But I think the research on fertility shows that for most women, being much under 18-20% will impair one's ability to conceive. That only matters much if you're really trying hard to get preggers, though.

My husband just started a new job yesterday and has to be out of town for the first two weeks.
I woke up to this text message "I don't know if its funny or sad when I see all these giant fat bodies carrying around huge bags of mini cupcakes" I can totally picture it...
Also, My local pharmacy now pushes candy and cookies on everyone at checkout. I'm SO OBVIOUSLY very pregnant, and I really didn't mean to glare at her when she suggested I eat a cookie. I know it's up to each of us to say no to sweets, and they are just trying to do their job and push sales... but they should really pay attention to who they are pushing that garbage on.

I read an article saying the average American throws away 4.5 lb of trash per DAY. My first thought was "how the HELL can you go through that much meat (styrofoam packing), veggies (ends and trimmings), and toilet paper?"
Then I remembered that not everyone ate like us.
I conceived easily at that weight/bodyfat%, and when I dropped another 15lb and even more body fat a few years later, conceived easily again.
The only thing I could imagine working well would be something like water tank displacement, maybe?

I think DEXA is probably the most accurate method. Other than autoposy. Autopsy is definitely the way to go.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
Ate my lunch at Whole Foods today. Basically got maybe a cup of leafy greens and a pound of chicken breast, salmon, and shrimp. I sat down across from this lady who was eating a tiny container of canola oil filled tuna salad mayo and a small bagel. When I wasn't looking, she would stare at me eating my food. Sad thing is, calorically we probably ate the same amount.
