I am 5’2 and 120 (most of it in my boobs). If I can get down to 112 and still maintain my curves, I’ll be happy.

I am 5’1″ and currently 135 lbs. I would like to get down to 125 lbs for my wedding, I am curvy and muscular, so even though I’m short, I know I wont look healthy under 125 lbs

i’m 5’3″, 142 – I’ve been stress eating, happy with being under 140, and ideally 135.

I’m not engaged yet, but I wanted to get a jump start on losing weight since I assume he’s going to propose sometime in the next few months. 

So far I’ve lost 22.6lb, I have another 45 to go to reach my goal!

@misschickpea:  don’t you hate that? I’m 5’8″ and the same. I’ve lost 12 so far, but seem to be stuck at 148 Lbs. My goal is 140-145, so it’s not that much more but it’s driving me nuts that it refuses to come off.

@NLbride:  Yes!! I have a friend who is 5’2 and was complaining about losing 12 lbs which would bring her down from a size 8 to a 4! I was like, it takes me 16lbs to lose a damn size! Though I guess we can’t complain, us tall gals seem to carry extra weight pretty well most of the time! Still chuggin along, we can do it!

@misschickpea:  I hear you. My mom is 5’3″ and said to me on the phone that 5 lbs is one dress size. Lol I have lost 12 lbs and am still wearing the same jeans.

It works the other way when we gain weight. a 5 lb gain is visible on me.

I’m 5’10” (I think, I usually think in centimeters, anyways I’m pretty tall for a girl) and weigh 178 lbs, I’m trying to lose 25 lbs. just started on a low carb diet Tuesday. I’m giving myself three months to do it and tegen I want to go dress shopping. No carbs is hard! I love bread, pasta And basically all other carbs.

hopefully this will bring me down two sizes! i have a picture of my favorite dress hanging on the for motivation.

I’m 5′ 6″ and 129 lbs. I already lost 8 lbs but its getting harder to loose any more.  I would like to be 120 lbs but would be happy with a loss of fat and gain of difinition.

@misschickpea:  What is your friend doing?? If I lose 12 lbs, I barely lose one pant size. Oh, and I’m 5’2 1/2″ (I will take every centimeter I can lol) I had to lose 40lbs to go from a tight 14 to an 8 =/

I’m 5’2 and want to get to around 130 for the wedding.  I am muscular and pretty curvy so I tend to look anorexic if I get any lower than that.  So far I have lost 13 pounds, but I still have 25-30 more to go.  Luckily I have over a year.  I think the hardest part for me is that I’m sure I will lose the weight well before the wedding, but the hard part will be keeping it off until then 🙂
