At 5'10" i remember in high school hitting 130 and being told by a friend of my father's that she was worried I was anorexic as she thought I looked sick...way too skinny. And looking at pictures, yeah, I agree. I think I was perfect at 150....I have lost 51 and am down to 224 so I am getting there. I like being so tall the when we lose 10 lbs.....it shows! Just wish I wasn't short waisted......I could have been 6'!!! ugh.....So glad I am not the only one that has encountered the - my you are fat at........so disheartening....

It truly is frustrating. Everyone seems to have this idea in their heads that women in the 130s+ are overfat. If I was 140 I think I might be dead.

However, it was refreshing to read back through this thread and remember that I'm not alone in the 'you wear it well' 'but you're shaped well' etc. group.

I'm so sorry. I'm not shocked though it's really common and sad. At my 6 wk postpartum check up my ob gyn who by the way critiqued my weight gains my entire pregnancy, my hw was 200, but at the check up I weigh 156 which was ten pound lighter than my pre pregnancy weight. My clavicle bone proruded and you could almost see the bones in my chestplate. She went on to chide me saying I needed to work on getting the weight off. Seem like any med professional I had at some point or another had something to say about my weight.

When I was discussing my weight loss goals with my orthopedic doctor - he asked what my goal was, and I said, "I'd be elated if I got down to 168" - and he cocked his head and said, "Really?" And I said, Yep. And then proceeded to tell him that right now I'm super obese. And that I have to lose 60 pounds just to get to very obese. - I can rattle off each of the "milestone" weights that I need to be in order to get my BMI to each level. He seemed to think that I could "easily" get down to 150. I wanted to cry and say, "Can we just focus on me getting out of the 300s first?" It is amazing how at 168 which would be perfectly healthy and acceptable of a number because of my height - seemed too large of a number, even for a health care professional.

Bit by bit, right?

Why in the world would you ever tell a short person how much you weigh? In real life, there are only about 4 people (not including doctors!) who have any clue what that number is. I compare myself not to other women, but to my father (from whom I inherited the linebacker shoulders) and a male friend of mine who is very musclar and about my size. I just add an extra 20 pounds for boobs :)

I do tell people how much I have lost, but never my total weight.

One of my Zumba instructors was complaining the other day about losing too much weight and not being able to keep weight on...she announced her weight and it was exactly HALF of what I weigh. :( Honestly, I think that I might be in better all-around shape than she is though, and I have no problem keeping up with her. I like being tall and strong. I think that I would feel vulnerable if I were that tiny.

I wish I could remember how much I weighed in high school and at my lowest weight. I *think* that it was 190, but I am not entirely sure as that was so long ago.

I just found this team and I'm so excited! I'm 5ft 11 and totally relate to everything you're saying!

I really like being tall now (I'm 31) but it took a long time but sometimes I would still just like to be small.

On the upside, think how many less calories you'd need if you were any shorter!

How did you guys get inside my head??

I am amazed at reading your comments.

This is the first time in my life that I've ever felt REALLY GOOD about being tall. My husband of 4 years has made the difference. He really likes tall girls.

He will (respectfully) comment on actresses while watching TV. He'll say "She's a tall girl", like it's the highest complement. He also comments (again respectfully) about how much he likes it when the University that is in the building next to his work downtown is in session because the 6' + volley ball girls are around for eye candy.

He makes me feel beautiful in high heels, which make me 6'2"!!

I wish I had found him sooner! I also think there are a lot of people with a pro-tall attitude (why are models tall??) - they're just silenced by societies arcane & ridiculous notions of femininity. I think those notions are changing, though!

I know this is an older topic but I'm new to the group so up it goes!

As others have said, being tall is both a blessing and a curse. When I hit my growth spurt at age 13 I weighed 145lbs and was about 5'8 (I'm 5'10 now). I remember seeing the number and thinking I was fat because I topped all my friends by a good 30lbs. I didn't understand weight versus height back then and the number bothered me a lot.

Through high school I yo-yo'd with dieting and of course put on a lot of weight. As a grown woman with a lot more knowledge of healthy weight and how height factors in, I try not to compare myself to shorties. It's still hard when they compare themselves to me though and ask me why I want such a high goal weight, etc. and being told I hide it well never feels like a compliment.

