what do you consider "fat"?

Posted by   + Show Post
All these fat posts are being made so I'm curious what is considered to be a "fat" weight? I know height changes it a little so I'm just asking for an average..

 I consider someone fat when they have very prominent visible layers of fat on their body.

Gonna go with the fat rolls as an indication of fat, although overweight hits before that.  I don't mean the rolls in the belly when you sit down, I mean the bra fat back rolls and the muffin tops and the flabby arms.  Yes, you can most definitely be skinny fat as well.  Fat is going to look different on different bodies, as well.  The apple shaped ladies have it tough for sure, but they can have KILLER legs.  =)  I'm just a box so I have to be muscular to look good at all. =/

Well I think you can be a size 14 or above but it depends on what you wear. Their are a lot of heavier people than look better than thin people

That's not fair!! lol I'm really flat chested. My stomach is slightly smaller than my boobs, but not much, but it's not because I have a big stomach, just really small boobs hahaha

You're joking right? I'm 5'9 and if I weighed under 120 I would look like death. At my smallest I was 132 and people asked me constantly if I was anorexic. 140 is the absolute smallest I would want to be.

Anything over 120lbs. Disgusting!!!!

There's not a "fat weight". It totally depends on your height. If you're 5'0 and 150, you're fat, but if you're 5'10 and 150, you're skinny. It also depends on how much muscle you have because muscle weighs more than fat.

When I was a size 14, I was fat. Right now I'm in a 12 and working my way into a 10. I'm slightly overweight, but not what people would consider fat.
