Oh. Okay.

FTR, I didn't find any of that particularly radical. I'm well aware that heavy people can be in better shape than small people.

My body's set point seems to be 113lbs, since that is the precise number it always seems to be. My pre and final post pregancy weight were 113. Now, no matter if I'm in good shape, or squishy, I'm 113. My body just likes it. Even at that though, I have had high cholesterol levels in the past and my cardio fitness was crap up until a couple months ago.

If you want proof that bigger girls can be in shape you don't need to look any further than roller derby. When I first started playing my endurance was terrible, and some of those bigger girls could skate circles around me.
