Tall and looking to lose weight on a team?

If there is enough interest I would like to start a team specifically for taller people.. about 5'8" and up and looking to lose 20+ pounds. I know its hard to talk to people who are your weight and about 5 inches shorter! So all the tall people out there let me know if you want to be on a team!

Because the balance of weight is different. When I say I felt wonderful at 145 pounds, which was like a size 8 for me, that doesn't paint a very real portrait in someone's mind of what I look like. It's the same as if someone 5'2" said they were happy at 90 pounds. It's a different dynamic, different body styles.

Someone wanting to weigh 150 pounds of muscle is different than someone who is 150 pounds of fat.

Height makes a difference and taller people can usually carry more weight without showing it. Just nice to have people to talk to who are exactly in your boat.
