    5'10-11 just starting CW 230 Goal 170

    I'm the same height (my doctor says I'm 5'10" but I refuse to believe I shrank an inch!) and started at 237, currently around 184. It's taken me almost 2 years to get this far but I quit a couple of times and gained some back. Feel free to add me since we're pretty close to weight loss twins!

    Hey everybody! I think this is my first post. Anyways I'm 22, 5'8 and I've lost about 60ish pounds since I was 18. Here's a picture of me around my heaviest (203 pounds) when I was 17 in high school and body progress pictures from the last year while I've been trying to get the "summer body" I have always wanted haha. Over the past 4 years I've stopped eating meat, working out (almost) everyday, drinking like a gallon of water a day, and recently dramatically cutting back on dairy. I didn't know where else to post this, but the picture on the very right was taken this morning and i'm getting excited with how my abs are starting to poke through the chub lol.

    Awesome work! Welcome to the forums. I can see quite a difference. Keep it up!

    You aren't alone! I was so shocked to see I am barely 5' 10" and I used to easily be 5'11". I've seen a couple of others in the success stories say they got better posture as they lost weight. Could gravity be pulling on my fat and shrinking me? It would be so cool to not only be back to my pre baby weight but my pre baby height too!

    You women are all goddesses! This thread is so inspiring to me. I'm 5'8" and about 205. I want to get down to 150 (155 might be more reasonable).

    It took me a long time because I wanted to do it safely and have it be sustainable but it was totally possible given the stress of transitioning from high school to university and moving 3 times in the past 4 years. I have no advice for shorter term weight loss as I found that the slower method of just gradually exercising more and eating less came naturally over time with being more disciplined about saying no to things and embracing things I used to say no to. I still eat a lot of what I want (I.e burritos) but have learned to always get a small and to ask for no cheese and sour cream and it saves a lot of calories. You realize that things taste just as good without the added extras anyways. Good luck!!!
