    I agree. Bascially yeah I agree you look(ed) like shit but I'll be PC and say your bones are big lmao. How the hell can somebody see your bones through fat and clothes? Remember those x-ray glasses everybody wanted to buy from the back of the comic book? They have a pair of those to make that comment true.

      Large frame = wider shoulders and hips, thicker limbs, bigger hands and feet. Plenty of people will label any visually large woman as fat, and sometimes it is not deserved. Also, someone with a small frame can have more body fat and still weigh the same and look visually the same size as someone with a large frame with less body fat.

        Big framed isn't big boned either. And big hands and feet can happen independently of either. Again, speaking from experience, I don't have particularly wide shoulders and my wrists are just under 7" in circumference (despite my height of 6'3.5") and yet I have extremely large hands and feet.

        • I've often had people tell me that I don't look my weight. And, I am actually fairly small-boned (based on wrist size, and width of shoulders)... I think it might be because I have always been a bit muscled, which weighs without a lot of bulk. (fatty, marbled muscle, for sure...)

          I try to tell no one what I'm doing, really. It's a bit hard, though, when people have known me as "the Vegan" for so many years.

          • You could just have really dense bones like me. I can splinter a hockey stick over this sexy ulna.

              You know some poor schmuck out there is desperately Googling ulna... and winding up very disappointed.

                Ulna sounds more like a girl private part and Alex is clearly a guy's name. You know, despite the fact that there are names like Alexandra, Alexis, Alexa and Alexandria for girls and the only name which can really be shortened to that for guys is Alexander.

                  Hey brilliant... all of those "girl" names you listed are feminized versions of Alexander.
                  Derp.

                  Now google uvula, because that sounds like even more fun than ulna! Right?

                        Yeah, I think people are sort of a... mix. I am very short, with small wrists (I had to measure them to buy wrist guards and they were small enough to buy "junior" sized), scrawny feet and hands, and comparatively broad shoulders. Go figure. I've also always had pretty solid legs, and I'm pretty sure that there's no genetic way they could EVER be skinny, because those bones seem pretty darn solid.

                        So yeah, in a way "big boned" is sort of a misnomer of a term, as people are all just structured differently. Someone who is narrower, could actually have more solid bones, but be less broad than someone else.

                        Anyway, if someone ever calls me "big boned" now, my general response is to say, "Nah, I'm just fat"... I'd rather call a spade a spade.

                          I can deadlift about 1.5 times my weight but my hands can hold twice my bodyweight (at least). Unfortunately I will never do a powerlifting meet because regular deadlifts are impossible for me. It's a combination of my height and hip structure. I can sumo deadlift quite well though.

                          • I must just be fucked, then, because I do have all of the above. Wide hips and shoulders, huge hands and feet, thick ankles/knees/elbows/wrists, huge head, etc. Small waist, though, so there's that at least.

                            Anyway, I do still have too much body fat for my liking, but I also have huge bones. I am always going to. Ain't nothing I can do about that. And having huge thick everything makes me look fatter than I really am because I am visually large. In reality, my BF% is around 25%.

                              Awwww. Eh, at least it's comforting to say that you can deadlift whatever you do, raw. I can only grip around 1.1x bodyweight, and then it starts to slip >.> I hate having tiny, weak hands haha.

                              What's your hip structure like? My boyfriend is over 6'2" and he can deadlift 4 plate (trained for like half a year to get to it) so I'm sure you could probably do the same?

                              • I have slightly wider hips than the average guy and the joints don't allow me to put my legs narrow enough to grip outside of them and still reach the bar. But like I said I can sumo deadlift just fine and all that really matters is getting the weight off the ground, right?
