I'm 5'3''....

My weight 1 year back: 150lbs
My weight now : 127lbs
My goal weight : 120lbs

I was on a 150lbs a year back and had tried out many weight loss programs and diet. But nothing worked for me and I was weary. I happened to see this video on youtube which was outstanding from other weight loss videos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHVdHYeDHC0

I learned from the video on how to eat in the right combinations including my favorite chocolates, cheese burgers and turn my body into a fat-burning mode (the video says smile ). I started following the video tips and advices and exercised at least 6 days a week. And yes it worked for me and I lost 23 lbs in a year. I'm still following my diet, eating out in the right way and doing normal exercises and giving a flip to my exercise once in 2 weeks, so that I'm not lazy in carrying out my exercise. I do cycling, swimming and will give a flip to some other work outs the coming week.

And I know how hard it is to cross the plateau stage as I'm also in the same boat, but I strongly believe that we can break this ice burg if we restrict our calories from growing high from the current calorie count and better if we intake less calorie than the count we intake now.

According to my body weight I can take a maximum of 1800calories a day. But now I don't lemme go upto this 1800 calories a day and maintain a less calorie count. But I don't have to give up any meal or even I do snacking in between every meal. What I do is I include in my each meal a combination of slow carbs, fast carbs and protein, so that my body doesn't store fat. I got all these awareness from the video I mentioned above.

All the best dear. We can cross the plateau stagesmile

5"2', aiming to reduce my body weight to 100 pounds.
May 14, 2013 7:14 AM
<<<<<<< Made goal weight then started eating what I calculated my TDEE was PLUS my fitbit adjustment. Walk 4 mph 5.5 miles or run 3 miles per day.

Oh yeah, my diet consists of 95% unprocessed or refined foods. To be honest, I can not believe I look like this at almost 45 years old. I have been at it for 5.5 years, seeing a big improvement when I incorporated regular exercise 3 years ago but this body came about after I started eating clean 6 months ago. Ya'll can scream about all the scientific evidence you want, the way I look and feel is all the evidence I need to know I am doing the right thing for my body.

5'2&3/4"

previously lost 51 lbs from 189 down to 138. I looked great at goal weight and stayed like that for years. Maintenance wasn't really hard for me. I had lot's of physical therapy to go to since I was injured at the time, but really I've just always been a healthy eater who will eat healthy around 80% of the time anyways.

Wow, excellent! Great inspiration. You look fantastic.

I am also 5'3 and started at 162. This was just a little over 2 months ago and I have gotten to 149. I am super excited and can't wait to lose more!!
I just added cardio and workout classes that r offered at the gym. Cut out all flour, pastas, juice, soda, and as much sugar as I can.

I tried to add a picture but don't know how.

I'm 5'2. this is my second attempt at getting my weight down. I started my journey three years ago at 140 and started walking, then running and eventually running and doing bootcamps. 1.5yrs later i weighted 118 pounds and looked and felt amazing. So i ran in a marathon where i hurt my knee. I was fortunate to have no serious damage but had to stop working out for 6 months. 6 months turned into a year and i have gained all my weight back.

I started working out again 2 months ago with the attitude that if i went to the gym everyday the results would follow. My workouts started with slow walks for 30min, then i moved to the elliptical for 30min, then i added weights and now i do cardio for an hour and weights for 30min, 5 days a week. I dropped two pant sizes and i feel amazing. Results do not happen over night. You need to show up and put in the work. Also take care of your body, eating lots of fruit, veggies, whole foods and hydrate. Get your friends involved- you will keep each other on track. Don't quit on yourself. If you put in the time you will see results! That's a fact!

SW- 140
CW- 133
GW- 115

After that, I have spent the last few years reshaping my body through weight training. I reduced 95% of the cellulite on the back of my legs, have excellent muscle tone on my arms, and am in the best shape of my life at 35 years old. YOU CAN DO IT!

I dont know how to post pictures here but I'm 5'3" and the heaviest I got to was 158lbs. I got down to 128lbs by just rotating jillian micheals dvds and eating clean about 80% of the time. It took about a year and a half. I have done other programs since then like les mills pump, chalean extreme, half of jillians body revolution. Right now I just started insanity.

I'm 5'3.25 and 139.8

I started at 175.

I got down to 130 about 4 years ago. I was a size 6/5. I was pretty skinny and felt good there. Fast forward a year: I went back up to 155. Started eating healthy again and got down to 148. Was constantly stuck at 148-146 for a long time. For two years I've been between 143-148. I've gotten down to 142 and then I'd go back up to 145, I've probably done that at least 12 times by now.

Now, I am running 5 miles again (what I did before when I lost the weight), and it's coming off pretty fast. Getting into 130s has been amazingly hard, but FINALLY there.


Except tomorrow is my birthday so that screws it all up, but I could probably eat a few more calories and not have all my results vanish. I am super proud of myself for FINALLY getting below the 140s. I look so good at 135, and that's when all the last few inches come off on my waist and my arms.

I guess everyone is different? Just weird since we are around the same height. I can't imagine it being healthy for me to be in the low 120s or it looking good. :/
