Just weighed myself. I've lost 3 kilos this week! Not sure how it happened so fast. My BMI is 18.5 again. Perfect and my skinny jeans fit. Looks like the more healthy stuff I eat the more weight I lose. I've been increasing my food intake slowly and trying to make healthier choices as I go. I've only had one energy drink this week. Normally I would have had about 10 by now lol! Learning to behave myself again!

Today's total: 1140, I will have a half cup of hot chocolate made with dark chocolate equaling about 60 calories...using half milk and half water. approximately 1200 Kcal.

I have had 6-20 ounce bottles of water...I used the same bottle all day, just refilling with filtered water. Tomorrow is weigh in for our Biggest Loser contest at work.
Water is my biggest bugaboo. I simply don't like it. Yet when I fill up a bottle either straight from the tap or from the fridge, I keep it beside my cup of coffee and will reach for the water before the coffee cup. I do feel better when I drink water. And I can notice the change in my skin almost immediately. I simply HAVE TO MAKE myself drink water before coffee.

For my height, I should weigh 95 pounds. Instead my weight came in today at 136 lbs. I wouldn't object if I was able to get my weight down to where it should be. But then everytime I lose weight, I have to hear it from Winthrop. "Are you eating? Are you sure?" I feel caught between a rock and a hard place.

You're supposed to weigh 95 lbs? You must be tiny. I was 103 lbs at my lowest. Very under weight. I went up to 134 lbs since moving back to SA and I'm now at 127 with my BMI at 18.5.
Same size I was from Grade 7 up until after I had my son. I lost weight after my heart attack.
I'm 5.9, I'm pretty tall.

Have you tried adding things to your water like slices of lemon, sprigs of mint, cucumber slices, lemon thyme etc ?
I do this often. Just fill a jug with cold water and whatever fruit and herbs you like and stash it in the fridge to drink whenever you're thirsty. Much easier to drink water this way.

I am 4'8" tall. A legal midget. I was told after my first child not to have anymore children. So I got pregnant five more times. Lost one. I never was a good listener.

You're shorter than my 10yr old. She's 5.08 and wears a US size 7 shoe. She's going to tower above me I'm sure! We're a family of giants
South Africans are big people though. I'm the shortest in my family!

I am shorter than everyone I know. My youngest is 6'1". Spike is my shortest one 5"6". My daughter is 5'8", and The Pirate is 5'10". I just tell folks I haven't finished growing yet. I need to stand out in a good rain storm.

I'm 5'0 and my bf's 9 yr old niece is taller than me lol. I have a couple pairs of her hand me down shoes (she has some feet problems so they have to buy her really nice supportive shoes. Most comfortable ones I own!). I would like to weigh around 105-110, but I stick around 115-120. This time I'm really going to get down to 105 and try to stay there. I've been right around 1200-1300 calories every day for the last 4 days. After the holidays I was up to 122, and now I'm down to 119. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't post in the weight loss threads, because sometimes when I talk about counting calories, people who need to lose large amounts of weight get offended because I don't need to lose any weight to be considered healthy. The reason I pay so much attention to it, is because I love food, and I gain weight if I just eat whatever I want. I am very impressed with the people who are able to lose 20, 30, 50lb and more, and I never want to have to be in that situation. So it's a constant part of my life, maintaining my weight, and counting calories. So anyway, I don't want to make anyone feel bad, just because I am in my healthy weight range. I'm more comfortable with myself when I'm at the lower end (I could go all the way down to 95 and still be considered healthy, although I would be too skinny for my own taste at that weight).

I got teased so much for being tall in school. It's fine now that I'm grown up. I was really skinny too. Kids used to say thing like....
If you wear a red tie, you'll look like a thermometer or if you stand sideways you could hide behind a sheet of paper or when I walked with my best friend (she's over weight) they used to say we look like the no 10 or call me Giraffe or twiggy or Olive Oyl (Popeye)
High School was worse. I developed really large breast but stayed stick thin. They always said when my breasts come around a corner I only follow 5 mins later (that was kinda funny)
I wished I was short growing up!
