Well, it all depends on your height, certainly, but it is interesting that the black community seems to appreciate a voluptuous woman more than some other races do. I've also noticed a correlation with older wealthy white women in certain areas of my city being almost painfully thin. It's like a status thing, but at the same time a desperate attempt at holding onto their youth and beauty.
I've always hated that the fashion world has made underweight women the social norm that so many women strive for, leading to eating disorders and lifetimes self-worth issues. Health should be the beauty goal everyone strives for, rather than numbers on the scale or looking like anorexic models!
I reached my goal of 149 eleven months after starting to lose, but that number has crept away as I've tried to maintain for over three years--wish that major loser who lived in my body for a while would come back!
