    The thing is all my suits are hanging on cedar wood hangers. And a tailor told me to put newpapers in my closet to keep the bugs away.
    I will be so freaking ticked if there are holes in my suits. Arg!

    Oh, I wish! I'm 6'0 and weigh 150 lbs. I want to lose at least 35.

    By the way, it's around 25 pieces. I'm really excited about the project. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Then it's shoes, suits, then odd jackets. I have odd jackets last because I'll wear them the most.

    You want to lose 35 lbs? Are you insane?

    I'm 5'9" and 155, and I'd be rail thin at 115. It'd be even worse if you (Kira) were 6'.

    Gentlemen! My OP was correct. I'm not trolling either. A large % of my weight is in my quadriceps and glutes-- called "subcutaneous fat".

    I just realized that I did a subtraction fail - 35 pounds off me would be 120. [​IMG] That aside, it's pretty normal to have "subcutaneous fat" in the glutes. There's just no way you can be considered remotely overweight, much less "fat," if you're 6' and 150 pounds.

    I'm 5'10 and I used to weigh 135-142 when I bike raced. I was rail thin then too. 115 is not a weight anyone 6 feet tall should aspire to be. You have got to be kidding me.

    A picnic attack seems appropriate right about now.

    6 ft 115lbs! Anorexic? Famished?

    That can't be healthy right?

    You called it. I just went down to the office cafeteria and chewed down on a piece of brownie and a choco cookie!
