    Re: This is ridiculous!!

    Tinkerbelle makes a good point, in fact everyone makes a good point. I just wonder if the idea of the "ideal" woman being 0-4 range will ever change. It doesn't help if your mum even says she wishes i was smaller so clothes shopping would be cheaper. That hurts.

      Heavy women have been the standard in the past, and hopefully will be again.

        I'm 5'7" 152, and that is considered normal at HallsMD. And there's a link to a page outlining various "ideal" weights and their sources. A healthy BMI is between 19-25, according to this page.

          -Cali4, DisneyDan, and I are the same height. I weigh 160.

          Here's my issues and maybe it's because I am writing a book on this subject:
          -we are taught as kids to love ourselves. Then why as adults are we taught to hate our bodies? So we can love our minds not our skin, what keeps us going? And in our teenage years (and even our adult years) that's so confusing, especially to girls/women.

          -Tom Lykis told a girl my height 125 she was a fat @ss and needed to drop 20lbs... thought that was pretty sick.

          -I am not small. I mean I am 5'10", 160lbs (that I am proud of! Dude lost 25ish lbs...) with a size 11 wide foot (10.5-11 depending on the shoe), 9 ring, and I mean... dude my build is that of an Amazon. I have muscular calves and I only walk a mile a day. So to tell me that my body shape has to be compared to that of a tiny person? No! My hips are big. I know it. My doctor told me I have birthing hips at age 13.

          But to flip this whole thing around- I like my body. Yeah have issues. Dude my calves! My arms, that skin area over the elbow that can for some reason hold fat.... I can be a size 2 (ew) and still have fat there... But the older I've gotten, I am proud about my body. I look and see the parts of me I inherited from family members and it's...awesome? I am proud to have my dad's side's height and my mom's side's chest. I dig my Scottish hips and the giant feet. My nose? Grandpa's. Sure it's not "cute and perky" but I've been told it's regal and royal looking.

          People need to get over themselves. Don't take what your doctor says so seriously, don't look at models. Eat healthy, move around, and have fun. If you're eating well and working out you should be fine.

            If I weighed what I'm "supposed" to. I'd look like a twig, (I used to weigh 150 at a time) and would probably have to put rocks in my pocket so I wouldn't blow away when going outside. I'm perfectly happy with where I am right now.

              I'd love to be that plus sized. Puhleeze....it's really sad that the world we live in puts you in the fat category if you are 150 lbs!

                Uh, your doc is really off. I'm 5'2". I'm 130 lbs. My body mass index has me on the low side of normal. The LOW SIDE.

                There is NO WAY, that at 5'6", normal for you would be 110-120. I'm sorry he told you that.

                  I am 5'6" and used to weigh about 120 when I was 19. That was REALLY thin for my height.

                    I'm so glad to hear from people who love their bodies. Keep it coming! It's good to be healthy, but we are obsessed with both thinness and fatness. Just be healthy, eat right, do some physical things, and call it good.

                        It's crazy.

                          THAT is horrible. My doc has never told me to lose weight, even though I should probably lost 50 lbs!

                            :lol: Yea i figured he was way off. They just don't take into account my build. I'm oddly shaped, my fat doesn't go to my stomach, but to my thighs, making my pants size huge to accommodate them while i need a belt to take care of the extra around my waist. It sucks because clothes shopping is so difficult. But i every once in a blue moon look in the mirror and like what i see. I have curves that belong on someone years my senior and i appreciate it most of the time but hate it when it makes me look so big, it's odd you know? Bodies and expectations.
