Hello right now I am 4'11 and a little over 200 lbs. for my height i've been told that that is dangerous and now would like to do something about it. i do very much love my height, it's my size that i would like to do something about. I have now come to the realization that even though i have big thoughts i cannot include on my plate.

My name is Jack and I am 4'10. I am so glad I found this group! I've been short my whole life though not always struggled with weight. I was very thin as a child but when I was 14 I was put on medicine that caused me to gain a lot. I have been able over the years to lose some weight but never been able to get to that healthy and ideal 110-115lbs. At my highest weight I was 178 and now I am at 148. It's hard being short and trying to lose and maintain weight especially because every little bite I eat seems to make me gain a lot.

Hi,
My name is Susan and I am a shorty just at 5'3"! Love the height but the weight is another thing entirely. Goal is to get back to a healthy BMI by December 2011. Been at the weight loss game since May 2010 in Weight Watchers, joined Spark a couple of months ago to help me with quick, and reasonably priced, menus.

I look forward to sharing the journey with you!
Sue

hi! i am mel, i am a 20 year old college student who has been 5'2'' since elementary school! i am going to college to become a high school math teacher and i am so excited to be almost finished and 3 months away from my 21st birthday. in high school i was always a 3 sport athlete and maintained an athletic build, between 145-150. i was famous for eating like crap but with all the sports it never posed a serious issue and i didn't have the will power to eat healthy. since going to college i gained about 15 pounds, and finally after semesters and summers of saying i am going to lose the weight, i am doing something about it. i live off campus in an apartment with friends so i am able to eat healthy (besides my eating pickiness that i am trying to overcome) and have been going to the gym regularly. i am starting to see some progress and really want to be down to under 155 by march 11 when i go home from spring break, that will be about 10 pounds down and i want my mom to see it! i plan on doing the jillian michaels 30 day system posted on here starting march1 along with the cardio ive been doing. my goal for my 21st birthday is to be down to 135. and then during the rest of the summer get down to 120-125. i know i can do it, i just sometimes need an extra push. so any buddies would be amazing!!

Hi! I'm Lisa & I'm almost 5' & love, love, LOVE that there's a team that's all people in my height (or lack of) range! I grew up in Wisconsin & have been on the chunky side most of my life, however in my early 20's I got down to about 105 for a few years (I was a smoker then). I've been hovering between 130 & 140 for the last 5-10 years & can't seem to get below 130 for long. I didn't mind the weight so much when I lived in Sconnie because, lets face it, half the year we spend inside wearing bulky sweaters! I moved to Florida about 5 years ago & it's a lot harder here where soooo many people are beach-body thin. I set my goal at 110 because I think that's a healthy & attainable weight. My REAL goal is to wear a swimsuit to the beach without shorts (currently these thighs do not see the light of day EVER) & feel comfortable & confident! If anyone's looking for a petite weight loss partner, give me a holler! emoticon

Hello! I live in California, was slightly overweight as a teenager, and then put on a lot of weight in my 20's. Now I just want to be healthy and not have the doctor say "it's your weight" every time I have an unexplained healthy issue. I don't mind being curvy. If I ever reach the ideal bmi I will be the same weight as I was in junior high. Same height too. 5' 1 and 5/16"

Hello all,
My name is Jennifer and I live in Oregon where it tends to be cold and rainy for most of the year. I am 30 years old and have spent most of my late 20s trying to get back into shape. I feel the most comfortable around 110-115, but I'm not wanting to look like a stick figure. I am 5'1" and I love it, unless I'm reaching for something at the grocery store. I was married in August and the hubby and I have put on all the weight we lost before the wedding so I am starting over again. Exercise has never been a big issue for me, I love it and it's fairly easy to maintain, my issue is food. I love it, but usually not the healthy stuff. I purchased a FitBook recently and it has been great for setting weekly goals/rewards as well as logging all of my food and exercise. For me totally helpful. Ok enough babbling! Nice to meet you all!!!!

