Okay, first I have to admit that I am not 5 foot like my profile says. I am really only maybe 4'11 but that might be pushing it a bit. For years I have been in the habit of replying to people when they ask how tall I am that I am 5 foot. It's such a habit that I don't really think about it any more but now you all know the truth.
That being said, my lowest weight ever -- when I was 21 was 85 pounds. I am nearly 50 now and know I will never even be close to that.
I wonder if short chicks --- especially short old chicks have a harder time losing. I can tell you that it really has been a struggle for me. I can consume 12-1400 calories and be very active and not lose a pound for months.
Also, I really think that on a short body every pound is much more visible. There is just no where to hang those pounds.
Also, there is the problem finding clothes that fit. There is so little space between my bust and my waist that I can't even wear stuff that taller women wear because the waist of the skirt or pants comes half way up my middle.
The other day one of my students asked me why I don't wear skirts. I had to tell her that it is because skirts make me look like a fire hydrant with shoes. Sadly, this is the truth because my calves are so muscular that I really do look just like a fire hydrant
