    The last time I think I was within my healthy BMI I was probably my unhealthiest. I partied really hard, smoked a lot of cigarettes and lived off scraps basically because I spent all my money on clothes. That was before I got pregnant and I was 65kg. When I stopped partying, smoking and started eating food I was about 112kg after I had my first.

    When my daughter was one I started a shake diet and within 6 months had dropped to about I think 69kg. I was wearing size 10 all over like I was when I was pre baby even size 10 pants. I had developed a pretty intense eating disorder by the time I was pregnant with my second and was exercising 2 hours daily and eating 800 calories a day up until I started endangering my unborn child's life. I quit gym and started eating and was at about 80kg after I had him.

    I then had another child and after him went up to about 115kg and I was absolutely miserable. All my injuries flared up, I struggled with minor tasks and so I started training and eating well again last year. I dropped down to 76kg but now am hovering around 80 give or take. I do a lot of heavy weight training and for the first time in my life I have some sort of curves but my body is completely different.

    I accept my body now is pretty close to how I'm naturally built and while I don't fit into BMI and am considered overweight I no longer chase that as an ideal. I think I am the fittest, healthiest and my body is in the best shape at this weight even though I'm considered over weight.

    Thanks

    I had gastric sleeve surgery and did a lot of personal training to help try and avoid loose skin.

    I could still drop another size... But the last bit is a stubborn phucker

    Tops - 8 to 10

    I put a couple of kilos on over the last few months. I feel most comfortable when I'm about 50-52kgs, but according to the calculator that put me in the underweight category. I disagree though.

    I'm the exact same as you. I'm trying to get down to 50kg currently as I always was happy with my weight when I was there.

    I'm 166cm and 63kg so a bmi of 22.5 and I wear anything from a size 8-12.

    Before I lost weight I was 70kg plus and between a size 10-14. at 70kg I has a bmi of 25.4, so just overweight according to bmi, but I was most definitely an unhealthy weight for me. I could definitely do with being a bit healthier now, but I don't want to lose any more weight (a girl's gotta have SOME hips and boob!) so am actively trying to maintain.

    Bugger I hit send before posting a pic, and now it won't let me add one.

    After seeing this I need to reiterate that you could wear tights as pants and no one would judge you on your body... Fashion sense maybe but you know I wouldn't because you know how much I love tights as pants haha. You look so amazing!

    Thanks ^_^ i think the dress is decieving but i am still a 14-16 pants because i am quite a pear shape. I would hafto lose so much just to be a 12. Let a lone a 10! It will never happen but im just trying to focus on eating everything in moderation, exercising a healthy amount and getting rid of those hideous 'guilty' thoughts if i have a piece of bread! I dont want to be consumed by 'results' anymore... Because its incredibly hard to lose now and i hafto accept that this size might be it for me. Obsessing sends me crazy and my family suffer for it.

    You all look so beautiful girls! Killer bods! Next time around i better come back as someone with small legs *shakes fists*

    Apologies for the bad pic, I am notoriously bad at selfies.

    I am 167 cm and 64 kgs which gives me a BMI of 22.9. Size 10-12. I'd like to gain a little.

    ETA sorry for upside down pic - that was bubhub, not me!!!

    Some of these replies are ringing warning bells for me. Please folks lets not start becoming pro-Ana or encouraging low BMIs
