As we all try to get healthier (my focus). I know healthier is smaller. I am never going to be a size 2. Just my 30 something size 12-14 is okay. But what I really want: sexy, pretty clothes. No one seems to do that.

It's not about being a size 2 - I think that's a mistake a lot of women make. They hear about someone's weight loss success and sigh then say, "Well, I'll never be a size 2. I just want to be healthy." It is understood that many of us will not be a "size 2" - but your best size may be a size 12, but it may be a size 8 for instance, you may be surprised. Look at Elaine Griffin in the opening photo. She lost 50 pounds and went from a size 14 to a size 6. Does she look anorexic or overly skinny to you? Not to me. I wouldn't get too tied up in the numbers. Some women really are healthy at size 2 or even 0 - those numbers are from the fashion industry, so they can't help it. Remember, "size 0" is a recent phenomenon.

As for the pretty, sexy clothes in a size 12-14, they are out there. Where are you looking? I agree that they run out faster, but even when that is the case you can always go online.
