Hi I'm Alison, I'm 5ft 2.5 and I live in the UK. I'm about half way to my goal, which is great, but I've not been doing well over the last few days. I thought I'd get on the forums before I did something stupid like gain the weight back! It's nice to be part of a forum where people might understand how annoying it is to have a BMR of 1699 calories! That's the maximum I can eat and not gain. Unfair

Hi, I'm Rachael. I'm 5'2" and about 90lbs overweight!! Yikes! I sort of have that big body small head look going right now. I would like to change that since I don't actually have a small head it just currently appears that way.
I travel every week working as a makeup artist. Which is rough cause I tell myself oh go ahead and eat that your on vacation. But you can't eat like that every week!!
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone on here and reaching my goal weight.

Hello! I'm Shenz - 5'1" from Oxnard,CA. I'm here because I'm short and would love to tone up and run faster, and that is why I need to lose weight. My ultimate goal is to be able to run 8-minute miles 5K pace.

Definitely looking forward to getting to know some of you. Good luck everyone in your fitness journey! =D

Hi, I'm Krystle. I'm 25 (26 in two weeks! o.O)
I'm 4'11, and have been struggling with my weight for quite awhile. I've multiple health issues, but my main issue seems to be motivation :P
I'm determined to lose 25 pounds by this time next year, so my cardiologist will be happier, and hopefully so will I emoticon

Hi everyone!

I'm new here (new to the team and SparkPeople)--I'm 5'1 so I've always had trouble finding clothes the right length but now that I've gone up (several) sizes finding things that fit and kind of flatter has been a nightmare.

Also, as I'm sure you all know, at this height every little pound seems like that much more without as much to spread it out on--frustrating! I'm hoping every little pound *gone* will seem like that much more, too--fingers crossed!

I hit my max this summer and managed to take about 5 pounds off on my own before I joined up here--so much nicer with all the Spark site and people support!

Hi everyone! My name is Nikki & I live in Chicago. I'm 5 foot & 1.5 inches (hey, every little bit helps). I'm also big-boned (no, really, I have a doctor's note), which adds to the frustration of finding nice clothes. At one point I lost enough that I was down to 122, but I looked like skeletor. I "managed" to gain back quite a bit of it in the last few years. I've lost a little over 20 lbs. on my own this year, but need help getting the rest of the way.

Hello, I am 5ft2in and overweight. I have been on this sight since January. My losing has been very slow; maybe it is my height and age. Will keep working on my goals.

Hi! What a great concept for a team! We actually had a 5' 2" and under club in my college sorority. I've had Rhuematoid Arthritis for 20 years, I have lost 53 pounds since March.

I'm actually 5'3" according to my doctor and I've noticed that the size I wear depends on the cut of the clothes. In the newer lower rise pants I'm an 8 but in clothes that sit on the waist I am a size 10. I carry my fat around my middle. I am greatful to be out of size 16's. I feel like the person looking back at me in the mirror is the person that should be there. I always pictured myself as thinner in my head when I was more Rubenesque and was always somewhat shocked when I looked in the mirror. Lately, when I look in the mirror I feel like saying, "ahh yes, I know you."

Hi everyone! My name is Anna and I am 5'0. Everyone thinks I am taller because I have such a big personality. I topped out at 185 when I started college and then got down to 150. Then my last semester I gained until I was 175 when I graduated. I have since lost 30+ lbs. I currently wear a size 6 and a PS. I have at least 17 more pounds to lose before I have a normal BMI. What am I going to wear when I reach that weight?! Fortunately Petite sizes actually do look normal on me, so I am grateful for that. But then again, finding Petite is not as easy as it should be!

Hi everyone! My name is a little odd, so I just go by Jane. I've been 5'0" for a while, but recently been measured closer to 5'1". I'll go with that. I'm married and have 2 children. We live in NC, just outside of the Raleigh area. I like BEACHBABE's quote "it is even colder up here if you are short since hot air rises!" I'm definitely going to use that! I have hypothyroidism too, which make my hands and feet feel like ice cubes.

