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

    I'm 5'10" same starting weight and would LOVE to be your weight! Thank you for the visual inspiration! You've done an amazing job! Can I ask how long your journey has been?

    Almost two years. Definitely had some slip ups in there but been focusing on macros and lifting! Have found many weeks where I don’t lose any weight but I lose inches. It’s awesome

    I am 5'8 1\2 and carry all my weight gut and waist. I am 151

    lbs and should be about 140. I am 60 years old and high risk for diabetes type 2. I have a monogenic diabetes called ModyType2 which I am sharing for informational purppses. It is often diagnosed as Type 2 and then if doc.prescribed meds ior insulin it is downhill from there. Normally ModyType 2 are tall and slender and need to.control by lessening sugar and carbs. Will share some before gut pictures when I get indoor bike.

    I would like to see your pics. I am your height. Your current weight is lower than my ideal weight of 70-74 kg! I carry my weight in my legs. Maybe that makes a difference. I need to lose around 18 kg to get there. I will surely die of despair ig I have an additional 10 kg to lose.

    This maybe will be upsetting to some, but I hope it's a wake-up call for those who are misled: there is no such a thing as big-boned figure. Bones are the same size. Knowing and facing the problem is part of the solution for it.

    That's not really true, you know.

    I don't need a wake-up call. I'm not "misled". I'm 5'9" - 136 lbs - 20% body fat, so I don't have anything 'problems to face' or solutions I need to seek. The fact of the matter is - most of my bones are larger, broader and heavier than the average woman of my height. This has been determined in an athletic performance lab by a medical professional.

    My rib cage is much broader than the average woman. If you measure the bone from the inside point of my clavicle to the point it joins my shoulder joint, that bone is way longer than an average woman of my height. The breadth of bones that determine my shoulder width is wider than the average man of my height. I've also had a bone scan, and my bones are denser/heavier than an average woman. Ironically, I have tiny wrists and ankles - much smaller than the average for my height. I always say I have a mixed frame size.

    There are absolutely variations in bone size and bone density. While these variations are no excuse for carrying extra body fat, the variations still exist. Bones are NOT 'the same size'.

    Height: 5’9”
    SW August 2018: 355
    CW January 2019: 315

    Long road ahead. Same shirt in picture - fits a lot differently!!!

    That’s fantastic! I remember I had a short dress that I wore one year as a top because I was heavier and filled it out too much. When I lost weight I finally wore it as a dress! Your progress is inspiring! :)

    This post is amazing.
    I'm 5ft 9 but only at the start of my journey so nothing to add yet.
    But fantastic work everyone! Given me so much motivation.

    Love this thread!!!! Keep the pictures coming!!

    Hoping I can add mine at some point.....

    I'm 5'8" and currently weight 181 :( It's very depressing to me, and my weight has just crept up and up and up in the last 5 years or so.........

    Naturally thin to now looking pregnant at 50.......YUCK!

    Anyways, my goal is 10 pounds at a time.....hopefully the first 10 by mid may....or some inches anyways :)
