Yes,definitely. I'm 5ft 10 and about 148 at the moment. I got down to 130 whilst I was having chemo and was feeling great - truly I was so sick mentally at that point because I looked absolutely awful by all accounts - but I was finally beginning to feel acceptable. My body made its way back to a healthy weight and I've really struggled because I'm a big girl again. I feel large next to other women even if theyre significantly overweight. I envy petite and curve because I'm large, athletic etc.

I would love not to be "big". I am a fairly fine boned build (think runner) too so curves are not for me - any weight is just flab, not shape.

But you're right, I just have to accept it, it isn't going to change.

Congrats on your success! My aunt was a tall woman and thin and also very beautiful. She seems to know she's beautiful because she acted like it to my face but I realize now that she had some issues that she never let slip to me. My mother, who was her best friend (she married my mom's brother), told me that my Aunt hated being tall and felt large sometimes. Even though to everyone else she was thin and beautiful. I was really surprised by that but it goes to show you that everyone has things they don't like or feel insecure about. You are not weird for feeling that way and I think we all get it. I am more muscular than I like and wish I were more dainty sometimes too but that's just the way I'm built. My parents were both college/elite athletes and develop muscle quickly and I am the same way genetically. The only issue with that is that muscle turns to fat easily too when it's not "honed" lol. And being that I'm a female I don't particularly like being muscular.

Girl, you look GREAT!!!!!!!!! Your weight is appropriate for your height. You look healthy. I am 5'8 and my goal weight is 165lbs (221 lbs now). I am laughing because the other day, I was just thinking "I can't wait to see space between my legs". Happy Belated Birthday!!

Floridays, you look amazing! You are one of my inspirations! I'm not quite at goal yet, but getting close, and I had a similar moment to you just the other day. I was dressed in my exercise pants which are quite form fitting (holds in the loose skin so I can exercise more easily) and I noticed in the mirror that little gap at the top of my thighs even with my legs together. I have never had that little air space between my legs! It's only at the top of my thighs, but still it was a huge moment for me!

Congratulations on your weight loss and happy (belated) birthday!

Kathy

I so get you!! I have been told I'm a big girl all my life. Now...just so you know...I used to be that height and weight exactly and you are now my goal weight. I'm currently 309 and my goal weight is 159! I can't wait for that space between my legs. About being the biggest girl in the room? Strap some 3" size 10 pumps on and strut your stuff...you're gorgeous!!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

        Yogurt. Matcha yogurt. ;) LOL. I could have thinned down yogurt and kefir on my full liquids phase. Maybe email your RD and ask if that's also on your full liquids. I use Peach and Cream, and Bananas and Cream in my yogurt to thin it into a soup right now. :)

      2. GreenTealael

        I put a call in this morning they will get back to me shortly.

      3. FluffyChix

        Yay!! I bet they will say yes!

      4. GreenTealael

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
