So while catching up on my blog reading this morning I stumbled upon slimkatie's latest post over at Runs for cookies. She happened to mention her doctor commenting on how tiny her frame size was now and she had always assumed when she was bigger that she had a large frame size, too. And how finding out she was really petite all along was such a nice surprise.
Well, this got me to thinking about how I'm fairly sure I am of a larger frame size too and that it would be a bit of a shock to me if I found out I was actually a smaller frame size. I've used calculator's online before and they all said measure your wrist to find out your frame size. Well I was using this one today.. and it gave me a confusing result.
Unfortunately, the wrist and elbow methods do not agree with each other. The wrist method says that you have a broad body frame while the elbow method says that you have a thin body frame.
So now what? lol. I have no idea which to go by but of course they are all just a guess anyways and we will see whenever I lose all the rest of this weight. I imagine that I could be of a medium build then? I just felt I always had such broad hips and shoulders so it was natural I think I have a larger frame. Though my mom's half of the family is from Korea so they are all tiny Asian people. I seen pictures of my mom in her early 20s and she was quite petite back in the day!
Do you know your frame size? Do you think you'll be surprised to find out it was different than you thought? Have any of you who've already lost the weight been shocked to see such a huge difference in how little you are now?
