      say what?!?! 130 is ridic for someone who is 5'10". get a new doctor!!!

      i am 5'8" and my ultimate ultimate goal is about 165. i know that for me, that is a healthy weight and i look really great at that size. it has been a very long time since i've been there tho, haha. my first major goal is just to get under 200 lbs again (for the first time in about a decade).

      you made me LOL about the 10 lbs!

        My ultimate goal weight is around 175, which seems like a lot to some women, but when you're built like a brick shithouse (as my mom would say) then it's normal. Besides, last time I was under 200 lbs, I think I was 12 lol

          God I’m slacking. Just got on here and caught up on the conversation. For those of you who were asking about GBP surgery, it is a good option for those of you looking to drop the weight and keep it off, but it isn’t for everyone. My mom went through her surgery 5 years ago and looks AMAZING!
          If you’re worried about the risks, you really need to weigh the pros and cons. There is a chance that you can get a pulmonary embolism after the surgery, as well as a small risk for internal bleeding. Also, the surgery isn’t a quick fix; you still have to work at it. It is such an amazing tool to help you reach your weightloss goals though.
          As for the whole wrinkled dog thing, there probably will be some extra skin after you lose the weight, but the good news is that most insurance companies will cover the cost for you to have the extra skin removed, because at that point they look at it as a medical necessity instead of a cosmetic thing, as the extra skin can cause rashes and discomfort, etc.
          Anyways, that’s just my two cents. If you’re seriously considering the surgery I would HIGHLY encourage you to check out a GBP seminar that they offer at almost all major hospitals. They’re full of useful information to help you make a better informed decision. I hope that this helped at least a little!
          There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of ones self.

            thanks so much for the information and great advice! Glad to hear that your mom is doing fantastic with this. Just out of curiosity, did she have to have some skin removed as well?

            Oh how I loathe the weight issue. I mean seriously? Why cant' I be the skinny one? I was just telling my DH that yesterday. UGH!!!! But this is who I am and I have to deal with it. I too have over 100 lbs to lose. It just seems like a daily struggle and it drives me crazy sometimes! I food, it's not fair!! lol Why can't I be the one that eats like a horse and only gain 2 lbs? I went on my wedding/vacay for 2 weeks and gained 10 lbs. Been back 3 weeks now and haven't lost a thing. DH, well I won't even talk about this cause he's an a$$ and loses crazy-fast! Anyway, I just wish the weight would all come off ASAP!!!!!!!! lol

                and you're welcome. Us gals need a place to bitch about our skinny friends! lol jk there's tons of support here as you can see!

                I'm not sure about dresses as I had mine made and I didn't have any bridesmaids. Someone else will be able to help you for sure though!

                  I agree 130 is ridiculous for someone 5'10"! You'd look freaking anorexic!! JEEZ! 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? .... 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!

                      I was the same way in HS!!! I was a size 8-10 and I used to think I was huge!!! what I wouldn't give to be that size again!!!!

                      but i'm not really caught up on the weight though I would like to be 160-180...I would just like to be a 8-10 again.
