Any other 5'2" and under dieters out there?
I'm 5'2" as well with long legs and a very short waist so definitely even 3 extra pounds on my waist looks like im at least 15lbs over. I'm also pretty horrid at keeping to diets, but ive never been a but junk food or sweets person so i guess i do ok in that department.
I'm 5'1 and I actually lost a significant amount of weight in a short amount of time (30 lbs in about a month and a half, not on purpose) a couple of years ago and people thought it looked like I was wasting away. I'm actually down to a weight that I consider healthy AND attractive for my stature so now my goal is to get in shape and just trim up but I'm totally down for supporting others!
Definitely down with the support. I'm 5'2" and never had a weight problem until a few years ago. So I am completely out of my element. I have been look over the ignite program and I am ready to make the leap. Have any of my fellow shorties tried or currently on the ignite program? Good results?
Happy New Year! I'm new to Daily Burn (just started a week ago). I am a REAL "shortie", standing at 4'11 and a half'' on a GOOD day. Lol. I am currently 134 lbs. (approximately 80% muscle). I would love to be at 119-123 lbs. by April 1. Even though I'm not particularly heavy, I look heavier because 1) I'm short, 2) because I have a medium-large frame with thicker thighs, a round bottom and 34D bust. I hate to get so personal with details, but I'm just wondering if any of you have similar proportions. I think I am split fairly evenly in terms of torso vs. leg ratio. My thighs are about 20 inches around (I feel like that's HUGE, even if there is a good deal of muscle). My waist is a 29. My hips are 34 inches. I have not invested the extra money into Ignite, so I am just eating as clean a possible and reading posts from others using Ignite to get some fresh ideas about meals, snacks, etc. I'm not a "Junk food" type, but I love a good pizza crust!! :-)
I'm 4' 11" and yes I agree a few pounds can end up looking like a lot!
I weigh about 127 now after starting daily burn and I feel like my progress is a bit slow. I would like to get down to about 107 but I care more about the muscle mass and athletic ability and how my body looks (posture, stature, body fat percentage).
I have a shortish torso with longer legs and arms.
My issue with myself currently is that the conundrum of how it looks along with the health issues. I'm not "fat" but I'm in the overweight range of BMI and body fat percentage. It's nothing horrendous but it does pull my spine out of whack and leads to a lot of back pain. I do a good job of shopping for clothes that fit and are flattering, but I have to admit, due to the shortness of my torso and my current body fat %age, my middle looks really really thick. I feel like it makes me look like a jellybean with arms and legs and I really want to do something about it.
If you're still wanting support members count me in!
I know how this feels. My torso is so short, and my body is small, so I really feel like I have to eat so much less than everyone else, even to maintain my weight, and now that I'm trying to lose ~30 lbs, it's getting really difficult to get rid of the extra pounds just because it's very slow cutting down only the proper amount of calories (if you go too low, you get into starvation mode), but not seeing results quickly is discouraging, too =(
