question for short girls

I'm around 5'2 and 135 pounds. I'd like to reach 115. The trouble is that I give up so easily if I don't see instant results. I guess since I don't have a whole lot of weight to lose, it comes off slowly. I'm sure that many of you girls are short like me and perhaps just need to lose 20 pounds or so. I was wondering if you could tell me your experiences with losing weight and how long did it take for you to see results. And how many calories do you eat? I'm always so paranoid that I won't ever be able to lose this weight and I'll stay chunky forever.
Thanks!!!

I'm also 5"2" and when I'm around 135 I'm rounder than I'd like to be, so I know where you're at. (I'm currently pregnant, so not on the weight-loss track.)
Here are a couple suggestiong that help me stay on track:
1. Concentrate on how you look and how your clothes fit, not on what the scale says.
2. Give yourself little goals (5 lbs. a month is reasonable for me) and then give yourself enough time to reach those goals. 4-5 months is enough time to lose 15-20 pounds.
3. Find or create a really good group here on PT and KEEP LOGGING! As soon as my logging slips, my priorities slip and I'm back up a few pounds.

Good luck!!!

I'm only 5'1 and I totally know where you're coming from. Its difficult because in this day and age I feel like my appetite is trained to be just a big as everyone elses but the truth is that the smaller you are the less calories you usually need....But then theres the fear of eating too little and slowing your metabolism down! I try to range between 1200 and 1500, but I feel like its the type of food I eat that really matters(which has nothing to do with height but just with personal body type hehe). For me I know its hard to keep myself in check because people are always saying how small I am, so I never feel like I'm some huge person, even if I want my body to be different. It may be harder to notice extra weight, or to notice change when it comes off, but theres no difference between us and anyone else! Keep at it and you will get results!

Hmm, I'm 5'2 and 3/4, don't forget the 3/4 LOL! I am actually 137 and think I'm at an ideal weight for me. I'm 38, very muscular, currently wearing a size 5/6. When I was in high school I always hovered around 130-135 and I wore a size 3 and I remember some saying I looked to thin. Since the body slows down and I've had some kids the weight lays differently now but I think I look good and healthy. My point is that even though so many can be the same height we are all built differently and our shapes will be different as well. At my current weight I believe my BMI is 16.4 somewhere around there. I have a lot of muscle mass.

Do you have AIM?

I am 5 2" and I know exactlly what you're going through. I am very muscular, and it's tough to go by what the scale says. Check out my profile and log, they are both public, and if you want to chat, let me know on this post and I'll find a way to reach you! :)

I'm 5'3" and once weighed 135 pounds. I picked up Business Plan for the Body a few summers ago and it totally lit a fire under me. It eliminated any and every excuse I had used to not lose weight. I decided to keep a food journal and shoot for 1200 calories, I focused on strength training (45 minutes with 15 minute cardio as a warm up), and I lost all my weight by the beginning of fall. It took about 3 months. I was in the best shape of my life. I'm back now to lose pregnancy weight. You can do it.
