I don’t know what i weighed in HS, but i know what i weighed my freshman year of college and i weigh less now, so i would say yes that i weigh less because I wear a smaller size. Probably 50lbs less.

I weigh about 10 pounds more but I somehow am smaller.  I was a hardcore runner and tennis player in high school but about 10 years ago, I became a hardcore yogi and it completely transformed my body.  I had a lot of muscle before but now it just looks…different and I’m more compact and fit into smaller sizes too.

Yep. I was around 30 lbs heavier in high school than I am now. I was a bit of a couch potato then, now I hardly watch any tv since we don’t have cable. Ideally, I’d like to lose 10 more lbs.

No way I’m about 12 lbs heavier now. In high school I was super active and athletic, now I sit at a desk all day and it’s a miracle if I work out twice a week 🙂

lol no. I was in marching band, dance team, soccer, track, swim team, ect in high school. I thought I was fat back then! I would kill 100 puppies to be back at that weight!

Heck to the no! I weighed between 100-110 lbs in high school. Now I weigh 118-120. I am still very thin, but my hips are curvier and my boobs are a bit bigger. My abs are still rockin’ the house, fortunately!

I looked like a prepubescent boy most of the way through school. Now I finally have a femenine shape, so no I wouldnt trade that in to weigh 10 pounds less. I would like to have my flat tummy back though.

Funny, my dad just actually said to me last night he thinks I’m skinnier than in HS. Not sure if I agree, maybe about the same. Don’t remember what I weight exactly, but I was skinny cuz I ran cross-country and played lacrosse and basketball. I def gained 20 pounds or so in the first 2 years of college, but have worked all of that off. I’m pretty happy with myself now, just working on maintaining and continuing to tone!

I was sort of starving through a lot of highschool–not anorexia, just family issues. (Not poverty, crazy mom who wouldn’t have much more than mustard in the fridge.) So I weight around 95-100 pounds at 5’6″ through most highschool. I weigh about 116 now, and I’m okay with it. Trying to get into better shape, though. I can’t go up a flight of stairs without wheezing like an asthmatic.

@Miss Tattoo: same here!

I was super active in HS and always was the “Chubby” one in the group. But looking back, WHAT WAS I THINKING! I was a little hottie! No wonder Fiance loved me! LOL

Love sure got me “comfy” lol…but since being engaged I’ve worked on my weight and its helped getting back into a better/healthier lifestyle!

wow… i have no idea how all of you maintained a single weight throughout all of highschool.  for me, freshman year, i was a size twelve, blew up to a 14/16 sophomore year, somehow shot down to an 8 junior year, then 10/12 senior year.  with all those hormones and all that competition and off and on season sports, i was just like a yo yo.  

unfortunately, after senior year of highschool, over the course of 10.5 years, i gained about an additional hundred pounds :-  i’ve lost ~85 of that so far, and will hopefully lose another 50 or so to take me back to a size eight.  we’ll see.

HA! If only.

I’ve gained about 40lbs in the ten years since then due to thyroid problems. Trying to lose it, but it doesn’t help that I cant eat whatever I want and stay thin any more.
