So, this is not fun! At all!
I'm starting this year at roughly 155 lbs. By all measures I've seen, that's on the high end of normal for my height based on weight on BMI. I'm actually not in this whole "get in better shape" kick for the weight loss. If that happens... fabulous! But I really just need to be able to be in better shape and healthier. And I like my daily Dr. Pepper and weekly Taco Bueno.
I never want to be that girl that worries about little fluctuations in my weight. To that end, the only scale in our house is the Wii Fit. I had a friend recently freak out about 0.8 lbs of gain (!), and I honestly find that attitude kind of ugly. And if I know my husband at all, he would, too.
Speaking of my husband, right after he took these pictures for me, he said, "I love how you look." He's not perfect, but he got that one right!
Anyway, I have a thin frame. All of my fat (besides my face and upper arms) is in my belly and upper-upper thighs. I have very skinny legs, otherwise. So while 155 isn't "fat," I think it looks fat on me. It's all about distribution, right? And for historical perspective, I graduated high school at about 125 and got married at 135. I think 135-ish would be perfectly reasonable.
(I miss my nursing b00bs!) (And yes, that is a nursing bra, why do you ask?)
