    All of you ladies look fantastic. You are making or have made tremendous progress. I am 5'2". I started weighing about mid January at 181lbs I have gotten down to 164.2. I am noticing the scale going up but I am still losing inches and looking better in my clothes. I am doing quite a bit of weight training in conjunction with cardio. Have fun girls and mix it up to keep this journey interesting.

    My first post on here. Starting again today, first session at gym tonight. I'm 4'10 and half" (that half inch is important). Bit nervous of weighing in as was 196lbs last time I weighed myself and am just back from two weeks holidays. Want my knees to stop aching - would be great to get to 126lb.

    My mom is 4'11.5", she also days that half inch is important!

    Great job to all you petite ladies out there. I'm 45, 5'1". CW: 140, GW: 125. 15 lbs. to go and at my age it's getting harder to lose. I've started StrongLifts (SL)eks ago and going on my 6th week. I love to run but on a break since I started SL. I have trouble with my macro and am a total foodie. Don't have any before photos and should take a few just so I can compare myself later.

    Everyone looks great, wonderful job ladies!

    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 :)

    Amazing. How did you thin out your calves? My are like your before and have been told they will always be big.

    Wow you look awesome lady!! Congrats

    @littlmissapril Thanks! Running helped tons, believe it or not. Cardio and lean protein trimmed me down overall. They are still hard as rocks though :)

    Hi, everyone! I'm 5'2.5" and have lost 46lbs so far; aiming for 50+. Age is against me at 65 but even though it's been a slow process (at the 1 1/2 year mark) it's been really rewarding watching the scale drop and the inches. I started at 179lbs., size 14/16 US and I'm now a size 4/6 Petite. You're all awesome!

    Just bookmarked this post. I've been on mfp for a long time and just really picked it up again in the past couple of months since I've been going to the gym more. Need all the motivation/inspiration I can get. I need to lose weight for a variety of reasons but I really want to have another baby. I just turned 37 so the clock is definitely ticking.

    Height: 5'2
    Heaviest: 260-ish
    Started MFP: 234
    CW: 220
    GW: 160, then I'll re-evaluate and see how I feel.

    I am new to this post and a 1st time poster! I have bookmarked this page because it has given me so much hope! I only have my profile pic and it is kinda blurry, but I am fixing to be 45 the end of this month and I am tired of losing and gaining. It is a neverending cycle! But in the last month, I have lost 19lbs and 30 inches!! Everyone looks great! Keep up the hard work!!
    Height: 5'1

    Ok so I'm actually just shy of 5'3" but I figure I'm still short. :smile:

    The first pic is me in December at around 165 and the second is me today at 148. Trying to decide on a goal weight. The 140s seem high for someone this short, but I feel like I look ok. I figure I'll just keep at my modest calorie deficit until I'm where I want to be, or until it's no longer sustainable.

    I'm 5'2" but have a lot further to go. I started at 250 and am currently at 228. I would love to get down around 130. I need to be healthy and have never been so serious about it as I am this time. I finally don't feel like I'm dieting, I'm just living.... In a much healthier manner! Wishing all my fellow shorties out their the best on their journey!!

    I'm 5'1 and finally 111 pounds :) the before picture was summer of 2013 but I didn't really start my weight loss journey until around February 2014. Since then I've been eating very healthy (check out my food diaries) and working out 4-5x per week and doing yoga almost everyday. Feelin so happy and good about myself :)