Hello, everyone. I am 5 feet 2 inches tall (I think). Some people say I am shorter. I need to only loose 20 lbs, but unfortunately, those pounds are on my stomach. I look like I am pregnant. I have lost 15 lbs before on SP 2 years ago, but gained it all back. So, I am trying to come back and loose it again, this time for ever. I am pretty good about counting my calories and portion control, but I have no time to exercise and that is the main thing that made me loose weight lost time. I have no idea why I can't find the time. I think it's lack of motivate. When I first joined years ago, I was very motivated, but not this time. I am hoping new groups and meeting new people will help me get going.

Hi! I'm Jen! I joined SP last year, but now I'm on it for good. No excuses anymore! I'm 5'1" and currently 141-143 lbs, (very fluctuating weight during the day.) I have PCOS and anxiety issues so, for my general health, I really need to lose about 20-30 lbs or about 10% bodyfat, (which ever comes first).

I'm so glad to see that there are so many other members with similar height/ goals to mine! I really need some encouragement because I'm a military spouse and will be moving soon and therefore losing my friends/support network. I get overwhelmed easily, but I also draw a lot of power from the inspiration that I gain from seeing other people succeed. Nice to meet you all!

Hi, I'm Sandi, age 60, been on the team/spark for a few months but don't know if I got around to introductions. @ 5'0" I'm considered morbidly obese as well, the charts are haywire. My goal weight of 115 is right in the middle of healthy BMI range for me. That's 10 lbs over my old HS weight of 105, but I will be ecstatic to be within 10 lbs of HS at age 61. (and stay there! that is key...) I turn 61 end of May, will reach goal end of the year. Then hubs retires a year later. I want to be prepared for a healthy and active retirement with no weight regrets!

Hi! I would love to join you guys! I am 5'3/4" (Ive always been 5'1" and was so disappointed @ my physical last week to hear I lost 1/4"!). My current weight is 148.5 and my goal is 135. I am 56 yrs. old.

I joined this group a long time ago and then quit, but I hope to stick around this time!

Hi, I'm Ardyn. I'm 4'10", and I love being short! I am so glad to have found this group! emoticon

My biggest complaint is that because I am 6 inches shorter than the average woman, I am considered "morbidly obese" at 180. A "healthy" weight for me is supposed to be about 100. I haven't been 100 lbs since I was in 7th grade. emoticon

I have decided that I am just going to try to reach the weight where I feel comfortable. I know Spark People can help me reach that goal.

Hi I am sera. I am 5 foot and a half inch. Yes got to add that half inch. I am a very big popent of the saying What I don't have in height I make up with personality. My daughter who is now a whopping 5'2 has even gave me a theme song which pretty much highlights that phrase. Robin I also have found that what weight I should be depends on the source so you not alone in your confusion. I decided my weight goals based on what I looked like at certain stages of my life where I thought I had a smoking body. My ending goal weight is between 140-160 but my current goal is 180.

Hi I'm Robin I'm 5'2 (depending on how poofy my hair is when go to the drs office) I am so glad I found this group. I love my height it is perfect for me! What I don't like is that the extra pounds looks like so much more on my frame.Most charts have such a large range of what you should weigh,with too many variables.I'm hoping to get to a healthy weight & maintain.

So glad I found this team! I'm Terri in Northern California, I'm 51 and am 5ft 1 1/2 inches. I just joined SP last week and I'm loving it so far.
I have 3 sons (ages 22, 20 & 18) that all still live at home and I have been married to my 2nd husband for 10 years as of tomorrow. I picked up 50 lbs over those 10 years, so currently my goal is to see how I look and feel at 130 lbs. Like someone else said, I do love my curves.

I know I was excited when I found this team too!

I'm 5'2" as well and my goal weight is 125. I've found in the past that that is my ideal weight. I have some curves that I don't want to lose. I just want to be more fit. I think the healthy range for a woman that is 5'2" is somewhere between 110-135. I'll have to look it up again but I know I'm almost back into range.

I honestly feel like I just found my "crew" here at SP, lol! I feel like the shortest person everywhere I go!

I'm 5'2" and have kept a weight above 145 since high school (15 yrs ago). Are we really supposed to weigh 105-115? That seems impossible!
Glad I found you guys!

