HOW BIG IS BIG.....Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I've dated overweight girls in the past because I used to put personality above everything else, but it just doesn't work for me that way anymore. As a health professional, for me overweight equals unhealthy, a BMI of over 25 for women is too fat and too unhealthy in my professional opinion. No excuses!

I get confused on what is average, slim, curvy.
I use to put curvy, cause I am 5'6" and I weigh about 130, but I am like 36-28-34.
To me that is curvy, not really thin, and not average. But men thought I was fat when I put curvy. So I started putting athletic, which I am really not, I don't think

I think it's more a reflection of how you view yourself really..

Does your percentage of body fat exceed that which is considered healthy for an average adult women? If so, that makes you bigger than average. At 5'9" and 160lbs, I have to believe you're bigger than average by that definition. A former girlfriend of mine was 5'9", 115 lbs, size 6 (14% body fat) and I'd call her build very athletic. Somewhere in between is average and the best guide would be a body fat measurement.

answer is different for every heritage, some people have big bones others dont,average is a relative term, some are taller , some are shorter, i would say being within twenty pounds of your so called healthy weight is average,

HOW BIG IS SKEWED.....

According to the Department for Trade and Industry, the average UK woman is 5' 3.8" (162 centimeters) tall and weighs 147 pounds (66.7 kilograms).
The average Canadian woman's weight is 153 pounds (69.4 kg) and height is 5' 3.4" (161 cm).
The average American woman's weight is 163 pounds (74 kg) and 5' 3.8" (162 cm).

Apparently there's some recent preoccupation with diet and obesity, though, and I wonder how those averages might be skewed.

I'm 5'8", roughly 130 pounds and quite content with that.
My preferred physical activities include rollerblading, mountain biking, skiing and swimming, and I'd love to meet a woman who would enjoy doing some of that with me.

I dont want to be insensitive but we are the fattest nation in history. Do a search on women from ukraine, russia, and many other nations. They are trim, not anorexic, and look healthy; then do a search in the U.S. and U.K. It has nothing to do with looks, but with health. We accept obesity more and more. I travel all over the world and other than England, we are the biggest.

It really depends on the woman. I've seen 200 lb girls who are ~5'5" who are hot as hell; and girls who are the same height/weight who definitely aren't.

Having said that, on occasion I love to go do things like rock climbing/swimming/running. Any girl I date would need to be somewhat able to keep up with me in those activities for me to be interested in her long term.

If you're having trouble walking a few blocks or up a few flights of stairs, you're big. If you have a flab of flesh hanging over your pants you're probably big (or your pants are way too small). If you can't fit in theatre/airplane seats comfortably you're big. If you watch that show "Biggest Loser" and think you can win, you're big. And finally if you think you're big well obviously for you you're big. I'm sure you could find 3 women of identical height and weight and one of them may be what you consider a few extra pounds while another is althetic. A friend of mine has a BMI that's technically obese yet she has less body fat than I do and I'm well within the normal range. She's big boned and very muscular from various sports (weight lifting, swimming, track, soccer etc). There's also that waist to hip ratio to be worried about and something about, along with waist cirumference (sp?).

Yeah. Me, too. ^^^



To the OP, or anyone who's still confused... Post several full body pictures, and it wont matter what you put for body type.

Pfft can't really go according to BMI's

BMI's don't take into account muscle mass

I stand 5'11 and weigh in at 210 and come in at a BMI 30.1 which is obese. I have a 35 in. waist and a 45 in. chest. I work out a lot and that just doesn't include weights but cardio as well.

Now as for women, if they carry it well and have some form of athletic skills, and no not skinny, thats all that would matter

BMI is a load of crap....it hasn't been updated since 1979.

Water displacement test is about the only way to get an accurate body fat. You certainly would not be "obese".
