Hi cottoncandygal! New to the site as well...Your post caught my attention because like you I need to loose about 35lbs and I am only 5ft 1in. I have always been small as well...util my 40th birthday that is. It seems harder to loose weight for us shorties, especially the mid-section. My doc just prescribed phentermine, hope it helps. My main weakness is carbs...love pasta! I descovered these tofu noodles at the healthfood store, they have been a life saver...prepared right they taste pretty good. Keep us all posted on your progress.
