Hi! I'm Patty from Michigan. Four years ago, I was 5'2 1/4". Today I stand at 5' 1/2". But I didn't lose weight - it slowly crept up! I'm glad to find a group that understands the problems of being vertically challenged.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

HI! I just found this team. I have been on Spark for a few years. I am 4'11 and am so excited to see a team for short people. I started this journey at 245 pounds. Today I weighed in at 198. I am so excited to have broken through to the 100's. I still have a ways to go but I am going there. It took a while to find the right program that works for me. I look forward to meeting the team. emoticon

Hello 5'3" and want to find a group that understands what its like to hardly eat anything and still gain weight!

We have square plates and I always use the small one and he uses the large one. I complained the other day because he filled my little one up with pasta. It's still way too much and to him its nothing! I wish I could eat more like him and not gain...

Anyway, I am living in WA state in the mountains 53 and newly retired so get bored sometimes.

Hi, I am new here. This is my 2nd day on here. As I was cruising through the community I came across this group and I about died laughing. I told myself, "Finally! There are those who get it." Being short AND Heavy?!?! It is no walk in the park. I am 4'11 and it doesn't help with a lot of the exercises. I can't use the eliptical because my hips and knees protest. I can't run because well my knees protest. The Dr told me it is because I am too close to the ground. I thought he was making a short joke. However, he was just stating the cold hard facts. He was simply saying; I was going to have 'issues' due to my skeletal structure.

Anyhow, here I am, and I am so glad I found this. Now a goal is to actually remember how to find this group.. ~smiles~

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 foryourdailywalk.com/

I am Melissa from PA. I am trying to lose about ten pounds and get to 120-125 pounds on my muscular 5'2" frame. I currently wear a 4/6 which I am happy with but I would like to tone up more and lose the extra padding. I love to exercise but am not consistant enough with my diet but I am trying to do better. I am using the Nutrition tracker everyday so I am noticing my trends - eating too much at night and on the weekends. Now I just need to fix it!

I am Denise from Southern California. I would like to lose about 10-15 pounds that I've put on over the past 2-3 years of working 2 jobs and completing graduate school. I like to run, hike, bike, and take fitness classes, my problem is staying consistent with these activities in order to see results. Now that I am on SP, I feel I am on the right track.

Hi all! I'm 5'1" and would like to lose 50 pounds all together, but right now my goal is to be in the 120's by my b-day in September.

Every time I tell my friends I want to be in the 110 pound range they look at me like I'm a crazy person! It's kind of annoying when they tell me that's not healthy (I'm 5'1"!!). But their frame of reference is skewed since they are at least 5'8" and 110 has not been in their healthy range since junior high, ha.

I look forward to the pint size advice I can get by being a part of this team!!

Big things come in small packages :D

Hello everyone! I've been with sparkpeople for about a year now. I've lost about 10 lbs and down from size 10/12 to 4/6 now. I met with my personal trainer and my body fat percentage is still in the high range. After speaking to my trainer, I have a goal of losing about 10 more lbs and/or down to a comfortable size 4.

For those who just recently joined sparkpeople, keep going. Sparkpeople have helped me change my life.

Thank you for listening.

Hi I just found this team today I am 5 foot 2 inches and have got about 20lbs to lose, have lost 10lbs with sp since i joined in Jan 2010 but seem to have stalled a bit. I'm glad to find a team I can relate to I tell people I'm just short for my weight. I've just turned 50 and want to be as healthy and happy and live well. I'm sick of losing and putting on the same 10-15 kgs, I need to find a sustainable way to maintain a healthy weight. My partner and I both work in hospitality, so this means lots of eating out. He is 6 foot 2 and doesnt have a weight problem so portion size is an issue for me especially in restaurants. Looking forward to losing this weight together and sharing support and ideas. emoticon

Celebrate the positives everyday be the best me i can be

Hi, I live in Connecticut, I am 4'11" (after being 5' most of my adult life) - think it is due to the herniated discs and spine problems.
I have lost 20 lbs since July 2009(4 since joining spark people in Feb. 2010). I am dealing with neck/lumbar spine issues, and knee cap problems from an accident last year. I am about 25% down from where I was, and a bit over 50 lbs to go.

Hi. emoticon , I'm glad to find people with the similar short issues of weight gain/loss. I'm over 50 and gained 20+ pounds in last 5 years!!
I remember when I'd go to a restaurant and the plate would still look full when I was done eating. They serve so much when you go somewhere, and I seem to be following the over-eaters of America habit. Time to re-group and eat 'just enough' for our small stature.

