I'm 4'11" but usually say I'm 5' since most people don't know the difference and I wear heals every chance I get.

ORANGESTAR17,

I am 4 foot 11 inches tall and I too agree that every pound is far more noticeable on shorter people. It is hard to believe that I once was taller than everyone in my class when I was in fourth grade, but by 7th grade, I was the shortest! I stopped growing a long time ago.

I absolutely agree with the post that said every pound makes me closer to an oompa loompa! Being short, every pound is noticeable!

I am 5'1", I haven't grown an inch since 8th grade!

Hi Victoria, emoticon

Sounds like we are quite similar and have close targets.

I'm also 5'2" and my heaviest was 215, lost 30 pounds, then moved countries and put 20 back on.

Finally back on track and losing again down to 175.

We can do this!

Hello - I just joined today :)

I'm 5'2"

Being short means that ever pound brings me one step closer to Oompa-looma.

I was 218 at my heaviest - but now am getting down. stayed at 195 for a few years and then started to take things seriously and am currently at 170.

I'm 4'10" A whole 2 inches taller than my mom. lol! I hear you FABB108 about the tall guys, most of my bfs were 6+ feet. Then I met my 5'6" husband, good news is no more tip toe kisses. Would that count as Calf Raises I wonder?

I like to say that I'm 5'3" because then I'm as tall as my mom but I'm really 5'3/4" in the morning and 5'1/2" at night. Other than that I'm pretty happy with my height. The shorter we are the more power we pack per inch! emoticon

I'm 5' even. I'm used to my height but do agree with the fact that there just isn't a lot of room to carry weight. The good thing that my body does is to distribute it evenly so I do have an 'hourglass' figure - I just want a smaller glass emoticon

Hi gals, I am 5'1" and weigh about 116. I know my ticker says I weigh 114 but unfortunatley, I have gained back the 2 pounds I lost. I am so bummed but I will lose them really fast. Finals did it to me..all I could do was study and eat junk food with my study buddies.I need to change my ticker.

I love you shorties! You all look great! Be proud to be short!

I am 5'2" and can be smaller than 120. I figure that is a fairly easy weight for me to maintain when not dieting. But I agree that there are a lot that want to get to under 100, that always surprised me...

Good luck to you all!

I'm 5'2" and it never bothered me. Most of my friends and family are not that much taller than I am. There are people shorter than me in my family and I also have friends that I am taller than. The only thing with not-so-tall people is that when we gain weight, IT IS VERY NOTICEABLE. One of my aunts told me that it's not good for us not-so-tall people to be fat cause we tend to spread out emoticon . And she is sooo right. Taller people have more room to store their weight gain emoticon .

I say almost 5'2" but it's more like almost 5'1 and a half emoticon . Taller people always say I wished I weighed [my weight here] or I wish I wore a size [my dress size/shoe size here] but if asked to swap none of them would want to be not quite 5' 2" tall. Not even the really tall ones, yes they wish they were shorter but not THAT short :-)

I'm not overweight, I'm undertall.

Thanks for all the responses. Sometimes it is hard to keep weight issues in perspective, especially since I have a younger sister who is 5 ft 9 and only weight 110. I just have to remember that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

All this time I've been thinking I was 5'2", but I was measured yesterday and I'm 5'3"!!! I couldn't believe it! When I was younger, I had a problem being vertically challenged, but I don't mind any more. They say that you become more confident in who you are when you get past age 30, and it was so true for me. The only time I want to be taller is when I have to buy pants or long skirts. I have to find a good tailor!!

I say 5"2 for ease but I'm really 5" 1 1/2

They laugh at me at the stables because I often ride the smaller ponies rather than the horses the other adults ride and when the ponies try their hardest but can't quite pull of wat we are trying to do just say it's because it's a short fat hairy pony with a short fat hairy rider!!

Hiya

I'm 5'2" too and sometimes feel as wide lol

I think we have quite a few europeans here and so their weight is in kilos.

I wondered the same too at first thinking they must be mad to want to be so small, till I realised.

As I'm in Malta weight is in kilos here too, but I'm used to stones and pounds being from the UK, then got used to pounds while living in Canada, so I am always converting my weight from kilos to pounds to stones/pounds lol

All the best

Hey, I am new here and I was just wondering how short we all are? Some of you trying to get under 100 lbs must be teeny tiny! I am 5 ft 2 and have struggled not to have the vertically AND horizontally challenged look for a long time, just wondering where everyone else is coming from. emoticon

Good Luck to Everyone Out There!!!
