62%?!?!! What?!?!!? That is just sad...I'd be interested to see the ages of the women polled. Maybe I would have said yes in my teens and 20s but not now. Also, there are such great bras now that you can really fake it in clothes! You can't fake IQ, IMO.
Steph - are you trying to lose weight now? That was one of the toughest things I ever faced - and that was before kids. I'd have to say "yes" to a little less smarts to make that 15 year time period easier...
Sarah - was that you looking for good bras? Did you find one?
As a teen, I'm almost surprised you didn't try it. Being an attorney's daughter, you better believe they wouldn't have botched you up though!
We were in a corp suite at Keeneland on Saturday and there was one girl that had the most amazing figure. She weighed maybe 110. Perfect subtle curves everywhere. It was classy, IMO. Definitely no Miracle Bra; made me wonder if 'boobs' are in or out right now?
Nope - maybe a reduction, ha ha ha! But actually no to any body change if I have to sacrifice IQ. I hate that I am struggling with weight right now, and 50 lbs needs to go for my health and happiness, but I like who I am intellectually. Now if I had a heart condition or diabetes ... maybe. Wow, this has just brought home how I HAVE to get serious about getting fit I lost 24 lbs in 2010 (on Weight watchers) , and gained almost all of it back the following year.
Yep that was me. I found some playtex bra's that are working well. It is amazing how much better you feel with a well fitting bra.
I have lost 15 lbs in the last month. I would like to lose at least 60 lbs more. I know what caused the weight gain. I'm working on correcting it but it is hard. I didn't gain all the weight over night and I'm not going to lose it all over night.
In reality though I'm happy with myself. With hard work and lifestyle changes I know I can make permanent changes with out loosing any IQ points.
Me 33, DD - O 12, DS1 -J 7, DS2 - Cr 6, DS3 - Co 4, DD2 - E (11/10)
I am in the same boat as most of you ladies- I am about a size 44D, now since pg I am a 44DD. So no way would I want them bigger! I would consider giving up a few IQ points to lose weight, but my IQ has helped me more in my life than being fat has held me back, so not so sure...would be nice though!
Add me to the list of big boobed women who need to lose 20 lbs! But I like my brain more than I dislike my fat, so I'm not trading. I keep hoping that since I'm smart enough to know that being overweight is bad for you, eventually I will get it together and get the weight off. I have been dieting since January and intally i was doing great- I lost about 10 lbs, but in the last 4 weeks- I have lost nothing, and frankly the way I've been eating, I am lucky to not have gained any of it back ( apparently exercising does help! )
I just wish women could love themselves as they are and that the media would stop promoting insecurity. Where is the poll on what physical gift men would trade IQ for???
Well some of you may remember my post of actually wanting breast!! Well my breast don't bring home the money but my IQ does. Career or boobs??? I choose career and the choice to help provide for my family.
