Hi, I live in South Florida with DH; we have 1 grown daughter, 2 grown sons, and 2 grands. I was "skinny" twice in my life; when I was in elementary school and back in my early 30's; I now want to be at a healthy weight with a normal BMI. I am now in my 60s, so just want to be in better shape/healthier (smile)
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone....

Hey! I'm JK, 4'10", and looking at the big 3-0 this year. I just finished my schooling a couple years ago, and am planning to travel next summer. Needless to say, I want to get fit and healthy so I can bike around and do touristy things! I have never been skinny, and being so short makes the weight really easy to notice. The time has come to get the body I've always wanted, and gain some confidence while I'm at it.

Hi. I'm Jessie. I'm 4'11", 31, mother to a 7 year old girl, stepmother to a 12 year old boy. Both of my kids have ADHD, so some days are a challenge and a half. I'm also an intervention specialist for an autism program. I work with 5th and 6th grade students.

I started having weight issues when I was in middle school. I had a seizure and was put on an anti-convulsant that caused appetite increasing side effects. Every time I was taken off of the medication I would lose about 30 lbs and then gain it all back as soon as I was put back on it.

When I was 20, I had another very bad seizure. I was put on a different anti-convulsant that wouldn't cause weight gain, due to the my size this was a health concern. At this point I was fluctuating between 92 - 97 lbs, which was perfect for someone my height. After I had my daughter I've yet to lose the weight.

Hi, I'm Becky. I'm only 5'1". I have always been the shortest person out of all my friends. And it just so happens that I was also always the fattest. I have been on and off Sparkpeople a few times. But I'm hoping to get back down to a healthy weight this time.

Welcome to the "short people" team, Jennifer. I know what you mean about taller people. I will read about someone buying a pair of jeans in size 6 or 8 and they weigh what I weigh -- and I think "what the ---?" I sure can't fit into that size. But you're right, it's all relative. I see lots of people on here who's goal is the weight I started at.

Hope this works for you, as I'm sure you felt terrible at 212 or even 177. It is a lot harder when you are short -- and of course the older you get the harder it is. Try for short term goals, like maybe 1/2 a pound each week + a certain amount of exercise minutes. If you try to change everything at once, it's overwhelming!

Hugs, Eve

Hello, I am Jennifer. I'm 5' 2.5", and my starting weight and highest weight was 212 on scale at home. I am down to 177 now, and still trying my hardest to reach my goal weight of about 120-130 pounds. I joined sparkpeople on september 23, 2012. I've only struggled with weight after I started having kids, before that I was in underweight to healthy range all throughout my life.I'm new to the team, and thought all of us people who are on the shorter side need some support from each other. I see a lot of people who look skinny at 150 pounds but then they are 5' 10" wish I were taller sometimes. Wishing all my fellow teammates the best of luck.

Hi! I came back to SP in the beginning of February 2013 once again. I am 65 years old and 4' 10" inches tall. At my highest weight I was 170 pounds due to medication I was taking. Several years ago I was within 19 pounds of my goal when I had major oral surgery several times and had to be on soft food for about one year. That was the end of the new beginning for me. My last visit to my PCP had me at 160 at the end of January. Since February I have been eating and tracking my food as well as exercising more. With my history of medical issues I can not keep this weight on me. I am aiming for one pound a week. I know it won't be consistent but it will average out over time.

Hi Laura! Welcome to our Team! I am the same height as you, and when I was young I was one of those skinny people who could eat anything -- and tons of it. I paid no attention to what my BMI was, as I only weighed 105. But as I've gotten older and gained weight, I see that for a female who is 5'2" you have to weigh 135 or less to be at a healthy BMI -- so you and I both have a bit to go, don't we?

I think cold weather just tends to make you eat more too -- the comfort foods of winter!

Welcome Faith! Isn't it funny how some of the shortest gals end up with the tallest husbands?

At one time I was married to a man who was 6'2" and I am 5'2" -- it always made me feel
so dainty and tiny! lol

Welcome Jenny! That's a lot of weight to carry around for a little gal. Have you tracked your food or kept track of exercise -- there has to be a reason for such an astounding weight gain.

