You're good, I guess that's exactly my situation. I have most of my fat stored on my thighs and that contrast is what makes the fat seem to stand out. And I have wide hips.
Maybe you're shorter, but I'm 23, for me it's easier to maintain this weight. Age makes such a difference. When I was 16 I could eat crap all day long and I was skinny. Now only a few years have passed and so much has changed. If I change my way of eating only for a week I can slowly see the pounds piling on.
Not sure what hip thrusts are. Do you mean this? http://followthelita.files.wordpress...ining_u129.jpg
