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.
I know how it feels I'm about the same height. I've never been under 140 in my adult life so I don't know how it's going to feel but I started at a higher weight! You can do it!!! I know you can!

I saw 114.2 this morning - most amazing feeling ever! Although it's not my goal, I'm happy to be where I'm at now and to know that I'm not carrying around that extra 20 lbs I was back in May. It's been such a long, difficult journey but all worth it in the end being short, it feels like it's 10x more difficult to lose each pound

Another shortie here. I am 5' 0.7" (every inch counts). Being short has is pros and cons. A 5 lb gain on us shorties shows a lot.

Some people can eat what they want and how much they want without gaining. My younger sister (with one child) is 4'11" and she has never weighed over 90 lb (except during her pregnancy). One meal for her is literally 3 meals for me.

Is it weird that it's more exciting to see the changes rapidly... of course in the losing way... I'm hoping to be in the single digits with the next 10 pounds.

Ahhh, the single digits. I remember those *sigh*. I can't wait until I'm back there again

I haven't been in the single digits since I was in middle school so it will be new for me and the weird thing is that I'm smaller this time losing weight and weighing more. Bodies are so weird..

Hi all! I'm an old newbie! I haven't been here in years, but I'm struggling to stay motivated and came back here to get some motivation

I've been doing Weight Watchers online, however I haven't been consistent with it. I also just ordered Jillian Michaels Revolution program. I can't wait to get it! Right now I'm walking/jogging and occasionally doing a Zwow workout (zuzana light on fb).

I've struggled for the past 3.5 years, losing the same 4 lbs over and over again.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone! I'm 4' 9", probably one of the shortest here

Hey! I'm new and am 5'1. I plan on getting to my target weight by August. I will be doing spinning every day and hopefully incorporating some swimming and weights to my program. I put on my weight because of medication and bad eating habits so will also have to switch up my medication and eating in order to also maintain my new weight. I miss being and feeling fit so much! I can't wait to start this journey.

Hi everyone. 5'0" here. Even 5 pounds makes a visible difference at this weight, doesn't it? I've got a long way to go, still, and I'm hanging in there even though my motivation is at a low point these days. Glad to find a thread for us short gals.

Hi there!

In my opinion 5lbs can make a visible difference. Whether it's a loss or gain, I think it does show. And in particular on us shorties! I think the taller you are, the more chance of your weight being spread over your body. And with shorter people, they tend to stick in similar places i.e tummy area and probably bum area. My issue is I carry all my weight on my tummy area. Sometimes because you see yourself everyday (that sounds odd :P) it can be difficult to see chances, but others might notice them better. So if I was to gain or loss 5lbs, I would notice the chance by how tight or loose my clothes have gotten as well as the visible chances noticed by others.
