A 'Sticky' is a thread that lives at the top of a forum (e.g. like the welcome message in the Curvaceous and Corageous forum).

I've been slack in finding some photos. This is the kind of thing that inspires me. This lady is 42 years old and a mother. My aim is to look this good when I am 40 :)

(Hope this doesn't offend anyone!)

hehe don't worry sarah... there are women in lingerie in Vogue magazines and Myer catalogues, people can't be that sensitive :wink:

I think that's a great aim hun, it's even more incredible when the women have had children and still look great!

I just wanted to add that I agree with yummymummy....some of these women are skin and bone! Its not that I disagree with having something to work towards, just that I think if you are hoping to end up looking like giselle bundchen....then maybe you are not being very realistic?? I dont mean to offend anyone, just I dont want anyone to think that their achievements aren't good enough just because they dont look like an airbrushed, sucked in, pushed up hollywood star ;) I LOVE a quote from a few years ago that I read in a mag- 'Even I dont wake up looking like Cindy Crawford'- By Cindy Crawford :) xxxx

I have a vision board up on my wall that I made agess ago...

It has lots of pics of hot women, some in mini's, bikinis,jeans, pics of nice hair, nails etc etc

There are pics on my vision board of women in jeans who are reallllly skinny...but it doesnt mean I want to be that skinny. For me it reflects how GOOD i want to look in a pear of jeans :D

So just cos ppl are posting pics of skinny chicks doesnt mean that apire to look like that...they just want to look as GOOD as that!

Just thought I'd add my spin on things! Love your bodies and make them look as best as they can be! :D :D

I think the appeal of some of these women isn't just their body shape, but the confidence and radiance they exude which comes with knowing you look great :-) I love Adriana Lima mainly for this reason, I've watched several of her interviews and she's such a darling in every way. Regarding some comments some people (not you, hun) have made about people being too thin or aiming for unhealthy weights, maybe we should post heights on our users or something, because a lot of us are quite short in height.

I agree with you gracie, even celebrities have their flaws. Kate i also see where you are coming from and agree that there are different characteristics of different people of all races and body types that are appealing to people. no one should want to be exactly like someone else in life because that is not being the true skin you are in.

that is a good point about height! My goal weight (75-85 kgs) would still seem like quite a lot of weight on a shorter person, although I am 6ft so I am quite slim at that size :) For me to think of 50kgs, it seems TINY but you are right, you have to think of height in relation to the numbers too cos what would be stick person thin on me might be healthy and just right on someone else ;)

I am 165cm and was about 50kg when I was 19 and I didn't look too skinny. But I don't think I would look good at that weight now!

this is me at 19 and about 50kg.
