    I am 5’11” love this tall girls club! uvujxq36acfu.jpeg

    You look so great, we had the same starting body type but I have not been nearly as successful in the muscle department as you have been! Such an inspiration!

    I'm 5'10", so I'm loving all these tall lady posts! I've been using MFP for about 2 months now for accountability purposes. My fitness journey has been since college. I've had ups and downs throughout the process but my highest weight was about 184, my lowest weight was about 165 and I currently fluctuate around 173. I definitely have a larger frame, but pretty proportional. If I gain weight it's usually hips and thighs. I'm not sure how to post pictures from, but I'll update this with some pics!

    Oh! I love these photos! So inspiring! I just started my Planet Fitness membership yesterday. I'm 5'8.5" (last I knew!) and 53 years old, stuck in a dreadful perimenopause going on 5 years now.

    CW: 180.5. Again. : (
    GW: 150

    I could bench press 125# in college, and I weighed 125 in college. I was a lean fighting machine! After 3 kids, I'd be OK to be 150. At 140 in my 30s, I looked anorexic. Your photos have completely inspired me. Thanks so much for posting them.


    Hey tallies ----
    I'm 54yrs old and 5ft 8.5" - formerly 5ft 9.5" or rounded up to 5ft 10" - and the shortest person in my family other than my 7yr old grandson...the women in my family are all 5ft 10" and taller, the men all over 6ft at least.

    SW: 301 in May 2016
    CW: 261 in Aug 2017
    GW: 177

    ++ some might ask me why 177 and I'd say it's because I'm not sure what anything less than that looks like. ... I keep reading all these posts about "lifting heavy" and want to know more about that.

    Your stats are very similar to mine. I'm 51, 5'8", SW 300, GW 175. And I picked that weight randomly because it's what I weighed on my wedding day! Once I got there, I wanted a little more, so I'm currently maintaining around 166. Every one told me to lift heavy too--and I did--for one year now and it's been fantastic. I've showed these pics before, but I'll post here again so you can see the effects of that advice. Feel free to friend me if you want to talk specifics. :smile:

    300 lbs to 165 lbs:

    Amazing transformation! You should be so proud of yourself!
