    I know this sounds stupid but I always thought I was 5ft 7 as I had been told that by a nurse at the hospital a few years ago and always assumed she was right, well my friend who is 2 inches taller than me said that she was 5ft 7 on the weekend so it made me wonder if I was wrong or was she wrong.... anyway I came into work yesterday and got one of the guys to measure me and it turns out that I am only 5ft 5..... I am gutted now as that means my bmi has gone up and my goal weight is less than I thought and also means I have further to go until I can go back to the hospital to hopefully be put on the IVF list :( just felt I had to share this sorry......

    Just because a number (BMI) has changed, hasn't changed what you had set as your goal. Don't be governed by meaningless stats, go by how you look and feel.

    Good luck x

    Oh sorry to hear you are so down about that. It doesn't change the fact that you have lost 46lbs though.

    Well done

    Thanks for all the support, I know I just have to get on with it and that I have still lost a lot of weight no matter what my height is, I think the reason I am disappointed is that it seems I will have to wait a bit longer to get on the IVF register but hey at least I am on my way to getting there, thanks again all xx
