For me I consider Christina overweight. I consider myself overweight. Most people wouldn't call me fat, but for my height I am over what I *should* be. I know that people question BMI and all that other stuff, I do too ( when I was 100lbs I looked like Nicole Richie and it wasn't cute) so I think I should weigh 15-20 lbs less than what I do. For years I never considered Queen Latifah fat or overweight. Her structure held her weight well. Recently though, I have seen pics of her where she looked like she crossed over to the overweight side.Ok, what is everyone basing their perceptions of what is overweight on?
When Brittney Spears gained weight, I didn't think she was fat or overweight. She looked like she had a little gut. Christina has gained weight all over and refuses to come to terms with that in regards to her clothes. I wish I could squeeze back in my 4/6 but know that on my best day an 8 skirt will work and 10 pants will let me breath.
I thought so. My sister is 5'5", around 150 lbs and ranges from a size 6 (mostly) to a size 8. According to the BMI, she's overweight. People that are sick in the head would call her fat.BMI and sloppiness combined IMO.Ok, what is everyone basing their perceptions of what is overweight on?
This is why I brought up the body image issue thing. Because people throw these terms around and it damages people's perceptions of themselves, despite the reality. I don't know the reality for Christina, but I from what I can gather from being a pop culture junkie is that she grew up in front of the cameras from a rather young age and probably dealt with a lot of body image issues, trying to uphold the beauty standards set by society and the media.
The reality for my sister is that she has no ailments (ever it seems), works out regularly, eats pretty good, but she's considered overweight. I had to sit her down one day because her obsession about getting down to 135, which was a safe range she thought she should be in, and it was driving her mad. Now she's just maintaining, but I really think it's bad to base anything off of the BMI. That's just another opinion though.
People are all caught up with numbers in their jeans and on the scale, but they forget about how they feel. How you feel is how healthy you are.
