You do kinda stick out if you are thin. I really notice it in airports, but I am in airports a lot.

DH and I were not thin at the time. BMI-wise, he was probably around 31 (obese) and I was around 27 (overweight) at the time. And yet we were both far thinner than many of the people there. And we just looked healthier. Everyone else looked exhausted, pale, and sick. He and I both had energy, our skin tone looked healthy, and we weren't slumped over looking like sitting at a table was almost too much. Now, with his BMI around 28 and mine around 25, I'm guessing we would stand out even more.

ThyPeace, and we still don't count, in my mind, as thin. Over, leaving obesity and overweight behind is a really good thing. The goal now is strong and fast and healthy and preventing injury.
