Tall Women, Tell Me Your Story!



Recommended Posts

I am 5'10" and got beyond my goal to 150lbs and was still losing. Gained back to 165lbs and I have been maintaining for 1.5 years. Let me tell that the idea of getting to 150 was mind blowing, so was gaining back and maintenance. People told me I was too skinny but I believe it is because their reference was the fat me. Good luck!

sleeping better, better mood, Waist size was a 44-46 now at a 34.

Tredfern do you mind me asking what size you wear at 165lbs? I'm curious what size you started at and are wearing now for pant, top and shoe. I started at a tight 22 and size 11W shoes. My shoes are all too big now and I would love to be a regular size 10M in shoes again. Right now I'm wearing a size 16 pant a little bigger in tops.

Hello tall sleevers :)

I have been up and down with my weight the last two weeks since Thanksgiving. Went up after the holiday, then had a big loss because I got the stomach flu. Then my birthday hit and I rebounded back up. Realistically, I know I didn't "gain" that much weight in a week - it's Water, etc. and my body getting back to normal, but it was a blow to the ego. I was SOOOO CLOSE to being under 200lbs....and then I wasn't. I'm back to "normal" eating, Protein first, veggies second...and getting in my Water. I WILL GET UNDER 200lbs soon! My goal is by 12/31. I've got 3 weeks...I am going to do it..

The sleeve is a wonderful tool and I need to use it. I still have the same goal of 165lbs...which is about 41lbs to go. I may not get to 165, but if I got under 180 I think I would be happy with that. We will see how my body feels at that weight.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the holiday season. Whatever you Celebrate - hope it's filled with health & joy.
