Let's really think about this...
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
Ok, I know this is maybe a little touchy, but I just have to know. I am 153 lbs. I am a size 8-10 pants, and I am a size s/m top. Now, here's the deal. I don't feel like I look as big as a size 8-10. I k now I'm not little, but I'm not fat either. 8-10 isn't a fat size, but why do we all think that.
So, here's the deal, I am 5'2 and 153 lbs. My measurements are as follows:
Waist: 29.25 inches
Belly Button: 33 inches
Hips: 42.25 inches
Thigh 26 inches.
Holy cow that sounds so freaking big! But I just don't feel like I look that big. I'm a wider framed girl, I get that, but for realz, how wide can one really be. I must have a lot of inches to lose.
If you aren't ashamed....what are your measurements? Your size?
I think it's interesting to see how completely different our bodies can be yet we wear the same size in clothes. I think another comparison is what is your body fat in comparison to your measurements? And then, take someone else at 153 lbs and compare a picture of them to me and their body looks totally different. It's just nuts. We compare compare compare, but really...aren't we all so totally different any way? How much can we really compare and wish to be someone else until we get the fact that we just aren't made like them and we have to try to be the best that OUR body is capable of being. It just amazes me.
Just some random thoughts I had today. =) It's my last day of conferences and I'm so super tired, so my mind is racing now. Tomorrow starts fall break! Wooo!
