Thanks Kat! How tall are you? I'm only 5'3" so not much room for too much extra weight

I'm 5'8". My goal is somewhere between 145 and 155, but I will have to see once I get there (again, sigh). I was at 159 in the late spring of '08 but have managed to pack a TON back on. Yes, I suck.

I weighed in at 205 this morning (how's that for confession?). That is a loose size 16, for me.


I just finished 3 miles, and 100 crunches on the ball. Today was the first day of walk 2, run 1 intervals and it rather sucked.

Kat, what size were you at 159? With your height, that sounds like a great size. I'm only 5'5.5".

Kat - First of all congrats on the walk 2 run 1 workout. Trust me, it gets easier... it just doesn't feel like it right now. You WILL surprise yourself!
Secondly I'm like 5'8.5 and at 159 I looked thin at 140 I looked scary skinny (wouldn't that be nice). I'm currently at 172... I'll be doing flips when I get to 155.
Sounds like your doing great! Keep up the good work!

redlight, I was a size 10 at 159. I am shooting for fit 150ish just to have the cushion, if that makes sense? I would like to be a solid size 10, and maybe an 8 in some things. Any less than that, and I think it would be both too thin, and totally unmaintainable.

Nat, thanks!! I am so focused right now on training for the Princess half, which is a month from Sunday . That is really helping to keep me motivated. I just so don't want to be swept!

Interesting, I was a tight 8/ loose 10 at 159, and I'm shorter.

Are you small boned? I am probably medium-boned at best. My feet and hands are large, as I can barely fit in a women's XL glove, and my feet are size 10. Legs are long, 33-34" inseam, and torso is short enough that I can wear petite tops. And I put all my weight on, on top... think pumpkin on stilts.

It's always interesting to me how some women can get to 4s and 6s and look great, but the lowest I have ever been past age 20 is 140-145 and a solid 8 and at the time, was on the verge of too thin (rib counting and people offering me cookies and such).

Since we're talking about weights and sizes...I always thought I weighed more than I looked, if that makes sense. So if I weighed 150 I might really look 140. Anyway, I've run quite the gammit of sizes over the years. Currently I am (ugh, can't believe I am posting this) 210 and I wear an XL or a 16/18 in bottoms, depending on the cuts. At my absolute thinnest, I was 130 and I have been told that I actually was almost too thin-looking at that weight and I am only 5'3". I'd have been obese if I were a hollywood celebrity haha. Anyway, at that weight I wore a 6 or 8, smalls and mediums. I've always tended to have a flatter stomach. I'm quite huge now, but even just 25 or so lbs ago, my stomach is relatively flat for someone who is overweight, which I don't mind obviously.

I thought I was more medium to medium large boned. I think I look thinner than most of my friends who are about the same height and weight. My stomach is now getting flat, though it was quite chubby when I was 20 lbs heavier.

Hi all!

Ok I'll jump in with my height and weight as well! I am 5'2" I started in September at 167 (my scale at home) 165 (WW scale) I am no means fine boned but not larger boned either. So I guess that leaves me medium boned Since joining WW I have lost 14lbs according to their scale. According to my scale I have lost just over 16lbs (maybe I should stick to my scale ) I am now down to around 150, I was fitting into a snug 12 but now depending on the cut I am into some of my size 10 things. I really feel the weight loss through out my mid section. I hate my arms though! I wish they were more toned!


I went to WW last night and I stayed the same this week! I am just glad I didn't gain. Good meeting to it was all about staying motivated. Which I really need right now.


Any LOST fans here? What did you think of the last nights episode? I am such a huge fan. I told my kids last night that it was my night to watch TV and that I was NOT TO BE DISTURBED!

Have a great day everyone! Eat healthy!

My friends have always told me that too. I told them I weighed 130 and they said "Wow, you don't look like you weigh that much!" Obviously 130 is not a lot and it's good, but I think they were thinking I was around 120 or so. Sounds good to me!

I'm 5'3" and wear a size 4. I think I was 170 and size 16 (Maybe a 12 or 14 in womens) when I started trying to lose weight in 2008.

Just working on building some muscle and keeping my weight off.

Watched Biggest Loser last night so I'm pretty inspired today! Saw they made yoplait smoothies, I actually had one of those two days ago they are delicious!

OK - I'm back on board.
I'm +2.8 lbs. I'm back up to 175. I can't pretend not to know why. It may be because I've been eating more and not exercising.
Ever since we got back from Disney I have been job hunting. It's not going well. Combine that would my DH getting laid off a few weeks before we left and needing to pay bills - the stress has been crazy.
Any way - NO MORE EXCUSES! In the past two days I have spent over two hours on the treadmill so I'm getting back on track. I can't go back to were I was and let go of all this hard work.

Seems like most of you have been having great successes so keep up the great work and lets keep each other motivated!

-nat

I love love lost as well. I thought last nights episode was terrific. I feel like Jacob went into Sayid's body. I think it would be a great twist if the Man in Black or Flocke is really the good guy...we shall see!!!

I'll pop back in... I've been very PEEP-like lately. As of my unofficial weigh-in yesterday, I was down 15 lbs since Jan 3. Almost under 200 again!!

Princess half training is going okay. My shoes died this week and made my training wogs really suck. I got new ones yesterday, which will hopefully help with this week.


Shannon, how are you doing? I would love a flat stomach. My "good" area is legs. They usually stay relatively thin, and I don't get much in the way of hips. All apple, all the time over here.

Nat, coming back from Disney is SO hard. You can pull yourself back up!!

LMO (Lauren?) how are your workouts coming? You are such an inspiration to me.

redlight, snowwhite, (I have sigs turned off so forgive me if your names are there), hi!!
