Saw this on yahoo

Apparently she is an American size four.  I think she looks great.  She looks more like a size six to me, which is also a great size to be.

The news article goes on to say that she is still not “normal”–size twelve is average.  Well, it doesn’t say that many American women are overweight nowadays, so that brings up the average.   At size twelve, I feel like I could lose a few pounds.  I’d like to get down to a size ten.  I’d love a size eight, but don’t see that anytime soon.

For the past month, I’ve been walking daily and watching what  I eat, but the weight is dropping extremely slowly.  My motivation is to look better in clothes—and let’s face it—to be able to buy cute clothes in Japan.  I still think that Japanese fashion makers/sellers have ridiculously high standards.   Yes, Japanese women on average are slender–but there are PLENTY who are my size or larger.  We need cute clothes, too!

I’ll leave you with photos of food……
