Generally, we get ideas about what we should wear, what we should look like and how much we should weigh from the media. We have been conditioned to think that "thin is beautiful" and some of us go even further and think that "thinner is more beautiful".
There are some factors count :
- Your weight is partially defined genectically. Have look at your parents. What do their bodies look like. Yours probably similar.
- Bone structure or frame size is important. The ideal weight for two people of the same height but with different frames will be different.
- Body composition varies between individuals. Did you know that muscle tissue is more dense than fat ? Because of this, two people may weigh the same, but one is clearly chubby while the others look lean.
- Nature made it so that women are rounder than men. The female body and its hormones can't function properly if there is not enough fat in the body.
There's no such thing as an "ideal weight" for anybody.
Instead, we should focus on developing a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and plenty of physical activity. Our weight will then naturally find its healthy and correct level.
