    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

            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 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!
                      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!
                      Loving married life! <3
