I'm mister White Christmas
I'm mister snow
I'm mister icicle
I'm mister 10 below
Friends call me snow miser
whatever I touch
turns to snow in my clutch
I'm too much
I never want to know a day that's over 40 degrees
I rather have it 30, 20, 5 and have it freeze
I'm mister Green Christmas
I'm mister sun
I'm mister heat blister
I'm mister 101
Friends call me heat miser
whatever I touch
starts to melt in my clutch
I'm too much
I never want to know a day that's under 60 degrees
I rather have 80, 90, 100 degrees!

* Write everything I eat in my food journal
* Get to my 10% weight loss goal
* Exercise at least 5 times per week for min 30 min
* Eat all my daily points
Fat %: 48.9
Water %: 40.8
Muscle Mass %: 28.7
Calories needed daily to maintain: 1661
Normal healthy range
Fat 22-32% (whoa)
Water 50% (clearly not getting enough water)
Weight 110-140 ish (huh)
BMI 18.6 - 24.9 (oh my)
I'm not really sure how the scale gets all this information from my feet. I would think it would be based on age height and weight and then just making a guess but it does change even when the weight is the same.

Now it is no secret that the sizing of clothes has changed over the years. And as frustrating as it is not knowing what size you are going to be from store to store, here is the reason why: vanity sizing. Americans are willing to pay more for a smaller size on our clothes. We like the smaller size in the closet so we can say, "yeah, I'm a size 4". This vanity sizing phenomenon has certainly contributed to the ever growing American population...and I don't mean the number of people. Americans are getting fatter and the vanity sizing from clothing companies are enabling us. Here is an interesting article in the Seattle Times.
So what is your true size? To really know what your true size is, you should go to European clothing companies such as Boden or H&M or sewing patterns. The pattern companies are still using the commercial sizing standards that the Department of Commerce regulated up until 1983. It seems once again, America has their own way of doing things.
Another helpful site for clothing conversions.
