Default Sick, but still losing!

It's been pretty quiet on this thread.

I'm hanging in there, losing weight slowly but surely! I've been sick since Saturday, and although I've still been eating small meals, I'm concerned that I will gain once I'm over this cold/virus.

I hope you all are doing well!

Chrztina- ughh being sick is the worst. It makes me want to curl up and eat comfort food all day. Glad you have more willpower than me hehe

j0lamo- HI! Are you starting at 176? that's almost where i was when i started too. Even a small amount of weight makes a big difference on us shorties

My first week on my diet was horrible -- I restricted my calories at the beginning of the week, and ended up binging towards the end of the week, so i ended up being almost 160 when I had an initial weigh in at the gym I just joined. So, I changed my goals slightly, considering the weight gain. So now I have almost 50 lbs to lose.

But last week was better. And this week is going great (although I ate way too many Chinese candies yesterday), I even made it to the gym Sun, Mon, Wed and today. So excited. I can't wait for my weigh in on Monday!!!!!!

How's everyone else doing?

Hi everyone, mind if I join in? I'm 5'2 and I often become jealous over taller people's weight goals. I want to be able to be at a normal weight at 160lbs, it would give me less to lose!

Default New here and saying Hi!

I am so happy to have found this group. I never join anything on the internet but as I am getting older (just turned 40) I find that being under 5 feet tall is becoming such a novelty to other people around me! There is so much more to me than my height (or others' perceived lack of). Also, I have been on hormone replacement therapy for over 2 years now and find that maintaining a "normal" weight is nearly impossible and losing is beyond an uphill battle. I feel like Sisyphus, doomed to forever roll the rock uphill only to have it roll back down again, except my rock is these same 10 pounds. What further frustrates me is the whole BMI thing - I started off on a weight loss regime on January 23rd. At the time, I was 126.5 pounds. According to the BMI, at 4'11" I was overweight. I have worked hard to get down to my current weight of 121 and now I am just within the "healthy" range, but on the high side of it. I know that I am short but holy cow! Even at 126 pounds, I still wore a 6 petite, yet was "overweight." I know, I know. The BMI is meant to be a health indicator, not looks or vanity, but it still hit me hard. I know that I probably will not look the way I did when I was 25 and 103 pounds but I think 115 or so is realistic. Yet, it still seems a heavy goal weight to me at just under 5 feet tall. Thanks for letting me vent and let me know what you guys think of a realistic goal weight!

Smile we can do this!

Hi. I'm 5'2" & people think I'm nutty because I am concerned about 4lbs that found me..again. 4lbs means pants might not fit. So I've tossed the Nutella & drk choc PB - too dangerous to have in house. I am prepping soups & meals - I will look hot this summer!

Add me to the mix! I am only 5'2" and every pound shows! I had been maintaining my loss at 115...then gained a few pounds last summer and am still struggling to get back to 115. I look and feel better there than at my present 120-123 pounds! Every day is a battle!

I think I might be the shortest one here, I'm 4'10.5 lol, have to count every little bit!

This is my 2nd week of this new lifestyle. I'm not dieting, I'm eating healthy, exercising every day, and feeling incredible! I have a long way to go, but this time it's different. I have a huge support group and my attitude is different.
