My Body Stories Still See My 180 lb Girl
I grew up in a part of the country where being overweight is commonplace. About a year ago, I moved to Los Angeles with big dreams and a bigger waistline than I wanted. I was 183 lbs. For my 5'7" frame it was a little heavier than healthy and working on set was miserable; the long days of lifting were near torture. Don't even get me started on the social pressures of being surrounded by models and actresses everywhere I went. I knew I needed to make a change if I wanted to achieve my career goal.
Skinny As Expected Norm

In high school, I noticed that my thighs touched and my stomach seem to flow over the top of my jeans. The summer before senior year I panicked: "I'm 105 pounds and senior pictures are in 2 months!"

Guess the Weight Quiz Behind the Scenes
My Body Gallery recently launched a new website feature: the “Guess the Weight” quiz. In this game, users can test their capacity to determine body weight from a random selection of images that have been uploaded into the database. A player selects a weight, and then engages in 3 rounds of play. Each round features 5 images, only one of which is the target weight. At the end of the 3 rounds, players get their results and can view the images from all rounds.
