This sounds very much like Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, which I am reading as we speak. Basically it's a mostly vegan diet, about 10% animal prods suggested, and he says that it's better to eat some meat etc and stuff yourself with fibre, fruits and veggies, than to be a total vegetarian that just eats pastries etc. (makes good sense of course!) Basically it is about maximizing the nutrients you get largely through a vegetarian diet, and then the rest takes care of itself.

Oh dear, no that wasn't me! I was at a Philly show in May.

"really thin" I am definitely not, but I am reasonably happy with my weight right now, as I fit my clothes (which I didn't too well last spring! )

I am in the mid/upper 130s and 5'5". I'd LOOOOVE to get to 120, but I haven't weighed that since my teens, so I'm sure that would be a hellish slog, and not entirely necessary.

Here is a pic of me taken by our very own Diemen! That's also me in my avatar.

You are beautiful! No weight gain or loss needed, I say.

Sorry Mrs. Edge! It must've been someone else that looked like you (that's a good thing). But yeah, you look great! I'm 5'3" and weigh 130lbs, but I'm content wearing a size 6. I actually bought 2 pairs of 4's the other day and they fit!!!! Congratulations on your weight loss!

briarrose, that's a perfectly good weight! And size 6? I am a size 10! So you are doing very well.

That's weird that you're a size 10. You don't look it! You look much smaller than that.

That's what I don't actually understand. I see shows like the Biggest Loser where there are these women who weigh 165 or something at the end of the show and now fit size 8 or less, and I in the 130s with a 27" waist and 34 A cup have never worn anything smaller than "medium" or 8!!! I have big hips, but they aren't THAT big!

I just don't get it!

That is strange. Your measurements show that you'd be a 6. That's what my waist is, but I'm a 36C. I'm not sure what my hips are, but they're not small. Maybe it's the brand of clothes you buy. In Gap I wear a 6, Banana Republic 4, J Crew 4, Old Navy 6. My best friend weighs 165 and she wears an 8/10, but she looks like she'd weigh about 145.

I keep telling her that her clothes are baggy! Now I'm vindicated!
