Niamhcas-- Girl, you are everywhere I am!! People are always surprised that I am only 5'2.5", they think I am taller, but I have been measured several times when I go for physicals and it's always the same. Some people who are taller than me often think I am their height or taller. Weird. Well...welcome to the team of shorties! Leslie

I think that is a statement that is true for most of us. Although we have set a "goal" weight we might not feel comfortable in our skin at that weight. It is something that only you will know. Welcome to the team and best of luck to you.
Only you can get yourself off your ass. (this is my orignal quote)

Hi my name is Niamh, from Ireland, 25, 5ft 2". Delighted to have found a team full of shorties like myself. I don't look that short, as in people never realise how short i am so i don't caryy weight well, a pound or two can make a huge difference. I'm sure its the same for everyone here. I hope to get to 108 and see what i look like there. I was always naturally skinny until I was about 20 then started to put on weight. So I only really started weighing myself in the past couple of years when it became an issue so I don't know yet what the right weight for me is. I won't know til i get there!