Best of luck at getting back to being petite. Hugs, Eve

Hi Jessica! I'm the same height as you, but almost triple your age. At your age it should be fairly easy for you to get down to 120 in time for your wedding. Keep track of what you eat, and be sure to get exercise every day! It's an easy solution -- sometimes difficult to do, but always worthwhile!

Hugs, Eve

Hello! Im Jessica, 26, 5'2 and currently 147 pounds. Im on here because i often find that diet and excersize can be very different for us shorties. For someone like me 3 pounds lost can be a noticable difference on my small frame but to someone of average height, not so much.

Im trying to lose weight for my wedding next year emoticon but also just want to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
I would love to get down to 125 or 120, but right now i focusing on the first 5 pounds.
Nice to meet you all! emoticon

Hi! I'm Jennifer and I'm 4'10"! I'm looking forward to joining this team and having support from people who are just as short as me! I have a daughter who is 5 and is the smallest in her class so just might have Mommy's gene's. I've been married for 13 years to a wonderful husband who is much taller, but that doesn't matter to me. emoticon

Hi Julie! -- I'm 4 inches taller than you, and I usually feel pretty short. I guess the good thing about being as short as you are is you can date all the guys who are too short for the tall gals.
I know it's a hassle to always have to hem your pants, etc. -- but it's just us. We're stuck with it.

Hi Limdur -- I think the thing about circling your wrist with your hand is if your thumb and little finger overlap you are small boned, touching medium boned, and not touching big boned. It is a bit misleading however because some people have very short chubby finger, some like me have long slim fingers. I go mostly by how tall you are. For example if I weighed 136 and I am 5'2" tall I would just make it into the healthy BMI, so obviously should try to get more in the center of that range. When you find the chart, keep changing your weight until it shows you at a healthy BMI == then you will know your weight range.

Hello, Limdur here. I'm 5'2" and 22 years old (though I keep getting mistaken for a 16 year old). I am hoping to lose about 20 pounds. I'm 155 currently and would like to get to at least 135 or 136. Not quite sure where I should be weight-wise, since I've been overweight for a good portion of my life (puberty is not nice to the women in my family, we just gain and gain and gain like crazy while the men stay like rails until their mid-40's).

I've so far been able to lose 45 pounds since August 2011, but have hit a bit of a weight loss rut. Part of it is probably because I'd been sick for about a month and then traveled a bit, so not many good eating options.

However, I'm planning to get back into my routine of exercising 6-7 days a week and eating healthier. I've been in charge of more meals at home recently, so hopefully I can make them a lot healthier.

(Also, about knowing what weight I need to be, I think I have a medium frame? I used to think that it was a large frame, but I don't think quite so much anymore. Is there a definite way to figure out what sort of frame that one has and what a healthy range in that height is? It has been driving me a bit batty.)

Hi Kristin -- short but sweet, that's us (as a group)! We're just half an inch apart as I am a true 5'2, eyes of blue. lol

I have never minded being short, however I was always tiny all through my adult years, I didn't gain hardly an ounce until I hit 50 -- and due to circumstances began eating all my meals in restaurants. That's a good way to gain weight very rapidly! I went up to a bit higher than you (162) and although I'm losing very slowly, I'm back to 137 now, and aiming for at least 10 more pounds to come off.

Welcome to our Team, and have a happy day!

Hi fellow short but funsized people( my friends call me FSO or fun sized one)! I'm Kristin, 22 5'1.5 or 5'2 to make it easier haha. Senior in college majoring in Speech Therapy, applying to Graduate Schools for next fall. I was heavy most of my middle school and high school years, got up to 155, then started college and got down to 120. Lowest I have been is 115, but at the moment I am 135 and want to get back to 125 to be comfortable. i'm short but have a stocky build which makes life a little more difficult, plus i'm sure we all know how it is, a five pound weight gain on someone who's 5'6 may not be noticed but on us its obvious, so frustrating! I also have the round face and I'm continually being mistaken for a 14 year old *sigh* Nice to meet all of you!

