Where do u carry your weight?

Postby chubbybubby » Sun Sep 17, 2006 9:01 pm

Hey everyone!
I was just thinking about this, after looking at my sister who is about 5 kgs lighter than myself, same height (5'11) and realising how different we look for being so close in kilograms. She carries her weight on her thighs and bum. I have kind of a wierd shape. I have a small bum and toned thighs, (I wear size 14 jeans) I have small boobs, but really big hips and arms. (Size 18 tops) I also still have the baby belly thing going on.... gonna have to do some hip- tummy targeting exercises to get rid of them I think!
It makes me think of the medical point of view.... I think its that weight around the waist is worst for you right?
I might have a look into that and see exactly why that is....
So anyway, where do u carry your weight?

I have a spare tyre around my middle, and rather large thighs.

I have totally bizarro 'chunks' of fat on each side of my hip. Hard to explain but if you can imagine there is a massive mountain of fat, about an an extra 5cm of width on either side of my hips, just a centimeter or two higher up than where my thigh meets my torso. It's such a wierd, unnatural looking weird way of putting on fat! I can't weight to get rid of those

Hips and thighs. Mostly thighs. I'm at a healthy weight for my height, but I just have different proportions to most women, or at least, different to the women they mostly make jeans for :roll:
I have a pair of regular bootcut jeans and a pair of wide leg jeans. The wide leg ones fit me at the hips and bum (tightly) and are skin tight on the legs. The other jeans I got skin tight on the legs, and so I have to wear a belt with them or they will slide down my hips too far. Frustrating.
Also I can't wear boots that come up higher than my ankle, but I think that's just a big calf muscle rather than too much fat.

For me its my bum,hips,tummy x 2 :lol: and my boobs , oh and my arms, and my chin. I guess thats everywhere :lol:

I find that i'm loosing it firstly off my boobs,and my chin which is great, I can breath again at night :D and the cat is no longer at risk of suffocation during the night as he sleeps so close to me.
[no excuses, I can do it!

A lot of my weight is carried... hell its carried everywhere... Then again I don't know half the time what is muscle and what is fat!

I do know that I am size 18 all over so it must be evenually distributed

Mostly carry it on my tummy although the weight I had on was well distributed which is the way it has come off...fairly evenly.

I still have a tummy though and am starting to think I may just have to live with that even as I get to goal weight. It has shrunk heaps though so all hope is not lost. And I am now in the 'low risk' category for the waist to hip ratio thingy :D

Chubbybubby you're right about the tummy being the worst place to carry it health wise. Here is a bit of info.

Pretty much everywhere, but my tummy and boobs are the worst parts.

Mine's all in the middle: belly, hips, back and top of thighs. Luckily the tops of my arms and bum have missed out... unfortunately the boobs missed out too :cry:

My sister is about the same weight as me, but she is stick thin! Not even a hint of fat in sight. Apparently though there is some on her bum and thighs, and a few stretch marks appearing, but I can't see it! :x

I am an "apple", and apparently she is a "pear" (well, if she got some fat then she would be!)

See what I mean, isnt it bizarre how different "overweight" is, that there really isn't one mould, or type of person.... Hhhhmmmm yeah I think I am an apple too. Thanks for that info too KimE, :P
