    I’m still pretty young so I can’t say as far as 20 years ago I was this…cuz that just doesn’t count.

    I used to be super skinny.  Like skin and bones.  I’m still tiny (115-120lbs), but my hips definitely got wider, and my boobs!  We’re talking size D, on my tiny frame.  *glare*  I’m definitely trying to shrink them (haha, yes…trying for smaller boobs) through exercise in the new year.  I did some swimming last year, and even with just that little bit, I noticed a bit of a difference.

    I’m stubbornly telling myself I won’t let myself gain weight after we get married.  Who knows if it’ll happen.  I want to be one of those sexy moms!  😉

    I’ve lost a large amount of weight in the last few years and then gained some of it back, but my shape (hourglass) always remained the same. Even at my lowest/heaviest I have a very definite curve in for my waist and curve out for my chest/hips.

    When i was in high school i was more athletic–like, boxy, broad athletic. I played basketball, volleyball, and softball–i lifted lots of weights and we had a lot of practices, so I worked out a TON. Now i’m more of a slender athletic and it looks better on my 5’11” frame. Before i felt…intimidating? My weight has gone up probably 15 pounds, but my waist is about the same, if not a little smaller, and my chest has gone from a C to a Dirty Delete. it took a few years it seemed for my body to adjust to the gym changes I was making.  I measure my body fat for my best assessment, though.

    My body really hasn’t changed. I’m still the same size/shape I was in high school (115 pounds, 34C-26-33), and that was 10 years ago.

    My sister is 6 years older than me and has had 2 kids, and she’s still the same size/shape to, so hopefully even kids won’t change my body much.

    My fitness level has changed though. I used to go to dance class 3 times a week. Now I’m in horrible shape, I need to exercise more.

    My hips have gotten much larger. I used to be very proportional (although always overweight). But nowadays, it all goes to the butt.

    When I met Fiance I was 19, and pretty athletic (playing volleyball consistently, even though I wasn’t on any teams),  At 6 feet tall, I was about 160 lbs, and very slender.  Boobs were a small B, and my legs and butt were skinny.  Now, at almost 190 lbs, my boobs have gone up a full size, and my sedentary desk job made it so that I put on some serious non-muscle!  

    I was much more confident about my body at 19 than I am now at 25, but I do love the fact that I have boobs and a butt now:).  The roundness in my midsection and thighs are the only thing that I am working to get rid of!

    My body proportion has changed because I began to gain weight in another place.  I usually gain proportionally, and have a hourglass/pear shape.  But within the last two years I started gaining exclusively on my legs.  I probably gained 5 lbs without knowing because I wear dresses and skirts.  Alas, now I am trying to lose it all!  The goal is 36-30-40 – back to where I was when I was 130 lbs. 🙂

    Well, in the last few years my body has undergone quite the flux. In highschool (younger than 18) I weighed about 90lbs and was a complete bean pole (not healthy either). Then I got pregnant, gained about 50lbs, and my hips & boobs magically appeared. Since then  I have dropped the baby/pregnancy weight, yet maintain a more healthy weight of 105-115–I also got to keep the hips, but sadly not the boobs.

    I have definitely “filled out” a bit, and am ..softer now.. that squishy tummy won’t go no matter how much I try lol.. Some days I am like “dammit!” but for the most part I know I am healthier now than I ever was in the past, so it doesn’t bother me overly much.

    I am still pretty thin, but I can tell I have gained about 20 lbs over the past 4 years. I know I am not big by any means, but I should probably start taking better care of my body because I am not getting any younger and my body isn’t going to magically stop gaining. lol

    The biggest change I have noticed at 51 is a thickening of my middle. More above the belly-button mass I guess. The skin is not quite as tight. The “girls” aren’t as perky. But my Darling Husband still thinks I’m hot, I look good in clothes, so at my age, I guess I should be happy!

    My body shape hasn’t changed since highschool (and there are some part I wouldn’t mind changing) except the weight change. From the past few years, I’ve gone from 95lbs to 100lbs and i’m 5’3.

    I’ve bounced all over the scale for as long as I can remember, but I have been told that my weight distributes evenly, which I guess keeps me somewhat proportional(??).

    I have an hourglass figure and since I was 13 I had hips, booty and boobs. I danced and cheered in high school, so my body was much more athletic than some of the other teens.  I remember in high school a couple of guys would say I had “big” legs. That always made me feel awful. Years later I realized they meant my legs were athletic and muscular. Gaaaaaaawwwwddd….if only I had those legs now!
