Some links people might like:
My body gallery lets you input your height and weight and it shows you the real shape of other women who share your statistics. Here's a similar idea, in a lookup table (that one has men and women).

How interesting. I got precisely one match, and yes, same figure as mine.
In the metafilter discussion several women said that they hadn't a clear idea of how body appearance correlates with body size:
"the utility of sites like this is for people (especially young girls who beat themselves up and young guys who live in a fantasy world) who get hung up on "stats" and what a for-profit company decrees as their ideal weight. It's rare to get an honest, factual information about what real people look like at different combinations of height and weight."
I'm afraid my reaction was "Oh dear, do I really look like that?"
I couldn't find an exact match, but going up a couple of inches and 5 pounds gave a very good match.
I will match myself to this lady
, she's a bit shorter than me, and a lot prettier, but smiley and I like her.

Sweet, all my broads are smashing albeit Hollywood would be horrified and advise more cocaine stat. :-D
Yes, I guess that's how they do it
Shivering Trunks made me aww. Awww. And the people playing bluegrass seemed to be having such fun with it and in their playing together that it made it a pleasure to watch. Thanks for the links.
I was rather surprised by the matches for my weight and height as they mostly linked to people that I would perceive as being a lot slimmer than I think of myself. Some of it was due to the pictures on the second site being of people who have more hourglassy figures than mine, although I recognised aspects of bodies matching mine, e.g. inner thighs. I did find one match that I thought wasn't too bad on the first site, but when I put in other combinations, since I'm in between the options given for both weight and height, the site didn't return any results for the combination. But it's very interesting.
It's interesting anyway. I was pleasantly surprised by mine, and it also gave me a realistic weight loss goal. ie even losing a fraction of what 'they' recommend would make me feel better about myself.
