  • I think ALL woman should be proud of their bodies. For the people who worked extra hard to meet a weight goal and got there then yeah there are some bragging rights

  • Nothing is wrong, hell if I could I would. Now I have a problem with women that flaunt their Jabba The Hut figures all over the place. I'm a Jabba The Hut, so I think I can say that.

  • CONGRATS! Thats great that you were able to do that! You should be proud and done let other people tell you otherwise! I have always been thin and have not had to work to keep my figure so i give props to people who work for their goal! I dont think i would be able to do that. Bragg away girl!!

  • I am proud od being plus size myself! I was a size 14 before my son and now I am an 18 but I will only go as far as 14 because thats when I was happiest! I know its hard to lose weight but I already lost 3 lbs. and I will keep on doing it until I hit my goal!

  • I think you need to be sensitive to other people's feelings. I was a size 3 just two months ago but am back up to a healthy size 6. Most people over 35 can't stay that small and a lot of younger people have problems as well. It's great that you feel good about yourself, just don't make others feel bad if they weren't given the same body and metabolism you have.
