yup! hell i was 5'8" and 140 lbs and thought i was a WHALE. i couldn't seem to wrap the head around the fact that while yes, my friends all weighed about 40 lbs less than i did, there also wasn't a one of them over 5'2". i was so caught up on the numbers back then. it's sad, because i should have had all the self-esteem and confidence in the world, but i had none of that.

what we all wouldn't give for our old bodies now, eh? oh the clothes i would rock. haha i'd probably dress like a total ho trying to show it off!

I totally agree - when I was going to college I had a pair of Jeans that I absolutely loved - the summer I turned 19 I had to have surgery and after that I gained about a billion pounds. I always thought I looked like a blimp at that size, but looking back I was skinny compared to what I am now. I'd sell my soul to fit in those jeans again... and that was only 4 years ago sad.gif

Ladies - what is your guilty pleasure food? Mine is Pop or Soda as you Americans call it.. I love the FIZZ!

weakness is desserts .. which is why I stay away from them 90% of the time.. but i can't resist when we're at a restaurant (couple times a month).

 

Down to 221.0 ladies.. was about 228.5 around this time last year. It's not much but hell, at least the numbers aren't going in the other direction!

We leave in 2.5 weeks for Mexico.. would LOVE to be down 2-3 pounds more.

I'm "supposed" to be 130 pounds, I'm 5'3", and I get told by my doctor all the time that I'm too heavy and need to lose weight and that my BMI is too high. I guess because I'm so short, it seems that I'm too heavy because I'm 160 pounds, but I'm a size 10/12 street clothes, so I'm like WTF? censored.gif.... I really hate that I get told I need to lose weight just because I'm muscular, I work out everyday, lift weights and eat healthy!

I'm getting to a point in my life where I realize that even when I was smaller ( in highschool), I still thought I was "fat" because our media and society has portrayed women so poorly for so long, and it has created so many body image issues out there. It's to the point, that even when we are thin, we don't see ourselves as thin, we just compare ourselves to the next thinnest girl, and how we are not thinner than her....

I believe that as long as you are happy and healthy that is all that matters!! We should praise all sizes, shapes, etc! smile03.gif
Ugh it sucks so bad to be short! I think 130 at 5'3 is pushing it really, esp if you are muscular. I am extremely muscular. I am 5'2 and my goal weight is 135! I feel like I will look good and feel healthy at that size! My clothes size won't even change really though. I have 11lbs left to lose, so you do the math and I am a 6/8 in street clothes right now. I will be the same size at 135...so annoying! I know I have less to lose than some of you ladies, but I have super skinny friends and I have always felt like the chubby girl esp. after I got up to 165 in college! FML! smile78.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