Welcome, SDLEE -- and the way you describe yourself I'd say you are already in MUCH, MUCH BETTER SHAPE than most of us. You could almost say you were in maintenance. So, you lucky gal -- all you need to tone up and get a little better definition.

You are a smart gal, and you've caught your problem early on, so you should have no problem with getting to your goal!

Hello fellow vertically-challenged! I'm 26 and 5'1" my height doesn't bother me that much, yes, I've gotten a lot of comments and it's annoying to use a step stool to reach things in the cabinet (that's where I should keep any food I shouldn't have!) but I'll happily wear both heels and flats. My boyfriend is 5'10" so its not too bad.

What really annoys me is that I'm a young professional, with a graduate degree, trying to advance my career and I'm always mistaken for a college kid/intern. Now it's not all due to height, I know I have a round face and I'm petite in general, but it's definitely a contributing factor, and if I had a dollar for every time someone told me in a few years I'll be thankful for looking so young for my age, I'd be rich!

Anyways, entering college I was around 108/109lbs and at my heaviest (also during college) I was probably around 120-125 (I didn't actually weigh myself as I was afraid to, but I've definitely been in the 118 range). In the years after college I've held steady around 115, but now I'm trying to tone up and lose those few pounds that I do feel make a difference on me, given my height/size. Hoping others out there can relate!

I'm 43, 5'1.5" and weigh 163 Lbs. Ive been on spark people for a while. A couple of years ago I managed to lose 15 lbs and it felt really good. I was more active and I could do more, running upstairs did not wind me and my knees never hurt. Unfortunately I fell of the band wagon-a factor of being short! I had to keep my calorie intake below 1200 to be able to lose and keep the weight off-and I was hungry all the time because of it. It was very difficult to keep going because of it. And it wasn't any much of a dramatic weight loss either-a pound a week. I think I eventually just gave up and went back to my bad habits.
Now here I am-weight came back and then some. I'm going to try again, but this time up the calorie intake to between 1200-1400 and see how that goes. Even if its only half a pound a week, I need to find something that I can sustain over the long haul. Wish me luck :D

Start weight 164
First goal less than 160 reached 10/5/12
Goal 2 under 155 10/26/14
Goal 3 under 150 ?
Goal 4 target weight?

My name is Lisa (nickname is Kitten due to the fact I REALLY love Hello Kitty). I am in my middle/upper 30's, married for 15yrs to a wonderful supportive man that I met while in the Army. I have two beautiful children, a Daughter, just turned 13 and a Son who is 11. They are my entire world, I don’t have any "outside" friends to speak of and family, well there is big issues there. I have been on Spark for over 5yrs on and off, mostly off the last 3yrs. My first year I went from 180 to 135 (size 20W to 8) and I loved it, felt healthy even though according to the BMI I was still "fat" ...I am only 5ft tall, disadvantages of being short, ugh. Then life happened. I hit rock bottom with depression. By Oct 2008 I did the unthinkable and went back home, which I had promised myself when I left I would NEVER go back. So we left Oklahoma and went to Wisconsin. We ended up living with my parents 11months, however about 8 months into that my mother and I had a falling out, real bad. I started having panic attacks and wasn’t able to sleep, I would go days without being able to go or stay asleep. We moved again in Aug 09, just across town, so it wasn’t much better. We lived in such a small town everyone knew what everyone else was doing. My Dr suggested that I try to go back to work in an attempt to reverse my severe social anxiety and depression. Well it back fired, I found work in Feb 2010 and had to stop by Aug 2010. Things just went from bad to worse. By this time Sept 2010 I reached my heaviest weight EVER, including pregnancy weights, 186. I was on medications for Manic Depression, severe anxiety, CFS, Restless leg syndrome and developed Fibromyalgia. By Feb 2011 I was on disability and would only leave the house when absolutely necessary about once a month or less. March of 2011 I decided I needed a program to keep me on track so I started P90X which I completed in 113 days (normally takes 90 but I had to take it a lot slower due to my body hating me). After I finished in July I for some reason hit rock bottom again and haven't been able to pull myself up since. In Dec my DH's work contract ended and has been without work since. We have moved again, from Wisconsin to Texas, to be closer to his family and get me out of the toxic location(even my DR said I wouldn’t even have a hope of getting better until I moved FAR away). We have been in TX for a little over 2 1/2 months now and I am still in a "funk". I cant seem to get and stay started. It seemed as if every friend I had made in the last 5yrs disappeared and I was doing this alone. I am usually the one everyone turned to when they needed help and now that I FINALLY admit that I need that help returned no one is there. So I deleted my previous account and now am started fresh with EVERYTHING. I need some sort of kick start and I just have to find the right leg to give it to me.

