Oh..thigh measurement - I dont know what mine is right now but at the smallest mine were 22" They had actually gotten down to 21, but I am one of those that DO gain some leg muscle and I run a lot and lift and I have very solid legs.

I have no hips though. My waist at its smallest was 27" and my hips were 34

Thigh measurement = 22". We're not going to measure my tummy. We'll just leave it at that.

I hurt my foot last night (long adventurous story that I don't want to get into). Suffice it to say that after 45 minutes icing it and drinking a glass of wine didn't help the sleep much and today I doubt I'll be able to get a shoe on. Looks like I'll be skipping my treadmill workout for the next week. Limping.....

Oh, you poor thing! There must be something in the air - I fell down the stairs last night & wrenched my shoulder. It is not swollen, but is pretty painful & keeps popping - I'm thinking I probably pulled a ligament. Fortunately it's upper body, so I can still do my elliptical workout!

OK - I hate my bf's scale!!!

Last weekend it measured me at the same weight as mine. This weekend it measured me at almost 2 lb heavier than mine! How does that work? I know I didn't put 2 lb on overnight.

So now I'm in a grump. But I am still being good - I figure when i get home I can get my 'real' weight - or at least a weight that I like the look of - lol!

I wonder if 21" thighs look differnet on someone who is 5'7" vs. someone who is 5'5" - it's all about proportion isn't it?

Right now my stats are: 34.5 - 26 - 37. Looks fine but that doesn't take into account my jelly belly which sits neatly below my 26" (when I pull the tape tight) waist. That is the only part of my body I am still unhappy with - the belly. The thighs are still a bit wobbly and it would be nice to see 20" or even 19" but I can live with 21" - but the belly has to go!!

Well...I'm 5'3" and I seriously doubt I would ever get into the teens on thigh measurement.

Body shape & height do make a huge difference. I remember my measurements were 34-27-36....way back before I had my daughter.....I didn't have any fat at all on me, but a 27 waist. I look fine at a 30 waist...just how I'm built. Right now, I'm all tummy, back fat and boobs . I actually can't wait to get those babies back down to a B-cup....so much more comfortable than D!

p.s. got back on the scale this afternoon....149! WTH?

Well, I don't really want to mine to go down any further - I am in a 34D/C. I've always had big boobs (usually 38DD but I've been higher) and these are quite nice tyvm! I feel almost normal at last!

Had an awesome NSV today! I went to yoga, & the instructor was one whose class I haven't been in for a while. She came up to me in the locker room afterwards; I thought she was going to make a comment on my practice, but what she said was, "Susan, you are TINY!"

Wow...I have had no problems today staying at what is normally a very low calorie intake for me. Wonder why? Yesterday was similar.

Now I just have to not eat more today.

Grr - up a pound on my scales this morning!!

Ah well, I'm still on track for my current goal anyway, although it was nice being ahead of myself.

My perfectly on-plan weekend was rewarded by a drop on the scales. It's too bad - it really WOULD be terrific to be able to splurge at least a little bit on the weekends & keep losing - but apparently that's not where I am right now.

ETA - Oh, & I had to buy smaller jeans, too - the pair I bought 10 pounds ago are now falling off me!
