Calf-size survey – preliminary results

Measuring time

First, I want to thank everyone who entered my calf-size survey. Of the 157 entries I received (you all are awesome, btw), I picked the 6 winners—I realized I didn’t ask for anyone’s names so please check your email to see if you’ve won!

I’ll be crunching the numbers in the coming days, but there’s still time to contribute if you’d like. Click here if you’d like to submit.

But here are the preliminary results: we’re all waaaaaay too self-critical!

Seriously, though! I got so many submissions with little disclaimers attached about how their calf circumference or weight were either too big or too small. One person made sure to let me know their submission wasn’t a typo, it was just “abnormally large” (they were actually exactly average, based on my data), and others added little comments of same nature. LADIES, LISTEN UP: we need to stop obsessing over our body shapes. They’re all different, and they’re all valid.

Look, I’m just as guilty. I’ve wasted so much time (likely years of my life) fretting that my size and shape weren’t good enough. I still feel that way sometimes. But I’m trying to break myself of it, and you should, too.

Okay, enough preaching (to the choir, I’m sure). I’ll be back in a bit with some real data to share with y’all. Thanks SO MUCH for submitting—you’re all rock stars!
