Or there about. It depends on the time of day and what I'm wearing when I step on the scales.
(And no I don't have a problem telling people my weight. OBVIOUSLY. It is just a number. It doesn't define who I am.)
But let's say someone was describing me to you and they told you I weighed 236 pounds how big would you imagine me to be?
Take a look at this info-graphic talking about the shrinking size of airline seats and the growing size of (I'm ASSuming) an average sized human.
Do you see that? That extra large graphic that they have at the end. Look closely and see what the weight is for an average female.
166 pounds. I wish you could hear me screaming this in my head.
Look at the graphic. Look at it. The rounded abdomen, how the arms are bowed out an around like the poor 166 POUND person couldn't put her arms straight down because....HELL... SHE IS HUGE!
Now let me tell you something else.
In college I weighed 163 pounds. That was when I was in top physical condition. I was a college athlete. I worked pretty much daily. At that weight my size was between an 8 and 10. I felt pretty good about myself.
But hey, now? After seeing this graphic. NOW I know better. NOW I see what I REALLY must have looked like to everyone else.
I must have looked like a fat $#%.
So, I wonder what I look like to people now? At 236 pounds.
Gosh I shouldn't even be able to walk. I should be like Violet in Charlie and the Chocolate factory and have to be rolled around.
It is no wonder there so many people with body image issues.
