I look good. I eat perfectly. I don't touch sugar, I don't eat meat or milk products. I eat endless organic fruits and veggies, fish and other super healthy things. I do about 45 minutes of cardio a day and weight training three times a week. I barely drink.
The why oh why do I sometimes see a woman at the gym who looks bigger (as in fatter)than me, who weighs less?
I wear a small size (about a 4) but weigh about 137 lbs at 5 foot 6.
I know that this is fine and average but I work so hard that I want to look a little better than average. I am very healthy and am youngish(36). I have not had children.
My measurements are chest 35", waist 27" and hips 36". Are these decent measurements? Should I not weight less? Why does a woman who looks bigger than me weigh ten pounds less than me?
I am irritated as no matter what I do, I never seem to gain or loose, I stay at almost exactly the same weight even when I throw in a few extra workouts or try dancing or whatever.
I am so frustrated as this makes me think, what's the point!? I will never look the way I want to.
I read an article at the gym (of all places) about an actress who weighs 131 lbs at my height(5 6") who thinks that this is too heavy and wants to be 115 lbs. So I am not the only one who is unhappy with a "reasonable weight".
Please advise me.
