@CrazyCatLady13:  I think that if YOU think you could lose some weight, go for it! From what you posted, it sounds like you’re at a perfect BMI (which doesn’t mean much, I hate that stupid scale). Just remember that there’s losing weight, and then there’s toning up.

Ultimately, all that matters is that you are comfortable in your own skin. 🙂

I definitely think that if you’re not eating at least 1200 calories a day, you’re not going to see the weight come off–starvation mode!

For what it’s worth, my measurements are really similar (though I’m 5’5″, so I weigh more), and I am only planning on working on toning before the wedding, not losing weight. I definitely feel a bit lumpy/flabby some days, but I’ve got big boobs and a big booty, and as long as I feel strong and eat decently, I am proud of my body!

I agree with others that you need to eat more, eating so few calories a day does not encourage your body to lose weight.  Try to eat a healthy balanced diet and add in some weight training and you will get toned up and look great!

Why are you wanting to lose weight? For aesthetics – for health? The stats you indicate would suggest a healthy person. That said, it’s possible to be a ‘healthy’ weight and to be a very unhealthy person.

If your weight’s been relatively stable in the past, honestly, I just suggest a half hour of exercise most days of the week. Something that combines strength training as well – like those JM workouts – would be ideal.

You may gradually lose fat and build muscle that way, but from a health standpoint, I see no reason that you would *need* to lose weight.
