    It's so interesting to see women who are the same heigh and weight as me wearing such different sizes. I'm 5'4" and 143 pounds. I saw someone who was the same wearing a size 8 dress, which would be big on me even in the 150s. Body type and shape fascinates me.

    maybe they are in a different country? in the USA I think their size 8 equates to a UK size 12. and a UK size 8 is a USA size 4

    True! I should look at that. Regardless, I see some US gals weighing the same and wearing quite different sizes too.

    30lbsgone_zps73510402.jpg?t=1412610200

    Hope that worked. Pic on left is from Mother's Day (May 11th) and pic on right is from last weekend. 30 lb difference.

    SW 181.5
    CW 150
    GW 140 (for now)

    tried to help you with your picture, Tracy...it is too big though. :( would love to see your after since we have similar SW. I was about 189 and am now at 140. Check out my photos a couple pages back.

    Love your face in the before pic! I think we've all been there.

    Great loss! You look fantastic!

    That's not weird. That's just solid advice for everyone, not only short women. I went from 23% to 16% bodyfat in a few months doing resistance training 3xweek with a few days of walking and zero heavy cardio. (Also, I'm also 5'6 now instead of 5'5 - I put it down to better posture.)

    HW: 235 (maybe - probably - more)
    SW (MFP): 162
    CW: 133-138 (maintaining since Dec/13.)
