Anyone else around 165 pounds with 20 pounds to go?

Just wondering if there is anyone else at about the same place as I am.
5 foot 2 female
Counting not just calories but macros now, aiming for around 50 grams fat, 100 protein, and 150 carbs, though myfitnesspal gives me more.

    I Started at 165 but I'm taller than you at 5 foot 10. In one month I've only lost 3.5lbs on 1200 a day. It's coming off very slowly but at least it's coming off. Trying to get down to 145-150.

    I'm 5' 2" (well, apparently 1 5/8 inches...) and 157. I'd like to lose another 30. I've already lost 63...

    I am 162, 5'6" and doing the same. Not just calories, but also macros (low Carb).
    I've been fluctuating between mid 150's to low 160's for a while now, and can't break the habit.
    I am actually trying out the ketogenic diet, low carb, high fat / protein. We'll see how it goes.
    Wish me luck.

    Feel free to add....

    Hi! Just started back seriously exercising and counting calories, I'm 5'6 and exactly 165 lbs. I felt my healthiest around 135-140 so that is my goal for right now. I always assumed that being an RN walking up and down the floor would always keep weight off but the pounds kept coming so now I'm trying to eat better/exercise.

    Hey! I am 5'2" currently 163, goal has been 130 for far too long... finally getting motivated since I gained from 150-155 lbs. Trying to cut out the breads, pasta and carb foods that make me feel bloated and tired! It's a struggle! This time around i'm taking it day by day... getting in exercise everyday even if it's just a few minutes and getting a plan to change my poor habits. Wishing all of you the best luck reaching your goals!

    I'm 5' 5" and 170ish right now and want to get down to 150ish. Started months ago at 184, got stuck at 176, but have come down over the last month +. I do a 20 minute strength or cardio 6 days a week and try to get in a short walk each day. Slow but steady!

    5'3 & 153. Want to lose 15-20 pounds by Thanksgiving. Goal weight is 136. I used to weigh 200 back in 2009. I lost 30 pounds in 2010, and 30 pounds in 2011. Lost a total of 60 pounds in 2 years! Before I got married that is! I was at my goal weight on my wedding day! I fit in a size 5 jeans! Now I'm fluctuating in a size 7/8 and have jelly arms and legs.... feel my clothes getting tighter! I need to lose weight too! Here with you!

    I'm 5'3 and 160, I'd like to get down to 130 or 140. With being as tiny in stature as some of us are, what calories are you guys eating to steadily lose? Is 1300-1400 a good number or has that been too low for some of you?

    I'm 5'3 and I've been eating around 1200 calories and feel like that's been more than enough food for me. I do eat a little more when I exercise though. :)

    5'1" and about 155. Looking to be between 120-130 by February. Tired of my clothes not fitting or getting something I think is cute then seeing it in pictures and looking HUGE!
