- Wedding: November 2013
So I’ve been trying to get back to the weight I was before going back to school and I’ve plateaud about 5 pounds over that at 133 which is overweight by BMI standards. I’m trying to get to 127 but while doing some research today I found out the target weight for my height, 5′ 1″, is 119. I haven’t weighed that much since middle school. If I cut off my size D breasts I might be able to get there.
I feel like I’ve reached a point where I just can’t lose anymore weight. I go to the gym, I do the slimfast diet, I still fit into a size 6 dress size but at the same time I have a belly I hate and I don’t feel as great as I used to.
And now I just read a bunch of articles saying I should aim for 119-123 and last year when I was 127 I saw a doctor who told me I still needed to lose 10 pounds just by looking at me! I assumed I was just so pudgy she assumed I was overweight.
I hate being short and I struggle with pcos as well and I just have no idea what I can realistically aim for or how I can get there and its been taking a hit on my confidence. Wedding dress shopping has been a nightmare with me feeling wrong in everything I try on just for being a midget who hates heels.
