- Wedding: May 2010 - The Pierre Hotel
Today I had the unique experience of participating in a photoshoot of “real women” for Health magazine. The article is about “Dream Jeans” (coming out in October!) and six other women plus myself had to describe what their dream pair of jeans would be. My dream jeans are ones that fit my thighs! I’ve always had trouble finding jeans that fit my disproprotionately large legs. The ones that do fit are always too long and have a huge gap around the waist. This got me thinking, what would you say is the body area you’re most self-conscious about? Mine would definitely have to be my thighs and my upper arms!

My thighs are problematic as well. It’s not that I don’t like curves, but a little less curve would be nice. It’s hard to find pants that fit well because of my larger hips/thighs and smaller waist. If they fit those tough areas, they don’t fit my waist (I hate it when pants gap), and if they fit my waist, they are WAY too tight in the thighs. Of course these are the last places I loose weight/tone up too! Can’t be easy, right? Congratulations on the photoshoot opportunity! Way to represent real women!

it was a tie between my hips (not butt) and abs, but I would be way happier to lose the belly flab, so that’s what I picked!

Thighs. It’s not the largesse of them, but the hereditary cellulite. Ugh!

ugh. i hate my arms. they are huge (well not really. im certain i have a distorted view of my probably-totally-regular-sized arms). it seems like when i work out, i can get my stomach flatter, my thighs less lumpy and my butt cuter, but i can NEVER get my arms smaller. blurg. i just want to have twigs attached to my shoulders, but i know my body type and that’s not going to happen, but just a little smaller would be nice!

love handles…. i have a smaller waist but just below it, I’d like those to go away!

i am definitely a pear. luckily my hubby likes junk in the trunk. but my thighs require step/spin/camp classes 4-5x/wk.

Love handles, I guess! I don’t so much mind the rest of me, but I wish it was a smooth (inwards!) curve from my butt to my waist. Instead I have a wee ‘second bottom’!
I think my chances of getting rid of it are pretty slim as it was the first place I deposited fat (I had a very active highschool life), and has been there for years. Still might try though… a general tone-up never hurts!

My boobs! I wish they were bigger… I often wish I could fill out cute sexy tops!

Boobs. Too big. That is, my bust measurement is always an inch or two bigger than my hips (doesn’t seem to matter how much I weigh – the proportion stays the same). That is not how the clothing sizes work. Finding anything that fits at the bust and doesn’t totally hang around the waist and hips is really hard. And don’t get me started on bra shopping …

LOL @fontgoddess… you wanna give me some of yours??

Sigh, no matter what I do, I can’t fix my abs or rather my stomach. Worst it’s the lower abs that I seem to have an impossible time with.

I said thighs. I just can’t get them to one up.
@ FontGoddess: I feel you. It hate bra shopping and trying to find a shirt that fits so they don’t fall out!
Everything would fit just right if it weren’t for them. *sigh*

I’m slim, but I dislike my tummy because I know if it was smaller I would have that perfect hourglass shape… instead of being straight up and down. *sigh*
