  • Not only are Americans getting fatter, we're getting bigger and taller, and our feet are keeping pace.
  • The average U.S. male stands 5' 9.1 tall and weighs 180 pounds.

Hmmmmm I'm with you ShOeDIVA. I don't care HOW much anyone wants to proclaim Pam Anderson- sized boobs as wonderful, I'll keep my own average sized boobs. I don't trip over them, I can see my feet, folks usually talk to my face and not to my breasts, I can run across the street without having to hold my boobs or tie them down with anything but a basic bra, all the cute bras are in my size, I have NO back pain, and if I need to float, I'll get a raft. Average sized boobs are sexy, firm, attentive, and portable. 34-36 b-c's are a nice, pleasant handful if you ask me! 1/2 the world's population seem to like them just fine. Hah.

LOL ... see? You are in-style and you didn't even know it. Others have to wear padded underwear and you, my dear, have the true curves! Heh heh.
I do get tired of media and societal sources telling us that our bodies are not okay. Racquel Welch had two ribs removed to have a smaller waist ... woah! I can understand the desire to be attractive, I really do!! However, some of this kinda saddens me too. I am glad that my husband is happy with my looks, although.. LOL he loves HUGE boobs. Too bad! Hahah.

LOL about husbands and big boobs. My darling likes mine just fine, though I think he does like the growth they've been through on the evil pill from last year. I used to be a 36A, (really, I was an A 1/2, but they don't make those), and A was too small for me, but B was too large in the top part of my breasts. Now I'm a B, getting closer to a C, and I miss being an A. LOL!!!

I just don't remember having much soreness at all when I was an A; now I'm sore all the time! The bounce when I jog, uncomfy; they ache 90% of the time. I could live without the pain, you know?

They hurt?! You really need to go to the doc! Please do!! And if you've gone to the doctor already, I'd get a new one.

That's why I like the IUD .. none of that extra nonsense goes with it. It's there and you forget about it. Some women get heavy periods with it though. I barely have any periods. Sorry if TMI, only trying to help.

LOL about TMI - doesn't bother me. I looked into IUDs, but I really don't want to bother with any more birth control issues with hormones or inserts or whatnot...not for now, at least, since we're considering having a baby in the near future.

Well, they don't really *hurt* but they're sore quite a lot. And it's only been since they doubled. I'm hoping that I'll lose some weight up there, because that's the first place I gain and lose.

The right side has panging aches once in a while, but that's common with cysts and fibroids, like they're suspecting this lump is. My mother-in-law and a lady at church have the same thing, and they said there are Vitamins that are good, to help ease the aches. But it's normal.

I'm trying to get an appointment at the hospital for an ultrasound, but waiting on a day when my hubby can come along with me. It's kind of a hard thing to plan ahead, with the hospital, because I could call the doctor today, and they could get me in today, but I want a day when he can go with me. So, I need to find few consecutive days when he's going to be working in the local office and can come with me. But it's all good - I'm probably dramatizing it more. Let's just say that for someone who lived 24 years of her life as a 34-36A, and was happy, the B-cup takes some getting used to.

The birth control pill literally almost killed me (Yasmin, that is), and I won't go anywhere near estrogen hormones anymore! Doctors claim we need all this estrogen, but it's a lie - we need more progesteron (sp?).

Anyway, bc works for some, not for others. Apparently Yasmin is the big evil out there, according to a site that helped me verify that I was not alone in my extreme symptoms. That many women cannot be wrong, when their doctors are telling them, "It's not the pill - it's you!"
