I don't like weighing myself either. For someone who's 5', 130lbs sounds like a LOT, but even though it's above my ideal, I don't look terribly overweight. I always used to hear, "your weight should be 5lbs over 100 for every inch you are over 5'" and that made me feel terrible. Like you, I carry a lot of muscle and I also have a large chest.This is why I don't like to weigh myself. I weighed myself at the gym yesterday. 140 pounds. I am 5'3". I feel like that is heavy for someone my height! I know I am a mesomorph with a lot of muscle, so that makes me heavier, but I just hate seeing that number. I am 5lbs heavier than my boyfriend That puts me at the extreme high end of a "healthy" BMI (which I know is a load of bull for athletes anyway, but still).
I'm just going to go with how my clothes fit from now on.
The lowest my weight has been as an adult was 112 and I was SKINNY, like size zero skinny. That didn't last long, and I was 18. The fittest I have felt in my life was when I weighed around 126-127 and was doing power yoga 3-4x a week. Even though my weight is pretty close to that now, I unfortunately have a bit more fat than muscle at the moment, so I'm trying to get back to that point.
