But on a less scary note... YAY! I've got mail! ;)
in other words... LJ's got the mail issue in control. Woot. :)
That's not at all what I said. I said everybody's different. I'm saying that adding the 5 lbs. for every inch over 100 lbs. does NOT work for everybody because it could be an estimate way too high, as it is for me, and probably others, or maybe way too little for a bunch of other people. Just be happy with the weight that you naturally gravitate toward. When you're not gaining or losing, you've got to be doing something right. That's all I'm saying. I get made fun of for being too skinny, but I'm very stable at 112, so it's got to be the right weight for me. Oh, and I'm healthy except for allergies and multiple sclerosis, which have nothing to do with weight. I don't agree with the calculation because it couldn't possibly be right for everyone. Everybody's different.
I was just curious. At my skinniest when I was still a lot over 110, I looked scary skinny... so I was just clarifying. I wish people could be happy with their weight. The society sure doesn't support that though.

Re: no, no, not my calculations
Yah, it's so true. All the magazines make fun of the tiniest bits of cellulite on the backs of thin women's legs, and do you think guys give a shit about that. And then those same mags. make fun of girls they think are too skinny. Every once in a while the same people who are made fun of are also shown in a glamorous light, but nobody's beyond those who just don't want anybody to feel good about their weight. In my experience, everybody likes a different size body anyway. I found somebody who liked skinny girls. Yay me. I also know, actually a lot more guys, who like a girl to weigh about fifty to a hundred pounds more than me, even several inches shorter. Good for them too. Yay them.
