Do you have good genetics for getting fit or being thin?
Do you have a lot of overweight people in your family, or mostly thinner people? Are there any athletes in your family? Anyone really into fitness?
I don't think I have bad genetics. I don't have a lot of people in my family that are overweight and most of the people that are overweight became overweight in adulthood. I don't have any athletes in the family though but I do have several family members that work out and don't look bad. My brothers workout (I think they do P90X) and have decent bodies. My sister runs and has run several marathons. So I guess, all in all, I have decent genetics for getting fit.
Are you trying to lose weight or get in shape? Stop by the Mommy Fitness board and say hello.
I have a couple family members on both sides that are over weight. My mom and brother are both over weight. I think I took after my dad though and got genetics from him that help me stay a bit thinner. No athletes in my family. My mom works out (as she is trying to lose weight) and I have a cousin that runs. But that is pretty much it.

My dad's side is primarily overweight, and my mom's side is thinner but no athletes or any that even work out...my mom walks and does several workout videos a week and looks great - most people think she's in her early 40s (she's 56). I take after her...I can look good if I work out...but like anyone if I eat too much I gain weight.

Surprise baby! due 3/27/2017
My mom and sisters are in good shape; my Dad was also in good shape until he got sick. He was never a professional athlete, but he did play basketball, baseball, and soccer for a while on community teams. My mom was an aerobics instructor when she was younger, so she was in really good shape. There are a few family members who are overweight, but by far the majority of the people on both sides of my family are reasonably trim and healthy.
