Just finished one of the funniest books ever called "Thin Women are Evil". Absolutely hysterical! As one who is forever struggling to control her weight and improve her fitness, the book had alot of truth in it.

Anybody else want to share their fitness, and diet stories, ladies?

I was overweight until around 2001 when I got laid off my job and my marriage started to go to pot.

I'm 5'3" and 110 now (size 2), employed and divorced. I lost about 37 pounds since 2001 through diet changes and exercise. I also quit smoking last year and didn't really see any weight gain following that either. I am wearing clothes I wore when I was in college in 1992 and it's a fantastic feeling.

I lost 70 pounds back in '99 and kept most of it off til I got pregnant again. Now Im about 15 pounds or so from my goal again. It's hard, ALWAYS a struggle.

I have dropped a pants size, but haven't really lost weight. I guess this is due to weight lifting. My weight varies so much from day to day I just got frustrated with the scale. I just look at the fact that I am a whole size smaller than I was last year, and feel better for the most part.

Thats why saying "losing weight" is a poor way to say what you really want, which is losing fat. Get a scale that measures your weight and body composition, displayed as a body fat percentage. Get that percentage down, and don't worry so much about the actual weight part.

Buy yourself one of those tape measures used by seamstresses if you find your scale demotivating. I'm convinced the majority of my weight came off my rear end and middle. The scale isn't going to show you that part.

I did hear a lot more about this book though. While there's a huge drive to be "thin" the author is concerned about what message this is sending to young girls. Probably not unfounded considering the "Olsen twin" and this new look Lindsey Lohan has cultivated.
