HI i am 5 feet and now weigh 124 pounds, down from 140 a few months ago. When I gain a little weight it shows rightaway, thanks to my small frame! Nice to meet you all! :o)
It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses.

Thanks everyone! It's a daily battle - I just like food, especially the wrong kinds. But when I look back on my biggest pictures......well, I know I don't want to go back there. Yikes - 4'11" and 210 pounds. I was about as wide as I was tall - nope, don't want to go back there at all!

But not new to SparkPeople. Hi, I'm Patti, and I'm delighted to see so many other shorties! I'm 4'11", I've lost 50 pounds, and have about 50 left to go. Having a tough time right now sticking to it, but I'm hanging in there!