Keep on Truckin'

Hello, short Sparkers!

I am so happy I found a group for all of us little people! Sometimes I find it hard to gauge weight loss goals and stuff when talking to other Sparkers cause a woman who's 5'9" does NOT have the same goals as me.

I am 5'1" (okay, 5 feet and three quarters of an inch, but who's counting?). Today I weigh 152, which is not much on a tall girl but looks pretty hefty on a girl my size! I am aiming to get into the 120s, though once I get there we will see how I feel about it. After all, according to the BMI charts I could go a LOT lower if I felt like it.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about what weight loss is like for the other shorties here. Glad I have found my people!

Hi Everyone,
I am 5'3" and 130. I have awful belly fat that just keeps getting bigger. I am going through menopause and having a hard time losing it. I am 50 and really want to get healthy. I exercise an hour a day and then lift some weights. I need to really watch what I eat since that is the problem I am sure!! Look forward to losing with all of you!

Have a great day!

Hi to the team,
I joined SP about 3 weeks ago. I'm 5'1" and weigh 135 lbs. 100 hr work weeks and stress packed on 50 lbs. I lost 25 lbs a couple of years ago but lost motivation. Per doctor's orders I now have to lose the other 25 lbs. Having trouble staying motivated but I AM going to do it this time and get the weight off once and for all.

Hi Everyone,
I just joined the group but I'm not new to Spark. I'm 5'1'' and weight 138 lbs. I'd like to be between 125-130. Unfortunately I've fallen off the wagon a few times after I didn't see any results. I also have a problem with sweets (except soda). I hope this time I can stick with it.

I am now 66 years old and I am short (5'2.5") and wide (213#). I have problems with clothes because of my height and weight. As I am losing weight, the problem in finding clothes for a curvy, short woman still remains and I am sick of it.

Hello- I just turned 40 and have decided to become more fit and healthy for a better future! And also losing 5-10 pounds so that I can close my zippers wouldn't hurt either. I am 5 ft. and so I don't want those few extra pounds to escalate into something much bigger. Those of us with small frames cannot hide the extra weight so easily.

Welcome everyone! Lots of motivated Sparkers out there. I have been on my latest (most successful) weightloss journey for the past 14 months now. Please feel free to visit my SparkPage to see if there is anything that I can help with or maybe a problem you have or may have in the future. I have learned a lot from my Spark Buddies!

There is always a happy medium, middle-ground, compromise. Make good choices and be a great role model.

Lead by example.

Hi. I started Spark 1.5 months ago. I have only lost 5 pounds, but 5 pounds on short girls looks more like 8. Then everyone knows weight gain always looks more than it does too. emoticon

I am 5 foot 2 inches just barely.
I am a stay at home Mom with no excuses but I always can find one somewhere.

I have been consistant with Spark for 6 weeks and I am proud of that. I have snuck a few cookies every once in a while but generally have been very good.

I usually give up after a few weeks, and almost did a few times, but looked at some Spark Pages and was inspired to keep going.

I am SPARK PROUD!!

Hi, my name is Jae. I'm 5'2" tall and am renewing my weight loss journey after being away from Spark for most of 2009 due to relationship drama. Not only am I short, but I'm short-waisted and am now buying clothes in the petite dept instead of being swallowed up in regular sized clothes that are too long and too big. Having clothes that really fit my small frame is motivating me to lose the rest of this extra weight I'm carrying, so I'm off and running!

Jae

I'm making excellent progress! Can't wait to wear some of the great clothes in my closet!

Hello all, I am 5'3" and have been on the site for almost a year. I saw this team on another member's page and immediately wanted to join. I hit my initial goal of 115#, but lowered my goal to 110# because there are still some areas that need work. The last 5 pounds are tough to lose.

I love to walk outside, but since I live in Wisconsin I am on the treadmill most of the winter. In the summer I also like to rollerblade and garden. I am 51 years old and married with 2 kids. My daughter is 17 and my son is 12.

I am hoping to inspire and be inspired by all of the fellow height challenged out there.

Hey!

Super pumped that I found this group! I'm 5'3/4". (I just found out about the 3/4 of an inch recently. And yes, it's a big deal!) I'm from Wisconsin and go to UW-Superior for social work.

I'm trying to maintain my healthy weight. Which is very, very hard in college.

