    When i started MFP my goal was to just be Normal/Curvy, but after seeing all the inspirational people on here, doing the 30DS and Ripped in 30 or just their own workouts, i think i'd like to be Athletic/muscular.

    Curvy. My breasts won't allow me to be normal by any means but I envy the girls who are normal. No problems with buying shirts that fit the stomach and boobs

    Uh, I think "fat" looks pretty good. I think that's what I have in my mind as a goal. Sad to hear that's what "fat" is supposed to look like though. :/ And who came up with this anyways. That "normal" looks nearly the same as the "skinny" which really should be called MALNOURISHED. Anybody?

    I would like to be inbetween muscular and athletic.
  • AmandaCandycorn
    Mine would be what this posting classifies as "fat".
    In my opinion, that woman is not fat - she is voluptuous, curvy, and bootylicious in the best possible way - plus, she's healthy looking. Definitely my goal.

    Athletic, but with a little more curvy in my hips, God gave them to me for a reason:)

    Somewhere closer to normal than curvy, but I'll go with either of them.

    I'm getting the feeling we all have body issues.

    I'm partial to either "normal" or "curvy". I'm definitely a dead-on for "fat" right now.

    why is "normal" a girl whose ribs are starting to show? and why does it jump straight to morbidly obese? stuff like this just makes me feel there is no hope.

    I have my moms hourglass frame so I'll always be a bit curvy, but I'd like to be kinda muscular as well... I don't particularly like "athletic" body types because they're too damn bony. Right now I'm a mix of curvy/muscular/athletic because I have a tiny waist, wide hips, ridiculously muscular thighs, and no boobs. With diet, exercise..... and a boob job I'll get there tho.
