    That's a great example of how we carry weight differently. The cut of clothing will cause a size to change. Women will often wear a different size of pants, for example, if they are regular cut, low cut or that new ultra low cut because of where the "waistband" lies - though honestly with super low cut pants it's not really a waistband anymore! You wound pretty fit and I bet you look wonderful and healthy!

    When I was around 110, I was not at all muscular and wore larger pants than I do now. By quite a few sizes too - I think I was a size 8 or 10. Fat kind of...drapes? Muscle pulls in taut. However, bigger bones play a part too. At my heaviest I weighed 210 pounds and wore something like a size 28. I know plenty of women who weighed less at that size and who weighed more.

    It is why after a point we have to let go of the numbers. I hate seeing my weight on a scale. Regardless of how I look or feel physically, it stings my feelings. You may think I'm lucky now, jaydee, but I bet your bones are thicker and stronger and will last longer than mine :)

    I tend to be 'top heavy' (family trait) which always makes me look bigger than I am and makes buying anything that's 'two piece' like jacket & pants really impossible as for the jacket to fit the pants would be falling around my ankles!!
    Thank you for your kind comment - at least its made me feel better!!!

    Honey here in the US, if you're top heavy it's rare for a man to notice anything else about you LOL.

    Rock the 2 piece outfit! Just get the pants hemmed!

    A very size friendly, empowering movie is "Real Women Have Curves". Feel no shame in having them. The guys look at the curvy models and drool - not at the stick figures on the runway.

    My way of losing weight is strictly counting calories :) It really works.

    Thought I'd share this here - I started a new shake diet just under a week ago, with one shake for breakfast each day. I've been pretty active with work, and have been out and about with friends, but no actual exercise has been had. I've also cut down my bread intake and, even though the scales are saying that nothing has changed, I swear my favorite pair of jeans are looser already. It's giving me hope and doing wonders for the motivation.

    Found it inspiring reading all your comments! I can't see a difference in my legs but I can feel it when I tense, plus I'm finding the cross trainer easier:) I haven't rode it two weeks:( I had a palates class today, and I can feel it!
    I know everyone says not to look at the scale but I've lost 4lb in 2 weeks, that's pretty bad lol

    Actually that's really good. Its recommended that you try to lose 1-2lbs a week. Which means you lost 2 lbs / week so far. That is healthy and great. Generally when people start working out seriously they see a big drop after the first little while... that's water weight. And it doesn't persist. The reason we say don't look at the scale is because it doesn't tell you if you have lost water, fat or muscle.
