I'm 4' 10". Hubby claims to be 4'11" bit he's actually shorter than me...shhhh don't tell him ;) all of our children are 5'7" and up. EXCEPT our youngest @ 4 years old we are both still taller than her. But not for long (he he).
Happy to have found this group, this morning I was searching for midgets, little people, etc. when I put in under five it took me to parents of preschoolers. So I gave up and started looking for nutritional goals...and then I saw a little link saying you may also be interested in....and here I am!!! Hooray.

5'. I was always 123-128 and gained over 45lbs from the birth control I used. Of course now it is really hard to lose. I recently changed my eating habits because going to the gym 5 days a week made little difference no matter how hard I worked out.

What stinks about being so short is 5lbs on one of us is like 10lbs on someone who is taller.

5' 2" although I am inclined to give myself an extra inch. Petite pants don't always work cuz it looks like I am wearing what we used to call high waters. Being short--it is difficult to carry extra pounds. I like my size..no worry about leg room!

4'10" its a love/hate thing, I wish I had at least made it to 5' I love being small, but hate that I always get remarks like I didn't know my own size. My 13 yr old daughter is 5'2" already, and my 11 yr. old son is my same height. They love it because they are becoming taller than me and think its funny. They never realized mommy was short...lol!

Tell your sister to try www.cinderellaofboston.com

This is where I buy virtually ALL of my dress shoes! The cater to ladies with small feet (of all ages) so some of the styles do not appeal to me, but I usually find at least one pair each season!

Also, the brand name Vigotti (available on Zappos), usually thier size 4 works for me!

That's true, I was thinking about a few specific cases. I think a few of them are size 9s, and another also says she has trouble finding shoes because her feet are too big. Most of the women in my extended family are size 5 or size 6, and there's only about a 3" range between all of us though, so I feel weird

you must have friends with small feet. When I graduated from highschool I was 5'0'' and wore size 7 AA or AAA depending on the make. My 14 year old is 5'2 and wears size 10-11 women's and her basketball shoes are a men's 81/2 hightop. I currently wear a size 8 medium.

I'm 5'0. My family always thought I was chubby, but I think my best weight was 110. I think it was just cuz I wasn't toned. I actually hate that I wear size 7 shoes, because I feel weird that I'm not tall, but wear the same shoe size as my friends that are 5'7 and up.

@AZCHICA2006, I know this post is late, but my sis has the same problem looking for shoes. She's 4'11, and stores just don't carry as many shoes in size 5 anymore. She just HATES shopping for shoes.

I'm 5'3" but am very typical of the females in my family even the females on my husband's side except for one sister. It's funny that in my family the short women marry tall men. My husband's side of the family is the same way even the one tall woman in the family married a short man.

I am 5' and 1/2"...that half inch matters!! I'm trying to get down to 110. I've always been told weight should be 100 lbs for 5' and 5 lbs for inch after, but there is no way I'm gonna be 102. At my thinnest I was 110 and happy with it. I have big boobs and I swear that's 5 pounds there lol. Plus, overall, my build is thick...I'm never going to look like the models you see in magazines and I'm fine with that.

OLLIE: I dated a guy once that was a foot taller than me. It was always awesome that he could just pick me up and move on. I agree with the feeling tiny even when you feel huge. Its nice.

SWEETBOO: Tiny and curvy! love it! Good luck to you. I'm sure you are working hard!