I remember the first time I told my hubby my weight. I had just dropped below the 300s and was so proud of myself. When I told him the number his eyes got huge like a deer in headlights and he didn't know what to say. I felt bad for him because as a guy there's really no right thing to say. After a few moments he uttered "wow, I had no idea you were that big." Yeah. Not the best comment in the world but he is a guy after all and didn't mean anything negative by it.

I've also struggled with not feeling feminine. I'm 2" taller than my husband and being overweight my entire adult life I've never had what I thought was a nice body. Being tall is just one more direction I'm "big". I'm working on changing that though and am looking forward to having long slender limbs - I think tall healthy chicks have rockin' bodies and I can't wait!

I'm so glad I found this group. Rock on tall girls! emoticon

I can completely relate as well. I tell my family and friends all the time that i'm obese, and fat, and need to lose weight, and they're like your not fat. I always have to be like you wanna see where I hide it lol. People don't get it that tall ladies weight a lot more. I always wondered if I could stump a carnie on how much I weigh and win a prize emoticon

Ahhhh! I'm so glad I found this group!

Copy and paste everything everyone said and stamp my name on it and it'll be accurate!

And to add to the comments on clothing sizes... I haven't always been fat. At my thinnest, I was 5'9" and I wasn't able to get the scale to drop below 140 pounds, no matter how hard I tried, and I couldn't get into anything smaller than a 12, and people were worried about my health.

I always felt so fat. No one cared about height. It was treated like this magical, beautiful thing that existed all on its own and didn't have extra weight associated with it. I was always the tallest girl, usually the tallest person in class (I was occasionally beaten by a boy, usually the same boy, lol - he was just plain old tall), and so on. Thankfully, they never weighed us or that would have been a total shocker because of course, everyone would have just looked at the number and ignored the reasons behind it.

Anyway, my target weight now is 155. And that'll be difficult because it'll be at the bottom end of what's probably considered healthy for me. Forget 140. I go so sick back then. I became badly anemic. And I would like to thank the media for making me think that 125 was "fat."

As for "you hide it well..." I don't think I've ever had anyone say that to me, but then again, I don't ever tell anyone my weight so they just never get a chance to make such a stupid comment. I *already know* that people who LOOK bigger than me weigh LESS than I do. I won't open myself up to that kind of abuse.

omg! All the thoughts expressed here I can agree with 100%.

Tallest in my classes in grade school. Also the "heaviest" although proportionate to my weight, I got made fun of.

Graduating HS I was at 180.

At my lightest adult weight around age 22, after loosing weight through the college years, I was still at 160 and wearing a size 12 or 10. BTW, did sizes change over the years? and since when is a size 0 the perfect size for a woman? ugh!

My life rollercoaster of differing weights from 155 - 248, I have always heard YOU HIDE IT WELL. I'm I supposed to say "thanks"?

I was trying to decide on a SparkGroup and this discussion topic made the choice for me! So happy to see so many girls who relate to this one comment. You hide it well may sound like a compliment but it just makes me feel worse about my weight, and myself in general. *I'm* not happy at the weight I'm at and I know I can look better, who cares where it's hiding!

I love that this thread is still going because as more of us tall ladies join and find it, we feel "at home." I was trying to think why I've always had weight and self-esteem issues. I remember thinking I was fat in 5TH GRADE. Why? Because we had weigh-ins in the nurse's office on health day in front of the whole class. I was already 5'5" and not only the tallest girl in my class, but the tallest student. I also hadn't lost my baby fat (that would happen when I sprouted to 5'9" in 7th grade). I weighed more than everyone in the class, except for one BOY who was clearly overweight. No one explained to me that it was OK for me to have a different weight because of my height. So when I weighed over 110 lbs. and everyone else in the class was still in double-digits, it was traumatic.

So why does it still hurt when someone finds out my weight, or guesses way lower(especially knowing I'll never be that weight)? I think an earlier post hit the nail on the head. "It's as though all women are supposed to weigh no more than 145 pounds, no matter how tall we are." After all, the only other tall women everyone is exposed to on a daily basis are super models and we all know they're not over 145. And short women should weigh under 145. Therefore, the societal expectation is that ALL women should, ideally, weigh under 145.

