    5ft 0", 9lb and lots of inches down since January. Don't have a goal weight but would like to work on building muscle and reducing body fat.

    Everyone looks great, wonderful job ladies!

    I'm 5'1.5", SW ~180, CW ~129, no longer have a goal weight. I'm focusing on dropping body fat % at the moment.

    Used the 7 point caliper method, measured in at 22.1% body fat. Stomach progress: 4pleak0weebb.jpg

    Looking to get down to 18-19% BF and have visible abs :)
    Good job!

    Shorties unite! Love this post! You all look fabulous and it really helps inspire me too. Starting weight 165 (5'2") and down to 154 right now. Goal is 120-130. Always felt good at that weight. I am excited to have lost and encouraged to continue!

    Thank you all for being such an inspiration. This has been so motivational. As a fellow shortie, I have a long journey ahead of me (80+ lbs), but I am so excited to "see" what the end product may be for me.

    I haven't taken any before pics but you ladies are inspiring me! I'll work on it tomorrow! I'm 24 and 5'2" and my CW is around 140, depending on the scale. My lowest weight was 121 about 4 years ago, but I wasn't doing any lifting so I wasn't very strong. The funny thing is I still didn't think I looked my best at the time but knowing how much my confidence has gone down, I'd like to get back there. My goal is to get to around 125-130 and stay there, but be stronger and get my endurance back up. I struggle with disc pain and it tends to demotivate me but I just got an epidural so I hope I can focus more on how good exercise makes me feel and less on how much it hurts!

    Here are the befores, just getting on board this week. Excited to see results this summer!

    you all look great. Congrats!

    Anyone here in their 40's? I'm 134lbs and 5'2' and would love to get down to 120. I have been trying for awhile now and my body is really not on board with this idea. I'm feeling defeated and would love to see at least a couple pounds come off so I know it's possible. Any words of wisdom from any ladies my age?

  • titotito48titotito48 Member Posts: 120 Member Member Posts: 120 Member
    I am 49. I lose better with exercise at this age. I use to be able to do it with diet alone, but it seems way too slow now.

    5'2", started at 226, currently hovering between 166 and 168, but I'm stalled, stalled, stalled. I lost about 50 pounds in the first six months, and only about 10 in the next four months. I'm still technically in the "obese" BMI category, and I'd love to lose another 30ish pounds, but I'd settle for another 15 if only I could get ANYWHERE.
    Would love to hear from any of you amazing success stories if you ever plateaued HARD and how you got a move on. Also happy to have any new friends - shorties or not! :smile:

    Pictures are one of me at my highest - 226 - and two from the past few weeks where I'm approx 168.

    I am 39 5ft 1 and started in January at 164 and a tight size 14. My goal is 130. Today I am at 146.2 & I just got home from old navy where I found out I'm a loose size 10. YAY HAPPY DANCE.

    You're a loose size 10 and you weigh that little? I'm 5'3 175 and a loose size 10....lol

    Add me too! :) SW: 148 CW:148 GW: 125
    I really need motivation. I can't help but eat a little bit of junk food l, throughout the day. I don't gain weight, and I don't lose weight. I find it really hard to lose weight. Been tracking calories for 32 days now. Been doing 30 day shred, and gained a pound. I'm hoping it's muscle, since I'm working out.

    I started at 265 and about a month ago hit 218 and stalled out. no gain, no loss, 218 for 3 weeks. Last week I got back in the pool. I start out with 10 laps at a comfortable pace. I rest for 2-3 minutes then go for 12 laps. After eavh rest I add two more laps to the next set. Yesterday I got up to a total of 200 laps (which never would have happened if I said swim 200 laps, it was the small doable intervals, I tricked my inner defeatist into accomplishing more than I thought I could). On my way out of gym I got on the dreaded scale and OMG... 209.

    I found something that I love doing and then tricked myself into being better at it. Give yourself a goal you know you can reach and then push yourself to do it again plus a liitle extra, then doi it again. We get stuck in comfortable ruts and our body just hunkers down. You just have to find a new piece to add to the mix to kick your body out of that comfort zone.

    I have faith in you. We are so much better than the bulge!

    I also have a pair of jeans in my closet in every size between where I started and where I want to end up. Every weekend I try on the next size down. Even when the numbers on the scale didn't change, the fit on the jeans did. That definately helped keep me motivated. And throwing away the previous size helped too. More than the jeans, it was Kicking that size ME to the curb, and that feels amazing.
