Q & A

So what’s wrong with a size 10.  On a diet infomercial, a lady says she used to be a 10 and now is a size 0?  Whooppee, I’m fine with 10.

    • Didn’t they refer to Bo Derek once upon a time as a  perfect 10?  Yes they did and it still looks good on me my friend.  Realistically, if I don’t think I look good who will? That’s my story and I’m sticking too it. estatic

    • For many women a size 10 is perfect for their height and bone structure. I can’t be a size 10 and be healthy. I’m under 5‘4” and have a very small frame. I’m currently in a size 8 and I’m very uncomfortable. I feel my healthiest when I’m at a size 4. I’d be curious to know exactly how small this lady is.

    • Yes, it all depends on your bone structure.  I was a size 10 when I was a freshman in highschool.  If I were that size now, I’d be nothing but a skeleton.  

      My bosses mom is a fiesty little 81 yr old lady.  If she were to gain enough weight to be a size 10 she’d be huge and unhealthy.  She’s probably a size 2.

    • Size 10 is a distant memory for me. I am 5‘10” tall so a 12 is the norm, and I’m fine at 14 if I could only tone this gut of mine (I like to eat!).

    • I agree with the bone structure too. I’ve been a size 4/6 and looking back at pictures I look horrible. My bones were sticking out. I am comfortable being right where I am now a size 8/10.happy

    • I wish I was a 10!  I’m 5‘7” and in size 12.  I was an 8 when I got married but that was 30 years ago.  It’s good to have a little weight on you when going through menopause right?!

    • Thanks ladies for your answers.  You are right about the size of your frame.  I felt that some of these diet infomericials make it sound like you have to be a single digit to look good.

      Monica, thanks for summing it up so well!! I also have various sizes, and trying on clothes is a definite must so I will not order from a catalog or on-line. happy

    • I was once a size 10 at 6‘. My frame is small thanks to my mom. Height from my dad.

      I’ll never see 10 again, which is fine. It all depends on you and your frame.

    • 10? There is something wrong with that? I can remember when girls would be thrilled to be a ten! It was a generation of anorexics that followed! Very dangerous.  

      Speaking from the 0 mark, maybe a 3 in some things, I’d be darn grateful to get back to a 10! I don’t choose to be thin, I’m just destined to be, I guess.

      I’m not sure what or when this obsession with being thin started. I don’t think if they are honest that men like a rack of bones either. The famous sex symbols were near plump! Look at Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Then some dummy decided women had to be skinny and young girls put their life in danger to be ‘accepted’ as pretty.

      For you tens and twelves out there, even fourteen if you‘re tall, let it be known that a lot of people struggling to maintain 100 pounds envy the heck out of you! :)) There is nothing attractive about these women who go around like stalks with huge plastic breasts. It’s so abnormal it looks almost like a deformity. I say use healthy eating habits, good sense, moderate exercise and then be what you naturally are! Therein, lies the beauty. Not at the cosmetic counter or the diet fads.

      Obsession with weight can be humorous joke material, but it isn’t funny. Being too thin and depriving your body of nutrients, or even the joy of enjoying a favorite food now and then is as dangerous as being obese. Usually, any extreme is a sign of deeper problems that aren’t being addressed. Just my opinion. I’m not qualified as a spokesperson for health. I’m just a logic nut. :)
