Teen weight loss group?

Quote  |  Reply
I couldn't find any groups that specifically included teens who want to lose weight, so I wanted to see if there was anyone else interested. I'm 16, about 140 and I want to get down to at least 120. Anyone else in the same boat?

heyy... i wouldn't normally do this but i thought some support would be nice. i'm 5'4 and 145 and 17 and I want to get down to 128. Its hard when my friends tell me I am not fat and they roll their eyes when I try to eat healthy. I have a hard time going out to eat with them and staying to my diet. I am doing this because I want to lose weight and keep it off, not just crash diet for a week then gain it back, etc. its hard not having friends support, litterally i would die if they saw i was writing on this but its nice to know i'm not alone
Hey, I'm 17, I'm 5'2" and currently 134lbs and my goal is around 110lbs. I lost 41lbs on Weight Watchers when I was 14 and got down to 117, and I'd like to be a bit less than that =) My goal is August 8th!
Hey im 16 too i am 5'4 and im 118 but want to get to 110 :D
I guess I'm old! I'm 19, and in college... well I'm currently at 166 at 5'7. You guys might think this sounds like a lot, but I started at 210 so I'm improving! I want to get to 160 by May 11th (last day of school) and then work towards 150. I seem to set my goals in 10 lb increments. It seems to work though. ;)
I'm 18, 5'0" and 155 down from 159. :) Appldinger, we can be old together. *grin* My goal is 115-120 by August. I've been wanting to lose weight for the past few years, and I guess I'm finally ready to make a change.

Hi... Im 4'11 and I am about 120lbs I want to get down to 100 for the summer. Because I am a short person people think that I am thin, I am not really thin just small. Since most of you are also in the 5foot-5.5foot range I think you know what I am talking about, hight vs. weight wise.
Heyy :] I'm 16 :]

I'm 5"2! Started off at 154 pounds (which is huge because I only have a small frame) and I am now hovering around 133pounds.

I would like to get down to about 120 for the summer and then about 110 after that :]
hey, i'm turning 15 in 7 days. I weigh about 110 and are 5'2". I'm not really here for weightloss, more to just maintain the weight, eat healthy, and tone up.

Because last year when I was only 5'1" I weighed around 135 lbs. I didn't really pay attention to it at first. But then one day I realized I wasn't healthy and I wasn't happy with myself. So I decided to make a change and take control of my life. I began eating healthier and exercising more. I managed to lose about 24 lbs. That summer, I debuted a bikini for the first time and everyone was pretty much like "Woah, where did that come from?" haha. it fluctuated, but through sports I lost a few more.

good luck to everybody!

hey, im 17, 5'7, 155 lbs. im hoping to get to 135 or 130 by the end of June and lose more or just maintain that throughout the summer. mostly i just want to get to 140 for grad at the beginning of June so i can feel confidant and have a good time!

:) good luck
I'm 17, 5'3.5" and I weigh 141. I used to be 165, but I have lost 24 lbs since January. My goal weight is 125, but I might stop earlier. I would really like to get into a 6 and I am now at a 10. We had prom Thursday and I got to show off my new HOT body in a killer dress. Yeah, just kidding but I did get a lot compliments about how good I looked so it is some good motivation. I wish you guys the best of luck and I know ya'll are gonna do awesome.
I'm 14, 5' 11", male, and I weight 155 lbs. I used to be 165 but I lost these pounds during a crash diet I went on while deseperate which diet to choose. It was a good motivation to see my friends and family notice it, I never had a noticable overweight, but a belly, and I want to get it flattened. BTW: Am I the only guy here?

heyy im 15 and 5'3" i weigh 154.5 lbs i hate my weight right now because i am so limited when it comes to physical activites. i need to slim down to at least 120 before june 3 because im going on a trip to the beach. i have always had troubles with my weight and have gone on many crash diets that work until summer rolls around and b/c im out of school i eat ALOT. i kno that in order to get down to 120 by june i will have to work really hard but i need to loose some weight for my health also. thanks

yeah im 15, 5'8" and about 160. i hate it. i want to lose some more of this baby fat! my goal is 140 asap. but i want to be more toned and confident in a bathing suit this summer! less than 2 more months! is anyone else trying the special k diet? i really like it. and i just realized that fruits arent as low in calories as i always thought! good luck everyone!


Hey!  I'm 16, 5'4, well, almost :) and 140 lbs down from 146.  I'm taking it slow, one pound per week, but it's gone perfectly since the beginning of March.  Slow is perfect for me, because I can always reach my goal so I don't get frustrated and quit!
141 pounds, my goal weight is about 125-130 range

But I have sososo much trouble keeping up with my diet on the weekends, even if they are full with plans.
Okay, nowhere close to a teen...b/c i'll be the big 4-0 this year, but I just wanted to pop in and say I am soooo proud of y'all for starting this post!  Y'all will be great motivation for each other!

Have a great day!
ok I'm a girl about to turn 15, i'm 5'2, and i'm at 135 right now. Just 6 months ago i was at 118, and happy with everything, but now i'm back up to this weight and i can't fit into any of my clothes anymore. I was in wrestling from december to feb. and after that i gained all of the weight i lost back, and plus more. I'm so anxious to lose it all in one week, but i understand it's going to take awhile to get back to where i was. I want to wrestle at 110 next year, so I want to get back on track and be healthy & happy again. I need tips!!
yeah, i am 16 and 105-107 lbs, 5'6". i guess i sound skinny but i am not that fit so i look like i weigh more. i really just want to be fit and hard, not flubby like i feel now! anyone else feeling unmotivated???
