My proportions: March 21st

22 Mar

My waist: 28.5″
My hips: 37.8″
So my Waist to Hip Ratio is (Waist/Hips): .754
My BMI (I’m 5’6″) and weigh 134lbs: 21.6

Ideally according to BMI research I would be most attractive weighing 118-124lbs(19-20BMI). I am not a fun of BMI because I work out and have muscle and I just don’t feel like it is taken into account. I know I look great at 128 lbs, so maybe the 124lbs isn’t that far off. My waist-hip ratio kind of confirms some thoughts I’ve been having that I am gaining a straighter figure since starting to diet and workout..
That is the last thing I want! Anyone have any tips?? I’ve always felt that if I kept enough fat in my diet that I would keep a good proportion.

If you wanna find out your ratio and BMI I have added links!
Tips: Measure your hips at their largest spot (over your buttocks). Also, beware the Waist-Hip Ratio Calculator makes you measure to the nearest inch-I prefer to just pick up a calculator

    too much belly fat. Otherwise shapely but covered up with belly fat. More aerobics and a little strength training to get more muscle tone.

    Hon, you do NOT need to lose any more weight. You are at a healthy weight, and you are on the low end of that. A BMI of 16-19 is anorexic. I do not understand why we women do this to ourselves.

    Buffy the body (do a google) search might just have some tips for you…

    While targeting the area to lose the weight why not try this exercise to tighten the buttocks and thighs – it worked for me. ‘ I thought, as I turned to continue my way south along the road.
