    {sheepish :happy: } I literally starved myself into just-this-side-of-ending-up-in-the-hospital my senior year in high school (which was a looonnnggg time ago) to fit into my custom-made, to-die-for size 3 prom dress. I carted that wretched thing around with me for years, always beating myself over the head with it, vowing I was one day going to be the anorexic little size 3 I once was. To this day, I can't tell you what the exact 'AHA' moment was, but about 7 years ago, I took that dress out of the closet, folded it up, stuck it in the fireplace and cremated it. OK, so my mother never weighed over 90 lbs. in her entire life and was a perfect size 0. OK, so I'll never fit into a size 3 again but I CAN and WILL be a healthy, happy size 'right for me'.........and that's OK :)

    Smart girl!!! :drinker: Yey for you too!!!

    THANKS!!! I love it too...sad that I could only wear it for ONE day!! :( Also sad, that it was one year ago (on Sept 1) and I probably couldn't fit into it...

    Oh and the 90 lbs. was when she was 9 months pregnant with my older brother. She only weighed 85 when she had me 5 years later ;) Believe you me ~ she nneeevvveerrrr accepted the fact that her only daughter wasn't going to be a tiny little pocket princess like her ~ never accepting to the point of talking the doctor into putting me on diet pills at the ripe old age of 8 (this was back in the 60's when prescription diet pills were actually amphetamines with a nightly laxative thrown in just for emphasis), making me wear a girdle, putting me on whatever the next diet was coming down the pike, shaming, blaming ~ you name it, it was tried. I hit puberty way earlier than other girls my age and again, to her terminal chagrin, I took after my father's side of the family in the 'bosum buddy to Dolly Parton' department so here she not only had a fat, slobby daughter, she had a flat, slobby daughter that completely by-passed the training bra stage that she never got out of and zoomed straight to 'pay-premium-'cause-you-ain't-gonna-find-that-size-at-the-local-department-store size' ;) The eat-like-a-horse-and-can't-gain-an-ounce genes all went to my brother who, darn him, at 56, is STILL a bean pole!

    great job! Keep it up and soon that prom dress won't fit it will fall off! Don't let your mom hold you back from celebrating your accomplishment, big or small they are what make you who you are!
