One Small Victory for this short girl!

I know that is by no means a large victory, but for me it is. The first 3-4lbs are always easy to lose, but I've always struggled getting past the 5lb mark. And today is the day... I've lost 6.6lbs! And I can't believe it. Not a huge scale victory, I'm not a smaller close size (probably because my clothes were already tight) but I'm down 6.6lbs and it so exciting and motivating. I'm 5'2" so for me every 6.6lbs is another small roll gone. I can't wait to see 10, then 15, then 20, & 30 gone! I'm doing my happy dance!

    It's a great feeling isn't it. I had never lost more than 5lbs before joining MFP (although to be fair I had never really put any effort in!) so to see the changes is really exciting. Well done and keep it up!! :drinker:

    congrats! I feel you! 5'1 myself, and it does take a while for the weight to come off. At this point I am happy losing at .5 lbs a week. Its more of a realistic goal for me so I wont be discouraged. I only want to lose another 10 lbs, so I would rather lose and keep of slowly rather than a quick fix

    keep it up!

    Great job! Small losses (or gains) are crazy noticable on we short gals! As long as we're moving in the right direction that is an awesome thing!

    Happy for you!! I am another short woman and I so understand what you are saying. 5 lbs on us is like 10 on anyone else, I think! It seems like I have a loss... then stop... then start losing again. Guess it is a life time commitment. Happy for you and keep up the good work.
