itsallgrand Posted August 8, 2006 Share Posted August 8, 2006 You know, I think the medical charts and BMI are great for getting an idea of about the range we should be in. ..but, clearly we are all naturally a bit different. It's just a general indicator. For example, Sheyda is 5'2, as am I. She says she is between 98-105 pounds and feels great. I don't doubt her - maybe she is naturally more slender or small framed. But, me at 98 pds and 5'2 would be sickly. I've got a naturally 'bulkier' build - mesomorph I guess - and build muscle at a blink of the eye. So I weight more, around 115 lbs right now, and I think I'm just right here. I get what you saying, Teddy. Our bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and it can hurt - even though is seems to be the natural knee-jerk response - to compare others against ourselves or certain body shapes. No point using words that can offend, once you become aware of it. Quote Link to comment
