Smile What body type are you?

Which body type are you and I would really LOVE to hear 1 thing you like about your body type and 1 thing you don't.


Are you the:

Apple: Prone to getting 'the' stomach, but legs and arms are not so much of a problem.

Pear: Heaviest around the butt and thigh-section. You feel like you lose weight from the top down.

Hourglass: You know the type, gets a butt and a bust but the stomach and thighs seem to be untouched.



When striving for an image in your head, we all must remember we can only do what our bodies are built to do, and appreciating what you have goes a long way! It sure has helped me with my self-image!

I'm a watermelon, I guess - I gain all over!!

But I am very long-bodied, and long-legged, thus I hope to look like a supermodel when I am slimmer!

I never have given this much thought really...I tend to gain weight all over too but because I have super broad shoulders for my size I get away with a lot more weight on my hips....I think that's where I gain first....oh there and my face...

I'm pear-shaped. I'm heaviest around my butt and thighs. That's the first area where I gain weight and the last area where I lose weight. When I was at my goal weight my upper body didn't look a whole lot different than it does now, but my lower body was a lot smaller.

When I gained weight I think the last places I gained were my arms & face.

I'm somewhere between an hourglass and a pear. I'm not as bottom heavy as a pear, but I do gain in the stomach area (as well as everywhere else!). I tend to look "thick" rather than fat when I've gained weight.

I'm an apple, but I show in my face first (big time puffer fish face)
I like my lower legs and toes right now and that's about it.

Well...its strange. I USED to be bigger on top than on the bottom (I have a big chest), with a bit of a belly. I had teeny tiny hips and butt. I gained 35 pounds, and was pretty much even all over...now that I'm losing weight again, I seem to be losing it from my upper body first...so right now my hips/butt/belly are big, and my upper areas are nice! Sadly, I'm not sure I'm ever going to have the teeny tiny hips back...I think that has changed for good.

I gain all over. My belly gets huge very easily and is still quite big even.. but my legs are also huge... as are my arms and face, etc. Guess that makes me a watermelon too....LOL.

My 10 is a bit dented here and there.

I'm a pear - always have been. Although since menopause set in I've developed a little pot belly and my bust is bigger - BONUS! (who knew?). I am losing all over now it seems, one ounce at a time so it's a little hard to tell where it's coming off (although my lips do seem a tad slimmer )

I guess I qualify as an apple.
But when the weight is really out of control I tend to get chubby knees and cellulite on the back of my arms....eeeww!
Most of my weight is carried in my belly - aka the storage locker.

What do I like about my body? Hmm, well I build muscle quite easily, and have very muscular legs. I like that a lot

I'm an apple. Even now at goal range, I have a little belly, but it's much smaller than it was. The up-side is that my boobs are large and I have lean, musular thighs.

I am the definition of a pear. With my weightloss I look very slim in my upper body but my hips and thighs are still huge. Back 10 years ago when I weighed around 125lbs or so, I still felt I was fat coz my hips were huge.

I like the curve of my waist. It makes me look slim.
