I have been very blessed with a kinda-well-proportioned body--- and being 6'1" definitely helps!!! Unfortunately, that "you carry it well" excuse has led me to the size I am today. That's why I don't tell anyone my weight (besides on here) b/c people are so awed by numbers and not what they see. I wear a size 22 pants (and even some 20's) yet I tipped the scales at over 300 pounds.
People don't realize that I'm tall and broad--- all those long bones have to weigh something, hello!
So, even when I was down to a 14 at my lowest weight, I was still over 200 pounds, a number most people balk at!
It just goes to show that a weight, a number, a # sign means nothing. It's how you look and feel. I looked awesome at 215 and felt awesome and was healthy and in the best shape of my life. I could jog 3 miles in 30 minutes several days a week. I was happy. And I was over 200 pounds. So many people complimented me on the change--- they didn't need to know the number, they just needed to know that they thought I looked excellent!
Sometimes I wonder about the whole "model" thing... my sister is SKINNY and she is the one who turns heads everwhere she goes. I can't imagine being even thinner than 215 and going out with her--- this tall, broad, sexy lady finally turning some heads of her own!
ahhhhhh to dream!