Let's change the perception, ladies, and hold our heads high!(er than everyone else's heads) emoticon

I love that this group AND thread exists!! I've always been one of(if not THE tallest) girl in my classes in school and now working at one, I'm surrounded by girls that are shorter than me. I don't notice the height difference too much anymore, I usually overguesstimate their heights but when they gather together and talk about diets and how they feel 'so fat' with weights ranging anywhere from 110-150, I just keep my mouth shut. My goal is around 150, too much more than that and I think I'd be sickly! In grade school a teacher(think she was ~5') had actually told me that I didn't have to worry as much about putting on weight because tall people hide it better. Maybe she intended it as a compliment, but I can sure notice it, doesn't seem to 'hide' that much better. Yes, our bodies might be stretched longer but it doesn't exactly mean that added weight is going to distribute evenly and become unnoticeable. The scale still measures each extra pound the same :-P

Amen to everything in this thread!! I especially get this because I am very hourglassy and people see the narrow waist but never the giant hips :D. One benefit, though: you can always beat the "guess your weight" "game" at carnivals! They are never anywhere close.

This may be a bit backwards, but my goal is to be a size 8 and weight 190. Muscle weighs more than fat, right? Mostly I'm kidding, but you they get my point. I am so tired of people gasping when I tell them my weight (5'10, 170lbs, sz 10), and the doctor charts that say I should weigh 125. If I ever weigh 125 - something is wrong, please take me to the emergency room.

I hear the same things. It is frustrating, but there is not a whole lot I/we can do about it. It takes more weight to show that I have gained. I could tell that things were getting out of control because my face was starting to show it. My clothes take longer to reflect the changes.

I just got this the other day from a friend. She put it that I was concerned with the "numbers" and that I ought not to be because I am tall. 43 more pounds to go until my goal and that does sound like a lot, but it's all there. I fell back on my old standard"I have a lot of places to put it." That's about all I have, and it's true! I'm very deceiving, appearance-wise, because I don't technically "look" overweight. It spreads out in a more shallow layer than most because it has more area to spread, but that fat is there, I promise! ha! My hiney is like the humps on camels...that's where I store most of my reserves for long trips across the desert. Well, apparantly I haven't been on long enough trips (and I live in Georgia) because those fat reserves are still there...but like I said, it has more area to spread out.

Just because I carry it well, though, doesn't mean I ought (or want) to be carrying it.

Oh, this team makes my heart so happy. When I first joined SP a few days ago, I immediately knew I didn't fit in with the people with GW of 120ish, even though we had the same amound to loose. In the ten minutes that I have been in this team, I have been chuckling the whole time.

I always get these comments from my MIL. I used to wear a size 16 and so did she, but she is only 5'6'' and I am 5'11''. She used to say, "but you carry it so well", and I would look at her increduously. Did she not see the fat rolls? Crazy woman... Haha...

Also, I have lost 45 pounds and only gone from a 16 to a 12. If I was 5'2'', I would have gone down like eight sizes by now. So that is frustrating too...

Oh being tall....

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Oh yes, this happens to me all the time! Whenever I go to the doctor they start the old-fashioned scale at 125 - really??? You think I weigh under 150? They just about fall over when I tell them to start at 175. I would be teeny tiny at 125!

When I lost 20 lbs last summer, ALL my coworkers somehow found it to be appropriate to comment on my weight and how much they thought I weighed, etc. They couldn't believe that I was "soooo skinny" (I was at 163 at that point). So I am dreading those comments as I work hard to get back where I was and then some.

ETA: When I got down to the 160s I was STILL wearing a 12 to 14 in pants, they just looked radically different on me! I still couldn't fit into a 10 even though I had lost 20 lbs. I know you ladies can relate!

