I am pretty tall...5'11"....just wondered what weight you started at and what weight you hope to/or are at now? I would love to get to 190 (the lowest weight I remember a freshman in college). It almost seems unbelievable that I could get smaller than that but also pretty exciting to think that it could happen! :)

I'm 5 11 too. Highest weight was 281. Surgery on 11 04 2012 and I am currently 208. My goal is 170. I am currently wearing size 14 jeans from old navy or jones of ny. Size large or xl shirts. I want to be a size 10. So 165 to 175 in a normal BMI range and should equal to a size 10/12.

Thanks so much for your reply! I was daydreaming yesterday looking at the Old Navy website and looking forward to the day that I can go in and by clothes off the rack instead of having to buy online with them! I can wear their XXL shirts but way!

I'm the short one here at 5'10'' I'll be having surgery in April and currently 240. My "goal" weight is 160 can you imagine! I've never been 160. I was 175 in high school and looked pretty good :)

These are exciting times!

I'm 5 10 and I started out at 285. I am currently down to about 193, and wearing a size 14 comfortably / or snug size 12, size L or XL tops/sweater.  I was hoping to get down to 150, but that may not be realistic.  My weight has been really stalled for several months, and my body doesn't really want to seem to lose any more even though I'm still getting all my protein, eating around 1000 calories/day, etc....  I'm kind of frustrated, because I'll only be a year out next week.  I was hoping to lose more and for a longer time period.  Best of luck!

I am also a short one here at 5'9" and my highest weight was 286.  My current weight now is 163 and I wanted to get to 150 however I am looking good now. I currently still wear a large shirt most days.  Sometimes med. due to my broad shoulders.

My jeans are between an 8 and a 10 depending on brand and such.  My mom is 5'11 1/2 and she is 160 and said she wears a 12 however, I think she may be a 10 and just doesn't realize it.   In H.S and my early 20's I was between 155-165 pounds so I think I am doing pretty good being only 7 months out.

My husband thinks it looks like I weigh 135-140 and can't believe it when I tell him I am 163. It is much easier to find tall jean in misses sizes than it was for me in plus size also.

I'm 5'11 also and my starting weight was about 350. I hope to get down to around 190 also I think if I was smaller I would look too small. I would like to wear a size smaller than 14 though.
