    Im 5’3 and my start weight was 145lbs, I got down to 108lbs but it didn’t look healthy so I gained a bit and now im 120lbs, it took me 6 months💕

    These are pretty much my exact stats now!!! However I was not planning to gain til the gyms open back up.

    I was more hopeful...

    New timeframe of June/July because my weight went up then I got a new scale and it went up even more.

    Oh well, progress in time.

    I'm hoping to post progress pics in May!

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017

    CW: 113.8
    GW: 110
    Height: 5 ft

    Once I started to see some definition in my arms and stomach (two lines lol), I was hooked. I want more muscle so like @beautyonthebeach83 once I get down to 110 lbs the plan is to gain 5 lbs of muscle and keep evaluating from there.

    (Many thanks to my husband for the great idea. <3 )

    Hello, thanks for starting this discussion. I am 5'2" and currently 183, down from 203. It really is a struggle. I have to be really strict with food. I am open to any tips anyone may have. I try to eat 1200 calories per day but I find that when I exercise a lot I get really hungry. My theory is that it is all about calories, but I need quality and "clean" foods. I am following a book called "Always Hungry" by Dr. Ludwig. I like his ideas because he promotes healthy and balanced eating, cutting carbs. I have to eat way less than the book starting point advice. My daily goals are approximately: carbs<100g, fat = 50g, protein = 100g. I exercise six days a week and I am still trying to tune my exercise habits. Dori


    You should be able to eat more on days that you work out. My current goal is carbs<100g. too.

    You can visit www.mybodygallery.com and actually input a height/size/weight/body shape to see what other people look like compared to you. I love it!

    Good idea! I'll have to check that out.

    Me at my heaviest on the right 82kgs on the left me today at around 56kgs. That's about a 26kg weight loss. I initially lost 20kgs then gained 10kgs back then lost a further 15kgs. It has taken several years to get to this point. I am now in a good place mentally and emotionally with a good support system so I know I will not gain all the weight back again. I'm now currently doing a bulk trying to gain weight and build muscle. You all look great and have done a fantastic job!

    What's ur height?
