I'm on the other end of body types. In my college years I was "boobs on a stick." Definately too thin at 5-4 and 90 pounds. Went home after each of my 4 sons in my pre-pregnancy clothes. Then I hit 40, bad job, stress, went back to school, more stress and ballooned up to just shy of 200. It's been a struggle and I'm down to fluctuating between 160-170. I'm trying to eat PB, but am unable to purge the kitchen due to DH and DS. While I don't see the pounds shifting down, I do feel my shape changing. My face is slimmer and I'm getting back my waist. I think it doesn't matter if you were called thick or skinny growing up, as either hurts and lingers in your memory.
