    I feel pretty happy at the weight I am, but at times I feel like I want to be really fat and other times really skinny depending on my mood.  Each body type is interesting to touch and has it's good and bad features depending if you think anything is good or bad.  I think just about every body type is attractive.  I have been attracted to both really skinny, fat, and inbetween people.

    I have just lost 5 kgs and now I am in the correct weight according to my height.

    So what I am doing is maintaining it. I find myself fasting once a week helps to maintain my correct weight as well as getting rid of the toxic that I consumed from the food.

    My secret of losing that much weight is monitoring the amount of calories intake and reducing it. Example if I am taking 3000 calories per day, I reduce it to 2500 calories and in a month I reduce by 2 kgs.

    I'm generally too thin.  I'd LOVE to gain a good 15 pounds - but I need it most in the legs, my chicken legs. . . .are almost embarrassing

    I am one of those who wants to lose weight.  I decided at the start of the year to set a goal of losing 20lbs. (knowing I would be happy to lose 10lbs. and thrilled with 15lbs.)  So far, I have only managed to lose 8lbs. and I'm sure they were the easiest 8.  So I guess I am 2lbs. from happy, 7lbs. from thrilled, and still 12lbs. from ecstatic...

    Currently I'm 5 kilograms over my weight range. (God only knows what my BMI has risen too.  Scared to go to doctor to find out.) I'm usually in the middle of the suggest range for my height, but due to injury I haven't been able to exercise. I'm hanging out to get back on the bike and ride those kilos off. Hopefully I'll be back there in the next couple of weeks.

    At the moment, I am actually quite happy with my weight, and I'd like to keep it at the current number. Of course, if I keep eating like I have been for the past couple of weeks (I've been feeling a little restless lately, so that's what I do), my self-satisfaction will not last for much longer....

    This is great question. I would love to weigh around 125 or so! I can't seem to ever get over 112 or 115. The most I have ever weighed was 115. I have a fast metabolism and it's all a part of my genetics. I can eat like a little fat piggy, but never gain a pound. DON'T say it! NO, you don't wish you had my problem! It sucks for us naturally thin people just as much as it does for those who want to lose weight. It's extremely frustrating to try and gain weight and very difficult! Are we healthy, YES! I was once declined for health insurance through a company I won't say, for being TOO HEALTHY....haha LOL. Regardless, my BMI isn't what it needs to be but I am a really healthy little lady. I've tried all the protein drinks on the market, but those kinds of things constipate me, so that is NOT a good thing. You would be surprised how hard it is to actually stretch your stomach, compared to those that need to shrink it, in order to lose weight. It’s pretty tough! All the thin people know what I mean ;-) I've always hated the word skinny, and for thin people, the word skinny is like the word FAT is to overweight people, so it's an ugly word for me and many many others! :-) One great thing about being a healthy thin is I've been offered several times to do modeling :-)

    I have lost over a stone in the past two months and now weigh 11 stone, which I don't think is a lot.  However, no matter how much I lose, I still have a spare tyre, which refuses to go.

    I decided this week to lose a few pounds and lost 2 in three days. This encouraged me to lose more and I've set a target of 12 pounds in 12 weeks.

    I need to get back into lifting some weights. I'd like to put on 10-15 pounds. Basically put back the muscle I lost by not working out!

    I'd love to lose enough to feel confident in a bathing suit this summer. I'm starting swim classes with my toddler this weekend and I'm terrified at the thought of wearing my suit in public. I'm hoping my son's cuteness will draw the attention away from me!

    I'd like to lose at least 20lbs more. Since Feb. I have lost 20lbs, which was the rest of my pregnancy weight. I'd like to be back to the weight I was in college five years ago, before having my two kids.