Ha! I've heard it so much all my life that I'm convinced it's true! And my tight clothes are proof that I believe I can continue to "hide" it. But, I have started a new chapter, I'm not going to go out and buy any more clothes to accommodate my weight gain so I have to get physical, watch my portions and stop eating when I'm bored! Anyway, most people are at least fifteen pounds off when they guess my weight. And many years ago, when I worked out five days a week and at a healthy weight I always heard "you're so skinny" and I was sick of that also, but it would be nice to hear it again. emoticon

I know this is an old thread, but I'm new.

I just started a thread about what I ought to weigh and mentioned this topic. Right now, I'm probably about 225-230, unhealthy for me (6') no matter how I slice it. When I weighed 215, I had nurses using the old-fashioned sliding scale slide that weight to 160 and go up from there. One nurse kept sliding it and having to move it. Finally I told her to start at 200. She almost fell over, she couldn't believe I weighed that much. I just tell people I have lots of places to put it.

My question and concern is if I already look like I'm close to 160 (my goal weight right now) will I look like a skeleton when I actually get there? *sigh* I hate it when people either insinuate that or just say it flat out.

I haven't gotten this in a while because most of my friends these days are boys, but I remember how much it would piss me off. Now I just enjoy the fact that my husband and my friends are clueless - LOL, at my lowest, when I weighed about 175, one of my guy friends thought I weighed 120. Hardy har har, boys always think we broads are filled with sunshine and pixie dust, I think!

OMG, I totally agree! Why do they think it's a compliment to say that we hide our weight well. It's just like our shoe size. Seriously if I wore a size 5 shoe being almost 6ft tall I'd fall over ALL THE TIME!!! I just like to say....well your short and you DON'T hide that well! :P I know they are trying to be nice but DANG!!!! It's just like asking when the baby is due when there is NO BABY on the way!!! What is WRONG with people. Seriously, hasn't people learned that unless it says BABY with a big arrow...DON'T SAY ANYTHING!! Why would it be any different with tall women and their weight...if you were 100 pounds at 6ft tall...you'd be see through!

I am a 6'2" skier, and I have to have the bindings on my skis reset every year because I am also an instructor and it's a safety requirement. One year, my dad dropped off my skis to the tech and guessed my weight about 30 pounds too low! I had to bring those babies back and have the bindings set properly so they would not release if I put too much force on them.

He would never guess that I actually weighed the same as him at the time :/ Now there is a little more separation and my goal is to be at the weight that he originally guessed (it's also a healthy BMI of 22).

I don't have much to add, just to say YES. This has happened to me my whole life... the addendum on the end of a sentence meant to make me feel better.

"But you dress so well for your shape."
"But your so well-proportioned."
"You carry it SO well."

That's nice but right before that they've probably said something they don't realize is really, really insulting. Or when they complain about their own number and you feel like crawling under a floorboard immediately.

Recently I had my doctor kind of drop his jaw at me when I told him my weight. I was going in for a prescription and he hadn't weighed me in a while, but he was surprised that I'm "carrying so much weight" because he couldn't tell I weighed "that much". He was being honest that he was surprised and on one hand it made me feel great and on the other the "that much" part is dreadfully embarrassing.

I like the idea of saying 700 pounds next time because SOMETIMES it feels that this is the answer they will hear regardless.

Keep it up ladies, you are all great.

I just tell people I weigh 700 lbs. or something they know is not true. Otherwise, I find comparing weight with others is dangerous for me, and can lead to bad habits. I've adopted the mentality that my weight is only my doctor's business.

TallGirl, that's one way to look at it. The other is that you have to gain well more than 13.5 pounds to increase a pants size. :) I'll take it.

I know what you mean. I look at my legs and I think they look like they're toning up but my pants are still tight so maybe it's all in my head.

You know what totally sucks? I've lost 13.5 lbs. I haven't even gone down a pant size. Seriously if I were shorter I'd see much more in the way of results by now.
For pitty's sake! I'm going to have to lose 25 freakin' lbs to go from a 16 to a 14!!!! Argh!

At my annual medical, the nurses who took my weight were shocked at how much I weighed, and then one said, it's because you're tall. LOL!

I love being tall! I have carried three pregnancies almost to seven months before people knew I was pregnant, so yes, it does have it's benefits!

