    Am I too fat or too skinny for my body type?

    Ok so everyone I know says I am "just so tiny!" but I don't think I am. I am 20 and weigh 119. When I was 19 I weighed around 110 so I have gained weight...hopefully more muscle than fat. Although I do consider myself skinny-fat right now, but whenever I comment on how I need to lose weight everyone tells me I need to gain weight...even my trainer at my gym one time told me I could gain a little weight. Also every guy I have been with has always tried to get me to gain weight...Sometimes I think I look ok and weigh ok for my age and body type but other times I feel super fat compared to other girls. My sister says I should lose weight because she is super tiny. She is 24, 5'4 and 96 pounds so compared to her I feel like a whale. What do you guys think? Should I lose some weight or gain weight (as in muscle)? I will admit that I am not perfectly happy with my body, but if I should gain weight how much is ok to gain without losing my figure?

    Too skinny. Last year I was 5'8 and 118lbs... not attractive. Build some muscle and eat! I have gained about 18 lbs and look better now than I ever have. Even got my ass back

    Gosh you make me blush Kemo... such a romancer
    Every time you tell me how you should've, could've or would've it reminds me how I do, did and will. Your defeatist attitude and lack of willpower pushes me harder to not be like you.
    You can call me callous, egotistical, delusional or vain. I am fully aware that I am nowhere near perfect. But despite your detraction's and insults, the fact of the matter is that Im doing what you wish you were, to one day become your complete antithesis.

    Definitely skinny fat. I was 115 in my teens and went up to almost 125 in my early twenties. It looked nice, but the bad thing was it was a direct result of my metabolism slowing down. Also, my body was too "soft" for my liking. I decided to go down to 120 and then gain weight in muscle format from there. Change your eating habits now before it gets too hard to do it. Lift, too.

    You and your sister are both underweight. I don't understand your comment about losing your figure. When a person is underweight/skinny, there isn't much of a figure.

    Just being honest.

    Too skinny- i'm much shorter then you, and am trying to gain weight to go back to being heavier then you are now. check out the nutrition section here, and work to build muscle with your trainer. You could probably stand to put on 20lbs, but do it as muscle. Best of luck
