How can I wear medium size 11 & 12 and weigh 254 lbs ?

Have I gained THAT much muscle or bone mass ( I have one of those body vibration machines ) What say you ?

Oops I am 5'4" and years ago I had weighed 200 lbs and wore a size 22.  I don't get it - I always have to lie about my weight and when I go to the doctor I get weighed on two or three scales

  • I agree it depends on the cut of the clothes and how tall you are but you say you are 5'4". I find it crazy that you weigh 254 lbs and wear an 11/12. However, why look a gift horse in the mouth? Be glad and enjoy it!

  • i say no. well, i wear size 12 and i'm pretty tall so i weigh more than someone who is short if you know what i mean. how tall are you? you will be able to weigh more the taller you are, but i highly doubt that you could weigh 254 lbs. and fit into a size 12 (even if it is muscle)

  • depends on the maker too - some labels are getting out of control with vanity sizing.

  • My doctor tells me I am healthy that I have very heavy bones - I know I am muscular but I just hate weighing so much - dang I could be a linebacker.

  • Sometimes it's the cut of the clothes. Nicer clothing seems to run bigger.
