Anyone ever go to MyBodyGallery.com?
A friend of mine sent me there after I lost weight and couldn’t wrap my head arround how much I changed. I searched for ladies my size, wieght and hieght and I kept thinking “Oh well they all look way smaller then me >:O Untill my mom AND my SO came over and said that they all looked the same size as I did.
Eye openeing. I look nothing like I do in my head. It was a freeing thought
Just wanted to share

It is so interesting how people carry weight differently.
Looking in my weight range some look quite slim, and others are podgy!

I’ve been to this site before, but it’s been awhile. I’m curious to glance again.
ETA: I just visited the site again. I sit here and think these girls look WAY better than me. Haha. I don’t know how some people can pull it off while I feel like a frumpy lump.

@MissFireFlower: I’ve lost a lot of weight and we don’t have a full length mirror (I know how does a woman not have a full length mirror- I complain about it daily, but never get around to getting one). I have a pair of jeans that are a 2 and I’ve convinced myself that those jeans just run really big and I’m not a 2. Well then I went and bought some shorts and tried on the 2 and the lady looked at them and says, “you need a 0!” and it hit me. I have zero clue what I look like and still see myself as a size 12.

Interesting site! Half the girls in my search are skinny fat like me, the rest are ripped! I suppose it makes me want to work out more… a little bit…

That site actually frustrates me. Maybe I just carry my weight well but I always feel like the people there with my height/weight look way bigger than me. It makes me more frustrated that I can’t get my weight down to where I’d like.

This site made me feel a little fat. LOL thats horrible. Some of the girls look great, some (which are probably closer to me) lil pudgey.
Good thing i am on a diet for the wedding.
Ugh body issues. They plague us all.

@Rush1986: I felt exactly the same.

I love that site! I actually uploaded a photo of myself in a moment of bravery!
It’s super interesting to see how we all look at different weights/heights. I do feel like many of the other women look way better than me…
I am looking forward to reaching my goal weight to upload a new pic.

@Mrs.KMM: You’re likely more fit than average – if that’s the case then the actual number on the scale shouldn’t mean as much 🙂

It’s amazing how were all so different, with the same stats.

WOW – Just spent an hour on this site….it’s fascinating and makes me feel so much better about my body! We girls are way too hard on ourselves sometimes.

I am way hotter than those girls! 😉

I actually posted this site in the response to a “What size do I look” thread. It’s crazy to look at, isn’t it? All the other girls with my measurements look so much skinnier AND they don’t have to deal with my FMIL! Not fair!
