5'2" shorty loses 75lbs

Broejen Posts: 413 Member
On March 30th I reached the milestone of losing 75lbs. It's hard to believe I was that much overweight and still have about 15lbs to go. That's a lot of extra fat for anyone, let alone someone who is 5'2"! As always, I took progress pics and a picture of me in my Before Jeans. :)


And here are my measurements as of today along with the difference from a few weeks after I started.
Neck- 14.8 to 12 (-2.8")
Waist- 42 to 30 (-12")
Hips- 47.5 to 36.5 (-11")
BMI- 39.1 to 26.1
Body Fat- 52.3% to 30%
Clothing- size 18/20 jeans & 2XL shirts to size 10 jeans & small/medium shirts.

ETA: About 95% of my exercise is walking, on average 10km at a time. I have tried some DVD workouts and sometimes use the treadmill for running intervals too. I prefer walking outside to anything else though. I do not lift...yet.

    Awesome job!!
  • Your progress in PHENOMENAL! Holy geez!

    I'm 5'2" on good days and 5'1" on regular days... so I feel that shorty statement with gusto. I lost 85lbs a year back, and it took so long to see large progress because of my stature. I've gained back some since then, but your progress...


    (Seriously fantastic job!!! xo)
