Thanks Alb for your excellent post. You are so right about women and their body images (when they are thin they still think they need to lose 10 or 15 pounds). I have been in unhealthy weight of 105 lbs to very high weight 190 lbs. At the low end, when I was a teen, I thought 115 was big and in my 20's weighed 105 to 110. Even then, I still thought I was big when compared to some women I saw in public -I don't know how they ever get that thin. Now I still don't have any idea just how much I need to weigh 120, 130, 140? I am just going to go with how I feel and definitely working on getting to around 130 though (I am close). Still realize that it's a fine line between fasting and anorexia. More men like you Alb, need to tell women that they NEED some fat on them and not be a bonerack. I am not trying to impress a man though, just myself. Oh and to stop my kids and mom from calling me "fat".
