    Maybe I'm missing something, but the point is to be the best you can be and keep improving. I doubt I could ever look like Staci, my skin won't allow it. I don't give a shit. I just want to look better than I do now.

    I don't know, maybe I have some weird thing about muscular women that carry normal (that 24-25%) body fat.... but I think they have some of the best looking bodies and what more, they age better than the skinny no muscle women and don't look as hard the lean, muscular women.
    I'm not complaining about how I look. I am happy with how I look. But I do understand that there are many who would look at me and think to themselves man that lady ought to stop stuffing donuts in her pie hole and get some exercise. Little would they know I kick ass and a donut hasn't passed my lips in several years.

    I didn't know that. I don't know what my body fat is actually. Probably in the 25-31% range. I don't really worry about it that much unless my clothes start to get tight. Then I know I've overdone it on the wine and chocolate.

    Thanks!

    I've even been decorating my body lately and that makes me feel even better about it, which is kinda weird.

    Those are called bitches with eating disorders. They need to move to North Carolina. If I recall... you are in an affluent part of California. In the rest of the US.... no one sees you at Walmart and thinks you are eating too many donuts. Trust me.

    I don't think anyone would look at you and think that, unless they're crazy. I must admit that I have had thoughts like that when looking at some people (it's mean and judgmental, I know), but the people who evoke those thoughts are usually two or three times your size.

    Oh, and I don't think your thighs look big at all. They kind of look the same size as mine, and I've never thought of my thighs as big. Maybe other people do? If so, they can go jump out a window. My problem is entirely with my waist/belly area. Anyhow, this is quite off topic.
