looking this way im very depressed person and just thinking about how I look and how it makes me feel drives me nuts. My boyfriend even told me I should lose about 30lbs or so. I feel ugly. I can't wear the clothes I want to wear because I look rediculous in them. I have tried dieting but I can't ever follow through with it. I start out and for about 3 days I do everything perfect but after that I start forgeting or getting lazy or craving something im not supposed to eat. I have leg perthese diseas(look it up) it is a hip defect and it is very painfull for me to do any kind of exersize I can't ride a bike I can't run I can't even sit with my legs crossed. I have had this problem since I was 11 years old. Basically there is no known cure for it that won't result in me either having multipul surgeries or not using my leg ever again. Its really made it hard for me to exersize not to mention im always busy with my daughter feeding her, changing her, playing with her, cleaning up after her and my boyfriend, cooking. All of the normal things I am required to do everyday alone wears me out more then most because of my leg problem. I also have mild asthma so if I walk upstairs not only does me being out of shape make it very hard but Im also unable to breath half the time. Its very fustrating. I tried taking diet pills and just doing things like swimming but I realized I can't always go swimming actually I hardly ever had time to do any activities like that. I live in alaska so there isn't much options expecially in the winter. Here it is very small. This town has maybe...maybe a thousand people in it. There is nothing to do its cold its rainy or snowy and very boring. There is a park here but its small. In the summer when it warms up a bit more I could go for short walks with my daughter but thats about it. Basically I feel hopeless. Its really starting to get to me. Im obsessing about it and it makes my days hard to go through cuz im constantly thinkig im so fat, im so ugly, I wish i could just lose the weight, its not fair and It bothers me so much I break down into tears. I do not like looking or feeling like this it isn't fair because I would probably have no problem exersizing if I could actually do it without breaking my leg everytime. sex with my boyfriend is embarrasing and I cant enjoy it because im too busy thinking of how I look. Then theres the commercials on t.v ( are you over weight, does body fat acumulate all over your body and you look like a giant ball of blubber? well for only millions and millions of dollars you can be skinny and pretty, oh by the way side effects include ulcer, seizures, bleeding, oh yeahh and sometimes death. Well sometimes is too many times for me NO THANKS. Plus im not rich I can't a for jenny craig or weight watchers and I dont hardly have time to stay on a shcedule basically my daughter makes my schedule for me. I need to think of something to help me before I go insane there has to be some other way to lose weight without starving myself or puking all the time. I havent done that yet but Im on the verge of trying it if I don't figure something out soon. So please if you can help let me know.

over-wieght teen who needs help to get and stay motiavated to exericse...

I am a junior in high school and I love school, drumline, and music. I do not like leaving things half-done, yet, Iosing weight is something I struggle with. I am trying out for the tenor spot on my school's drumline this season. (Tenors are the heaviest drums - they weigh 45 pounds!) When I looked at the calendar and saw how close the auditions (and band camp) are and when I had a major clothes dilemma this morning (nothing even fit right to go work out in!), I knew I had to get serious about losing weight. I dug myself into a rut over the course of 2-3 years, now it's time to get out and stay out.

Other than my weight issue, I love music & film. I want to be a glamorous hollywood actress. So i gotta be fit!

My name is Lilyan. I am 19 and currently live in San Diego, California. I love to have fun and enjoy the company of friends and family. I am 5'7 and 135.

My name is Sarah and I am 18 years old.I love anime, Martial Arts cooking and singing.

I'm 15 years old, 10th grade, 5'9, and as of 11.24 148.6 lbs. I play tennis, softball, and piano. I'm a crazy perfectionist, and not having a beautiful just 'okay' figure tends to get on my nerves. I'm a health freak already, the only thing that gets me is those holidays, sleepovers, or things that come up that stop me from eating healthy. The next big on is Thanksgiving, and I'm really praying I don't gain a lot of weight. I want to be 125 by New Years, so I can start of 2010 with confidence. My stomach is almost completely flat, except for that tiny pocket below the belly button that is really stubborn. Most of my weight is centered in my butt, especially the inside and outside of thighs, and I do have a little bit of love handles that I want to get rid of. Mostly my legs are my main focus, and I certainly cannot stand my 'pear' shape. My main problems tend to be sugar and bingeing, so trying to moniter that has beenr eally difficult.

in colllege and wanna look good!

My name is marisela im 19 years old from california. I currently work and am looking foward to going to college this summer. Ive been overweight most of my life or at least felt that way.

I am on the elite volleyball team at my school. i am captain of the basketball team(also elite) i run the 4X4's, long jump, and do shot-put on our school track team. I play extremely competitive softball and have been since i was about 5 years old. i love to hang out with my friends and boyfriend. i am 5 foot 6 inches tall and i weigh 153 and my goal is to weigh between 120 and 130 by may 27th(last day of school!!! ) i want to be able to say "I am not fat(no one has ever called me fat except my brother,mom, and step dad) and I am proud of how my body looks and i feel GREAT in my body and nothing can change that." but i have alot of work to do.. My best friend supports me in whatever i do and she doesn't think i should be on here right now but she just wants me to be happy.

I'm thirteen and I'm 5'5 and weight 160 lbs. I want to get down to 120-130 by summer gym time in June.

My name is Kristyn, I am 18 years old, and i just graduated high school. I am currently 5'7 and 211 lbs and I have just been diagnosed as pre-diabetic. 2 years ago, when i was 16, i weighed around 165 lbs, and back then i felt i needed to loose 20 lbs. And now i would kill to be that weight again. I really don't have much support around me, even though my mother needs to loose weight as well, she never does anything to loose weight, she consistently says she is going to do something, but it never happens. and my friends really have no intention of loosing weight either. I've been eating the same way i was back then, and it caught up with me. I need to get motivated so i can get healthy again.

Hi! My Name is Liv. I am 19 years old. I am 5 ' 6 and currently weight 215. My goal weight is 125. I will be a sophmore in college this year. I came here because i need a support group, or even a mentor to help me through this long journey that i have ahead of me. I wasnt always obese. Ever since i was about 8 i was taking a medicine called Adderall, for my ADD. Four years ago, my doctor decided to take me off of it.i just started compulsively eating. Adderall substaines your appitite, so when you dont take it you feel like you are starving all the time! To add on to that, some personal things were happening to me and my family so that didnt help either. Unfortuantly, i am an emotional eater. I am still having struggles in my life. But lets face it, who doesnt. I hope that everyone here can in some way inspire and help me on my quest to be healthy, fit, and loving life again!!!! love, Liv :)

I am 18 years old, but I feel like a middle-aged woman in weight-loss years! I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am going to college next year.

Im a 15 year old girl, im 5 foot 8 inches and i've always been mildly overweight, but i really want to change! so i joined peertrainer and im hoping to get suppourt from girls like me:)

Im a very busy girl and almost never have time to squeeze in a workout (thats my big problem!)

My name is Lex, im 19 years old. I weigh around 225-230 lbs. I have a passion for music as well as animals. I've been struggling with my weight and trying to lose weight for a long time. I am a confident person, but my weight has been getting to me and it seems like no matter what I do I can't lose weight, it just won't come off. I would really like to lose weight for me although my girlfriend and friends tell me im not. I just want to feel comfortable in my skin.
