    i find it really intresting that you can get a group of people who all weigh different weights yet take the same size clothes!
    even 2 people weighing the same who are the same height can look completley different,one will look much bigger or smaller than the other,just gos to show how we shouldnt focus on what the scales say too much,because what may be heavy for one person can look ok on another.
    am i making any sense lol?
    my friend weighed 3 stone more than her sister yet they took the same size trouser,and they were of similar height.
    i guess the point im trying to make is dont feel bad when u see someone saying they are really big and their 14 or 15 stone and u r about 18 stone,coz i know from personal expeirence u may not look drastically different,even though there is 4 stone difference.
    we are all different shapes and builds and weight doesnt always come in to it regarding ur looks.
    ok iv waffled on and iv know idea if ive made any sense but i now what i mean :confused:
    i think ;) lol

    Your racial make – up also affects your weight. Black people have denser bones so tend to weigh more. Other cultures have bigger hips and boobs and so may weigh less but wear a bigger size. Strange…………..and even stranger is shoe size…………….

    Me and my brother both 6foot dead, I weight 1/2st heavier, wear a size smaller jeans, size bigger shoes, same size tops and people say I look smaller than him and cant believe I still weight 18 stone and even more cant believe what I did weigh, most people thought I was a stone or 2 heavier than him before and often people thought we were twins although was more like 6 1/2 difference.
    Even more odd that we are brothers.

    fantastic soolaboola! people at work were looking at me like i had gone green when i told them i have 7st left to lose. i don't know where i was hiding all the weight to be honest!!! x

    breasts apparently weigh about 8lbs each....i think this is for like a DD...not sure how reliable that is though!!!! if this is the case, i can blame over 1st of my weight on my boobs! x

    badger1980! fantastic weight loss!!! x
