Oh heck no. In high school I was in marching band and a varsity basketball player. I worked 5 hours a day then, I was a twig! Well, compared to now at least. Although my face did hate me then…though it doesn’t much like me still… I thought I would grow outta acne sooner!

I’m the same weight at 26 that I was when I was 14… a few inches taller, though. Weird!

I wish! Though I was kind of a skinny minny in high school. I loved it then and sometimes miss it now, but I certainly love my new booty way more!

I was pretty much the same shape and size in high school that I am now, but with fewer curves. I also hadn’t quite figured out my hair and makeup and my skin was AWFUL!

I was about the same weight in high school, maybe a couple pounds heavier then.  But my face was much rounder, so I looked bigger.  I like my face/body more now too!  Not to mention that I finally figured out how to deal with my curly hair.

I was about 115 in high school.  Now, at 30 years old, my weight fluctuates from 110-120 depending on my stress level and time/motivation for exercise.  I’m about the same.

I think I am about the same maybe a few lbs lighter. When I went to college I definitley gained the Freshman 15…. or more like the freshman 20-25. Then I lost like 40lbs and got too skinny, then I got pregnant, and now I am probably the same as I was in high school. My weight fluncuated so much its hard to tell.

I went up and down a lot in high school and I still go up and down a bit now, but not as much. I think I’m more consistent in weight, on average, less than in high school.

I was the same height I am now (5’9) and barely 100 lbs soaking wet. Now, I have gained A LOT of weight. Half of it I’m happy with, because I really needed to gain some, but the other half can go somewhere. I am hoping once my feet aren’t killing me, I can finally start working out again!

I was very skinny back in high school, I used be called toothpick cuz I really looked like one. I was close to 6 feet tall and weight 115lbs. Today I’m still the same height, but have manage to put on 20lbs, which is perfect for me.

No way!  I’m glad too.  I was way too skinny back in high school.  I’m about 15lbs heavier now and it makes a world of difference!

Yes.. no… kind of.

I was 68kgs in year 11 but lost weight for my year 12 ball and dropped a whopping 15kgs down to 53kgs (have no idea how I did it, I couldnt imagine doing it now!).

I have been out of school for 7 years and I am 63kgs which is my ‘happy weight’

@Meowkers: My situation sounds very similar to yours! I would say I weight 7-10 pounds less than I did in high school, and I feel like I look much better now. I had kind of a long awkward phase and I also had no clue how to do my hair (I dyed my blonde hair black! horrible!) or makeup. I don’t think I’d reminisce about trying to get back to that high school look…maybe more like my college weight, when I lost about 15 lbs. That was a very different lifestyle, though!
