I know losing over 50 pounds is more on a short person. I am only 4'10'...at least most of you all made it to 5 feet! My daughter is grateful to be 5'2". I have lost it a couple of times in my 60 years. Exercise definitely helps when short because the appetite is never 'short'.
I am battling with a major lifestyle change. Have to baby sit my now 6 1/2 month old grand daughter. I had to wait for her to reach 6 months to even take her to Bally's to do my noon spin class. Have to do more at home stuff when not playing with her. Also taking Sophia up to her mom for a lunch breastfeeding 3 times a week cuts into your time for the day.
Just glad I did 2 months with my birthday present of a personal trainer...Courtney Cox, who is a famous Fitness Figure model that is on magazine covers. I had here take pictures of all more workouts so I can recreate them at my Bally's on my own time. I just have to get Sophia used to the sitter for me to have more workout time.

Your story sounds quite a bit like mine, except that I finally got serious at the age of forty-six! Made it a lifestyle change and have not looked back. Give it your all - it's worth it!

Right there with ya. I'm looking to drop around 40. I don't think I will ever get back into my size 4's. 6's would be nice but I will take 8's.

Welcome! I never thought of it that way, but you're right. 50 lbs for us show a lot more than on a taller person! :( Good for you to have decided to become healthy before encountering any issues with your weight. I have only lost about 15 lbs so far, and I'm looking to lose a total of 50
Good luck on your journey, and don't ever lose sight of your goals. Have fun!

This 50 pounds is like 100 pounds on a taller person! Looking to get back down to 124, possibly less but we'll worry about that later! I'm 31 years old, 2 children....im overall living an awesome life that's being hindered by self consciousness, despite having a husband who worships me at any size, I feel unattractive. I have the good fortune of not yet having any health issues related to my weight, and I'd like to prevent any! I have a fairly active job, but I don't do any sort of exercise at the moment, and that's got to change! Love to meet other people who have lost a substantial amount of weight or are starting their own journeys to chat with and offer mutual support. message me!! :)
