Geez! I had no idea this thread was here or I'd been here a long time ago. I lie and say I'm 5' even though I'm really 4'11.75".
I completely understand what everyone has said thus far.
Lately I've been troubled because I'm realizing how much weight I'd have to lose to no longer be considered of normal weight. I see so many people setting their goal weights at 160+ but even at that weight I'd still be considered obese. It's sad.

There's this website, try it. Enter your height and weight to see other people at that height & weight. OR the weight you want to be. http://www.mybodygallery.com/

Unfortunately, there are no photos of a female 5' at 248 lbs for me to look at. But i could see what I'd look like at 120 lbs or 150 lbs. It's really cool.

Default Shortie here!

Well, hello ladies! I'm brand new around here but definitely not new to the weight loss game.

I'm 4"11 and I haven't stepped on the scale in a long time. I had my second child a year ago and I'm still carrying around the weight. All in my doing of course. I estimate I am 165, I'd say.

I'm starting Herbal Magic on Monday and will know for sure then. I did HM with my first baby and lost over 60 pounds and was in the best shape of my life. I'm such a gastronome though!

Wish me luck and nice to meet you all.

Another good week! I am down to 171 lb - only 21 lb to reach goal. Am starting to wear clothes that have been taking up space in my closet for way too long:-) Now they are beginning to fit! Will have to head out to Goodwill soon for "transition" clothes.

Congrats on your loss. I just started my journey yesterday and I am very excited to start seeing results. I weighed in at 156.4, lets see where I'm at on Monday! I think I will lose a lot of water weight first!

Hi all,

Another shorty here. I am 5' 0.6" (every inch counts).

Most of my friends weigh more than I do but they are so much taller. They always tell me I don't need to lose weight simply because I weigh less than they do. They have no idea what 5 lb. could do to a shorty. When I was at my heaviest of 147, I looked like a stumbling penguin. I hated hiding behind people and being in the back of every picture. I was 110-115 when I graduated high school and first year of college. I don't know if I can ever get back to that but I guess I'll never know if I don't try, right?

Stay strong and stay focused! You can do it! I'm keeping a positive mind and still have much to lose! Set mini goals and work towards them!

I know all about trying to hide behind others for photographs. At my height and weight, I look like a big rectangle standing there :-(. At least now I am feeling a lot better about that! My solution was to hide behind a camera and do all the picture taking. I really look forward to not trying to hide in loose fitting clothes or behind others. Since I am a senior in years (60+), it is getting harder but the health benefits are definitely worth the effort. Unfortunately, I definitely fell off the wagon this weekend and will have to work doubly hard this week - sigh.

SO happy I found this thread. Sometimes I look around 3fc and it feels like everyone is 5'9 haha. I'm actually slightly under 5'2"... but I round up. When you're short it is SO hard to disguise weight loss. I swear I gain like 2lbs and I look so much heavier. I'm pear shaped so everything goes into the hips. :'( We got our in-school checkups last year and I got a little upset about it. I told them it was my weight that bothered me. They didn't even understand it. They told me that there was no way I was over 120. And I was 135 at the time. I guess being a pear enables my top half to look small enough that I can fool people.

I always end up gaining/ losing all the time so my pants never seem to fit right. I'm a tightish 6 short petite (that means I'm short by petite standards i guess :'( ). It is SO hard to go shopping for petites sometimes. Sears by me doesn't even have a petite department. There's only a few odds and ends of sizes scared in the store. And they're usually a size 16 or 12 medium. Even if I were to gain weight they wouldn't fit me. I've never been able to fit into anything but short jeans. I'm glad they invented heels. <3

Dancer41- I'm the worst with hiding behind others in photos. Or I'm taking them- in which case it's irrelevant. I love taking pictures so much. XD

Thanks for the link!!! It's also nice to hear that people understand that it feels like I need a low number (closer to 119-125 pounds). My waist feels like it's getting smaller but my pants size hasn't changed too much. I'm at a 10/12 with 160 pounds and I really would rather be in the single digits with smaller legs because I feel like I'm skinny fat.

Hi I hope you are still on this thread, I am new and short. I was 5'2 but I think I shrunk because I am also old lol. Anyway I find that at my weight 158.4 nothing is left to the imagination. It is pretty darn obvious but I am losing although on a plateau for 3 days. Tomorrow should be a big breakthrough day for me. Good luck all.

Yay, shorties! I had no idea this thread was here and I've been a member on and off for 7 years. I'm about 5'1 1/2". I would say my perfect weight is about 117 but I'm not sure how attainable that is for myself. I have my current goal set to 145 but I know I want to be below 130. I always hated that my younger, taller sister could hide any weight she gained just because of her height. Weight is so visible on us shorties I like being a shorty don't get me wrong but it just stinks being heavy and short. I loved being the "tiny" one back in school.
