Quoting Ivana, expecting #3!:" We don't eat chicken every night, we don't have fresh food every night either, we do buy the big thing ... [snip!] ... excuses for gaining weight. I was able to get healthy and lose 15lbs while on a limited budget, so again, it can be done!! "
Hamburger Helper? That is HORRIBLE for you. And YUCK!
I've been roughly the same weight (usually within 20 pounds) since I had my son..nearly 11 years ago--even during my 2 pregnancies after that (gained 13 and 8 pounds). What does that say about me? I haven't gained really and haven't lost...no matter what I do. Gym, vegetarian, no red meat, counting calories, portioning food, etc..nothing.
Quoting Vindictive:" Peace out homies. I'm not fat, my children aren't fat (well.. my 6 month old IS :lol: ) and we eat ... [snip!] ... Fuck Abercrombie and their clothes. And all of the popular kids who now have a huge ego from a man with a fucked up face."
Quoting FroggysMommy:" It's amazing what you can find on other people.... Hey Ivana, here you are harping on how it is SO easy ... [snip!] ... the answers to everything!!!! Yet, you give your kids fucking ramen. Hypocrisy, is that your middle or last name?"
Yeah, she's thinner because of genetics, not because of her diet. Figures. I know a lot of people like this.
Quoting TheNuge:" He looks weird and his public comments are dumb, BUT every business has a target market. He is just ... [snip!] ... shouldn't aspire to be underweight but they also shouldn't find lots of clothing "to grow into" if they are already overweight."
I don't think there's anything wrong with having a certain target in mind for your business either, but it was the comments. Things like saying only the "cool" kids in schools can wear his stuff. Implying that overweight kids can never be cool or that they're gross. Attitudes such as his cause more bullying to occur.
Quoting Destinite:" Many brands are geared toward small people, as there are brands for fat people, tall people, etc. I ... [snip!] ... just because they make it in your size (larger) doesn't mean you should rock it. Example: fat people in coochie cutter shorts."
No one looks good in coochie cutter shorts really. They're trashy IMO.
I wear capris. I own ONE pair of shorts. Not keen on showing off my cottage cheese or paleness.
Quoting Sly Saffy:" Aren't overweight people typically healthier than skinny and obese people? I remember reading that somewhere."
Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" No one looks good in coochie cutter shorts really. They're trashy IMO. I wear capris. I own ONE pair of shorts. Not keen on showing off my cottage cheese or paleness."
I definitely agree! lol
Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" Agreed. She said size 22...she carries it very well. She looks smaller than me and I'm a 16-18. Excuse the crayon on the mirror..lol "
For the record, you're definitely smaller.

I feel like a whale. People tell me that I look like I weigh less than I do but I don't see it :(
<blockquote><b>Quoting ღFrodoliciousღ:</b>" That's the size I wear, and my friends think I wear a 14 or a 12. It's all about how you carry the weight. "</blockquote>
I do have ONE pair of 14s that I can fit. It was a glorious day when I tried them on. They're tight but Orwell I got em on and zipped damn it...haha

I love wearing them to bed or around the house while cleaning, but I agree they are trashy to wear in public.