This is a hilarious thread because we all have such similar stories! Last summer I gained about 40 pounds & I felt just awful about it so I told my boyfriend if he ever noticed me gaining weight then he was supposed to say 'Hey Fatty, lay off the food!' And he said, " I didn't even notice that you gained any weight." WHAT? It was 40 freakin pounds!

I got a new General Practitioner & went in to see him..turns out I'm diabetic, & losing weight is even more important now. I couldn't help but grin, though..

Doc: *looks at my chart* You really weigh 235??
Me: *groans* Yep.
Doc: How tall are you??
Me: 5'10".
Doc: Ahh, you're tall for a woman. You don't look like you weigh that much.

Yay for being tall, or I would certainly be round! lol

It's so true!!! I had heard that everywhere including here!!! I tell them my weight does not match what it should for my height according to ht/wt ratio charts everywhere, including the dr.'s office and I am overweight--it's just all in my belly/waist!!But I am CLOSE to GOAL AND getting my cholestrol down to NORMAL!!!! emoticon emoticon

This so hits the nail on the head! At 6ft tall, my mother tells me, "You are never going to be a size 2." Grrr. how about a size 12? I'd be good with that!

I was working with a very short colleague- 5ft. She weighed 205. I did too. She absolutely would not believe it. As we both lost the weight, it showed on her so quickly. Not on me. I think she would go down a size about every 10 pounds lost. More like 25 pounds for me.
I do feel kind of guilty that I can eat more calories a day and still lose weight. I don't join any of those calorie challenges because everyone else seems to be limited to 1400 calories!

SPOT ON! This topic is fantastic! I've always had tiny, petite friends. I went to high school in a predominantly Italian neighborhood, and I was the big "Irish-Dane." I had to date from other schools because literally there were no boys my height. My best friend was 5'3 and 105#s. I really struggled to identify as feminine and "pretty" because I felt like the big side-kick.
When I met my husband, he estimated almost exactly 30 pounds less than the scale showed, and didn't tell him for years. It wasn't until he came with me to a doctor's appointment and I made him look away while I was weighed that we even had "the conversation."
I actually find people looking at you differently after telling them. Sure, their first response is "no, you can't weigh that!" Then the obligatory "you hide it well." But then I feel very self-conscious because there are just certain milestone weights that people have judgements about, like not thinking that anyone over 150 would be at an "ideal" weight. I wonder if I over-estimate people's weight because of my perspective? I always see those covers of the tabloids and think "yeah, right...that was just 10 lbs." Perspective is something I have to work through.
I chose the "pounds to lose" weight-loss ticker instead of the actual weight one because I thought people would not believe me or take me seriously about running and fitness if they knew my weight. I was inspired by the daily spark today that talked about the "anamoly" of the "fat" runner. Maybe one day I'll get a t-shirt that says "this is what 180 looks like." LOL

ALWAYS let them see you sweat!

Hello, 5'10" over here. After a long 6 months I've dropped 30 lbs which I'm thrilled about. People are noticing and saying nice things but if we talk about weight loss and I mention I have another 30 to go before I meet my first goal I get the "that's too much" comments. I think people are just trying to be nice and "you're great the way you are" and "BMIs are a crock anyway" which I appreciate but they have no idea.

Just a reminder why I'm doing this for me.

Ok, I just joined this group - hope you don't mind... I'm 5'8.5" Please accept me even though I'm a "shorty" LOL :)
This conversation really speaks to me! On top of being tall, I'm just muscular. Even at my current weight, I have defined calves and thighs. I have broad shoulders- so much that when the doctor saw me come out head first when I was born, he declared "It's a boy!"

I've been hearing this a lot lately. People really see me as much thinner than I am. I got down to 165 one time, and frankly I DID look too thin. I've seen pictures. You know that weight women can get to where your face just starts looking older? That's me at 165. That's why I made my goal 180.

Screw those charts!!! I'm an individual and I do not fit into your little boxes that do not take muscle mass into account. I mean, my boyfriend is 5'9" and 240 pounds. Technically obese on the charts. But he's a body builder! Probably less than 10% body fat. Once I considered that I told those charts to take a hike and stop making me feel bad about myself.

