The waist is more concerning than weight :( for some taller people 160 is healthy.
I am over the average weight and under the average waist.

Nope, the closest I ever got to that was 162 at 9 months pregnant with my son. I'm now 16 weeks pregnant and still weigh less than 130.

8 months post pardum with second child.  Before I had babies, I was 125 and after the second, it was a miracle I got to 135.  (Gained 70 and lost 60 in a 1.5 yrs) Now I'm 145 and 5'6 so you made my day;)  Losing weight after a c-section and being in your early 30's is hard:( It will take me about another 6 months to get into the 130's again! banging head into wall

 I find it hysterical and everyone that knows me is shocked at how much I weigh and the fact that I am considered obese.  I'm not even close to fat though, it is muscle weight.  So glad that you find my body sad and scary though.

Hahahahaha. I don't judge them. I just get grossed out. It's not my fault they're gross. There are plenty of cool fat people.

I meant it's sad and scary that the average woman in America is overweight.

And if your weight is solid muscle, you're not considered obese.
