Body image or “Antonia swedish love affair weight”

One of the by far most frequent internal searches on Swedish Love Affair is antonia weight. I also get a lot of anonymous questions about it and even emails!

I’ve always thought it very inappropriate to ask a lady about her weight (and, of course, her age – but I’m not quite there yet), but it seems like many of my readers are dying to find out the truth, so I thought I’d say it once and for all.
So here you have it, my weight is 48-49 kg (105-108 pounds). For reference, I’m 161 cm tall:) (5ft3″)

    Do you have a workout/diet to stay at that weight?

    I have to admit, I have been wondering about this.. :) I might even have searched for it, so thanks for the info!
    Nice picture, makes me long for summer already! :)

    I’m quite surprised that people should wonder about it. I did notice that you are really slim, but my thoughts went no further than that.
    I don’t think i would have put my weight online, because personally i don’t see what other people have to do with it. It doesn’t say anything about you or your blog.

      I completely agree with Chiara!

      • Antonia says:

        Thank you, Raffaella! I was actually surprised too, when I saw how many people wonder about it! Personally, I’m not wondering about anyone’s weight, but I guess these things are different for everyone:)

    • Antonia says:

      I know, Chiara!! Thank you for your support! Most people seem to agree with you, too. That’s how I felt too, but then I thought it’s not like it’s a big secret anyway! And, you know, when I see how many people wonder about it, then I feel I might as well let them know. I’ve already got emails from many grateful readers after this post, although I don’t know how they can use this information:)))
      Of course, I wouldn’t reveal anything I’m not completely comfortable with.

    I agree with Chiara too. I noticed you were young and slim but would never have asked for those details. Instead I wonder about other details in your life so I will ask you that! I’ve never traveled much so I like to read travel blogs and the blogs of people who live in other countries. I keep reading about the long dark winter days in Sweden. I am wondering if those days bother you? Your blog is so well written and upbeat (yours is the first one I read each day) that I am curious to know if what I’ve read is true and if you have problems adjusting to the dark days?

    I have been wondering (and even asked you) about this. You are in great shape, but I already knew that of course! Thanks for the info :)

  6. Annelien says:

    Wow, that’s kinda weird.. sending an E-mail with a question like that. But, if anyone wants to know: I weight about 10kg more than Antonia and I’m 2 cm shorter. Now you’re not the only one ‘showing the naked truth’ haha. And by the way: you’re a very pretty lady :)

  7. Amanda says:

    Well, I’m not surprised. of course people will be interested in knowing things such as your weight, your workout scheme, your diet etc. I myself have wondered about these thing ever since I started following your blog, and I even asked about it several times, only to be ignored.. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity at last :) :) :)
    I weigh 62 kilos!

    I never even thought of it!
    It just goes to show how weight-obsessed our society has become – you look a good healthy weight and that is all that matters.

  9. Leia says:

    Haha, how strange! No one has ever asked me this question. And I don’t think I would share my answer online, either! :P
