Guessing Game

Apropos of a great post by Sweet Machine over at my place, my friend The Rotund has issued a challenge to the internet: guess her height and weight.

Nobody's got it right yet, so I wanted to see what Shakers have to say. The culture would have us believe that 200 lbs. is -- as Joy Nash puts it -- breathtaking, 350 lbs. is virtually immobile, and any woman over 150 is a cow, full stop. And as Sweet Machine points out, since so many of us lie about our weights, we have no idea what X lbs. actually looks like.

So what do you think? Just how Rotund is the Rotund?

She and I will both post the answer tomorrow.
