How am I 23 percent body fat but I weigh so much for a girl?

Anonymous
So im losing weight and I started at 184 last month. The average girl would be pretty overweight at 167 lbs at 5ft7.5 .
For some reason I have 23 percent body fat and I’m not understanding why... do I just have the natural muscle of a man?

I measured at the army and also used the us navy method

At 160 lbs I’d be 19-20 percent which is considered athlete even though the females I know are like 130 at athlete

My goal is 10 percent body fat at 127 lbs
