Obtuse much? No one said she should abort. Only that the recovery might be more difficult. But you just go on with your bad self...

I think having some extra weight isn't a bad thing. It's crazy how if a woman has a little gut she's overweight. Has a little cellulite she's unfit for a swimsuit. I'm just ranting, but if everybody stopped worrying about appearance and more about actual health, exercise and eating well balanced, we wouldn't have so many truly obese ppl with health problems. Health isn't synonymous with weight/appearance

Its just a conversation. People can discuss things without expecting a solution. Its opinion sharing.

Interesting thread.

The whole thing is a mess. I know people who have very tiny builds/frames who have to wear clothing from the children's departments due to their small stature who are being told that they are over weight, based on body fat percentage, by their employer. It is ridiculous. Some have to drop pounds to comply or their insurance coverage will be reduced/dropped. Some others have lost mass amounts of weight, look incredibly gaunt, are now feeling bad, and are still being told it is not enough.

You can not gage everyone the same, when it comes to the ever shrinking charts. There are far too many factors, and how you feel personally had to be the most important. That can't be judged by anyone else.

This is nuts! They look to be very similar in size and proportion to me. I guess Robyn is quite a bit taller, so her measurements are probably bigger, but still.

As for Jessica Simpson, congratulations to her and her husband (or is it fiancÚ?). My older son was 9 months old when I got pregnant with my younger son. Having them spaced that close together is difficult but rewarding. I hate to see Jessica's weight scrutinized so closely--it's none of people's business. But that just goes along with being in the public eye.

People tell me I'm too skinny, but according to "the charts" I'm almost overweight. According to that incredibly stupid "you should be 100lbs if you're 5'0 and add 5lbs for every inch over that", I'm practically obese.

I know. I'm about 30lbs overweight. Do you think cutting off both of my arms will do it?

My daughter was a dancer in high school, and the school requested body analysis for their dancers, perhaps because of the tendency to bulimia and anorexia in the performers, or maybe it was just to stress the importance of nutrition.

My daughter was told she was overweight because her 5'4" frames was 140 pounds. Here is her picture.



Stupid conformity rules - they can't take into account that an athlete will weigh more! How could they possibly call this overweight! It took some pretty intensive counseling to convince my daughter she didn't need to start starving herself.

That rule is dumb. I should weigh about 160 based on that rule - I weigh 150, and I think I am thin, but definitely not skinny. I have extra weight and cellulite on my hips and thighs, and more than I would prefer around my waist too (I have an eternal fight with the muffin top)

Everyone carries their weight differently - it's amazing how two people of the same height and weight can look totally different based on build.

I think Jessica is really pretty normal, but has yoyoed up and down a good bit back and forth between crazy skinny and her natural weight.

Yes they do. Robyn is a few inches taller but based on appearance/proportions/builds, they balance out. It is insane that RL is considered plus size.

They are absurd. During different points in my life have weighed more and less than I do now. I felt horrible when I was under weight and did not like my appearance. Thats probably because I had been sick, couldn't help or avoid it, but did not choose to look malnourished. I felt slow, and exhausted when I put on weight, but I was always told I dis not look as heavy as I was. I carry weight differently, and have a medium build. Anywho, I listened to myself and got back to the weight that always made me feel my best. I hardly weigh myself anymore. I don't need to.

Your daughter is so pretty! And yea they told me the same thing when I was in highschool. I was 140 at 5'0 but I'm thick with lots of booty and thighs. My stomach was almost completely flat. I think that's when I started questioning my weight. And comparing myself to other people.

Has this pregnancy been confirmed even? Media loves to drum up crap with the celebrities. Just look how often its reported that Kate ( Middleton) is in the news/ tabloids on pregnancy rumors. If she is, then I wish her and her family well.

Everyone does carry weight differently and appearances can be very deceiving.

Jessica isn't that tall, which by itself tends to make any weight gain apparent more quickly, but she's also large breasted and looks fairly short-waisted, so any weight gain is going to make her look heavier than someone with smaller breasts and/or a bit longer torso might look.