Hi everyone. I am Leslie, mother of two beautiful girls (Lorelei and Kaelin) and 5'2". I currently live in Alexandria, VA. Too much snow here for my liking right now. I have lost probably 45-50 pounds since February 2009 but I have about 45-50 pounds left to go. Haven't been that active on SparkPeople but I intend to change that. I enjoy good food, good movies, exercising, playing billiards, traveling, the internet (love to play on Facebook, Ivillage, etc.)

Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday.

Under 5'3" and over 50! Double Whammy! I am new to SparkPeople today! Just stopping in to introduce myself. My biggest downfall in the battle to lose weight is my lack of physical activity. I have tried and lost weight many times. Needless to say, I have gained it back many times, as well. I am committing to trying something different this time. I AM GOING TO BE ACTIVE!!!! emoticon

I'm 4'11" and I love being short. I'm so glad I found this team. I currently weigh 140 lbs. and am trying to get down to 120 lbs. I recently went from obese to overweight, based on my BMI, and am working to get from overweight to normal.

Hello!
I am 54, 5'1", and 131 pounds. It seems like I gain up to somewhere between 135-150 and then lose down to about 110-115 before starting to gain again. At 131 I have health problems and look and feel unwell. My goal is to get to 110 (where I always feel great!) and to STAY THERE!!! In addition, I'd like to be fit and strong.

What a pleasure to be on a team that understands the huge difference 5 pounds can make!

Hey everyone! so glad I found this group. I am 5'2 and 199.9 lbs! I am 24 years old and have 2 boys Landon John Thomas age 3 and Linkin Jasper Drake age 4 months. I have ALWAYS been in the "obese" category as far as I can remember. I stayed at 190 until I got pregnant with my first then ended up 220. I lost 50lbs with sparkpeople and then gave up because I was trying to get pregnant. I got pregnant and gained ALL my weight back! I was at 221.1 afterwards. I started to try again in november. Lost 22lbs then hit christmas and not only fell off the wagon...I jumped lol. I only gained a few lbs but I didn't go back to dieting after christmas. SO I have waisted a MONTH. Now I am back. I have .9 christmas weight to lose then 69lbs til goal. I AM GONNA DO THIS THIS TIME!

Hi, I'm Karen I joined SP Jan. 18th and am loving it.
I am 5 foot, I think , though my family scoffs at that. I am 59 years old and between us we have 4 grown children and 9 grandchildren ranging in age from less than 1 month, to a 19 year old. I just retired and hope that now I am stress free the weight will come off. I never weighed more than 100 lbs even after having babies until I hit 40. Something got switched off and now I will be happy to lose 40 lbs and that would get me to what i weighed when I was 9 months pregnant but heck I need a little extra to fill out the wrinkles now. LOL

Hi...I'm Kim. A 45 yr old mom of 2...21 yr old son, and a 15 yr old daughter...I'm 4'11 1/2"..but I wear heels and also poof my hair, so everyone thinks I'm taller..lol..I just discovered sparkpeople and am loving it, though still finding my way around. I'm from a little town in New Brunswick, Canada, and baby..it's cold outside..lol. -26 with wind chill..so thats my excuse for not walking..I manage to find one every day...I'm doing pretty good eating wise, it's the exercise, that I need..but I am finding it soooooooo hard to get off my lazy butt...so I joined the goal of walking 30 minutes every day. My daughter wants to start walking in the mornings, so our plan is to start tomorrow morning at 6 am!! lol..I'm thinking if I say it here, I may be more accountable...wish me luck..and i look forward to getting to know some fellow shorties in this weight loss struggle...

Hi I'm 5ft 1''. I need to lose quite a bit of weight.
That's ok, at least I'm trying. Two years ago I lost 80 pounds but ended up gaining it all back except for
about 2o pounds. This time I want to do it safely and
properly. Now a little about my family. I'm married
have a 21 year old son,and a kitty. Lost my job last year. I discovered SP this year and already lost 10 pounds.

Hi everyone! Just joined this group so here goes:

My name is Kim and I live in Maine with my husband and 3 children. I just turned 30 last month and it seems to have given me the extra motivation I've been lacking for years. At 5'2" I feel like a bit of a muffin with the extra weight I've gained between kids, moving every few years (husband is in the Navy), and just enjoying unhealthy foods a little too much. It's time to turn it around! I joined SparkPeople about 3 weeks ago and it's done so many wonderful things for me already (including losing a few pounds!). I'm hoping to drop 20 lbs. by May and can use all the support I can get and hope to provide some to anyone else who needs it!
