I needed to see this, I find it's harder to relate to the people trying to lose like 75 lbs, but this was inspiring. Thank you. P.S. You do not look 41, you look like you could pass for my age (21).

Oh we're out here alright :)

I lost about 25-30 lbs over a year and a half ago and have been maintaining that weight since. I'm currently working on toning up and defining, losing maybe another 5 lbs or so.


Starting weight: 130-135
Current weight: 109
Goal weight: 103-105

I'm a little over the range you're looking for. I'm 5'2" and 27 years old. This thread has been awesome, though. It's great seeing all shorty success stories!

My highest weight was 265. I'm currently 252(ish). My goal weight at this time is 150. Although I'm short, I have a heavier bone structure than most petite women. I think that 130 would be the lowest I would try to go, but I'd be quite happy to reach 150. I haven't seen that weight since I was 18 years old and pregnant with my first daughter. I've really let life get the better of me over the past 9 years.

I'm 4'9" (and a 1/2 ;) ) My highest was about 174 when I was pregnant with my daughter. After I had her I was 164. As of this morning I'm 148.6. 120 is my first goal and we'll see how I feel from there. So, I still have about 30 pounds to go... But you better believe its coming OFF!

Hi I am 4"11 started 7/2011 at 230lbs lost 13.6 by Dec. I probably for sure would have lost more but I slacked off so I deleted my account and started 1/2012 at 216.4lbs so far I have lost an additional 5lbs whoo hoo. My first mini goal is to be at 175lbs by the end of May. That will be a total of 55lbs 1/2 the weight I need to lose and then next goal is to reach 120 by the end of the year. Add me shorties!!

Hi. I'm 5'1". Was at my heaviest in October at 206; started MFP jan 10th at 198 and down to 187-189 depending on one of two scales I use. I would love to be 118, but even if I get there I don't know that I can maintain that. I carry most of my weight in my chest (DDD depending on the bra and even when I weighed 104, still always DD), then my lower stomach - had five hernia's repaired in 2003 and the bottom part of my stomach being full of mesh, well, it's not a good thing. Plus, having pro-lapse, I'm not able to do lunges, scrunches or anything that causes me to bear down. But I'm doing Bob Harper's weight loss yoga DVD, walking, and a bit of eliptical and having success.

Well, I'm 4'9" and currently at 109. My goal is 98 -- my college weight -- although I think I could get down to 93 which I did by doing Body for Life 7 years ago. My body fat was 19%, I was in the best shape of my life!

The most I weighed was after I had my third baby, I weighed in at 140. I didn't gain as much with #4, been working my way down from 128, but got stuck at 108 and started gaining last fall. I hit 114 and realized that I didn't want to keep gaining.

I have to really be careful about binge eating and other bad habits, so I carefully meal plan and try to stick to 800-1200 calories a day (I'm on the spike plan, so I go low 6 days a week and then have a free day one day a week).

I'm 5'2" and approx 157lbs. I gained a lot during my pregnancy. My baby is now 16 months and I am determined to lose all the baby weight I gained. I also carry my weight on my butt, hips, thighs and a little on my stomach... My goal is to get to 125-130.
I've started working out, it's exhausting. I love this site, it really helps me!

Hey! Me too! Exactly! I am 5'2 " and this morning I weighed 157.04. Blech. Add me as a friend and I promise to be a great cheer leader for you! I cant even blame it on my babies because they are so dang old (13,18,22)! I even have a grandson! (can I blame the grand baby weight?lol) I joined last month and have lost 6 pounds. the 120's is thinner than I want to be ... I think I look best in the 130's.... My mother was also 5'2" but she was hovering around 110 and that was a healthy weight for her.... Good Luck to All of us Shawties!!

I will gladly be your cheeleader and supporter! too bad the weight loss isnt as much fun as the weight gain, right? I will tell you, my biggest problem is the fact that i love to cook and eat! Plus, i have married into a huge family and we alllll love to get together for meals! we celebrate everything- kids got a good grade? party! football? party! cousing promoted? party! Auntie new car? party! it goes on and on! lol! And on top of it all, I am NO athelete and I do NOT like running (unless its to a shoe sale or the ice cream man)

I am 5`1 and 25 years old. I started a few months ago and lost a few pounds then injured my knee and now I can't really exercise very much due to my injury. During the first month or so of my injury when I was on crutches and couldn't really walk at all I gained back the weight I lost and then some. I am walking now but I am restricted for a while so my knee can heal. I am currently at my heaviest (205lbs) and would love to lose about 50lbs. I have a hard time staying within my calorie allowance because I work full-time, go to grad school part-time, and help my husband with his master's thesis. We have a lot of late nights and most of the time don't feel like cooking. I have previously lost 40lbs on WW but gained it back after my wedding 2 years ago. I need some advice on how to stay on track with my calories and on different exercises I can do that will help me lose the weight.

Hi i'm 5 feet. I started my weight loss journey at 162 and I am currently 144. My goal was orginally 145. I now set a new goal at 135. I don't want to get any smaller than that.
