I am 5'1", and my goal weight is 120, I will see what I can get to.

My lowest weight was 98 lbs(in HS)-but I didn't have boobs then, now that I have them, they seem to be sticking around, even after a 25 lb weight loss.


Same here! When I started I had 26 pounds to loose but I think I am down 8 pounds in 3 weeks (I will know tomorrow)

I'm 5'2", currently 136 lbs. Lowest weight was 110lbs 5 years ago. My goal is to get back to 110lbs!
February 3, 2013 3:54 PM
I'm 5'. My current weight is 172. My goal is 115. At first my goal was just to get to 128, so that I could say I was at a healthy weight. But now I'm thinking it would be nice to lose enough to have a little bit of room to fluctuate.

I'm 5ft 2...my goal is 119 lbs. I seem to be stuck at 126/128. I just need to focus to get those last lbs off

5' 2" 125lbs 21% body fat. I would like to get my body fat percentage lower so I don't care much about what the scale tells me anymore.

Im 5' 1.5" and my first goal is to get to the teens and stay there!

SW: 147
CW: 123
GW: 114

And in my dreams I think it would be amazing to get to 110.

Ive never been under 118 and definitely felt there was room for improvement even at that weight.

Feel free to add me :)

I am 5' 2" and currently weigh 145 pounds, and I hope to get down to around 130 pounds or lower.
More imporantly I want to make lifestyle changes to ensure that I am can stay healthy and maintain my weight. smile

Im 5ft and currently 140lbs (well hopefully a pound or two less, weighing in tomorrow).
I was 182 pounds when I had my little boy, he was 9lb 14oz , he's 8 months old now.

My goal is 126lbs. I know that is still at the high side of BMI but I will never be a skinny person, I never was. I have very broad shoulder having being a gymnast and a swimmer for years.

I have a serious arm issue aswell, I hate my upper arms.

But since joining mfp Ive read about strenght training and definition etc so I think when I get closer to my goal I'll start with more strength training.

I'm 5'2 and as silly as it sounds my goal weight is 140-160 (I'll figure it out when I get there) :) I've been 125 in my life and I honestly like how I look when I'm around 160 vs. what I'm "supposed" to weigh! That's totally a personal choice, though, and I'm not dissing anyone who goes by BMI charts or anything. ❤

I'm almost 5'2" and currently 148 lbs. My goal weight is 120-125. I have a lot of muscle and I know I will never be super skinny, but I like the way I look with some curves at the 120ish range.

I am a little over 5'. My goal is somewhere in the 120s. 120 would be great, but I won't know until I get closer to my goal. I started this weightloss journey at 215 lbs. My first goal was to get to 135. once I get there I will decide how much more I want to lose. My ultimate goal is to just be a healthy and active mom that sets a good example for my kids. In the grand scheme of things that is all that really matters. Charts can say what they want, but in real life, you just have to be comfortable in your own skin.

I am 5'3 and my SW was 177, CW is 155 and I plan on being 126. I don't feel comfortable getting any smaller than that. For my body type/build I look sick when I get too small plus I enjoy having curves =)
February 5, 2013 7:04 AM
I'm 5'1, and I want to get to around 110 lbs.

5 ft 2 inches, 148. I would like to get to around 135, although I'm less focused on my weight at this point and more interested in getting fitter and stronger. I've been lurking since last July but I would like to use this for more than logging food and exercise. Fellow shorties, feel free to add me. I really would love some friends who are more interested in fitness than getting tiny.
February 5, 2013 7:50 AM
I'm 4'11. At my smallest i was 110-115 (in high school). I am now 160 and would love to get down to 120-125. That would make me happybigsmile
February 5, 2013 7:50 AM
wow! I didn't realize there were so many shorties out there. :) I am 5 feet tall, and currently weigh 124. I would love to be 110, but I think 115 may be a more reasonable goal to accommodate my boobs and my hips. ;)
February 5, 2013 7:51 AM
I'm 5'1". Current weight is 157.4. Goal weight is 130-135. Starting weight was 192.

A lot of people seem to think there is a small window of healthy weights for your height but there is actually a pretty good sized range. Those standard charts don't take into account things like body type and muscle.

I am 5ft tall and would like to be 120lbs. As of right now i am 194lbs but my starting weight was 275lbs. I know they say i should be 100lbs for my height but i honsetly could never imagen being that small. I think as long as i feel healthy and am closer to the stander number then thats all that matters.
