Being a girl comes with constant comparing yourself to other people, which is extremely tough. At times I think to myself why do some girls look skinnier than me and we wear the same size? Do you ever wonder why sometimes we all may wear the same size or weigh the same and look completely different?
Weight is distributed differently amongst individuals. For example, these women both weigh 165 lbs but they each carry the weight differently. The first lady is muscular in her midsection and the second lady carries her weight in her breast. According to this article, muscle and fat have the exact same weight, but muscle is denser, which makes it appear heavier. Quite often are people considered overweight because of the amount of muscle they have.
Even with the same Body Mass Index or BMI for short women can look completely different. BMI is a person’s weight divided by their height. Sometimes people determine certain health issued from a high BMI. However a person’s BMI cannot be the determining factor in someone’s health because two people could share the same one and have different concerns. So remember be happy with how your weight looks on YOU!
