Default Calling all shorties who are up for progress pics! (5'0-5'3)

Hi guys! I am just under 5'3 and I am currently 146 pounds. I started at 158. I have never been skinny... The smallest I've ever been is around 128 and that was years ago. I can never remember having a flat stomach and I have never actually worn a bikini even as a teenager because of my stomach. As a mom to two children I hate being in pictures because I am so unhappy with the way I look in them. I don't want to live my life on the sidelines anymore. I was hoping to start a thread for shorter girls where we can show progress pictures. I am always so inspired when I see the results of people with a similar size and shape to me. Is anyone game?? My end goal is 115 pounds.

Hey there, Your story sounds very similar to mine. I'm currently at 149lbs and 5"2. I've never been much lower than 128lb, but I feel good at that weight as I think I'm naturally quite muscular and large boned. I'm trying to deal with a lot of body hate at the moment - feeling terrible about myself... Trying desperately at the moment to bring myself down to a healthier weight. My weight really creeps up in times of stress or when I get out of routine. I have a bit of a mini goal because I'm off on a beach holiday in July for three weeks. I know that you can't achieve too much in three months, but I can at least use it for motivation and hopefully feel a bit better about myself. I've set a goal to loose 1 lb per week, which should take me to about 135lb in July. It seems doable, but right now, at week number 1, I am feeling very down about it. I joined up at the gym and doing those classes, surrounded by mirrors, I am really confronted with just how big I look - I never think of myself as big - the mirrors are showing me the truth! Hopefully, in the next few months, looking after myself by exercising daily and trying to cut out a lot of the sugary stuff - even if I don't make that goal, I will be feeling better....I'm not sure how brave I feel right now about posting a picture - might need to work up the courage.

So what are those of us who are 4'11 or under, chopped liver?!

I'm probably not up for progress pics, but I am cheering you all on.

All shorties are welcome, esofia ��
I am down to 141 now....I am not losing weight fast fast as I had hoped for, but it is coming off slowly but surely. I have dropped from a size 10 to a size 8 pants. I have not gone on any kind of crazy diet, I have just cut down my portion sizes and I avoid fatty foods.I am also training for a 10K with the couch to 10K program and I am on week 10! It is so nice to bust out my older jeans that are used to wear back in the 130s! It might be slow but it is working! Don't give up!
