    @Itsnotmeitsyou:  Yes! My shoulders are pretty proportional but I’ve always had big hips – even as a scrawny teenager with like zero fat on me, my hip bones are genetically wide (I was told by a modeling agency that even though my waist was WELL within their preferred measurement, my hips were just too big even though it really wasn’t possible for me to lose any fat.) And my head is tiny! LOL – I know that’s a weird thing to say, but it’s true. It really makes me look like a pear!

    Height/weight: 5’0/ 117lbs

    Amount/type of exercise per week: does going up and down the stairs a few times a day count? LOL… I did weight watchers & exercised about 2x per week from August through April and lost about 35lbs. I would do a lot of cardio and mix in weight training. Then I got lazy, and I havent been to the gym in about a month.

    Are you losing/maintaining/putting on weight (in reality and your goals): At this point, I’m trying to maintain… but I am hoping to get my going to the gym motivation back because I would like to tone up a bit before the wedding.

     Think it’s partly individual. While the theme seems to be that diet is more important than exercise, I personally cannot lose without exercise.
