yeah.. you could've also prevented this.. it would have been weirder if you couldnt fit in the smallest size..
Take a 20-40 min walk every day and lose some weight... for your health's sake.
If you're interested, I went on a program called Ideal Protien. It's a difficult "life style change" but I lost 7 pounds in the first week and had to stop cuz I got fired and didn't have the extra $70 a week for their food. It truely works though. I have 50 pounds to lose that I gained in the hospital after a bad caar accident. I'm on my way, you can be to if that is what you wish to do. Also, being over weight is not the end of the world, it's when the rest of your body is suffering for it like your heart and liver, etc. Everyone is beautiful in their own.
i agree wholeheartedly with #22. i've always been classified as overweight, but my doctor says it's not healthy for me to lose anymore weight, as that's just my body's shape. thinking that everyone who is overweight or obese needs to stop eating and start dieting is stereotypical and thoughtless. not everyone is born to be a size 6 and shaped perfectly. i do understand that this isn't always the case, but if you look at pin-up girls years ago, they are not the size 0 or size 2 models of today. over the years, our culture has placed too much value on being thin and mistakenly assume that thin is for everybody. and that's how we get diseases like anorexia and bulimia that appear in a vast amount of our population today.
While i do agree with everything your saying, I just want to make one point saying that diseases of anorexia and bulimia were around before media went crazy with being thin. And I know first hand that media isn't the only reason people develop these problems. But I agree they certainly don't help.
