  • I'm not supposed to answer I guess but..I'm a 6 now and was a 4 before baby. I worked out about 5 times a week. Elliptical machine and weights for toning. I dont like the "skinny" look. I like the fit one.

  • naturally skinny. Actually I have to work hard to gain weight. I just got a wii fit, and for the first two weeks it kept saying I was underweight. So I've been trying to make sure I take in more calories to try and bump my weight up into the normal range. I don't usually exercise, but since I got the wii fit, I try and do yoga every day, and some of the aerobics exercises.

  • I am a size 0, 5'1''and am naturally skinny. Just like it is hard for some people to loose weight it's hard for us to gain wait. I feel self concious about it and don't like to wear clothes that make me look too skinny. It is a battle and it takes a lot of effort for me to gain weight. I don't like being underweight and hate the fact that i am.

  • I am naturally skinny. But when I was younger I had Chron's Disease which has made it hard for be to gain weight. The most I've weighed is 125 when I was pregnant. I am back down to 105 now. I am short though(5'1)

  • I have been the same size, pretty much, since high school. I'm pregnant at the moment, but am usually 5ft tall and 105lbs. - I don't have to work very hard at staying thin yet - but I'm only 30. I hear as you get older it gets tougher to keep weight off.

  • Naturally- I was a size 0 before I got pregnant and now am a size 4 without having done anything. I plan on walking and exercising once it warms up so that I can lose 20 lbs :)
