|Apparently there are 21 body types....who knew right? All perceptions would probably vary if we were to discuss each one. We'd all be arguing right about now. We're all different, don't apply your standards to others.|

This is a powerful video that everyone should watch and question. We live in a male-centered world where sex-appeal and sexual attraction rules everything. I don't doubt that we're bred with it. Inheriting what we learned is part of life. Growing up all my family made jokes about my ass, and I used to hate my thunder thighs. Now I embrace my pear shape. I wear my clothes confidently. The men are still looking and whistling so if that isn't an indication of sexiness, why should I let a number on a tag be the definition of it?
I applaud her for being able to be so fit, confident, and bold. I can identify with her, she's proof that you can have it all. She says "I'm a wife, mother, business owner and nonprofit founder. I dream. I set goals. I plan. I take action. I reflect. And I repeat. Welcome to my World!" If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.
They say a fat bitch can lose weight, but an ugly bitch is shit outta luck. Let's learn to take a good look at ourselves before we judge people. Ya'll can stop being insecure and bashing her now. If you didn't see the coverage on Maria Kang, let me bring you up to speed:
Unnecessary but again... why do these women feel the need to share their excuses? We're not all meant to look like Maria Kang, she's just showing that you can if you really wanted to:
I read that the average woman's size around the world is a 10, sure we don't wanna be a 12-20 # if that was the average so why are we striving for 2's and 4's? Here's some food for thought the next time you want to get upset about the numbers on the tag. Aim for a flat stomach instead:
"According to Stores.org, $28 billion a year of merchandise is returned to stores because of poor fit.
An informal poll on this site shows that 42% never find clothes to fit; 40% only sometimes; 14% said rarely and only 4% said always. But you really don't care about statistics and projections: you already know that it's almost impossible to find great fit.
The real reason is pretty simple: there's no standardization in women's sizes. A U.S. size 4 could be an 8 or a 2 depending on the maker. There is a very basic guideline for fit based on a 60-year-old study done by the US Dept. of Commerce.
Unfortunately, the 2,000 women who were measured for that study were mostly young, unmarried, white women according to Ellen Goldsberry, associate professor with The University of Arizona Division of Retailing and Consumer Studies on the university's web site.That cross-section doesn't begin to touch on the diversity of today's demographics.
Also, this old data is out-of-sync with the way women have increased in size: in 1941 the average woman was 5' 2", 129 pounds. Today she is 5' 4" and weighs 144 lbs (wearing between a 12 and 14).
Another reason clothes never fit is that most sizes are based on the assumption that women's bodies are hourglass in nature. (Ex: A size 8 at the Gap is a 36 bust-28 waist -36 hips.) In reality, the average woman's body is much more a pear shape (smaller on top and heavier through the hips)."Source: about.com
