Nothing deep rooted from my childhood about skinny, I am Korean though and my mom is a whip so appearance has always been important. 

The skinny factor - I've always been skinnier never big (when I was prego, omg not cute) but when I was 30ish, I decided that I wanted to loose 8 lbs for a girls vaca.  I did it and I never went back.  I feel and look best here.  I don't think I would ever know the impact unless I didn't go through it. Therefore, I highly recommend it.  

Also, it's really how I'm built.  For example - my daughter was a B+ student, I was like what's the point - 7 more hours of study and be an A student.  She did it, graduated with a 4.0

Be your best you. X
