Before I read further, I wanted to say: We are the same height and I'm 10 lbs heavier and you look GREAT.

My BMI puts me at OBESE and I most certainly am not. Could I stand to lose some belly middle from kiddos? YES. Will you see me in a bikini? NO. Will I gross ya out in a regular bathing suit - probably not.

ALWAYSBEHIND: I think you owe Gidget an apology. Your tone and the way you've chosen to reiterate yourself is way out of line. It's downright offensive!

Thank you so much Chele :) You have totally made my day and made me feel feel so much better about myself...I naturally have low self esteem when it comes to my figure and now I'm actually smiling...thank you.

Lol,well that's one way to put it I use to love oprah when I was a kid and then her show turned weird or maybe I just got older..i don't know.
Anyways,thank you as well. I can stand to lose a few lbs but I too thought it was rather harsh when I was talking about BMI..if I were I would be on some fitness website to ask that.....Yea,I got fat on me but I still wear the same jean size I did when I was a sophmore in highschool and I'm 22 now.

I think I might go for a skito pad,btw..if tom ever writes me back about it.

While your not super heavy or anything, I would err on the side of caution being that your saddle is tree less. Personally even if you were super small I would always go for the most shock absorbing saddle pad anyways.

You can tell tone from the typed word? Interesting.

OP - if you plan on riding CTR, you will find out if you are a 'heavy' rider when the horse is checked after the ride. Pay close attention to negative points for back and legs.

Since when is THAT heavy??? I realize something around 100-150 pounds was considered light; 150-200 medium and 200+ heavy. I know men that weigh almost 300 pounds that ride and they are HEAVY. I do understand about the BMI scale, but c'mon....

According to BMI I don't exist (too skinny to be on the chart). It's a garbage system.
