Barbie, how many wish Barbie were more realistic looking?

How many wish Barbie had real curves like a real woman? I need to lose weight right now - a lot after a difficult pregnancy and also after being married and having a husband whose the food devil! Yet, even before when I excercised a lot - I was strong not scrawny. I looked nowhere like a guy but I didn't have stick legs. I had a small waist but not a tiny 18inch waist. My body fat was very low, yet I wasn't a size 0 - heck I wasn't even a size eight!

well, for me i never really thought much about barbie. in all my years of playing with barbies, i never found myself thinking that my body should look like that. i need to lose weight too. i just gave birth to our third child, so as soon as i'm cleared to exercise, i'm diet bound. i'm not shooting to be super skinny. i just want to be in my healthy weight range and be in better shape to play with my kids.

I hope its a healthy, balanced diet! I'm nursing so actually have to have more calories then less...its healthy to lose about a half a pound to a pound when nursing. I've lost 30 lbs but have more to go.