I've been on SP for a little over 5 years, mostly to keep my weight in control and to gain strength and fitness and healthy eating habits. I'm happy to say I'm eating much better due to religious logging; I've started and maintained a routine of strength training 2-3 times a week; and I've become a runner! It's great to find a group of women in my size range. Glad to meet everyone.

Hi everyone, I'm MJ I'm 33 and i'm 5'1. I joined spark recently on dec 2nd after reaching my highest weight of 195 lbs. I thought it was time for me to join a program that emphasized a lifestyle change and not a diet. I found spark by accident and so far I'm loving it.

I just completed my second 5K last weekend and the first one with my hubby (he just returned from Afghanistan). I am looking forward to sharing all the ups and downs of this journey. Let's HIT this RIDE! emoticon

Hi, My name is Anne, and I'm 5'2". I'm glad I found this spark team, because I know my needs as a shortie are different than average or tall girls. I also feel my goal weight is ridiculously low when I compare it to others, so I think this group will be useful in seeing other short peoples goals and progress.

Hi! My name is Becky and I live in No. Calif.

I've been a member of Spark for 2 years and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

I retired 3 years ago from a high stress, sedentary job. My husband and I successfully put two families together, and now have an empty nest with only our Westie named Buddy and a huge black cat named Sudeeki to keep us company.

I never consider myself vertically challenged until I need something from a top shelf. Then I Thank God I have a 6'3" husband to help me out! LOL!!

Keeping that Spark,
Becky

Hi. I'm 5'2" and was very excited to see this team on here. I'm just trying to stay on track & reach my goals so looking for motivation and like minded people. If you can call your weight not budging for months a plateau than I've reached one. In the process of switching things up to see if that works.

Hi everyone,
I'm 4'11. My goal is to get to a size 6 (around 120-125) and maintain that for a while. I've lost 5 pounds already with 15 more to go.
It's nice to be able to talk to people who understand what it means to be short and overweight:O)

Jessica from Michigan here. I'm 5'3 3/4", I go by 5'4". I know I'm not 5'3" and under but I figured I'm close enough. I am newly married and things have been great. I lost about 10 pounds before my wedding in August but have gained 2 back. I want to keep losing, so this gaining business needs to taken care of now before it becomes an issue. My current weight is health yes but I do have a small frame and felt healthiest at 110 pounds. I do have a past history of disordered eating but I am now recovered. I would not want to go any lower than 110 pounds. I just want to feel confident in my size again. Wish me luck!

---Diana, Chicago here. I'm somewhere between 5'2" and 5'3" and have managed to keep my hips under 5'3" but they've come pretty close! I'm married to a great guy, have grown children, grandchildren and a great granddaughter. Need to lose 110 lbs in the long run. Shooting for the first 24 right now. That's 10% of what I started at and have set a target date of Feb 1 for it to be gone.

Love the idea of a team for the vertically challenged and the fat gifted!

Hi everyone. My name is Kim. I'm 5'3-1/2" and weigh 150. I'm the heaviest I have ever been. I am from the Charlotte, NC area. I have a terrific 12 year old son, a wonderful boyfriend (who unfortunate encourages my bad habits) and two adorable Boston Terriers. Looking forward to making new friends in this group!

Hi-I just found this team. This is great! I have been making a joke for a while that I'm not too heavy, just too short! Anyway, my name is Jan and I'm from Upstate NY. I'm 5 feet 2 inches tall and need to lose too many pounds to mention.

Hello everyone,

I'm Benita- wife, mom of 5 children, full time paralegal and soon-to-be college graduate. Shortness runs in my family...what can you do right?

My weight loss goals are to lose 60lbs. I've lost 8.4 so far. Weight on my 5'0 frame really shows.

Glad to meet everyone!

You know, I think it all comes down to this: how badly do you want it?

I'm Karen from Western Missouri, mom of 8, full-time nurse, part-time firefighter. I've dropped 8# so far, but just need to get more fit to be able to comfortably carry the extra 47# of gear for my job. At 5'1", I'm the shortest gal on the department.

So excited to find a board JUST for shorter people.
