EDIT: I’m 5’5
I know it can be hard to guess, but I just want to know what you all think 🙂 I keep getting people say that I weigh more than I look. But I don’t see it, I’ve always seen myself as chubby or fat…thanks to being told that I was too big all throughout my teen years. I now look back at my pre-husband weight and think, damn! I had my ideal body back then, and at the time thought I was too chunky!!
I am 4 months post partum, and am 6kg (13lbs) down since 1st of January! Yay! I’ve still got a way to go, but I am generally interested to see what you all think 🙂 I’ve been taking my measurements plus photos as I prefer that way as a weight loss guide rather than weight itself as it can vary quite a bit. But I also see myself differently to others (as most people do I’m sure). I keep getting compliments on my weight loss and told I look fine now, but I’m not happy yet!
Below is a photo taken three days ago.

@MrsSmokey: How tall are you?

@MrsSkeletonKey: 5’5 – just put it in my op, thanks 🙂 it was there to start with, no idea what happened.

@MrsSmokey: Honestly, it’s really hard to tell if we can’t see a picture from the front. But, based on what I *can* see, I would say maybe 160lbs, which I don’t think it very much. I base my answer off the fact that I weigh 150lbs at 5’4”. (I’m about to start a meal plan that I hope will eventually get me down to 125lbs-ish).
I think you look really good, and congrats on losing 13lbs 🙂

@MrsSmokey: I’m not trying to just say what you want to hear, but honestly I was surprised that there wasn’t an option lower than 140. I guessed somewhere between 130-145, so the option I picked was 140-159. Maybe you just have more muscle than most? Or maybe I’m just a terrible guesser lol. Either way, I think you look good.

@MrsSmokey: I guessed 160-179lbs because I’m 5’4” and am 173 and we have a similar build.

I’d guess a little under 160, but I agree with PP, it’s a little hard to tell from this sideways picture.

I would guess 160-170 🙂 I can see possibly 180 if you have a lot of muscle in there!!

@MrsSmokey: I’m guessing 160-165 lbs, only because we’re almost the same height and my body type is similar.
Congrats on the weight loss!

I feel like I have a similar build an am 5’10” and 170, so I guessed 140. That obviously must be low since your poll only starts at 140.
Weight is really just a number. If you are worried about how you look, focus on how your jeans fit. They don’t lie.

I would say I am slightly slimmer, but with a similar build, and I’m close to 150 now, at 5’0. So I would say that if you are 5’5, but maybe one dress size larger than I am, you would have to be quite a bit heavier. On the other hand, I have always been heavy for my height, and I know I pack a lot of muscle… so I guessed 160-179.

I’d guess around 170lb. I think you’re about the same size I was this time last year and the same height and I was 77kg when I started.

I was going to say around 140.
Post # 15
I guessed 140lbs based on how I look at 5’5″. I’ve always been tempted to ask others what they think I weigh because I’m pretty sure I look like I weigh more than I actually do.

@MrsSmokey: I’d guess 160 because you are about the same height as me, and my body looked like your photo when I weighed that much.