Anyway, hi other tall girls! I wear heels that make me at least 5' 11" if that helps :)

It's as though all women are supposed to weigh no more than 145 pounds, no matter how tall we are. Nobody would blink twice at a man who said, "I'm 5'11" and I weigh 170 pounds," but for some reason 170 pounds sounds like a lot for a woman to weigh.

I get those comments but being as large as I am I never found it insulting. I know that if I was shorter I would definately been much worse off!

The funny thing is (I've always been overweight) in early highschool, I though I was losing weight because I went down a few jean sizes but it was a growth spurt! LOL

As I've never had a significant weight loss as of yet I haven't heard the "too skinny" comment... I'm actually looking forward to hearing that one day when I'm much closer to my goal weight!

I have to concur with everything said here, and it's why I'm in this group too. People don't even notice when I lose 10 lbs, and then they look at me like I'm a freak when I say I have 10 more to lose.

But hey, on the plus side, the BMR of the tall lady is undoubtedly higher than our shorter sisters, so creating a daily 500 calorie deficit really doesn't mean I still can't eat fairly full meals each day. :)

I usually get the comment "Stop Lying". Why would I lie about being the weight that I am? Then I tell them I wear a size 14/16/18 (depending on where I am in my weight), they look at me like I have 10 heads. But then they think for a moment and say "well you are tall". Like I don't know that!! emoticon

I've gotten also the "You Hide It Well" statement. Just because I hide it doesn't mean I'm healthy or should be overweight.

I wonder sometimes.....

I've definitely had more than a few boyfriends weigh less than me and significantly low-ball their estimate of my weight. I used to think it was sort of embarrassing having to explain that I weighed more than they did, haha. It's just a number though, so who cares?

Blackandi, I don't think anyone's ever told me I look sick, but I have an aunt who lives on the other side of the country and I only get to see her a couple times a year, and every time I see her, she insists I've lost weight... which isn't always the case. I don't know if she just expects me to be bigger because I'm so tall?

Also, I made the "but you're tall, you can hide it" comment to my boyfriend last night, purely jokingly. He's 6'7" and he was grumbling about how when he gains weight, the first place it seems to go to is his belly... the guy is just shy of 200 pounds though, so. :p

Well, there is an up side! I went to my 20th high school reunion this past weekend and everyone said I look just like I did 20 years ago! Woo hoo! Of course I was 148 back then and 175 now, but apparently no one can tell?? I guess sometimes the height works in our favor.

I definitely got the comments about "you've lost enough, you don't need to lose anymore" from my family last time I was home. I have 'at most' 20 pounds more to lose (I'm already down 30), but some people don't realize that 20 pounds on me @ 5'11" is barely noticeable, whereas on someone 5'2" it's a TON of weight.
I mean I think I realize what my body looks like and how much more I can stand to lose...at least more so than family who haven't seen me in a swimsuit in like 6 years!

I just joined this team about 10 minutes ago and I love it already!! You all totally hit the nail on the head about how people perceive my weight because I am so tall.

One of my best girlfriends, who is 5'4" and constantly craning her neck to look up at me, and I were talking about these weight perceptions one day and my complaint was that if I am heavier, people see me as sasquatch and if I am thinner, people see me as gangly. Her response was that if she is heavier, people see her as a bouncy ball and if she is thinner, people see her as a little pet to put in their pockets.

I guess there really is no winning - we can only be happy with ourselves :) And, I'd much rather be tall!

Good point about BMI. The "healthy" range for 5'11" is 132 to 178. I'm just under 178 now, so according to BMI, I could lose another 46 pounds before I risk being too thin. LOL Of course I know better. 165-168 is ideal for me.

I'm right about where Bluerose is.... just abve 200 lbs, and 25- 30 lbs left to loose.

I haven't said anything to anyone (other than my Dh) about my weight loss/ now much more I need to loose for a long time, though.

