I didn't know where to post this, but I thought here would be most apt.
I read an article on sparkpeople about body types. Here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_articles.asp?id=1042&page=3.
According to this, I'm an endomorph. Also, according to this article, one cannot 'switch' from one body type to another even if we lose weight.
But, I'm also confused.
One of my favorite actresses, was an actress I grew up with, Bethany Joy Lenz of One Tree Hill. I started watching the show when I was 13 and grew up with it (I'm 22 now.).
Bethany in the first season of one tree hill, seemed a lot shorter in body type. I'm assuming she's been the same height for the past ten years considering she was already 22 when she did the first season, and usually around that time you stop growing in height.
But...in current pictures, after one tree hill, her limbs look much longer. Her arms and her legs. And she looks slimmer than she was when she was 22. She wasn't fat at 22. She just seemed curvier, for lack of a better term.
So, I guess what I'm asking is, how is it possible that she could go from stocky/shorter to longer limbs and slim?
I know part of it is probably the clothes she wore, because they tried to dress her down during season one, but I think part of it had to do with her own body.
Here are before and after pics:

P..S: Bethany had a baby at 30. Oh and I'm female if anyone's confused by my unisex name.
