Red face Anyone have any photos of someone 5'3"-5'4" and between 145-125lbs?

Anyone have any photos of someone 5'3"-5'4" and between 145-125lbs?

I am trying to visualize what that weight/height range would look like to see if I am aiming for something realistic for myself..

The doctor said I don't have large bone structure or anything to prevent me from getting into the 120's with strong motivation and lots of exercise, but he also told me that the 140's would be a healthy range for me as well..

I just don't know what it looks like!

Any help greatly appreciated!

P.S. I know they have those "doll" things that some people have in their avatars, and I've tried that, but I still can't visualize with those..

I know you are probably wondering what you would look like at a certain weight, but the truth is that everyone's bodies are different. Two women can weigh the same, yet seem as though one is heavier than the other.

I would suggest focusing on what you are doing day-to-day; while it is important to have long-term goals as well, you don't need to worry about choosing a specific goal weight this early on. Take it 5-10lbs at a time! Once you are at 150lbs or so, you'll probably get a better picture of what you would look like at 130lbs.

What I can promise you, though, is that if (WHEN ) you DO get there, you will look stronger, healthier, and more confident!

That's awesome.. I remember that site from a long time ago but I could never find it again.. Very interesting!

I have photos from my previous weight loss.. But hopefully I'll lose differently this time because last time around I was left with no muscle. This time I want a more toned look so looking at my old photos won't really show me the other options.

I definitely agree, I wish I could know what I'd look like at my goal weight, but the problem is, one of the girls at work weighs 133ish, she's 5'4" and she looks honestly 115. She's SO thin but she has big boobs. I'm 138 as of this morning and 5'7", and I look at least 25lb heavier then her.

Another fun site is myvirtualmodel.com It will let you create a model that kinda looks like you, then you can adjust its weight to sorta see what you will look like at different weights!

Scorpio.. Maybe she has more muscle? There is such a thing as "skinny-fat" where you can weigh the same as someone else but look MUCH bigger (like I did last time around). I was 5'4" and 135lbs and I looked more like 160. Apparently muscle takes up less volume than fat but at the same time weighs more.. So someone with the same weight with more muscle would look much more compact than someone weighing the same but with a higher fat ratio. Apparently my fat ratio right now is 45% (gross, right?).. However, you're in the lucky condition where you could probably just weight train and you would minimize in no time like a little shrinky-dink! (I wish I would have done that at the time instead of letting myself go and getting back where I am now.. Oh well.. Builds character in my humble opinion!)

Now that I am working out my weight has begun to shift so I am loosing in my tummy most which makes the lower half of my body look larger. I have also lost weight in my shoulders which makes my upper arms look bigger.

I know it will all even out in the end...and frankly I don't want to know what I will look like when I have met my goal weight....that's half of the fun of it to me.

She was telling me how she eats like crazy (eats as late as 11pm and goes to bed around 2am everyday), eats junk food like crazy and fast food plus she doesn't work out. I think she just has a fast metabolism. She doesn't look muscular at all, just I think is naturally thin.

I do not know my body fat percentage, I'd love to find out..at this moment, I only do cardio because I can't get to the gym (no car, too far to walk, and I work midnights a lot). The thing is, I am pear shaped, so the upper half of me is quite small (range from a 36B/C depends on the bra), but the bottom half of me, especially butt and thighs are mostly all fat. You can see my ribs and collarbone which is funny because I look like a thin person from the waist up, haha.

My sisters are like that.. They make me sick! My one sister is in the low 100's at about 5'5, and my other sister is in the 110's at about 5'6".. They all eat out nearly everyday, and the low 100's one sleeps at least 12hrs. They are absolute bean poles and neither works out or appears to have muscle to them.. So unfair!

Apparently I got the "bad genes". Did you ever see that movie with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel called 'Overboard'? There's a part where she looks at the dress she's given and says "I was short AND fat?".. Describes me to a 'T'!

God only knows sometimes!

Haha, yup. My older brother is like that too. He can honestly eat a large pizza, and he gains probably 5lb at the max. in a year. He's in his early 20s about 5'9" and 140-150lb. It's sad when I was shorter and weighed more then him.

My fiancee never eats as much as me! I try to stay at 1,600 - 1,700 calories and I don't think he ever makes it to 1,200.
