Whenever I tell anyone my weight, male or female.. they always say the same thing: "You don't LOOK like you weigh 150lbs!" I know they mean it as a compliment, but they all keep saying the same thing... so I'm wondering now...

WHAT DOES 150lbs LOOK LIKE?

Any ladies want to share photos of yourself at 150lbs? Thanks. I'll take some of myself and post them up after the baby wakes up from her nap :)

eh, doesn't really matter... You are also 5'10" which is tall for a women, so your 150 is spread out. Now if you were 5'2" 150, you would look bigger because of the frame.
July 21, 2011 9:27 AM
I'm tall like you and even when I'm really skinny I weigh a lot more than most people. I see you want your goal weight to be 125. You will be sooo skinny at 125! OMG I couldn't even get my body that small. lol

150 here! Check out my pics.

I hate that statement, everyone carries weight differently. Image not displayed

And it all depends on your muscle tone too. I have weighed 150 at two very different times in my life. Once I was not working out and younger so I guess my metabolism was better. laugh But I looked a lot bigger than I did just 2 years ago (before I had my baby) I was weighing in between 150 and 147 and looked trimmer than I ever have. I had lots o muscles.

So I think it is a naive statement. Someone can be 150 and be "soft and puffy" and then someone can also be 150 and be lean and trim but with muscle.

Best advice, don't worry so much about that number look at your body and how you feel. Go by that. flowerforyou

Bump. 'Cause 150 is my goal!

I'm 5'5" and weigh 152. I wear a size 4 and people say I look good!! Slim, skinny, tiny, are all terms I've had applied lately. Odd too, since my goal is 135, to physically be at this point at 152 pounds.

go to mybodygallery.com enter your height, weight and body shape it will give you pics of women in their database with the same measurements it's really cool

I weigh not much over 150 and people say that to me all the time too!

I don't think there's one specific way that a woman looks at 150.

I think that everyone just has their own vision of what 150 lbs. looks like. And when you start to lose weight, people also get jerked out of their comfort zone with how you look and they can't imagine what you actually weigh.

I get told every week by the same vendor at my work that I am skinnier and skinnier every time he sees me. Well...I haven't lost anything in almost 6 weeks (because I took a break for maintenance) so I have NO IDEA what he's talking about!
