It's crazy to me how many wonderful teams there are on sparkpeople--I've just discovered this one, and I know I belong!! I'm 5'2 (actually, 5'1 3/4), and I had a doctor once tell me that I am "vertically challenged"--I'm sure you've all heard that one before. It bothered me, actually, but I know he was right--we just can't consume as many calories as people who are taller!! Like someone else I saw on a different topic, I have a tall husband (6'0) who weighs less than I. UGH. But I'm going to catch up and pass him on the way down!!!

I'm glad I found a team based on height. Most people tell me that I don't need to lose weight. They don't realize that when you're short you have to weigh less.
