I have always known that I have a heavy frame. Usually when you tell people that though, they chalk it up to the "I'm big boned" or "it's baby fat" when you had your baby 6 years ago. I go to the doctor and they weigh me. I weigh in at 190 pounds on a 5'6 frame, sometimes more depending on what I am wearing--so of course they look at me like i'm a slob even though I work out hard 4 days a week and don't eat out all the time.


I went in for a body fat analysis. And I am NORMAL! Albeit on the high hide of normal, I am at 29.6%. That also means that I only have roughly 10% body fat to lose, which would be right at 20 pounds to lose before I start seeing definition.

Talk about a magnificent motivator! And to think I have been beating myself up for the number on the scale when all this time I am closer to my goals than I thought!

    That is fantastic. We all have to work out what is right for us. We are all different. Unfortunately, I always thought I was big boned until I realised I am actually medium to small!! So for me it was fat I needed to get rid of and everyone was telling me I was fine as I looked ok but we know ourselves when things just don't feel right! It is great to get that sorted for yourself.

    Yeah, numbers on a scale mean nothing. I weight about 160 at 5'5" and my fat percentage came in at 38%!!!...hmmm. I have some work to do. emoticon

    What is normal for you is what is normal for you and no one else.
