Do you think puppy fat still exists into your late teens and early 20's?

I'm 19, everyone says I look 16. I have a kind of childish look and I'm not fat but I guess maybe a little chubby... I'm 5 ft 7 and around 120 pounds. I keep worrying about it and my mom told me that normally around my age it's normal to be a little bigger and then when you get to 21 or 22 the weight usually comes off (I have two older sisters)... like puppy fat right? I was thinking about it, look at jennifer aniston in first series of friends, she was chubbier then in series 8 or 9... or other celebrities when they were around my age... or is this just something my mom said to make me feel better? Am I too old to call it puppy fat anymore?

  • Never compare yourself to a celebrity. A lot of them have work done, they have chefs, and trainers to help them maintain or get a nice physique. You an the average woman.

    At 5'7 and 120 lbs you are not fat, actually you are quite slim.

    It is true, as you get older your metabolism tends to slow down and you gain weight. But at 21 or 22 I am sure you will look pretty much the same , this usually happens with people that are a little older (I heard metabolism slowing down happens around 30 or so.)

    Maintain a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. With that you won't have anything to worry about.

  • How is 120 pounds chubby? You should be more worried about dying to Anorexia at the age of 25.

  • i think it depends on the person, when I think of people losing baby fat, they could lose it after elementary school, after junior high, or after high school...just depends. I lost that weight in junior high I guess.

    I wouldn't look at celebrities as an example because you don't know what they're doing to their bodies or their faces. Usually they have to keep in shape and sh*t, and do all sorts of diets, wear all sorts of makeup, get all sorts of plastic surgery, photoshop, not to mention the camera, lighting, and angles can make them look "chubbier" as well. anyway from what you described, you're not chubby lol. you'll probably have a hard time believing that from people over the internet but whatever. it could just be your face. maybe you have bigger cheeks. in the end though, I don't think you're too old to be changing in the body or face..

  • "5ft 7 and around 120 pounds" that is far from chubby! Do not worry about it.

  • Hunny, I'm 130 pounds and 5'6" and I've never been called chubby or 'a little bigger'. It's nonsense that you think you're overweight just because of the bullsh*t your mom spews. She's supposed to make you feel good about yourself, not the other way around.

    I'm sure you look fine for your height and weight. If you're talking about baby fat in your face, that may or may not go away as you get older. Either way, looking youthful will be a good thing as you get older. But if it's your body that you _think_ looks plumper, hitting the gym and toning up will take care of that in a snap.
