    I have always been right at 100 my whole life. I am 47 years old. I had back surgery 3 years ago and know I am 130 and can’t seem to budge it at all. I just started this program. I am walking 1 + mikes at least 3 days a week starting out and doing some yoga, weight training and watching my diet. It’s been almost 3 weeks and no drop in weight. I am getting frustrated. Any advise???

    Are you able to walk faster on your walks to get some extra calorie burn? I worked out the calories for my walk with my dog yesterday on MFP and was amazed how few it got me. I think because my pace was slow and it didnt raise my heart rate.

    Weirdly, the distance you travel is more important than the speed you travel. Walking a mile and running a mile will burn pretty much the same amount of calories, you just do the mile quicker if you run it. My advice would be to keep tracking your calories (honestly) for another week and if there's still no weight loss, then reduce the calorie target by about 10%. I would also suggest that you take other measurements than weight though - your waist measurement, chest, hips etc. as you may find you've lost a little there as you've lost fat but built a little muscle with your exercise. Good luck!

    I'm about 5'0
    Being short and staying trim can be rough, nowhere for the weight to go if you gain any it feels like.

    My thoughts as well. I feel like being short is a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to weight gain but we got this! :)

    I'm 5'1 - I've lost 60lbs so far. I'm not sure how much more I want to lose. I just want to be healthy and active.

    I used to lie and round up to 5'0".
    But I just learned that I've lost 0.5" at my last doctor appt.
    I'm still going to lie and round to 5'.

    Working on losing 5-15#, depending on how much body fat I trim off.

    5’6” and looking for support. Lost 36.5 lbs last year but I have stalled since the holidays. I’m hoping to kickstart my weight loss again since I have a long way to go.

    5’1 and 220 I’m trying to get down to 150! I have been making changes and it’s been going very well! I ordered a scale so I’m interested to see where I am when it comes in 😊

    I’m 5.2, although I try to convince myself I’m 5.3 for the sake of bmi charts. Used to live in heels but now I’m at peace with it. Just want to work on building muscle so it’s easier to make a calorie deficit! Would like to make friends for motivation!

    5’5” with (as my last GP called it) a “weirdly long torso.” Makes me look taller than I am because I carry all my weight in my hips and tush. Trying to get lean again so feel free to add me if you want a weigh in, gabbing, emotional support, cooking ideas buddy!!
