Thank you for all your kind words and support. It means so much to me... It truly feels great to find others who can relate to this weighty issue (pun intended!) because you have walked in my shoes.

Please keep in touch!

Welcome to the board! Our weight loss goal is similar and I (as well as most of us here) can empathize with being short and stout. I've noticed that even a few pounds gone at a time makes a big difference in the way I feel physically. That's been a huge motivator.

I used to be 160 myself-- it definitely took some persistence to get back down into the 120s.

Good luck with your goals, it sounds like you've got a plan and the right attitude for it. :D

Welcome and congrats on the first week's weight loss. At my top weight I was where you were at. Along with being short I am short waisted too so I hated how things felt around my mid section.
Spark has been a great place to be and I am sure you will do well. There is a lot of us who have similar situations so that is helpful on seeing how others deal with weight loss.

Good luck!

Hi, everyone! I joined SP about a week ago and was delighted to find your team tonight. I'm a little over 5' tall, and it's hard to be so short and so overweight. I have gained and lost a few times over the years. My greatest loss was 60 pounds a few years ago, but I managed to gain most of it back after I went back to my old horrible ways. I am sick and tired of not being able to wear most of the clothes in my closet, which are size 4 after I reached my ideal weight of 115 so long ago. For the last year or so, I've been hiding in T-shirts and elastic pants.

So far in my first week of using SP I've used the fitness and nutrition trackers diligently and lost 2.5 pounds. Combined with the few pounds I lost beforehand, that's a total of 10 pounds. I still have a long road ahead of me, and I will need all the support I can get!
