where are the 5'4" girls..... age 25+.....

Where are the 5'4" girls, age 25+, which weighed around 180 before losing weight and have no kids??? Seem like I am asking for a lot :wink: I would love to hear some success stories with pictures. I also would love to have any tips that you can give me! Last week was my first full week of logging food and I can already tell a difference! I am 5’4”, weighing around 180, age 27, w/ no kids! I gained all my weight when I got married in Fed 2007. I was around 135 then… I know I can do it! Just need some motivation and tips! My goal is to be at 135 before my 5 year wedding anniversary (Feb 24, 2012). :smile:

    The first time I lost weigh yes I exercised and strength trained during the week and cut out sodas and french fries mostly and tried to cut back on fast food in general. This time around exercising more roughly the same sometimes and trying to eat better period as in more fruits and veggies, which is hard for me right now, slow progress adding them in.

    I am 5'4" and started at around 230 and am currently the low 170's. I lost it all through eating right and exercise. I have never weighed below the 160's ever, so I have no clue what that feels like; however, I really want it bad.

    Feel free to add me anyone. :smooched:

    5'4'' or 5'5" 29 210 no kids. I'm just starting out as well. I'm just trying to cut calories and workout as much as I can inside since it's been a record breaking 107 here in Arizona this weekend. Yes, that is odd in late August. I'm just trying to slim down so I can look better in my bridesmaid dress on February 29, 2012.

    Seems to be a lot of us out there. I'm 5'4 and highest on record was 187. Have been maintaining in the neighborhood of 135 for about a year, pictures in my profile. Looking forward to seeing your success story. You're doing this!:smile:
  • I was in that boat although shorter (I am 5'1") - when I got married I was a size 12 (around 145) but then gained another 30 lbs over the first couple of years. My initial goal was to get back to a size 12 and then I took it in 5 lb increments from there. It took some time (about 2 years) but I ended up at 120 which is a decent although not slender weight for me and one I could maintain. I am trying to lose 10 more lbs to help reduce strain on my knees when I run. Good luck - you can do this if you eat right and exercise 80-90% of the time.
