I've got a pair of jeans from Gap size 6, I'm wearing them right now. And it's hard to find jeans in regular stores here. I guess I live in a skinny people country. I'm the heaviest of my class in both schools!

LOL at being American and having silly American sizes. I like buying smaller sizes but I'm so afraid they won't fit me in a few weeks. I bought a few new shirts that are size small (just tank tops...nothing extravagant) and they fit me nicely.

It's stupid that models are all so tall and thin. A lot of men don't even find them attractive...too skeletal. I don't want to be so skinny, anyway.

This is what a scale is: a weighing machine. This is what a scale measures: level, size, balance, range,

worthiness, lovability, deservingness, goodness or badness, beauty, body

I am not afraid to make mistakes.

these sizes you all are talking about are confusing me!
That's what I get for being american!! lol.
I've begun to get excited though because I'm able to shop at more stores that i used to be able to!!
It's nice not to have to shop in the "womens" or "Plus Size" sections!!

I can't find clothes my size in regular stores, because I'm too big! Not too tall, but too fat! Actually now I'm starting to find things that I can squeeze myself in, but not until now (I'm 5'3" and 132lbs)

Cricketro - that's because fashion is an unfair and unrealistic business, if it was a reflection of real women, being your size should not be a problem!

Good morning ladies!

CRICKETRO, your new picture is so cute! You could be a model on top of everything else you do. Stunning.

XIETAXIETA, don't worry about those couple of pounds. In my experience, weekend pounds come off pretty easily, as its mostly liquid and just space filling you up. Don't get discouraged--you're doing FABULOUSLY!

thanks ;) i actually hate those "in front of..." photos. and yes i know what you mean:) as you can see, even my wedding photos have a "Story" to tell. DH loves to take photos of me doing stuff...like working out on the stepper, working at my laptop...playing in the park.

we are off to go shopping and i want to get a Frisbee (sp?!) so that we can play outside ;)

I love the picture! It's great to have pictures of everyday things, like working and things like that, because after a few years you enjoy more looking at those rather than the typical "picture in front of the eiffel tower" if that makes any sense...

I should take a look and see if I have any pics to upload, I'm wasting sparkgallery space!

Ahhh time zone differences...
I had bad news this morning. I went on the scales. I've gained 3lbs through the weekend! How come it takes so long to lose them, and then here they are? I keep telling myself that just 1 bad day can't do that, that maybe I just gained because I've gone from drinking 10 cups of water to almost nothing the last 3 days...
I was even hoping I wouldn't lose due to the bad day, but I would mantain! It's crazy!

Well, it's already Monday here.What are you up to today?
I have to go to the bank to change some Euros into Sterling Pounds for London, then I'm meeting a friend at 2pm and then I'll head home to prepare the conference I have on tuesday.
My parents are leaving for the week, so it's just me and my brother, we'll see how that goes.
Also, is weigh in day, I'm not sure if I'll do it. I know it's higher (because my last weigh in was one of those days when you know it's unrealistically low... you get those too?) and I've done nothing but eating a lot since then. We'll see. I'll be happy if it's just +1lb.

Happy Monday everyone!
