Measuring Up

I saw this on Pinterest and wanted to address it.  First off, click on the image to enlarge it and see how you measure up.

This picture illustrates the push for women to achieve the hourglass figure, the original voluptuous look before fat girls online started using it as a way to make themselves feel better about their extra curves fat rolls.  I think these are fair measurements to aim for.  You don't end up looking like a twig or a waif.

I don't feel bad about that statement.  I was fat from thyroid issues from the time I hit puberty to about 10 years after I left high school, which wasn't too long ago.  I have always been active and attempted to eat well, but that thyroid issue was a big blocker.  Now I'm down to a size 6/7 and I cannot stand fat people who do nothing but complain and look for an easy out.  Its not easy.  You have to work out and watch what you eat all the time, just make that your new way of being and don't consider it a temporary thing.

Anyway, it looks like I have a little ways to go before I'd even come close to that chart in the picture.

My measurements:
Bust: 37"
Waist: 27"
Hips: 41"
Thighs: 22"
Knees: 15"
Calf: 15-3/4"
Ankle: 9"
