You know how magazines recommend clothes based on your body shape? Like, "this dress will look great on a pear shaped body." Or, "these pants are perfect to minimize your tummy if you are apple shaped."

I decided to do body measurements like some of my fellow competitors/weight-loss buddies. And I discovered my body shape isn't really apple, or pear...

It appears I am a cylinder.  My chest and waist are exactly the same. My hips are 2 inches bigger.
No wonder clothes look so bad on me! ;)

Bonus points for anyone who can name the song that inspired my title.


  1. Baby Got Back?

    Glad you took your measurements, it will give you a point of reference to see how far you've come.


  2. Is the song:

    "Brick House" sung by the Commodores in the 1970's

    So any songs about a cylinder kidding, soon u will not have that any more!

    take care and u are doing well!


  3. That is interesting! I would be more of an apple I guess. I am extremely top heavy so that really throws my clothing fit off.

    I am so glad that we are all being able to do this together.

  4. Maria wins! "36 24 36? Only if she's Five three!" Or something like that! :)
    Thanks Joyce!!
    Hey Mindy! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  5. Hey Steph, I guess my answer was old

  6. Hey Steph!! Taking your measurements is tough, but way to go! I'm having my DH do that for me tonight. We'll see how it goes....

  7. ....."You can do side bends or sit ups, but please don't lose that butt". I like to think of this song because it makes me feel better about my pear shape.

  8. Yay!! What do I win?!?! Oh, wait a second, I'm not here to win anything, you guys are!!
