    Was down around 115 once upon a time. However, on the subsequent journey up to 235, it's safe to say I wasn't wearing the same clothes.

    Oh where to begin on the dairy industry...

    Cows are kept pregnant so that they lactate, but not all year long. They have a ~3 month "dry off" period where the udder dries up. This is a natural, and good, process that needs to happen for udder health. Once the calf is born it is raised away from its mother so most the milk can be used for human consumption.

    Cows are either herded into the milking parlour or, in some dairies, willingly enter the milking parlour. The milking machines are cleaned before/after each cow, so there's no cross-contamination. In addition, each cow has her teats cleaned before she is milked. The milking device goes onto the udders, they are milked approximately 20 minutes. Then the teats are "dipped" and the machine is cleaned. Teat-dipping is where they teats are literally dipped in an iodine solution and sealed with a waxy substance (the iodine is much like a surgical scrub, not harmful, it's just a cleaning agent). This keeps bacteria from entering up into the udder and creating an infection. You see, cows are not clean animals so they run around and their udders are big, so they tend to get crap all over them. The teat dip and wax help keep the whole udder free of infection.

    Usually cows are milked about twice a day. So, 40 minutes of milking. The ladies on the dairy that enter the milking parlour voluntarily sometimes get milked much more often than that. Depending on how much milk the cow produces, it can get quite heavy, and build up a lot of pressure. Being milked releases that pressure and it's more comfortable for the cow.

    Now, this is not to say that cows never get mastitis (infection in the udder). There is a process of testing the milk that comes straight from the udder. It's pretty simple to do, and if there's a certain amount of white blood cells (pus), then that milk gets thrown out and the cow goes on antibiotics until the milk is not only free from those cells, but the antibiotics as well. I should say that some white blood cells are normal, excessive amounts are not. On organic dairies, these cows are not allowed to get antibiotics. A lot of organic dairies also have more traditional dairies, so that when these cows do get an infection they can receive the antibiotics they need to be treated. The only difference is that this cow is no longer an organic cow. She's traditional.

    Also, each milk truck (looks like a gasoline truck) has to get that "batch" of milk tested before it can be bottled. Again, if the cell count is too high, it gets tossed.

    I'm sure this is more dairy info than most people want to know about, but if you're curious at all about any other stuff, PM me and I can either answer or provide you some good resources

    Cows are kept pregnant so that they lactate, but not all year long. They have a ~3 month "dry off" period where the udder dries up. This is a natural, and good, process that needs to happen for udder health. Once the calf is born it is raised away from its mother so most the milk can be used for human consumption.

    Cows are either herded into the milking parlour or, in some dairies, willingly enter the milking parlour. The milking machines are cleaned before/after each cow, so there's no cross-contamination. In addition, each cow has her teats cleaned before she is milked. The milking device goes onto the udders, they are milked approximately 20 minutes. Then the teats are "dipped" and the machine is cleaned. Teat-dipping is where they teats are literally dipped in an iodine solution and sealed with a waxy substance (the iodine is much like a surgical scrub, not harmful, it's just a cleaning agent). This keeps bacteria from entering up into the udder and creating an infection. You see, cows are not clean animals so they run around and their udders are big, so they tend to get crap all over them. The teat dip and wax help keep the whole udder free of infection.

    Usually cows are milked about twice a day. So, 40 minutes of milking. The ladies on the dairy that enter the milking parlour voluntarily sometimes get milked much more often than that. Depending on how much milk the cow produces, it can get quite heavy, and build up a lot of pressure. Being milked releases that pressure and it's more comfortable for the cow.

    Now, this is not to say that cows never get mastitis (infection in the udder). There is a process of testing the milk that comes straight from the udder. It's pretty simple to do, and if there's a certain amount of white blood cells (pus), then that milk gets thrown out and the cow goes on antibiotics until the milk is not only free from those cells, but the antibiotics as well. I should say that some white blood cells are normal, excessive amounts are not. On organic dairies, these cows are not allowed to get antibiotics. A lot of organic dairies also have more traditional dairies, so that when these cows do get an infection they can receive the antibiotics they need to be treated. The only difference is that this cow is no longer an organic cow. She's traditional.

    Also, each milk truck (looks like a gasoline truck) has to get that "batch" of milk tested before it can be bottled. Again, if the cell count is too high, it gets tossed.

    I'm sure this is more dairy info than most people want to know about, but if you're curious at all about any other stuff, PM me and I can either answer or provide you some good resources
    Did you really just write a novel about cows

This site has helped a lot in doing that, though. ). All I want now is for the inner thighs to tighten up and I can fit in my old jeans again, which I'm doing the harder way (aka muscle gaining).

    I weighted 106 pounds without dieting, that's just how I was. In my 20's my weight fluctuated between 110 to 115 pounds. I was still squishy though, even at these low weights. I am definitely much better where I am now weight wise. I'm actually the smallest dress size I've ever been and I think my BF% is probably the lowest it's been too. I'm actually happy to weight more now... I want some more definition!

    I want to buy new jeggings.

    But I'm in the middle of cutting.

    But my favourite dark blue pair have been abused to the point that the back pocket is falling off.

    Definitely. I went up to 120, then down to 116 (current), and I know a substantial portion of it is muscle (also, got my breastages back, yay). I was 104 at my very lowest, but I have more definition now, whilst pseudo-bulking, than I did then. Now is better, no question.
    So, it turns out you can't kill a tumor with vodka...

    There were my favourite. Thick but really stretchy.

    Couldn't find them .

    Bought a black/white striped peplum dress instead.