I've been on Sparkpeople for an embarrassing 4 years!!! 2011 will definitely be my goal for maintenance...I'm on the C25K plan, but haven't stayed on schedule due to my cold. Today, I feel my energy returning, so that's on my to do list today (after work).

Wow - that's a lot of info, so that's all for now!

Hello fellow short people! My name is Shelly, and I'm a 5'2" 26 year old from MN. I swear it is even colder up here if you are short since hot air rises! I just found this group after someone mentioned it in a forum in the Spark Cafe message board. How cool to have a group of shorties who know how hard it is to lose weight at our height! I am especially struggling this time around... sigh. So many of you are motivating me, however, to kick my bad weekend habits for good! Thanks and it's great to meet ya!

Hello my name is Kitty. My dad named me after Kitty Wells a country & western singer. I am short and blonde. It is hard to be taken seriously sometimes because I am a short blonde named Kitty. I am 42, married and have two sons. I am glad to find this group and feel a sense of belonging with others who share similar experiences. Have a great night!

Hi all you shorties! This has got to be the only place I can say that and not offend anyone emoticon . My name is Sue and from the looks of it the majority of the team members are almost tall compared to me. I tell everyone that I am as wide as I am tall. Unfortunately that is almost true. But, I won't be that way for long. Since I joined SP I have lost 10lbs. But more important I have lost lots of inches and gained tons of happiness. I am so much more healthy living with SP even compared to when I was much younger and way thinner. My goal is to loose 50lbs by March 2011. By my 53rd bd. and that is when my son, whom is in the navy returns from a deployment to the Persian gulf. After that I will set a new goal to lose at least another 20lbs. But for now 50lbs is the goal.
I'm glad I found a team that understands what it's like to never find Plus size clothing in a petite women's cut.

Hi all! I'm Sydney and I'm short. :D I come from a short family- my dad was 5'3 and my mom is 5'2. I didn't stand a genetic chance! It's nice to have a group of shorties to commiserate with! Petite clothes still being too long, not being able to reach the top shelf and what not!

Howdy to all. I joined this group because I KNOW you all 'get it' ... we know how hard it can be for folks of our height to deal with weight. There just aren't any places to hide even a few extra pounds.

I am aiming now for 140 as a starting goal to shoot for. I thought I'd reassess that when I got there, but I really admit that I'd be happy with 120 and that is my overall goal. I haven't been there in a long long time. Once I get there, I can reassess my needs and see. My main concern is health... a healthy weight is important to me. I don't need to be a skinny minnie. But I NEED to be as healthy as I can be.

I'm Natalie. I'm 4'10.5" and my husband is about 6'2".
I would love to lose about 10 pounds (I'm 110 right now). I know it's in my healthy weight range, but I've got clothes that are a little tight that I'd love to fit into again (if they're still reasonable fashionable).

All the women in my family (I only know my mother's side) were short. She was 5'1" and obese. My grandmother was around 5' with a big belly, which shrunk considerably after she was diagnosed with diabetes and forced to follow a healthier diet. I am just under 5'2" and have yo-yoed with my weight since my teens. I wish I were tall, like 5'8" or 5'9" so that I could eat and not worry about it "showing up" on my body!

Hi, I found this page by accident. I am exactly five feet tall and proud of it. I just want to be healthy and weigh less than 125 pounds. Right now I weigh 135 pounds, but I look pretty good because I go a great deal of weight lifting. I love it. By the way, I am a retired English Teacher. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi! Holly here. I have been part of SP for a few weeks. Just stumbled upon this group while puttering around the site. I'm (barely) 5'2". I swear I USED to be, but I think I have shrunk a quarter of an inch in recent years! I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my mid-30s, probably due to being small-boned and my weight fluctuating so much. Good to among some other petite ladies here!

Hi, all! I'm new to sparks. Any helpful tips on using the site are welcomed ;)

I am here to help hold myself accountable to an exercise and eating well program. I want to be able to be around for my kids for as long as I can.

I am 4'9" (technically but 4'8 1/2" but rounding is allowed, right?). It's great to see so many vertically challenged people all in one place!