If I get to wordy just let me know to "shut it" cause I can go when I get going. Oh and if I ramble I am sorry now, my brain gets foggy at times and may seem like it makes sense but I go back later and read and sounds awful...lol. Hope I am not scaring anyone from getting to know me and I would love to get to know each of you better .

Hi Cindi -- welcome to the 5'3" and Under Team. I'm fairly new here myself, and I'm the same height as you, and my long-term goal is the same as yours. Back 100 years ago when I was your age I weighed about 114, and even at 50 years old I was only 124. Soon after that I was in a position where it was necessary to eat ALL my meals in restaurants. Gained 25 pounds without hardly noticing. Then somewhere over the years I think another 10 or 12. I'm back down to 138 now and haven't been that low since 2002, so SP is working.

Being short some of the rules don't seem to apply to us. For example, SP advises me to eat 1200 to 1550 calories per day. In reality if I don't eat only about 1000 or 1100 I can forget about seeing the scale move. It's just how life is for us. Hope you get to your goal!

Hugs, Eve

Hi! I'm 4'10". It's so hard for other people to understand what it's like to lose weight or even maintain at my height. It seems like I eat so much less than everyone else. All of my friends and family are average height or above.

Hi Everyone! I am 5'1" and about 185 lbs in my early 40s. I was always 118 or less in highschool, 128ish in my early 20s and started putting on weight in my late 20s, early 30s. Around 34 I did weight watchers and lost 45 lbs and felt awesome. Then I met and moved in with my hubby and the weight climbed back on, plus more. Although my original goal was 120, I will be so happy to get back to 130.

Hi Fellow Petites! My name is Eve and I'm 5'2. I can't say that I really mind being short, as it makes me feel more feminine and dainty. Except when I'm painting -- I'd like to be 5'11 then so I could reach a bit higher. lol I'm also very thankful there is such a thing as "petites" when I'm out shopping for clothes. Although I do have a long body, my legs are short, which is not a good thing -- looks-wise. But we have what we have, so you need to accept that. My only daughter has really long legs, so at least she didn't take after me.

I just happened to notice this team today, although I've been on SP for over 4 years. You'd think in 4 years I would have reached my goal -- but no, I'm still working on it. Improvement has been made, but there is still another 15 pounds to go in my estimation.

I am the Leader of 5 different teams. Look at my profile page -- maybe you'd like to join one of them. See you around, and good luck to all of you. By the way, I'm a Senior and glad of it.

Hi Everyone - I'm not new to SP but just saw this team. I am 5'0" and still need to get about 25 lbs. off. I used to be 5'1" when I was younger but suddenly I'm 5" even. I'm certain all of you can understand why I'm bummed about that because when you are this short loosing 1" is nothing to sneeze at! In looking at this thread, I can see there is a big age variance and so I'm sure there are many different goal weights based on those age differences - even for people who may be the same height. When I was 28 I weighed 105 lbs. but I would look awful at that low a weight now - I have 2 little grandsons and that's all I'm gonna say emoticon . Regardless of what our goals are, I am very happy to find all of you shorties because we have a particularly tough struggle with weight - we don't get much margin for error. Looking forward to reading your posts and finding out how you are handling these challenges, and maybe sharing some ideas with you all. emoticon

Hi, everyone I am so glad to have found this team. Sometimes I really don't like being so short. I have short legs and that makes it so hard to keep up with my husband . My husband is almost 6 feet while I am only 5'2. We have a 21 month old baby girl right now who will probably surpass me in height by the time she is a teenager.
