I've been told I was beautiful by many people, but I've also struggled with eating disorders. I'm in the middle of a very difficult divorce and I just turned 27. I've been with my husband since I was 20 and the 20-year-olds tend to have a bit of a different beauty ideal.
I've been walking about 25 miles a week for several weeks now. My scale barely started to budge and it's not moving anymore right now. I have Portuguese and Spanish blood on both sides of my family and I carry more of the Portuguese features as far as body composition goes. I'm 5'4". I don't need anyone to tell me what a BMI chart says about me because I know. My clothes fit better and people do notice.
So at this point I'm at bust: 37" (36D), waist: 31", and hips: 41". I know even at my smallest (127 lbs) I looked very small and had bones poking from places I didn't know existed. I also know that even then my waist may have reached 29", but it was probably 30". What do you think gentlemen? And I do mean gentlemen.