Hi everyone! My name is Hazel and although I am not new to Spark, I am coming back after a very long break. I had zero motivation the first time around.. but I got more than enough of it now! I forgot how wonderful this place was :)

I am 27 years old and almost 5'1! I love that there are groups out there for us shorties. Why am I here? Well, I want to lose 25 pounds (and keep it off!), but I also want to have a healthier lifestyle. I am trying to create healthier recipes to put on my blog - I absolutely love cooking, maybe too much, but if I can make sure to plan healthier meals... I'll easily be able to reach my goals. Feel free to check out my blog ( cooking-out-loud.com ) or send me an email with a recipe idea! I also am attempting to do some type of cardio 6 times a week. I used to be in the military, but I am pretty out of shape now. I am working to get back into the shape I was then... even better actually!

Very happy to be here! emoticon

Hello everybody. My name is Mike and I live in Delaware. I am 5'3",42 years old; and I am very happy to have found the 5'3" and under group. I've been "Sparkin'" for just about a month now, and already feeling good about the site, and my results. I am a physically active person, but struggle when it comes to losing weight. The good news is...this is my time to do it and I will not fail.
Very happy to be here!!!!

I'm 33 years old and 5' 1.75" tall. My highest weight was 205 lbs. I'm satisfied that I found a way to weigh less on my terms, but there are some things that only people of similar height can truly understand. Overall, I'm so glad to be with fellow petites!

Hello Everyone!

I am not new to SP but am very excited to have found this team - a team that understands the struggles that us "shorties" go through everyday because of our weight.

My name is Yvonne, from IL. I'm 36 and 5' tall. I am hoping to lose 120 lbs and be healthy and fit.

Hi, I'm Yvonne from NJ. I saw that a few of my SP friends joined this team and I thought I would too. I'm 55 and lost about 20 lbs before joining SP. I'd like to lose 100, but I will be thrilled to lose 60. I have type 2 diabetes, a hip replacement and arthritis in my knees, so I'd determined and glad to be here with my follow petites! emoticon

Stop waiting for tomorrow. Today IS tomorrow!

Hi! My name is Mary and I'm not short--I am "low-down"! I'm 4' 9 and 3/4 inches--but I "stretch" it and tell people I'm 4'10"!!

I am thrilled to find a team that understands the difference that only 5 lbs. can make.

I look forward to being active with this team!
Mary

Hi Everyone! I am 5'3" and what I like to call shapely!! According to the charts I would be considered overweight. I have curves and will never be supermodel material..But my goal right now is to shape up what I have, and feel more confident in myself!

Hi! I'm new to SP! I'm a college student, and although many say you should enjoy your college years, drink what you want, and eat what you want while you're still young, I'm trying to do the exact oppoite! While I'm still young I'd love to make eating healthy and working out a permanant part of my lifestyle, and not let myself go before it's too late. I'm 5'3" with a small frame, and I'm just trying to get fit and in shape! Also looking for new friends with similar goals :]

Lol! Talk about pun intended! Sure, I'll tell you a little about myself - I'm 5'3" so I qualify! As far as the other part, it's not so little, and I'd like to whittle my middle! I'd also like to put some photo albums together with organized notes about my kids included - what were their first words again? Hmmm... Enjoy SparkPeople - today was first time I saw support team for ... height challenged people. I was teaching a class of teenagers and we all went outside. I had to have them all sit down on the grass before I could start the lesson cause I felt completely out of place! Here's to the people that have to shop in the petite section for pants!

I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Goal 1: 190--new book**met 8/11

Hi, all! I'm new to this group although not new to sparking and so glad to have found you! I'm 5"2.5". I was 5'2.75" during college, but that was a LONG time ago, so I've started to shrink in height as I've grown in girth! When I really started to focus on my health and fitness, I was appalled to find what I thought was extra weight was the equivalent of my being obese. I'm committed to becoming a fit human being, in body and spirit, and coming to fit better in this powerful body I was given!

Hi! I'm Caroline from Chicago. I'm 5' 2.5" and carry all of my weight between my waist and my shoulders (and my upper arms). I'm 164 (stuck on a plateau) and want to lose at least 30--although, I think I'd settle for 20 more at this point! So glad to find this group!
