I'm a girl who is 5'7" and 150 lbs. I am not muscular and was wondering if that is too much for my size? My measurements are 36" 29" 36". People say I carry me weight well and I don't look that fat, but some people still think I should lose weight. My problem area is definitely my waist since a lot of girls on here say they are around 24-25" there and I'm several inches thicker :( Any advice?

My personal opinion? No, your weight is perfectly fine for your height. If i met you in person, and liked your face, and personality, your body would not hold me back. However, you are right about the waist. I am always more attracted to women with wide hips and a thin waist. But unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about that. People will tell you to target your abdominal region by doing some sit ups, but the truth is: you can not target areas to burn fat. You can target areas to build muscle, but you can not target areas to burn fat. The only way to burn fat is by running, but if you do that, you will lose fat everywhere and you will have the same hip-waist ratio, you'll just be smaller. Also if you do situps with no running, you will not see any progress. All you will do is get rock hard abs hidden by a layer of fat.
If you do sit ups AND run, your abs will become visable. But PLEASE don't do that, because there is almost no bigger turn off than abs on a woman 😖
So in my opinion, you do not have a bad body, so you should keep it the same, otherwise you will just make it worse.1