If someone were to say I'm don't need to loose any more weight, or getting tooo skinny, or something like that, I would definately ask them how much they thought I weighed.... and laugh my head off at them. and, if we were near a scale, I'd happily prove them wrong!
I'd also tell them, yes, I've lost a lot of weight, but guess what, when I sit down, It still feels like there's a basketball in my stomach! (that's were most of the excess weight I have left is carried).
Oh, and I'd tell them that my goal weight is based on what BMI calculators (including the one here) say should be my highest weight & still be in a healthy weight range. I'm not loosing weight for vanity's sake, I'm doing it to have the healthiest body possible!

Oooooh yeah. I finally got tired of the "but you look FINE!" comments, and cracked and asked a short friend how much she actually thinks I weigh.

"Oh, no more than 130 140 ish"

At this point I tried not to run to a corner and start laughing. That's about 30-40 lbs under guessed!

I'm 170lbs of extremely toned legs, not flabby arms, and about an inch to pinch around the middle. Maybe a tad heavier(10 lbs max) than my own ideal, but no way 130-140.

When people tell me that tall people can gain without it showing as much, I remind them that it also takes a lot more loss before people notice. If someone 5' tall loses 10 pounds, it is much more noticable than if someone 5'11" loses 10 pounds.

I actually just found this group by doing a search for "tall" because i know better than discus weight with people who are trying to get from 140 down to 120. I'd rather share my weight goals with people who can relate.

People still think I'm losing weight, but I'm not. I only lost 10lbs more from my original goal and I have been maintaining for months now. I have been getting leaner though so that throws them off. My mom doesn't get it either. Burning fat and losing weight are two different things, but they still understand it like I'm losing weight because I'm shrinking. Comments get old and when I get upset then I'm a crabtree. I can't win. LOL!

Ahhh learning this lesson is why I encourage tall ladies to not get hooked up on the #s on the scale. Because while 170 might seem 'heavy' to one person - when it's on a 6' foot lady isn't something altogether different.

When I first lost a chunk of weight I had the whole "what you are not DONE - you are going to lose MORE" conversation with a few friends. It came down to me asking them what they thought I weighed then. I don't recall exactly what they said but they were underestimating my weight by over 30 pounds. I'm not sure what they'd say now.

So I think it's a lesson for everyone - height or body shape impacts how you carry your weight. Those that don't face a 'challenge' or two just never see that ;)

All the time. I tell people I still have about 25lbs to loose, and they start to talk about becoming a walking skeleton. Then I tell them no way. I am still over 200lbs. How hard is it for people to get taller means bigger bones means more weight overall. My ideal weight is right up there with many men. Heck, I am taller than many men. What do they think? I just float around like a feather?

I guess they are used to seeing us big and tall ??? I don't know what it is, but more people comment on the weight of tall people than they do on shorter people. There are more short people in the World you know. Us tallies are in the minority. Hey, I'd rather be tall than short that's for sure. Totally off topic, but I felt like saying that again. LOL!

Oh yes, I have had people tell me that also...oh if you try to go down to 170, you will be to skinny! Usually the person has no clue!!

The comments don't "bother" me more than I feel like how do these people think it's their place to say that? RUDE! :)

Ha! Yeah I wear my weight well. People don't believe me when I say I weigh between 165 and 170lbs on any given day. But then again, I'm tall so it is to be expected. I don't expect shorties to understand. LOL! Annoying? Sometimes. But I like to play the guessing games too. Now that I'm skinny they assume I weigh 135lbs, but nope, I weigh a whole lot more.

I've always weighed more than my short friends. Even back in the day when I was so skinny I looked sickly, I still outweighed my shorter friends by 20 or 30 lbs. Guess people's comments about it don't bother me because it's the way it's always been for me.

The weight related comment that has started to bug me is when I mention how much more I need to loose to reach my healthy goal weight and people tell me I'll be too skinny. What do you say to that, specially when the one commenting is way over weight? I find that conversation Very uncomfortable.

How many of us have ever had this happen being tall...you tell someone (who is usually short/shorter) how much you weigh...oh I weigh 186 and their response is YOU HIDE IT WELL?! WTF?

Or "no one would guess you weigh that much!" WHY do people think that is okay? I know our weights seem high to others. Where my goal is 170, that would be obese on a 5'2" person, still!!! WHY SAY THAT?

Any others have this experience & some good stories to share??
