I have mentioned before in previous posts how I am starting to feel more and more normal out in public. I don't feel like my size makes me stick out like a sore thumb anymore. Just for curosity sake, I googled to find out some information about the "average" American woman.
According to the Center for Disease Control (2002):
"The average female weight is 164.3 pounds. The average adult BMI is 28."
This is from an unofficial source....The average female clothing size is a size 14.
Slowly but surely, I am creeping towards becoming average. I have always excelled in everything I've put my mind to....so I intend to become way above average by the time everything is said and done.
