Whos 5 feet or shorter

  • Ok so long time ago I read in a magazine that when your shorter than 5 feet that its harder to lose weight even if u just gain it. So I was wondering how many ladies in here are short and have you lost the pregnancy weight? If you did how? Im 4'9 and having trouble and it sucks!!!
    Also wanted to know how many pregnancies have you had? I have two but one baby. With my first prepregnancy I was 140 and went all the way to 206 had baby and went down to 175 and couldnt lost anymore stayed there. Then got pregnant with my secons and went to 220 yikes. Now im down to 200 and thats it. Sorry for this being long just needed to let it out.

    I have 5 kids. I am 4' 11.75" I lost the weight with my first, third and fourth. The second I didn't lose the weight until after my third. My fifth I am still struggling, but it is hard with health problems. How old are you? I think as you get older, your metabolism slows making it harder, plus your body changes after having kids. Women are so hard on themselves, with doesn't make things any easier.

  • I meant to put 4'11 lol..

    @luvmy5 im 21. And when I was 14-17 I was very active. Now I cant do much im to lazy and I dont get why. Hopefully i start doing something bevause I sure dont want the extra weight :/ btw how much do you weight now?

    I'm quite a bit older. Soon to be 29. I am around 150, normally 115.

  • Im 4'8" and never hit 100 till the Army at 18... was a max of 110 in Army. Was 100 pre with daughter delivered at 135 then gained to 145. Was 140 pre with son, delievered at 135 and now 140 again.. BUT I am a procrastinator and really have not tried to lose anything yet... And Im 29 tomorrow...

  • I'm 5'1" and am having a hard time losing weight. I was 155 pre baby, which I was not happy with. I got up to 177 while prego and am down to 156 now. I've been dieting for like 3 months now and exercising for 2 and I just feel like its taking FOREVER! My goal is 130, my perfect weight would be 120. It's sooo hard to lose weight. And when you're short, an extra 10-20lbs (or more) looks like 50!!

  • Oh and I'm 26

    I am 4'11" and 28, I'm 182 and I have lost some of the baby weight from my second I was 210 but I started at 160. I'll work for 2-3 months to loose 10lbs eating healthy and exercising for an hour and walking 1+ mile/s every day only to gain it back in one week of not walking due to rain.

    With my first it came off almost immediately, but I started at 96, only went up to 135 and ended at 100 and I was happy with that weight.
    I'm beginning to think the only way I can loose weight is by only eating lettuce and raisins and only drinking water.

  • I'm right at 5', and was about 112 pounds before I turned 21. I gained 10 pounds before I got pregnant, buy it was mainly boobs and thighs so it was proportionate and it looked good! I gained 70 something pounds with my son, back in 2006. I was up to 193 the day before I had him, and got down to 165 before I got pregnant with my daughter. I had my daughter last year, and only gained 40 pounds this time around. I lost all the weight, but have put on about half the weight in the last few months.

    A couple of years ago, I was a gymaholic. 5 days a week, 2 hours a day. 1500 calories daily, and no results whatsoever. Same with now, I've cut back on calories, laid off of fatty and fast foods, cut out soda and most sugars, and nothing. I'm still gaining!!

    I'm at loss. I want so badly to lose 50 pounds, but I want to do it the healthy way. I swear my body just likes all the fat and doesn't want to get rid of it. I've never felt so uncomfortable and gross in my life!! :(
