    Hi all! 5 1 here 182lbs want to get down to atleast 130lbs. I have been searching discussions ppl put up abt being short and weight loss and I have to say I'm getting a little discouraged seeing ppl that are short and close to their goal weight saying they are maintaining their weight at 1100 to 1200 calories if this is gonna be true for me I kno i will gain bec I couldn't possibly eat that low just to stay the same weight. Anyone have any good news on this?

    Why is it harder for short women to lose weight. I'm struggling cos I'm 68 and older women losing weight I can understand - have plateau-ed and not lost anything for the last few weeks.

    Hi I am just starting out. I am 4ft 10.5 and need to lose 44lbs. I have PCOS, a history of eating disorder as a teen and a complete emotional relationship with food, oh and I am just shy of 40. I am going to need all of the support I can get

    Is this a typo? You weigh 141lbs and need to lose 40lbs? You're at a healthy weight now, why is the doctor concerned??

    Because we require less calories, being older you require even fewer. It's a struggle for sure. My advice would be try to burn more by being more active so you can eat more

    5'2 SW 177
    CW 167
    GW 140ish

    I'm getting my 10k steps per day (actually more like 12-15k) doing cardio 2-3 times a week and strength training 2-3 times a week.

    I'm averaging about 1500-1700 calories per day. The scale hasn't been my friend the last couple weeks, down 3, up 2, down 1, up 4. Its frustrating and exhausting but no point in giving up.

    This is my first post ever! I'm 5'1", weigh 178. I've lost 17 lbs this year and it's been tough! Goal weight is 140.

    I'm just shy of 5' and weighed in at 174 this morning. Looking to lose at least 50 lbs. Goal weight is 115-125, a number I haven't seen since I was about 13!

    I'm 5'1" and weighed in at 244 yesterday. Starting tracking from tomorrow and already worrying. No idea on a goal weight just yet, just want to lose some weight.

    I've been up and down with my weight over the years but the killer blow was a year ago when in a car accident. Six months of not moving, unable to walk and lots of weight gaining medication and I'm at my heaviest ever.

    Unsure if this will work for me, I'm a very fussy eater but what have I got to lose?
