I'm 5'10.5, 172 pounds, and a size 10/12. I would like to be 155....and guess what? My boyfriends a good 5 inches shorter than me!! :P We've gotten a few looks here and there...he's not a skinny guy though, but one of my weight loss motivations is to look slimmer 'cause for some reason I think it would make the height difference more forgiving?

I'm 5'9 (wish I was 5'10) and weigh around 146/147. I love being tall =) I honestly wish I would have done modeling...when I was in high school I used to get approached a lot by modeling agency scouts (near school, the mall, even the LIBRARY! lol) I never pursued b/c my dad was so strict and he wouldn't allow me to. I wish I didn't listen to him tho...oh well too late now =/

Anyways...I currently wear a 7/8 but sizing is weird b/c I have two other pairs of jeans that are 7/8 and one is wayyy too lose and the other fits but is kinda tight (i get love handles with those)....can't wait till i fit a 3/4...I think I may have to re-evaluate once I get to 135...maybe 125-130 dunno yet..we shall seee

I'm 5'9", and right now, I weigh a little over 150. I wear maybe a size 12? I have a very small frame, and I carry my weight weird. =P So I'm hoping to get to 125-135... leaning towards 125. People often tell me it's really tiny, but I have such a small frame that weight shows badly.

Wow, I have to say, your weight loss is really motivating, from one tall girl to another! I've never seen a size 7/8 before, though, even at 135. I dunno how you do that, but it's awesome!

Hey girls, I am 6'0 and currently weigh 262. I totally understand not feeling comfortable in your body, I have been like that for a long time. A year ago it was just too much, and to this day I just feel not comfortable no matter what I am wearing. I also have never liked being tall. But I think it's because I have ALWAYS been overweight. My goal weight is 160. 102 pounds to go.

I hear you erin, when you are tall and overweight you feel like a giant! I have a sister who is 5'5" and literally 110 lbs...standing next to her I just want to cry because I am so much bigger than she is. I think I will always feel fat next to her though. IDK what it is but she has never really had a weight problem I envy her and really don't EVER want to stand next to her. I feel enormous sitting next to her in a car too!

Hey Ladies. I totally understand. 5'11 and 350 (as of like 4 days ago). But like all of you, I would love to go down smaller, to feel comfortable in my own skin. Hugs and best of luck to all of us

i'm 5'9 and currently with 192 pounds. last year i reached my goal and got to 148 but i didn't liked it, my body is really weird. i have really long torso and short legs and big booty and really small boobs. in the end i gained most of it back with binging and now i just want to loose another 22-24 pounds to get to around 170. i like my figure now i just want to tone it up a little more. and lose the belly and hanging butt oh and the back fat.i feel like all my newly gained weight went to my back and stomach. ://
sometimes little more is better. i wish to be little curvy but with my weird proportios it's gonna be hard.

Hi Ladies! I'm 5'9" currently at 189... I had lost down to 153 last year in April but freaked out and gained some back. Now I'm on my way back down for the last time! I love being tall and wish I had at least another inch, heck I wear heels most of the time! lol. In sizing... I'm currently like a 12, but at my low of 153 I was a solid 6. My goal now is 150 flat. I'd like to lose just a little under 150 because people suggest a weight range and I'd like to never be over 150 again (unless I'm pregnant, haha).
